Great Lakes IPA & Commodore Perry IPA

Great Lakes Brewing Co opened in Cleveland’s Ohio City in 1986, capping their first bottles by hand. After a couple expansions in the 90s, and another in the early 2000s, Great Lakes Brewing Co was large enough to offer their fine brews for distribution, and onto our shelves for you.

Great Lakes IPA – Perfect for summer, this lightly filtered IPA is dry-hopped, and brewed with “easy drinking” in mind. 6.5% ABV

Commodore Perry IPA
– A bolder selection from Great Lakes Brewing Co, Commodore Perry is brewed with “an arsenal of caramel malt flavors.” – 7.7% ABV

  • Llama & Alain de La Treille Cabernet Francs


    We’ve selected a pair of special Cabernet Francs for this month’s featured wines.

    Llama 2018 Cabernet Franc – Belasco De Baquedano
    While the wines of Belasco De Baquedano have a deep history, Llama 2018 Cabernet Franc is described as a “modern wine”. The winemaker’s tasting notes include:

    “Fruity aromas, ripe black fruits, stand out against a background of fine toasty hints from ageing in top-quality oak.”

    Alaine De La Treille Cabernet Franc
    Alaine De La Treille Cabernet Franc comes from the Loire Valley region of France. The wine is named for the memory of a local farmer, wine drinker and friend of the winemaker, who describes Alaine De La Treille as:

    “…Perfumed, showing juicy red & black fruit and spices…soft tannins lend structure and create a delightfully fruity red wine.”

    Silver Branch Brewing Co – Eternal and Delusional Optimists, Power Boots, Sisyphus

    Silver Branch IPA cans
    Silver Branch Brewing Company was founded in early 2017 in downtown Silver Spring, Maryland. Beer lovers Christian and Brett take inspiration from brewing cultures across Europe and the United States. Silver Branch Brewing Co is both a taproom and production brewer, and we’re proud to offer these local brews on our shelves.

    This month our featured beers are four distinct IPAs from Silver Branch Brewing Co.

    Eternal Optimist – Triple IPA
    This Triple IPA weighs in at a heft 10.6% ABV, brewed with Citra Incognito, Lorel Cryohops, El Dorado and Columbus hops.

    Power Boots – Sour IPA
    Silver Branch describes this IPA as a “Sour hop bomb”, brewed entirely with Pink Boots hops. 5.8% ABV

    Sisyphus – Double IPA
    This Double IPA is a new version of the brewery’s flagship beer. Brewed this time around with Mosaic Incognito, Strata, El Dorado and Amarillo hops. 8.3% ABV

    Delusional Optimist 2 – Hazy IPA

    Archery Summit Pinot Noir – Willamette Valley – 2018


    After years as a winemaker, Gary Andrus founded his first Archery Summit vineyard in 1993. Andrus settled first in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, known for its pinot noir vineyards. Our featured wine is one of those Pinot Noirs.

    Archery Summit Pinot Noir – Willamette Valley – 2018
    The winemaker considers this a bottle that “epitomizes the spirit of the valley.” With tasting notes including fennel, mulberry and dried anise on the nose, and bramble and wild huckleberry on the palate.

    Wine Spectator awards this 2018 Archery Summit Pinot Noir a score of 93 points, with tasting notes that include “floral blueberry and raspberry flavors that gather accents of orange blossom and spice cinnamon.”
