Kavalan King Car Whisky – “King Car is the name of the Taiwanese company that owns the Kavalan brand and this lavishly packaged single malt is its standard bearer and it’s not hard to see why. This has exotic fruit, cream toffee, and soft banana on the nose with bitter orange, dark chocolate and pepper on the palate. It’s rapier-sharp, clean, and drying rather than sweet on the finish.” 90 Points Whisky Advocate

BEERs

Able Seedhouse + Brewery 6 pk Cans-"The first light of each day is fresh start. A reset. Whether you’re waking up in the wilderness. Or laboring in a re-purposed light bulb factory in Northeast Minneapolis, creating a new take on the polarizing IPA. Both offer a different perspective. But only one has a friendly handshake's worth of dank hops to satisfy IPA lovers, while being fruity and clean enough to make any beer drinker see the style in a new light"  Color:  Golden;  Hops:  Falconer’s Flight, Azacca, El Dorado; Malts:  American 2-row, English Pale Ale, Caramel malt. (6% ABV / 60 IBU).  $9.99

Surly #Merica! 12pk Cans-"Light gold in color, #Merica! is an old-school pre-Prohibition American Lager that was brewed in 2015 for the Annual 4th of July party put on by the Minneapolis-based punk band Dillinger Four. One of the only beer styles truly born in the U.S.A, pre-Prohibition American Lagers used corn as an integral part of the flavor profile, rather than as a simple substitute for barley malt. The flaked corn used in #Merica! comes across as a subtle, fresh corn flavor, while soft hop aromatics come from Warrior and Willamette hops, which add a mild fruity, herbal character that stays in the background. #Merica! is perfect for a hot summer day and celebrating the country’s birthday and 21 years of Dillinger Four".                    (5% ABV) $15.99

Dogfish Head Flesh & Blood IPA 6 pk Cans- - "Flesh & Blood began with a ton of real citrus including lemon flesh and blood orange juice—hence the name—plus orange and lemon peel. Then the brewers began searching for the perfect combination of hops to perfectly complement the citrus flavors. After trialing number of different hops one-by-one, they emerged with Warrior and Centennial.  So what does this focus on simple, pure unadulterated fruit mean in terms of the aromatics and flavors in this beer? Flesh & Blood balances the resinous hoppy characteristics of an American IPA with the explosive zesty fruitiness and subtle drying tartness of citrus to deliver a highly quaffable ale that’s incredibly unique and lovely to down the whole year round"  (7.5% ABV / 45 IBU) $13.99

WINE

Pomelo Rosé 2016 – “On the southern end of the Sierras, the gentle and warm slopes of Linden Hill develop ripe and abundant fruit flavors ideal for Grenache and Syrah grapes used to blend Rosé. Luscious and refreshing, a bounty of summer strawberry and crisp cranberry flavors give this Rosé a lively structure, keeping the palate energized.” Perfect with BBQ Shrimp!

Suggested:  $13.99  |  Liquor Boy:  $10.99

Hecht & Bannier Rosé 2016 – “Floral and spicy expression with ripe raspberry, a round palate with flavors of cherry and lifted by bright pineapple. Strawberry, watermelon and pomegranate nuances abound in this delectable crispy and dry wine” Outstanding with a nice light pasta dish!

Suggested:  $19.99  |  Liquor Boy:  $15.99

Day Owl Rosé 2016

“Emboldened by vivacious dark cherry, dried strawberry, plum, lavender, and vanilla, Barbera is akin to Nebbiolo’s spunky, scandalous little sister. Like the best things in life, this Italian varietal is meant to be enjoyed young (aka now), so seize the moment. Bright, citrusy, and effortlessly cool, this versatile wine pairs perfectly with whatever the day throws at it.”

Suggested:  $14.99  |  Liquor Boy:  $11.99

Gassier Sables D’azur Rosé 2016

"Elegant nose with delicate hints of small red fruits (Red Currant) and sweet citrus fruits (clementine, sweet grapefruit). A dry fresh and clean rose’ wine, with crispy acidity, and a wonderful souvenir of Provence!”

Suggested:  $14.99  |  Liquor Boy:  $11.99

Château Pesquié Terrasses Rosé 2016

“Supple and pure with notes of white peach, rose and strawberry, medium bodied, lightly textured, pure and deliciously quaffable on the palate. Made from a direct press of Cinsault, Grenache and Syrah, it’s perfect on a hot day”!

Suggested:  $18.99  |  Liquor Boy:  $12.99

Juan Gil Shania Rose 3 Liter Box Wine

Suggested:  $23.99  |  Liquor Boy:  $19.99

“This Gil Family Estates Spanish Rose is fresh and crisp with notes of strawberry, cherries, fresh cut watermelon and dried herbs. Pairs perfectly with spicy sushi, hot chicken wings or BBQ ribs. 12.5% ABV

Champalou Vouvray

Suggested:  $21.99  |  Liquor Boy:  $17.99

"The Champalou house style produces wines of great elegance and tenderness, highly aromatic with impeccable balance.The freshness and delicate aromas of the wine make it a perfect partner with grilled fish and white meats, shellfish, roasted vegetables and oriental food. When young, this is also a first-rate aperitif wine."

Montoya Cabernet

Suggested:  $16.99  |  Liquor Boy:  $13.99

“Montoya is what Cabernet Sauvignon exemplifies.  With aromas of black pepper and currant, Montoya delivers a unique and rewarding wine experience.  Matured with a balance of French and American oak, Montoya has intense flavors of blackberry and plum, with lasting vanilla finish.”

Raza Vinho Verde

Suggested:  $9.99  |  Liquor Boy:  $7.99

“This versatile wine is a blend of 3 of the typical grapes used for making Vinho Verde, 50% Arinto, 35% Azal and 15% Trajadura.  Light and fresh with bright citrus on the nose and palate.  Refreshing through and through with a bit of spritz.  This wine is a departure from the “sweet” Vinho Verdes that are commonly found in most stores.  The fruit is still front and center but the acidity keeps this wine crisp and clean with a hint of minerality, similar to a Spanish Albarino.”

Matias Riccitelli “Hey Malbec” Malbec

Suggested:  $21.99  |  Liquor Boy:  $16.99

“100% Malbec is incredibly well-balanced as an Argentina meets France in its interpretation of this grape.  Lush and richly flavored as you would expect Argentina to bring, balanced by the earth and acid you would expect from Cahors, France.  Juicy black fruits combine with violets and black pepper, with soft and ripe tannins leading to a soft and opulent finish.  Lovely on its own or with grilled meat.”
