Giant Beer Shipment

Spring is a time for the new. We are certainly living that here at the Bodega. There are so many new brews gracing our shelves, we hardly know where to begin. 

 

From the Mikkeller Yeast series 2.0  to the Mikkeller Single Hop series, including Mikkeller 19, an IPA with 19 hop varietals! We also have new Haand Bryggeriet beers, TO OL Mine is Bigger than Yours and Sans Frontiere, Freigest Unfiltered Kolsch and Smoked Berliner Weisse . . . Whew! And don't forget our shiny new plethora of British and UK Territories beer, and offerings from the honorable isle of Japan! 

 

The bottom line is, you need to see this selection. Old favorites and new favorites a like you will find something to peek your palate and expand your beer drinking experience.

One terrific night of sake!

Wednesday's Beer of the Day!

Picobrouwerij Alvinne is a tiny Belgian craft brewery whose name is derived from a female spirit present in local folklore.

Melchoir is a Belgian Strong Ale brewed with mustard seeds, intriguing isn't it?  Orange-glory body with lots of yeast and sediment and an off-white head.  Notes of honey mustard, malt, light citrus zest.  A delicious, complex, bread sweetness leading the way to light hops with a bitter finish.

$6.95 ea. for .330L of this delicious belgian ale.  Limited supply!

TUESDAY'S BEER OF THE DAY!

GRUT BIER! A historic beer recipe brewed by Dr. Fritz Briem.

Before the German Purity Law of 1516 it was common practice in Germany, as well as many other countries, for spices to be used adding flavor and balance to beer. This interpretation of a Grut by Prof. Briem uses Bay Leaves, Rosemary, Ginger, Anise, and Caraway.

Again, Quantities are Limited   $7.95 for .500L

Monday's Beer of the Day!

Schiehallion is from Harviestoun Brewery, the makers of Bitter and Twisted and Old Engine Oil.

A refreshingly crisp dry lager Schiehallion is inspired by the Schiehallion mountain in Scotland which is often surrounded by swirling clouds, this lager is meant to remind you of the fresh, dewy mountain air. 

Limited Quantity!  $8.95 for .500L.

Come by and see all the new products and take home beer #1 to start your AK Beer Week off right.

Snowball Saison

The most interesting of all beers in the Xmas selection thus far!

The website gives away nothing, and the black and white label is GREAT.  Got our staff member, Larry, conjuring up visions of hosting a "white party", where guests wear white suits and dresses...

Can't wait to try this beer!

Holiday Beers Arrive Monday!

YAY!

We love Xmas Beers.  Because they come from everywhere all at once!  It's like the whole beer world has come out to party.

Lots of new goods this year - stop in early for best selection!

Wine Shelves RE-Done!

Organized by country and domestically by state.  It's a beautiful looking shelf, if we do say so ourselves...

We've stretched out the selection so much that we elbowed out the ports - and have to get a new shelf just to display the "after dinner" selection!

Drink Wine for Cambodian Children

Great Australian producer Mollydooker's Sip it Forward - the proceeds benefit Cambodian children in need.

Read more on the wine here.

Thanks for Mead-ing with us!

What a great time was had a Celestial Meadery for the Mid-Week Mead Tour & Tasting!

We will certainly have to do it again! 

Sobon Wine Dinner

Kinley's & La Bodega are proud to host this 5 course, 6 wine dinner on June 22!  Click here for details.

Alternative Packaging

The sunshine is out and Bodega has everything you need for your imbibing this season.

Pack it in, pack it out is made so much easier with products in alternative packaging, and these days we certainly don't have to sacrifice quality for convenience.

We're recommending the Kenai Scottish Ale in cans, it's fantastic and bonus - local!

On the wine side, the Black Box Malbec is a terrific, med-bodied red.

Gluten-free?  Try a Strongbow Cider in a can.  Nothing's more refreshing when you're at the top of the mountain (disclaimer - safety first!).

Midnight Sun should have cans for us mid-summer, so look out for those!

April Beer & Wine Clubs are in!

This month's WINES here!

BEERS here!

Have a beautiful weekend...
