25 April, 2013


T-minus 7 days and counting…

Yes, the patio is still on schedule to be open by Friday, May 3. (If you’re reading between the lines that does mean it could be open sooner…) Regardless of the weather- we will have tables, chairs, umbrellas and hopefully patrons outside soon! Along with the patio will come some new food and drink specials too. Stay tuned to next week’s newsletter for all the yummy details.

Feature Item This week’s feature item, although somewhat local, is new to us! Maumee Bay Brewing Company now graces our beer shelves. Currently, in stock we have Amarillo Brillo Double IPA, Total Eclipse Breakfast Stout and IPA. For those of you unfamiliar, Maumee Bay microbrewery was founded in 1995 and set up operation in the historical Oliver House in Toledo. To be classified as a microbrewery, they must produce less than 15,000 barrels of beer a year. Therefore, instead of focusing on mass production, Maumee Bay is committed to quality over quantity. We are excited to add another Ohio beer to our selection and hope you enjoy it!
Dan’s Pick Dan has set up his picks in price tiers this week. In the first tier is Cable Car Chardonnay from Lodi, California for $10.99. This is a bold yet creamy wine full of apple and pear flavors with a smooth finish.  The second tier is McNab Ridge Red Blend from Mendocino County, California. This wine is 59% Zinfandel, 39% Petite Sirah and 2% Pinotage. Only 65 cases of this wine were produced and bottles usually sell for $35.99 but have been marked down to $24.99! The third tier is Chateau Montelena, Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley, California for $49.99. This is the winemaker that beat the French in the famous Judgment of Paris blind tasting of 1976. No matter your price range- Dan has a great recommendation for you!
Final Thoughts Don’t forget if you are looking for a specific wine or beer, stop in or give us a call. If we don’t have it, we will certainly do our best to try and get it. We have lots of connections and our turnaround time is usually quite short. If you’re on a deadline- just let us know. We are happy to join your search for that special drink that elicits great memories.
Speaking of memories- does anyone remember what spring should look like?!  Hope to see it, the patio and all of you soon!
