I love when you can get a big, full bodied stout under 8%—that way you can enjoy a few with reduced guilt. Sand Creek from Black River Falls, WI, has a 4.5% chocolate oatmeal stout that is deep black with a luxurious tan head. Roasted malt, cocoa nibs, and coffee beans flood your nose when you inhale. Much like a babushka doll, wave after wave of rich, dark chocolate, robust bitter coffee, and velvety smooth malt sweetness are uncovered in every sip. Try serving with desserts like cookies and bars or with char grilled burgers or ribs.
Bacchus Wine & Spirits. The one, the only. Providing you with a carefully curated selection of exceptional beer, wines and spirits. And though Bacchus was the Roman god of wine, we’re pretty sure he enjoyed a great beer now and then, and this store is packed with them including those hard-to-get new releases that will impress your friends. But if he fancied a cocktail, he would love the wide variety of spirits packing the shelves. And he would applaud the outstanding collection of wines in every price range, most hand picked by a certified sommelier (that’s almost as high as a god), who is a Sherlock Holmes of finding hidden gems that other stores are content to ignore in favor of mass produced alcoholic grape juice… (oops, did we really say that?) Bacchus Wine & Spirits—not a superstore, but a superior store. 651-494-3930
