Ceren Vodka...$25.99 / 750ml
CERÉN® Vodka captures Gold Medal at the The San Francsico World Spririts Competition
Charleville Tripel Wit...$4.19 / 22oz
The latest release from Missouri's own Charleville. 9%ABV
"A beer experience with a true distinction, our Triple wit is a unique bottle conditioned Belgian style ale. Made from two row barley, white wheat and rolled oats. To compliment the satiating taste only found by using a traditional top fermenting yeast, coriander and oranges are added. This addition during the brewing process lends to the delicate balance of flavors between the malt hops and yeast." -- Charleville
O'Fallon Whiskey Barrel Smoked Porter was named one of the top 25 beers in the world in 2008. It is great to see them get some recognition from a national magazine. It is amazing how many great beers there are in the world and O'Fallon made the top 25. Well done!! Unfortunately, the winning edition (Buffalo Trace) has been sold out for awhile. I have only 1 bottle left the the Weller Edition at Forsyth and maybe some at Provisions Gourmet Market. I also heard that there is some O'Fallon Cocoa Cream currently in barrel waiting for release."These are the beers that, in the last year, have made us stop, think and beg for more. Some are old, some are new, but every one is worth the hunt and deserves a place on a pedestal (or in your fridge). -- Draft Magazine
We stock all the beers in red, I have included some other famous "bitter" beers for reference that are not currently available in St. Louis.

Next week -- one of the most anticipated releases each year is
Leinenkugel's 1888 Bock...$6.89 / 6pk
"We've tapped our family's original bock recipe to create Leinenkugel's 1888 Bock, which features a robust head that seizes the rich aroma of toasted the caramel malts. The flavor of this full-bodied brew is heavily defined the Munich malts and teh 20 to 25 day cold lagering process which creates a smooth, toasted malt flavor. 1888 Bock also features caramel, pale and two-row chocolate malts while cluster hops add a touch of citrus character." -- brewery
Bitterness: 18 IBU
