ANDI’S BEER CORNER MAR 14

Another week, and more great Beers in Andi’s Corner! ANDI’S BEER CORNER The craft/micro -brew world is always changing.  Keep an eye on this section so see Andi’s most exciting and newest additions. Just a reminder… For the entire month of March we are taking an additional 20% off all bombers! Bombers are 22 oz. singles commonly used by a brewery to showcase a special or limited release beer. Rather than committing to a 6 pack, bombers are a great way to try something new. Larger than a single 12 oz. beer, they are easily shared. Yet smaller than a 40 oz. beer, they can be enjoyed alone. Most people associate this larger bottle with heavier styles of beer like porters and stouts or something that has been barrel aged. Nowadays breweries are using bombers as a format for all styles of beer! Now check out what in Andi’s Beer Corner this week: Oud Beersel Brewery, Beersel Belgium Oude Geuze Vieille Gueuze Ale ABV 6% Available in 375 mL corked and caged bottles, $8.99 A classic and traditional Belgian style of beer, gueuzes are a combination of different ages of lambic ales. Lambics are a wheat style specific to an area of Belgium near Brussels called the Pajottenland region. They contain malted barley and unmalted wheat, giving them more body than traditional American and German styles. They are also made with aged and dried hops which carry little traditional hop flavor but rather act as a preservative. In the brewing process, lambic beers are left in open wooden barrels to encourage airborne wild yeast and bacteria specific to the...
HUNKY DORY TASTING MAY 12

HUNKY DORY TASTING MAY 12

We are excited to have a Free Wine Tasting featuring Hunky Dory Wines on May 12th, 6:30pm – 8pm at Taylor’s Wine Shop! Here is a little bit about the folks over at Huia (Hunky Dory Wines): Claire and Mike Allan planted the first vines at Huia in 1994 and formally started Huia Vineyards in 1996. From then until now, the health of the earth and the happiness of the people at Huia have always been the most important factor. It takes great land and great people to make great wine. Claire and Mike arrived in Marlborough in 1990 and officially started Huia Vineyards in 1996. Those early years were spent gaining valuable experience in wineries in Marlborough. Mike at Cloudy Bay and Vavasour whilst Claire was at Corbans and Lawson’s Dry Hills. They also both worked and made wine in Champagne at Veuve Cliquot and Taittinger respectively. This diverse, hands-on experience gave them a great grounding in making bright New World wines, but also integrated an appreciation of the sense of land, heritage and tradition from the Old World. When they purchased the wonderful Home block in Rapaura, it took several years to get it cleared, build the house and get the first vines planted. At the same time two gorgeous daughters arrived – Tui and Sophie – and they have played a full part in the continuing journey of Huia...
