Details:

Clark's Market in Crested Butte is trying to circumvent a new law taking place in Colorado in January 2019 that will allow grocery stores to carry full strength beer EXCEPT those stores that are within 3,000 feet of an existing store.

However, BY APPLYING FOR A 3.2% OFF-PREMISES ALCOHOL LICENSE, next week in Crested Butte, they will automatically be allowed to transition to full strength beer in January 2019, breaking the 'spirit' of the new law designed to PROTECT Ma and Pop stores.

Keep your money local, support your favorite Crested Butte Liquor Stores!

Sobon Estate Wine Tasting Friday the 27th

Join us this Friday from 4:00 - 6:00 PM for a complimentary wine tasting with Sobon Wine Estates.

Shenandoah Vineyards in Plymouth, CA, was founded in 1977 by Shirley and Leon Sobon. They moved from Los Altos, California, where Leon was a Senior Scientist with the Lockheed Research Lab. Leon's gift for home winemaking led him to leave Lockheed and begin a new career as a Winemaker. 

The selection of a winery site in the Shenandoah Valley of Amador County was well researched. Leon and Shirley and their six children moved to the old Steiner Ranch, outside Plymouth, CA, planted a vineyard, and converted the old stone garage to the Shenandoah Vineyards winery.

Oskar Blues & Cigar City Brewing July 12th

July 12th 4-6PM with Oskar Blues and Cigar City Brewing come together for a complimentary tasting at Acme Liquor Store in Crested Butte. Join us! 

 

Oskar Blues THE ORIGINAL CRAFT BEER IN A CAN.

In 2002, our funky little Colorado grown brew-pub started stuffing our huge, voluminously hopped mutha of a pale ale in a can (Dale’s Pale Ale). That not only began the craft-beer-in-a-can craze, but has grown to add a brewery to the hills of Pisgah National Forest in Brevard, NC and another in the Live Music Capital of the World, Austin, TX, in 2016. Cans keep beer fresher, longer by eliminating the damaging effects of light and ingressed oxygen while being infinitely recyclable and portable…taking them where your next soul saving adventure takes you.

Cigar City Brewing out of Florida -

In a state known for theme parks, Cigar City Brewing has become a major attraction for those who appreciate and seek out excellent beer. It opened with a flourish and spread its reach quickly, appealing to both hardened beer geeks and brew novices with eyebrow-raising flavors and commitment to quality. Capitalizing on the Latin culture and tobacco-manufacturing history of Tampa Bay, Cigar City highlights those strengths on its labels and in its beer names and recipes. Many of the beers it produces – Jai Alai IPA, Improv Oatmeal Rye India-Style Brown Ale, Cubano-Style Espresso Brown Ale – reflect the sensibilities and ingredients of Florida. One of Cigar City Brewing’s most sought after beers is a special release called Hunahpu’s Imperial Stout. The 11 percent ale is aged on cacao nibs, Madagascar vanilla beans, ancho chiles, pasilla chiles, and cinnamon.”
