Against The Grain Pile of Face -What’s the first thing you need to do when you start a brewery? Develop your logo, of course. With any potentially decent brewery, your logo must be a skull, it has to be a skull, you’ll be laughed out of the room if you don’t have a skull. So we went hunting in the area where all the great skulls have come from and were shit out of luck. By those fateful dumpsters all we found was this deformed neanderthal type deal, or maybe it’s from an ape, and a big ol’ pile of face. To celebrate our lack of success in finding a really cool skull, we are embracing another required cliché by brewing this American IPA. A modicum of simple malts provide the mediocre backbone to the mountain of various hops that are utilized and rotated throughout the brewing process. Look for dank overtones supported by various citrus and heirloom fruits. It’s the straight forward IPA that you always wanted from us. You lucky bastard. 6.5% ABV

New Wine This Week

(On-Premise Consumption or Off-Premise Crowlers)

Keush Origins Sparkling – Keush winery was created by Vahe Keushguerian with a desire to create a product that married extreme high elevation farming and un-grafted ancient varietals. The vineyards are planted on rich volcanic soil. It is an opus with a 6000 year origin. The vineyards are positioned 500 metres from the Armenian/Azeri border and at 1800 meters are the highest in the country and among the highest in the world. Keush is a pioneer in making a Méthode Traditionelle sparkling wine from indigenous Armenian grape varietals.

Winemaker Arman Manoukian was born and raised in the wine region of Vayots Dzor. Arman received his BA and MA degrees in Viticulture at the Yerevan State Agrarian Institute and then went onto continue his education at the Viticulture and Enology School of Montpellier, France. He has been the chief winemaker for Keush since its inception in 2013. Jerome Barret is consulting winemaker. He has extensive experience working in Champagne, having worked as cellar master for two major champagne houses; Nicolas Feuillatte and Champagne Boizel.

Grapes sourced from Vayots Dzor province in Armenia. The vineyards are un-grafted, 60- 100 years old. Located between 1500- 1800m above sea level.

These are some of the highest elevation vineyards in the northern hemisphere, and at 1800 m, the highest elevation vineyards in the world that produce méthode traditionnelle.

Grape / Blend- Voskehat, Khatouni, Areni. Origin- Khachik, Vayots Dzor, Armenia.

Tasting Notes-Origins represents the perfect storm of limestone soil and volcanic rock growing idyllic crisp white grapes, ripened by sunlight from high elevation vineyards. A product born from a 6,000 – year- old viticulture history, Origins embodies the bold Armenian soul and its wine loving spirit. 12% ABV

L’Onesta Rosé Lambrusco -Sparkling dry wine, with a characteristic bouquet of violets. Ruby-red color with a dry but gentle finish, light and crisp. An excellent companion with many Italian dishes, especially those including parmesan, prosciutto, or balsamic vinegar. 11% ABV

William Chris 2018 Mourvèdre – William Chris Vineyards focuses on low intervention, 100% Texas-grown wine. Since 2008, winegrowers William “Bill” Blackmon and Chris Brundrett have expanded the estate vineyards and partnered with family-owned farms across the state to source only the highest-quality fruit.

Amazing — all Texas grapes and delicious. Not many red varietals in Texas that are so noteworthy. Deep purple hue. High alcohol. On the nose— forest floor, dark fruit, oak, vanilla, and white pepper. On the palate- black currant, tobacco, cigar box, and cassis. 14.5% ABV

Cantina Gaffino “Tubbo” Merlot 2019 -The Tubbo is a pleasant expression of another grape that is now typical of our area: Merlot. The name of this wine, Tubbo, was inspired by an old edict of Pope Sixtus V who figured out how to regulate the wine sells through new measuring units like the litre. it was called tubbo
The merlot is the most environmental vineyard, able to interpret the areas of origin as a few vineyards and generating so wines totally different for every terroir. 13.5% ABV
