Bottle conditioned beers
While you’re shopping and looking through our beer fridges you may notice certain bottles and packages have the words “bottle conditioned” written on them. What are bottle conditioned beers and how do they differ from other beers?
July Wines Under $10
Featuring two wines from Austria. Pannonica Red and White, $9.99 each. Pannonica is what the Romans called the land near the Danube River, where these wines are from.
The white has a nose of apricot, roses, and lime, followed by apple and mineral on the palate. Pair it with fresh lobster or baked chicken breast.
The red features dark berries and black peeper on the nose, with juicy blackberry and spice on the tongue. This is an excellent red to pair with BBQ ribs or burgers.
