Loads of exciting new wine and beer this week!
La Stoppa 'Stoppa' 2002
This is a very special wine in that it's only ever been released to us once! The vines that made this were replanted with native grape varieties after 2002 so it will never be offered again in this blend. This is made from a blend of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 20% other Bordeaux varieties from 90+ year old vines. 14 months in wood and 12 years in the bottle. This is directly from the winery cellar. No filtration. A very special wine indeed!

Het Anker Gouden Carolus Christmas
Brewed in August, the beer rests a few months to reach an ideal balance. This uses three exclusively Belgian hops, 6 different spices and a top fermenting yeast with the beer also lagered for 3 weeks.
Boulevard Brewing Co. Dark Truth Imperial Stout
This is the base beer to their barrel aged imperial stouts and their imperial stouts made with coffee and other adjuncts. This uses barley, wheat, rye, and oats, Belgian yeast and German noble hops. Offering flavors of espresso, crème brulée, plum like fruitiness, spicy herbal hop flavors with a dry, lightly smoky finish. A must have for the imperial stout fan!
