Jeff, on his website, says it best:

“Glou-Glou (pronounced glue-glue) is a french term which implies that a wine could be chugged. It does not promote excess drinking, rather it tends to happen naturally based on a certain taste profile. We already know of this concept with our favorite beers that we throw back, but wines can and do fit the same level of hyper drinkability.  Glou-Glou is used exclusively in the natural wine world and focuses on freshness, purity and liveliness. This does not mean that wines have to be light bodied. I drink plenty of natural wines with body and weight; however, the common denominator is freshness. The contrary to fresh is heavy and wines of this character are flabby, thick, oaky, super concentrated and hard to drink. We assume that most wines are pure grape juice and healthy, but this is a fallacy that needs to be exposed.

 So many wines are made from unhealthy grapes and are manipulated in the winery. The freshness in glou-glou type wines cannot be obtained with bad grapes and unnecessary intervention. Only healthy grapes with no make-up can produce pure grape juice, which we refer to as glou-glou. “

 

 

Beer Tastings...

Our Beer Tastings & other good stuff:

Tap Socials: Usually on Thursday and Friday, 4-6pm (sometimes 7pm) but check schedule to confirm as times may change. For $5, unlimited sampling of a featured brewery.

You get a brewery glass, unlimited sampling, sometimes there’s brewery swag & discussion w/ the rep, brewer.

Beer Samplings: These tastings are sometimes on Fridays and always on Saturdays, usually all day and may be draft and/ or bottles.

We charge 1 penny (because we aren’t allowed to give away alcoholic beverages) and the samples are limited to a decent tasting.

Sometimes there’s a rep & sometimes they bring free swag.

Tap Takeovers: Usually take place on Thursday and/or Saturday nights, 7-9pm or so. We’ll tap anywhere from 15 to 35 + beers!

The draft selection may be all one brewery, several from a region or we may do a themed selection (like Christmas Beers).

Sometimes there’s food (pizza, brats, etc), snacks (pretzels, chips, cheese, etc), brewery swag, brewers, reps, drawings, silent auction tables………

We charge a little bit more these tastings, maybe $10 to $20 but it’s a great deal and lots of fun!
