Starr Hill Brewery: Tasting on Friday, June 7

by Esquire Liquors on 06/06/12

When: Friday, June 7, 5:00PM - 8:00PM

Where: Esquire Liquors, 6108 Oxon Hill Road, Oxon Hill, MD 20745

Founded in the 90's in Charlottesville, VA, Starr Hill is the largest and most award-winning brewery in Virginia and considered one of the best craft breweries in the country by many. Dedicated to giving people "the gift of great beer," Starr Hill offers over 15 year-round, seasonal, and specialty brews. On Friday, we'll have three available to try: Northern Lights (IPA), Dark Starr Stout, and Festie (Amber Lager).

Northern Lights
Northern Lights is a classic American-style India Pale Ale. Hops from the Pacific Northwest create a flavorful bitterness and poignant citrus aroma. For the craftbrew connoisseur, Northern Lights is a deliciously crafted piece of the heavens.

Dark Starr Stout
Dark Starr is an award-wining Dry Irish Stout. Brewed with roasted barley, and with hints of coffee and dark chocolate, it packs a robust taste into a surprisingly light and velvety body.

Festie is a malt-forward Amber Lager. Its clean malt flavor and low bitterness is our tribute to the great German lager. Its name pays homage to the summer music festival season (now available all year).

Wine Wednesday: Ecco Domani Moscato

by Esquire Liquors on 05/30/12

Made from Moscato grapes grown in Italy's Tre Venezie region, Ecco Domani's Moscato is a refreshing, crisp wine that showcases the variety in a great way. Peach, apricot, and orange aromas come together to form a classic Moscato with the perfect balance of acidity and sweetness.

Try it with pasta or roasted chicken, in a cocktail with New Amsterdam Vodka ("Ecco"nomics), with dessert, or on its own! Its a perfect wine for warm summer evenings on the porch or with friends.

Stop by on Friday, June 1 from 6 PM to 8 PM for a free tasting!
