Beer Specials 5/19-23/15

OUR LOCAL REP from Washington Wholesalers spoke about JACOB'S CREEK and a
wine collaboration with another winery and whether he could come and taste
me on it this next Tuesday? I said : " Yes, between 3-4PM." AS he was
packing his bag he asked me if I wanted to try some MARTEL " Cordon Bleu? "
I said : " Sure. " It took me a moment to catch my senses and to put it all
together. Looking at the bottle brought it all rushing back to me and I
smiled inwardly, the smile, like the " Codon Bleu " slowly working it's way
outward as I realize and as the silkiness of this amber works it's magic
AND WHAT MAGIC it is, I love the caramel overtones, warm and comforting and
lilting and rich and bright and , si, oui, just right, juste ce qu'il faut
maintenant! Lovely, a real-vrai treat for me to nurse my agitated throat
that has valiantly fought against the recent pollen everywhere!
AND YOU CAN HAVE all this for a measly $155.99, the taste will replace your
immediate reaction of " ouch! " , with a broad smile and a big " wow!"

SPEAKING OF SANTOS now, here are some beer selections from him :
1) " Belgique DU NOIRE " 2014 bottle-conditioned ale from OVERSHORES
