You’ve always been a serial monogamist – with drinks made from grapes. Yet suddenly you’ve developed a wandering eye (the warmer weather may have something to do with it) – and you’re now lusting after cold, frothy brews.
Raise a glass to The Wine Stop, which despite its name is a beverage boutique known for a rotating selection of world beers. Join their specialty Beer Club and for just 15 greenbacks a month you’ll receive a sampling of six 12-ounce beers – plus a five percent discount off two or more subsequent six packs.
Owner and sommelier Kim Karalovich devises a different theme each month (April was Belgian and May is a surprise), introducing small breweries and hard-to-find labels like Three Philosophers and Duvell. The accompanying newsletter explains choices, how each beer is made, and suggests food pairings, so you learn the inside scoop on the world’s oldest alcoholic drink.
There’s no long term commitment – just pay up by the 25th (that’s this Friday) and pick up your booty the first week of every month. If that happens to be Saturday, you might slip in to their complimentary wine tasting, and slyly ask about wine clubs.
Because this is one place where it’s okay to swing both ways.
