Up Next... Broadhead's Dark Horse Stout

Broadhead's Dark Horse Stout is a fullbodied, rich and creamy oatmeal stout that bristles with bold, unbridled taste. Blending roasted malt and oatmeal for a solid footing, this smooth, dark beer has shades of bitterness that gives Dark Horse the perfect edge.


| Wine of the Month

Gerard Bertrand 2013 Languedoc is a well balanced, dry, bright red wine produced from two fantastic grape varietals – Syrah and Grenache. These grapes alone commonly make for delicious wines because of the terroirs they thrive in. The Languedoc province throughout the South of France is one of the largest wine growing regions in the world. Soil in the region contains abundant limestone and gravel, along with an array of shrubbery that over many thousands of years has enriched the soil with fragrance. Because it’s so large, Languedoc provides a variety of terroirs that allow for unending combinations and concentrations of different varietals.
