Alaskan drinkers were recently introduced to Belching Beaver from San Diego, CA. Now we have a couple new releases: the Barrel-Aged Mexican Chocolate Peanut Butter Imperial Stout is as good as it sounds, and we also have bottles of their Batch 5 Blackberry Sour which combines Brett and Lactic tartness with copious berries.
Ghostfish Brewing Company
It felt like a tease when Ghostfish Brewing and their delicious gluten-free beers were introduced in Alaska, only to disappear later. Well, they’re back in a big way. We have their core lineup of Grapefruit IPA, Vanishing Point Pale, Shrouded Summit White, and Meteor Shower Blonde, in addition to new 22 oz bottles of Ghost Pepper Saison and Hibiscus Cranberry Gosefish.
Alaskan Cranberry Tart
This is not your typical wheat beer. Alaskan Brewing threw in generous amounts of cranberries and aromatic spruce tips to create something which is soft soft and edgy, with a nice balance of tart and sweet.
Deschutes The Ages
This multi-year blend is inspired by classic Gueuzes (Belgian lambics). This is a complex and flat-out beautiful beer, with combined elements of spice, sweet tang, estery fruit and savory goodness.
Founders Barrel-Aged Beers
These hefty 11%+ ABV treats are both aged in barrels for extra strength, flavor and mouthfeel. Barrel Runner combines bright Mosaic hops with rum barrels, and Backwoods Bastard (a returning favorite) combines malty scotch ale with bourbon barrels. Both are strong, sticky, and sweet in very different ways.
It truly is a wonderful thing when winemakers can produce wine which is delicious, organic and affordable. Such is the case with Tarantas Wines from Spain; we now carry bottles of their Cava, Monastrell and Tempranillo.
Biokult Grüner Veltliner
We’re currently (well, kinda always) having a lovefest with Austrian wine, especially when it’s organic. This certified biodynamic white has notes of pear and lemon with just a hint of flinty smoke.
Blaufränkisch is an intimidating name for Lemberger, which is mostly grown in Austria and Germany but also some New World Places like Washington State. This beautiful bottle holds a red which merges oak and a touch of smoke with dark fruit flavors.
Heidi Schrock Rosé Biscaya
Mildly tangy and with a touch of savoriness, this Austrian rosé blend uses a variety of different grape varieties sourced from four vineyards in the Burgenland Appellation.
Cameron Clos Electrique Blanc
It doesn’t get talked about enough, but Oregon is making some of the best New World Chardonnays right now. This Cameron Chard is vibrant, rich and downright delicious.
CIDER & MEAD
WildCraft Cider Works
Two new ciders from WildCraft in Oregon! Their Sage Cider is herbal, dry and aromatic, while their Kiwi Sour is tart, slightly sweet and oh so tasty.
These new ciders from a family operated company in Auburn, Washington are made sustainably and without concentrates. We are now carrying The Explorer Hopped Cider, The Legend Lemongrass Cider, and The Scout Hopped Marionberry Cider.
Grimfrost Mead & Dansk Mjod
Say hello to Grimfrost Mead, who are careful to use ingredients exclusively from Sweden to give you a taste of ancient viking Scandinavia. We have bottles of their Lingonberry Suttunger Brew, Sweet Honey Jarl’s Brew, and Bilberry Bear’s Feast Brew. In addition to these, Ribe Mjod from Dansk Mjod has returned! They add unfiltered, unpasteurized apple juice to their classic honey base.
From Mclaren Vale in Australia comes this wonderful line of mead. Liqueur Mead begins with their spiced mead and is blended with special herbs and spices before being fortified and aged for 12-15 months in bourbon barrels. The sparkling mead is easy drinking with a touch of sweetness and acidity. The honey mead uses pure South Australian that has a golden color with floral and marmalade sweetness.
Bartolo Nardini has been around since the late 18th century, and there’s no wrong way to drink their fantastic liqueurs (well, maybe that’s not true). The point is you can enjoy this amaro and these delicious grappas by themselves, in cocktails or even with some espresso.
Martini & Rossi Vermouth
This internationally recognized brand has been making vermouth in Italy since 1847, and we are now happy to carry their high-end Reserva Speciale Vermouth Rubino and Reserva Speciale Vermouth Ambrato.
Rogue’s whiskeys have gotten a makeover! We have handsome new bottles of their Oregon Single Malt Whiskey and Dead Guy Whiskey, distilled in small batches from the same malts as Dead Guy Ale.
Dulce Vida 80 Proof Tequilas
Dulce Vida believes in the importance of sustainable farming, nutrient-rich composting, recycling, and the general health of our communities. They also believe in delicious tequila, and we’re very pleased to carry their lineup of Blanco, Reposado and Añejo 80 proof tequilas.
Jack Daniels Single Barrel Barrel-Proof Whiskey
Here’s a new high-end release from Jack Daniels, and this one is bottled right from the barrel with no dilution, making it just north of 127 proof. This brings some real heat in the mid-palate, along with delicious flavors of caramel, burnt oak, and cinnamon spice.
Joto Junmai Ginjo
This bright and floral Junmai Ginjo is brewed by Taka Yamauchi, the man behind the ever-popular Watari Bune. This brewery is considered a national cultural landmark, and this stylish bottle has succulent, rich flavors of ripe peach and melon.
Fukucho Moon on the Water Junmai Ginjo
This stunning Junmai Ginjo is made by one of the few female brewmasters in Japan. This incredibly round and luscious saké combines flavors of ripe cantaloupe and anise with floral hints of fennel, white pepper and lime. This could pair with anything from shellfish to bitter chocolate. Simply divine.
Yamada Shoten “Everlasting Roots” Junmai
The high polishing rate of this traditional and handcrafted saké give it a defined fruit and floral expression while simultaneously offering rich umami flavors from the hida-homare rice. This richness and complexity make it ideal for drinking either warm or chilled. The gorgeous label is just a bonus.
Bushido The Way of the Warrior Ginjo Genshu
This stylish one cup saké has huge flavors of tart raspberry, pear and watermelon, with subtle floral notes and a spice on the finish. Drinking this undiluted genshu is an important step in discovering your destiny as a saké warrior.
