Beer Tasting 4 - 7pm Friday, Oct 18 and more...

Great turnout for our opening tasting last night. Frank came by and showed off some great wines and the feedback was great. A big thanks to Kobrand and Frank for getting us going in style. Tonight we are being visited by a couple of people and we will have two tastings happening at the same time. First, we have our standard Friday beer, or in this case, cider tasting. We also have an anniversary Champagne tasting to keep the celebration going. Scroll down to see the details. Come and celebrate with us and say hi! We would love to have you.

Your host is Colin from Downeast Cider.

Apple                   $8.59/4pc
Original Blend is the Auerbach to our Celtics, the Satisfaction to our Stones, the Agent K to our Men In Black, our foundation. From its humble beginnings in the basement of a Bates College dormitory, Original Blend is the result of hundreds of test batches aimed at crafting the best damn hard cider you've ever tasted. Original Blend is made from freshly pressed local apples because we not only believe in high quality cider, we believe in America. We use a secret blend of Red Delicious, McIntosh, Cortland, and Gala apples, and NEVER add concentrate, artificial flavors or sweeteners. Original Blend is the way cider should be.

Cranberry  $8.59/4pc
A lot of cranberries grow in Massachusetts and an unnamed member of Downeast Cider has an affinity for them, dried cranberries, cranberry juice, and most of all, Cranberry Blend. This interesting twist on Original Blend won't make your lips pucker but will bring a smile.

Your host is Frederick Leger from Canard Duchene

Located in the Montagne de Reims, this Champagne is a subtle blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay that is carefully aged in the long galleries of the underground cellars in Ludes.Characterized by fresh fruit aromas jostling with brioche notes, the sign of good aging, this is a light-hearted Champagne, perfect for every occasion.Very classy, complex and structured with excellent fruit and a long, toasty finish.The Pinot Noir being dominant contributes to the wine's superb structure.

Canard Duchene Rosé NV $36.99
Canard Duchene Brut NV $29.99
