Cleveland Park WineCleveland Park Beer, Liquor & Wine
Featuring a wide, international selection of fine wines, micro-brews and spirits

IT'S OUR TIME TO SHINE NO MATTER WHAT! we need to work this through together. we can, we must, we certainly will!


BIG pland ahead with so many new spirits like the spanking brand ' new ' DR.STONER'S Flavored spirits that I just sampled with David Baxter and Billy Reilly : i tried three, two are available now, the third is still in the lab being perfected.


just tried a delightly modern-style valpolicella with Braydon campbell our new rep from lanterna, a 2015, $19.99 that is a bit more muscular and firm, less acidic or earthy and weedy, a cleaner taste that will hold up to many foods and please many a modern palate. thanks braydon for the taste. go to our facebook page to see the pictures i just took.

SO : let's see what lays ahead for us all now. My new approach is to stay active, focused, helpful , concerned, listening and acting when appropriate. I like that, it suits me, it means I do not fall apart, get too angry, mean or ugly. I have stopped looking much at my Facebook page and that has been helpful. I have also started to use Instagram more as there is so much visually stimulating there to look at to from foods, wines, places, cities, countries, the arts, fashion , theater, music, you name it : so inspiring to me and that feeds my soul, mind, guts, heart in ways that uplift me and make me feel more positive energy.
WE WANT TO SPREAD here as much positive energy as we can, and that is our gola, spread the wealth, share what we have, make it give us on every level more ' bang for the buck! '
SO : Let's get started, ..
in BEER and CIDER from Santos Rivera we have :

2) ' Denali ' Imperial IPA , from the Single Hop series, from FLYING DOG ( Ranjot tells me that Denali means gun ) , On Special for $11.99 a 6-pack of 12-ounce bottles, with 8% alcohol by volume, serious business, tasty, what else?!? Cheers, come try some.
3) ' Mirror Pond ' Pale Ale from DESCHUTES Brewery, On Special for $11.99 for a six-pack of 12-ounce bottles, from Bend, Oregon, family and employee-owned since 1988 : " Floral, citrus, and caramel notes, ... balanced with the beautiful simplicity of the Cascade hop. "

1) Southern Cream ' Salted Caramel ' liqueur, made with Tennessee whiskey, from JACKSON MORGAN, we have On Special at $22.99 a bottle this tasty, flavorful, balanced and good crea, that has a bit of rumble and tumble, some real attitude, an aptitude, too to please many a palate!

2) ROSE with 16% alcohol by volume, $28.99, same story as the white, a really deep rose that is like a light red vermouth in color. Try some when you need a red vermouth. Both are quite captivating!
THREE MORE : a Whiskey, Rye and Irish Whiskey :

Whiskey from ONE EIGHT , their Rock Creek Rye, $49.99 a bottle, has been quite successful in the past , now more than a year in business and we are proud to have been one of the first to sell and recommend this fine whiskey, now the Rye : a gorgeous color, a depth and purity, a clarity, an intensity that delivers character and poise, too, makes your tongue pause, yes it does! Gladly!!

2) Whiskey distilled from a Rye Mash, American oak aged, from WIDOW JANE, $52.99 a bottle, bottled by Cacao Prieto distillery, Brooklyn New York, a bit cloudy, less filtered, with 45.5% alcohol by volume, love the deep golden-ness color " I imagine so much extra just looking at it!
" It is non-chill filtered for the finest flavor.New, progressive aging techniques may cause some cloudiness of the whiskey's esters, improving the flavor, mouthfeel, and aromatics. " We agree. Cheers, come try some. Been popular with a number of our customers already.
3) Limited Release Irish whiskey from WEST CORK Distillers, hand-crafted in Ireland, ' Barrel Proof ' , made with the finest HAND SELECTED INGREDIENTS matured in Bourbon casks. $57.99 a bottle, With 62% alcohol by volume, this is for those accustomed to these stronger tastes that have more impact, pack more of a punch, that are best enjoyed once someone builds up to them, learning how the flavors and the proof can pack a definite punch that may take some easing-into, go slow, sip small sips and let the flavors linger and saturate : no need to rush anything, enjoy this special ride.
