Brilla! Prosecco


We’ve chosen a nice Italian Prosecco for our July 2020 wine selection, Brilla! This sparkling wine hails from the Prosseco DOC and is made entirely of Glera grapes. The winemaker describes Brilla! as “Delicate and complex…with fruity notes reminiscent of peach and green apple with secondar notes of acacia and lilac.” Reviewers consistently call Brilla! Prosecco a great value. A perfectly refreshing selection for these hot summer evenings.

Maine Beer Co – Lunch India Pale Ale



Our featured beer for July 2020 is another exciting brew from Maine Beer Company. “Lunch” is juicy IPA, named for a whale often seen off the Maine coast. The brewer’s tasting notes include flavors of “orange, grapefruit and lemon, with pine and herbal undertones”. In addition to three types of hops, Maine Beer Co. brews this IPA with variety of malts for added subtle sweetness.

Reviewers at BeerAdvocate.com currently rate Lunch IPA as “World Class”, earning a whopping 97 point score of over 5,800 ratings.
