Loire Valley Wine Weekend

Do a Google search on the Loire Valley and, regardless of the main topic, you’re likely to find that the most common term used to describe the region is “diversity.” From the river’s source in the central mountainous Massif Centrale, to its mouth at the Bay of Biscay some 620 miles to the west, the region is rich in biological, environmental, architectural, agricultural and historical abundance, making the Loire Valley one of the most popular regional tourist destinations in France.

That being the case, it should come as no surprise that, of all of the country’s viticultural regions, the Loire produces the greatest diversity of white, red and pink sparkling and still wine styles. Interestingly, the region’s winemakers, who represent th

Stony Creek #1

Despite being relatively new to our shelves and to Massachusetts, Stony Creek is making an impact.  Their Cranky line up has everything you need.  Little Cranky is the session IPA, Cranky their IPA, and Big Cranky is their double IPA.  Besides these staples, they have beers for those looking for something other than hoppiness.  Recently their Dock Time won a gold medal for Amber beer and I think it is maybe the best amber we have on our shelves.  But I"ll let you all come to your own conclusions at our first Brewery of the Month tasting.  July 9th, 1-3pm.

LeJay Cassis

Lejay has a rich, velvety texture with full-bodied blackcurrants and hints of cherry balanced with the right amount of dryness.  The incredible texture and immense flavor comes from careful harvesting of wild French Blackcurrants that happens only once per year.  A century old traditional process macerates the blackcurrents by varietal and decants by gravity avoiding filtration and preserving the full flavor of the fruit.  You can taste the difference.

Brasserie Les 2 Frères

This brewery (or brasserie) from Quebec offers us some solid additions.  Quebec has a really wonderful beer culture and these guys are a fine example of that.  We"ll be tasting their two IPAs and an amber.  We had a very good response from everyone who came out to try the beers with Frank when he was in last.  So if you tried it, please swing by for a free taste again.  If not, I would recommend one of the best bang-for-buck secrets in the store.
