Beer and Wine Weekly Update, January 26, 2015
By Joey Bowling, Beer and Wine Manager
New to City Market:
Straight from Colorado, one of the USA’s most prolific states for brewing suds, Oskar Blues is in the house! I’ve been hearing good things about this beer for a couple of years now and finally have a chance to lay my hands on some - and so do you! Old Chub Scotch Ale (8% ABV, rich malts and smoked grains, Bronze Medal at the 2011 GABF), Ten Fidy Imperial Stout (10.5% ABV, chocolate malt and roasted barley, 98 IBUs), Momma’s Little Yella Pils (2011 GABF Best Bohemian Style Pilsner), and of course, the brew that made them famous, Dale’s Pale Ale (6.5% ABV, balanced hops and malts, 65 IBUs), are all here in frosty cans.
Additionally, 21st Amendment Brewing Company from San Francisco has arrived. Currently we have the Brew Free or Die IPA and the Sneak Attack Saison. Check ‘em out!
February Wines Under $10
It’s February, and we’re all hopefully going strong on our New Year’s resolutions. Was one of yours to drink more organic wine? If so, you’re in luck! This month we are featuring Frey Organic Natural Red and White wines for under $10.
The red is medium-bodied, balanced, and smooth, with a bright garnet color. It is crisp and fruity on the finish. The white is bright, crisp, and dry, filled with pleasing flavors of ripe melon and pear. Both are perfect for a mid-winter dinner party or a cozy movie night at home with a loved one.
