New Beer Friday (Speakeasy Edition!)

We’ve been waiting a little while for these guys to drop through, but they finally made it today and it was definitely worth the wait, as we scored a couple of new Surly brews and a case each of two rarities from 903…check it out! Surly Hell-“Dorit Ansari is from Germany. Omar Ansari is herContinue reading “New Beer Friday (Speakeasy Edition!)”

New Beer Friday (Craft Republic Hazies and Sours Edition!)

Good morning, y’all! We’ve got some hot new allocations for you from the fine folks at Craft Republic, just in time for the weekend. While the hazy bois are likely to garner the most attention, we’ve got a couple of stunning, rare sours (including one more bottle of Cantillon!) that no one else got hereContinue reading “New Beer Friday (Craft Republic Hazies and Sours Edition!)”

Whiskey Wednesday: Buffalo Trace (and Friends) Edition

Good evening, y’all! It’s been a bit of a rough week here so far (I kinda feel like that’s the new normal in retail these days, amiright?) but I wanted to get something special out for y’all this week for Whiskey Wednesday tomorrow, what with the holiday weekend coming up and all. Please read thisContinue reading “Whiskey Wednesday: Buffalo Trace (and Friends) Edition”

Tequila Tuesday: Comin’ Atcha with Both Barrels!!

We’ve got a super-cool new tequila for you this morning that literally just dropped unannounced. Pretty cool for Tequila Tuesday, right? As far as ‘entry-level, bargain brands’ go, I’ve always been a fan of Lunazul. Their pricing has stayed pretty consistent over the years and, though they’re not certified through, they are in factContinue reading “Tequila Tuesday: Comin’ Atcha with Both Barrels!!”

The World’s Best Dessert Wine (Only at Rockbridge Hy-Vee!!)…

…and at an absolutely fantastic (though by no means negligible) price! I’ve been reading about Chateau d’Yquem for over a decade now and this is the first time I’ve actually had any in my possession. Not only is it crazy expensive, it’s also widely-recognized as la creme de la creme of high-end sweet Bordeaux and,Continue reading “The World’s Best Dessert Wine (Only at Rockbridge Hy-Vee!!)…”

Crown Royal 23-Year…Apple?!

Yup! Apparently, this is a thing. I honestly had no idea, but when a couple of my customers started asking for it and getting really excited, I had to look into it. You read it right: it’s a Crown Royal Apple (one of our most popular, best-selling flavored whiskies) but a special, highly-limited edition that’sContinue reading “Crown Royal 23-Year…Apple?!”

After Years of Waiting A Bourbon Industry Staple FINALLY Comes to Missouri!! (And it’s Priced Right, Too!)

Anyone that knows anything about bourbon knows Heaven Hill. They’re responsible for some of the most-recognized and most highly soft-after whiskies in America. I mean, who doesn’t know Evan Williams? It’s many people’s “bottom-shelf, on-a-budget go-to pour”. And why not? The quality is rock-solid, and it’s cheaper than dirt. When you have to ‘slum it’Continue reading “After Years of Waiting A Bourbon Industry Staple FINALLY Comes to Missouri!! (And it’s Priced Right, Too!)”

New from Second Shift: “Chocolate Chip Trip LSD”!

Is it just me, or does that cat kinda look like some of the artwork from Aerosmith’s late-Nineties “Nine Lives” album (maybe the last one they were relevant?). I kid, I kid…sorta. Anyway, oddly enough, that album came out right around about the time Steve Crider started homebrewing. The dude’s had a long time toContinue reading “New from Second Shift: “Chocolate Chip Trip LSD”!”

The Holy Grail of Lambic Producers Comes to Rockbridge Hy-Vee

It’s been a full eighteen years since I’ve actually seen this bottle “in the wild” as it were. That was way back in the day, when I was twenty-one or twenty-two, bumming around my local ‘big-box’ liquor store because I didn’t feel like going to my history lecture that day but had a couple ofContinue reading “The Holy Grail of Lambic Producers Comes to Rockbridge Hy-Vee”

Whiskey Wednesday: I Give You My OATH…and Other Stuff, Too!

Honestly, I’m really bummed to do it this way (we had fun stuff planned), but we had call-ins today, we have corporate visitors, and we were already running super behind, so we’re just going to have to do this on a first-come, first-served basis. The fine print: see below for the bottles we have (andContinue reading “Whiskey Wednesday: I Give You My OATH…and Other Stuff, Too!”
