November Staff Picks
*All prices include taxes and deposit
West End Staff Pick
Riverlore Sauvignon Blanc 750ml $19.95
With aromas of ripe pear, gooseberry and fresh cut grass, this wine pours out a pale yellow green colour. Medium bodied with a balanced fresh acidity. Notes of asparagus and passion fruit.
Burrard Staff Pick
Salt Spring Wild Semi-dry Cider 750mL $17.50
There was recently a tasting done at the Burrard liquor store and as the first time having this cider it was instantly a favourite. They have found the perfect balance of earthy and citrus flavours with just enough sweetness. This cider was crafted in BC using locally grown and handpicked apples. Although the Semi-dry was my favorite, that won’t stop me from recommending their other ciders. For example, their Dry Cider would be perfect for a sparkling wine lover. Everything I tried from Salt Spring was brilliantly crafted and an amazing choice for cider lovers, or those looking to try something new.
Crosstown Staff Pick
Strathcona Brewing Vienna Lager 4-pack tall cans $16.30
This is an easy drinking version of a style traditionally only brewed in Vienna. A crisp lager with a bit of malt sweetness, it is balanced by a light hop presence. Makes it easy to drink a few!
