The Wines of This Week's Tasting:

Cherry and Nektar, Wine and Cider
March 1, 2017


Meads and Cider Blends


Stupid Man Suit:  A dark and stoic reference to the cult classic Donnie Darko. This cider blends raspberries, cherries and black currants. $9.00

Zombie Killer:  Their flagship and easily the most popular in their lineup. This particular mead is actually a triple threat as a mead and cider with cherries added. The blend of cider and mead is referred to as a cyser.  A mead with fruit is also called a melomel.  So therefore, we have Cyser melomel. $9.00

Mutant Killer Zombie Manhattan Project Thingy: I could believe this name. It is by far the furthest name out there that I have ever seen. This takes zombie killer and blends it with the zombies take Manhattan rye barrel aged mead. This happy compromise adds a subtle layer of complexity to the traditional zombie killer. $12.00

Zombies Take Manhattan: A nod to Jim Henson’s Muppets take Manhattan, this particular iteration takes the zombie killer to another level.  The zombie killer ages in rye barrels. $20.00

Dwarf Invasion:  This brew is named in honor of a mischievous sprite from French and Detroit folklore.  Cherry and hops are added to the mead to balance sweetness and juice with bitterness on the finish. $9.00

Cherry Chipotle: A simple name for a complex honey wine. A unique and surprising interplay of flavors come though perfectly in this unorthodox combination.  $14.00
