We listen to Our Customers….

Our craft beer selection is bar none the best around in the Western Suburbs. Thanks for your comments on our ‘Yelp’ page…we appreciate your feedback and welcome your requests!

“This store has a great selection of beers.  The liquor and wine selection is great too.  You can pretty much find whatever your looking for and maybe something new if your feeling adventurous.”                  – Patrick from Chicago

“This place has everything I like, suitable for many price ranges! They get in beers that are hard to find. I was really impressed when I wanted PumKing beer, and they offered to call me when it actually came in, and reserve me some bottles until I was able to stop by— and they actually followed through on that!”                                    – Susanne from LaGrange

Chilé & Argentina Wines

South American wine countries of Chile and Argentina. Both have winemaking heritage reaching back centuries and are well known for making good wines of good value for export, often with influences of Spanish and French approaches. But now these countries are turning attention to creating wines of tremendous character, at premium prices of course—wines that display a more intimate and authentic expression of grape, terroir and winemaking philosophy. The majority of Argentinian wines come from Mendoza, in the central part of the country. Check all the examples from both countries at this tasting.

Nancy's Wine Picks

Rosé Season has Started!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The 2018 Rosés are showing up on the shelves in many stores, which means the season has begun. Pink is not sweet; don’t let the color fool you! Rosé wines are surpassing all other wines this summer and rightfully so. Whether you’re trying to find a great deal or looking for the very best, these are wines with real character. Rosé wine flavors range from scrumptious strawberry and raspberry to juicy cherry and citrus flavors, and the colors range from ballet slipper pink to cranberry sorbet. The 2018 vintage also seems to have even more fruit than usual in these crisp, dry rosés.

Rosé has unlimited food-pairing potential! While rosé is typically thought of for warm weather occasions and get togethers, more and more people are finding opportunities to drink rosé all year. The well-seasoned, spicy dishes you prepare on the grill are perfectly complimented with rosé. Rosé wines go well with year-round celebrations regardless the season. At all price points, these are wines that have real personality, with fruit and acidity happily in balance.

Rosés have many health benefits: it raises good cholesterol and lowers bad, it reduces the risk of heart disease,heart attack and stroke, it also contains potassium that lowers blood pressure. Rosé wines protects against inflammation, is relatively low in calories and it contains the antioxidant reservatrol that protects against cancer. All these benefits in an ice-cold glass of rosé. Seek these out as the weather begins to get warmer!

Cheers to Rosé, your new favorite anytime–wine!

When wine is involved, nothing is difficult. Cheers! Nancy
