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!)”

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!!)…”

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!”

Whacky Willett Whiskey Wednesday (Purple Top!!) Plus OGD 114!!

How’s this for unexpected, surprising, and flipping AWESOME on Whiskey Wednesday. Talk about an embarasment of riches! Check this out! The last (well, the only, really) time we received the Willett Purple Top Wheat we only got a couple of bottles and they sold immediately. Here we actually got a few bottles and, as such,Continue reading “Whacky Willett Whiskey Wednesday (Purple Top!!) Plus OGD 114!!”

Super-Rare 1983 Vintage Port (We Have One Bottle!)

Ok, so teeeeechnically, we have two bottles. Technically. But 1983 is my birthyear, and I adore Graham’s Port, and our distributor had a miniscule 2 bottles of this vintage in stock so…I had to, right? That’s what I’m telling my wife anyway. So Imma take one of these. But for those of you who loveContinue reading “Super-Rare 1983 Vintage Port (We Have One Bottle!)”

(REALLY) Special, Rare Barrel-Proof Codigo Tequila!

From NOM 1616 (where Codigo is the only brand produced!), this is a fantastic, rarely-seen (we had to special-order it from out of market) anejo tequila that’s bottled at cask strength. While more still-strength blanco tequilas are becoming available (one of my favorite trends in the new tequila boom!), higher-proof anejos are still quite rare.Continue reading “(REALLY) Special, Rare Barrel-Proof Codigo Tequila!”

Heaven’s Door Bootleg V. IV (One Bottle Available!)

There were only 12 bottles of this for the whole state, from what I was told, and we received one!! Not only that, we’ve got a fantastic price on it! Here’s what the producer has to say about it: “Introducing the 2022 release of The Bootleg Series by Heaven’s Door. Featuring rare and unreleased whiskeys,Continue reading “Heaven’s Door Bootleg V. IV (One Bottle Available!)”

Whiskey Wednesday is BACK, Baby!

And so are we! After a couple of weeks of near radio silence (we lost free access to Mail Chimp and my lovely, extremely patient wife and I had to enter in all 500+ email recipients’ information by hand into the new system), we’re BACK! We figured we’d kick things off by releasing some specialContinue reading “Whiskey Wednesday is BACK, Baby!”

SERIOUSLY Hard-to-Get, Top-Shelf, Additive-Free Tequila

Again, it really (really) pays to work with some of the smaller distributors and give them the time of day. That’s how we get stuff like this! They only had these tequilas in stock for a few days, but the KC and STL markets took everything they had except for a handful of bottles. AndContinue reading “SERIOUSLY Hard-to-Get, Top-Shelf, Additive-Free Tequila”
