mother's lil helperFriday Sept 8th
4 p.m. – 7 p.m.

Join us this Friday evening as we kick off the start of the NFL regular season with a sampling of adult beverages for your tailgating enjoyment. We’ll start the tastings with beers from Missouri’s own MOTHER’S BREWING CO. who are bringing these selections for you to try:

OKTOBERFEST – a traditional old-school amber lager brewed to celebrate the fall harvest. Extended aging creates a medium bodied beer with a smooth malty flavor and just the faintest touch of hops.

LIL’ HELPER IPA – aggressively hopped in both the wort kettle and aging vessel for a sharp, clean bitterness and fragrant citrus hop flavors.

bombora-and-cooranbongTHREE BLIND MICE – this beautiful brown beer is medium-bodied with caramel, toffee, and subtle chocolate malt flavors—all balanced by moderate hop notes and a clean, dry finish.

For the vodkas, we’re bringing back —

COORANBONG and BOMBORA VODKAS – Cooranbong is a vodka made out of grapes from the Barossa Valley in Australia, distilled 10 times to make it a  “smooth,” bite-free vodkas with  an almost spring water-like finish in the mouth. Bombora is distilled 7 times from premium Australian grapes, and utilizes Australian water to create one of the smoothest, cleanest and freshest  gluten-free vodkas in its price-point on the market today.

And for the wines, our fantastic rep from Major Brands will be bringing these to tempt your tastebuds:

JUSTIN CABERNET –  Dry, moderate plus bodied, with ripe red and black cherry, and blackcurrant fruit joined by vanilla and cinnamon spice notes on the entry. The mid-palate is fresh with sustained ripe fruit, toasty oak notes and softly textured tannins. The finish is moderately long with notes of cherry candy and blackcurrant fruit matched with subtle classic Cabernet savory elements.

mer soleil silverCONUNDRUM ROSE – made from Valdigue grapes, which grows only in small quantities in California, it’s bright and fresh, fruity but not at all sweet, with flavors of strawberries and ripe peaches.

MER SOLEIL SILVER CHARDONNAY – this delicious un-oaked wine offers fresh fruity flavors of ripe peach, nectarine and citrus, complemented by a crisp acidity, with a perky and mineral-driven finish.

D’ARENBERG STUMP JUMP – earning a score 0f 89 points from both Wine Spectator and Wine Enthusiast, this Grenache-Syrah-Mouvedre red blend is a plump yet firm wine that combines black cherry fruit, juicy plum and spice flavors  with savory notes of chocolate along with a refined and velvety finish.

EMMOLO SAUVIGNON BLANC – subtle and balanced, with minerality and bright natural acidity, it offers a crisp lightness of citrus with underlying notes of fleshy grapefruit and lime zest along with a wet stone mineral flavor on the finish.
