Monthly Features

Canned Wine It’s a Thing! – Great wine does not exist in bottle alone, as more winemakers embrace the virtues of alternative packaging like cans, kegs, and bag-in-boxes. While some associate canned wine with cheap, tasteless juice – the Bud Light of wine, if you will – that stereotype just isn’t accurate. Some of the best wines can be found in cans, and the amount of quality canned wine only increases from vintage to vintage.

At the Café we pour some of the top ranked canned wines in the country. Try one you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

Cycle’s Gladiator Pinot Noir – The Cycles Gladiator Pinot Noir tastes like high-quality wine served in a can, as opposed to high-quality “canned wine.” It’s a glowing example of California Pinot, with ripe cherry and plum notes and a brambly finish. There’s some oak influence, too, which seasons the wine in a skillful manner that adds character without dominating. “This wine makes me happy,” one taster noted with a smile on their face. It looks cool, too, in a renaissance painting, rather than craft beer.

The Original House Wine, Rose – While some canned wines improve after decanting, this wine begs to be sipped straight from the can. Fruit-forward with honeysuckle notes, its off-dry sweetness is balanced by a pleasant acidity. Additionally, the Original House Wine rosé’s limited-edition rainbow design highlights an important cause.

Dark Horse Pinot Grigio – A bold wine with a big personality, offering notes of apple and hints of lemon, complemented by a subtle minerality and an elegant finish.

 


 

B3 Cafe Orlando Beer TastingBeers: Terrapin Beer Compnay!

Terrapin Beer Co. began as a daydream between founders John Cochran and Spike Buckowski, who met while working for a microbrewery in Atlanta.

The two recognized that they had something to contribute to the brewing industry in the southeast, and began crafting recipes. In April of 2002, Rye Pale Ale made its first appearance in Athens, GA. Only a short six months later, Rye made it to Denver for GABF, where John and Spike took home a Gold Medal for the beer in the American Pale Ale Category.

In 2007, Terrapin Beer Co. moved into its current location on Newton Bridge Road in Athens, and set out to share its unique beers with its hometown and the rest of the Southeast. Inspired by the creative culture of Athens, Terrapin began to add to its beer line up, with unique beers like W-n-B, Hopsecutioner, and so many others. Today, Rye Pale Ale is accompanied by six other year-round beers, four seasonal sessions, and at least a dozen special projects, side projects, and collaborations.

Watermelon Gose – Terrapin’s first Gose, this beer is kettle soured with Lactobacillus for a tart, but refreshing beer. Watermelon aroma and flavor is complemented with a distinct lactic tartness and saltiness that is true to style. Perfect for a hot summer day, this beer will blow any picnic out of the water…. melon!

Recreation Ale (Session IPA) – This hopped up session ale is light bodied with a present hop bitterness and a crisp finish. Dry hopped with Galaxy hops, this beer presents a subtle peach and passionfruit aroma.
Moo-Hoo Chocolate Milk Stout – Dark brown to black in color. Aromas of dark chocolate. Dark roasted malt flavor with hints of caramel and chocolate, rounded out by a sweet, creamy finish.

Stop by the Café and try some of our constantly rotating bottles, cans and drafts of beers from Florida, the US and all over the world.
