Cheers! This Friday features our famous "Hoppy New Beer" event. There's a chill in the air which entices us to try some darker, full-bodied brews. We will be rolling out Stouts, Porters, bold Belgian beers, and the ever popular hoppy IPAs and APAs, to toast in the new year. In addition to pouring 12 beers, we will also be offering chips, nuts, pub cheeses, pretzels & mustard to complete the event. If you must have some wine we can take care of your needs as well.

The end of December is a fun time to be a wine buyer. Wholesalers present some great deals on many tasty wines to meet their year-end sales goals. That's why this January's wine tasting is also a fun time for our wine enthusiasts to be sampling these berried bargains at great prices. We'll pour three new whites, and seven special reds that promise to please our attendees. Reservations for this premier event are appreciated and can be made by calling or clicking 813-879-2931.

The movie "Sideways" came out in 2004 and had a profound effect on the direction of wine drinking in mainstream America. It introduced many of us to Pinot Noir and to seek out new types of grapes. It also made fun of the over-commercialized, over-produced and now much-maligned Merlot grape. But 12 years have passed since then, and just like a Super Hero in an epic Sci-Fi thriller, the mighty Merlot grape is making a magnificent comeback onto wine lists, into various red wine blends, and back into prominence in our wine glasses. So tonight we are hosting a powerful purple "Welcome Back" party for Merlot and all the wonderful flavors it brings to our enjoyment of wine. Come revel in the ceremonial return of one of wine's underappreciated workhorses - Merlot. Reservations are appreciated to join this welcome back sampling and can be made by calling or clicking 813-879-2931.
