DEFALCO'S NEWS

THEY'RE BACK!!!  KARBACH BOMBERS!


We just received another pallet (100 cases) of gently used Karbach 22 oz. bomber bottles.  These are in their original boxes, rinsed, mostly de-labeled, ready to rock & roll!  At $7.99, they're going for half the price of new bottles.  If you're interested, it would be wise to buy sooner rather than later.  They've gone very quickly in the past!  Click here for details.

PINK MOSCATO HAS ARRIVED!


Our shipment of World Vineyard Pink Moscato has arrived!  Description: "Light and refreshing on the palate with flavors of fresh strawberry, raspberry and cherry."  This is available only for a short time and is limited to our stock on hand!  At $89.99, these will not be around long!  Click here for more details.

WINE SEASON IS UPON US!

Here on the Gulf Coast, wine season often begins in late March with the ripening of loquats (a.k.a. Japanese Plums), then strawberries, dewberries (wild blackberries), figs, and peaches.  This year's wine season, because of the cool winter and spring, has been running a bit behind, calendar-wise.  But, now, we're beginning to see the beginnings of wild mustang grapes coming ripe.  This traditionally marks the beginning of full-blown wine season.  In addition, this also means that we'll be seeing the first harvests of cultivated grapes, as well: Blancs des Bois & Black Spanish (makes great port!).  If you're interested in making wine from scratch, now is the time of the year to gear up.  Here are some recipes we hope you will find helpful:
Wild Grape Wine
Cultivated Wine Grapes
Peach Wine
If you just want to stick your toe in the water, you might try making a gallon at a time.  Here's the kit that you'll need for this: One Gallon Wine Kit.  If you would rather get 25 bottles of wine for your time & effort, then our Five Gallon Fresh Fruit Wine Kit is what you need!  Good Luck!

 

LEMONDROP HOPS - LIMITED SUPPLY!

We managed to get our hands on a limited supply of the highly sought-after Lemondrop hops!  Notes of Lemon, Orange, grapefruit, citrus, blackberry, super cascade, menthol, pine, licorice, & peppermint. While supplies last (which, barring a miracle, won't be long!).  Get'em!  Lemondrop hops

OTHER NEW HOP VARIETIES: AZACCA, MADARINA BAVARIA, & HUELL MELON

We just received some new varieties: Azacca, Mandarina Bavaria, & Melon Huell.  We've had a number of requests for these hops, so here you go!
Azzaca - Intense tropical fruit profile, with sustained impressions of apricot and very ripe mango and notes of pears, apples and pine throughout. Excellent aromatic qualities make Azacca™ a go-to hop for late and dry hop additions in a variety of styles, although its high myrcene fraction has already made it a favorite of IPA brewers." Click here for details!
Mandarina Bavaria - A daughter of Cascade, Mandarina Bavaria was released in 2012. A tangerine machine when used for late, whirlpool, and dry hop additions, Mandarina Bavaria is quickly finding support in the brewhouse for American IPA and variants, black ales, saisons, Brett fermentations, and other beers where a definite fruity and strongly hoppy character is beneficial. It's sweet and distinctive with intense tangerine and orange candy notes and a resinous, herbal followup.  Click here for more information.
Huell Melon - Also a daughter of Cascades, Huell Melon’s unique but mellow fruit character makes it a good choice for styles where overpowering hop flavor may not be warranted. It melds well with the yeast character of Hefeweizen and Belgian ales, but can also work as as standalone hop as a feature of a summer seasonal or Brett fermentation. It has a mild to moderate aroma with vivid impressions of summer melon (especially honeydew) and ripe strawberry bouquet.  Click here for more information.

We have purchased nearly a third of a million Ft. Bend Brewing Company bottle caps and are offering these at half the going price for our regular oxygen-scavenging caps: $2.99 per canful (180 - 200 caps)!  Because we have so many, we are offering them in bulk for even cheaper pricing: $19.99 for 10 canfuls (about 2,000 caps).  If the color of the bottle cap is no big deal to you, save 50% or more off your cap costs!

P.S. By the way, the sign on the photo has been "photoshop-ed".  Any signage must comply with local civic association deed restrictions, so we're flying under the radar now with an indoor banner by one of our windows and a re-purposed banner outside.  One more hurdle to clear!
