Redstone Meadery Tasting

Tonight from 5-7 we will be featuring six of the available varieties of mead from Redstone Meadery located in Boulder, CO.

"David Myers, known as 'Chairman of the Mead', founder of Redstone Meadery, is a romantic and wants to see mead once again enjoying the glory days of yesteryear. He started the Boulder, Colorado company with the 'natural philosophy' that he produce the highest quality honey wine on the market.

Because of this 'philosophy of mead', Redstone does not cork (to avoid oxidation) but instead uses swing top bottles. This ensures the mead will not breathe while cellaring plus offers a much longer shelf life once the bottle has been opened.

In keeping with the 'natural' approach, Redstone does not add any sulfites, a known allergen, as honey is it's own natural preservative. Redstone only pasteurizes the must (unfermented mead) and never boils. The company strives to feature the flavors of the fermentable as much as possible."

9/6 New Cellar Releases

While we were stuck inside this rainy holiday weekend a decision was made to dive into the cellar and see what there is to see. Unsurprisingly, a dozen treasures were unearthed!

Fantôme La Gourmande 2003 750ml (Belgium)

Rogue Old Crustacean Vertical 6 pack 1997-2002, mixed bottle sizes. (OR)

Due to the limited quantities of these beers we have to offer, bottle limits will be imposed and everything is first-come, first-served.
