Woowww, y’all! Isn’t it just a delight to see our modern day rocket men work so hard to get their rockets up in space? Nothing to prove here. What wouldn’t one do with miles and miles of pennies… But back down here on earth, this weeks new beverages will be pushing to the outer limits of your taste buds!
The shelves have been blessed with a new round of brews from Põhjala, some of the finest Krieks in the world via Drie Fonteinen, Whistlepig Barrel Aged Shacksbury Cider, the introduction of Toppling Goliath to the ATX, and Blue Owl gave us the Mex Mart Seltzer we didn’t know we needed since our last Martini Monday at Trudy’s. PHEW!
And y’all, don’t sleep on those new wines! I’ve been working hard on mining some gems. We’ve got a super smooth red blend from Maris, Café de Paris make bubbles fit for the gods, and children…. the Elk Cove Pinot Gris and Pike Road Pinot Noir…. oy, vey… thoughtful, beautifully crafted, estate grown fruit that will make you never think of Chuck again. Go give ’em try, why don’t ya?
Circle was a huge hit for our June brewery of the month, so we’re keeping them for July! We’ve got Envy Amber, Blur Hefe, and Alibi Blond all for $7.99!
Time to blast off my fellow space kadets!

Drie Fonteinen Oude Kriek – 3 Fonteinen Oude Kriek is the result of macerating hand-picked whole sour cherries on young lambic for at least four months, in a proportion of one kilogram of fruit per litre of lambic. The kriek lambic is then blended again with more young lambic to obtain a minimum intensity of 35% fruit, and is bottled immediately afterwards. These bottles are then stored in our cellars for at least five months so that the kriek lambic can develop into a beautiful, traditional, and refined Oude Kriek. With a pleasant tartness and organic notes of almond and cinnamon as it warms in the glass, 3 Fonteinen Oude Kriek, will age perfectly but may lose some of the vibrant red colours and forest fruit aromas. This unfiltered and unpasteurised lambic is all-natural with no artificial juices, syrups, or sugars added. 6% ABV
Drie Fonteinen Intens Rood – 3 Fonteinen “Intens Rood” (Intense Red) is the result of macerating hand-picked whole sour cherries on lambic for at least six months, in a proportion of one kilogram of fruit per litre of lambic, and is then blended again with more lambic to obtain a minimum intensity of 450 grams of fruit per liter. The kriek lambic ferments in the bottle for at least another six months and develops into an intense wine-like fruit lambic. 6% ABV

The resulting Lo-Ball is easygoing at just 4.8% alc/vol. with fresh apple flavor complimented by the dry, spicy character you would expect from rye barrels (or from a Vermonter). If you were to compare it to something, it’s more of a light easy-to-drink highball cocktail than a heavy barrel-aged beer. 4.9% ABV
