Big Bottles of Fresh Brews!

We've had a few new beers make their debut at The Goat recently, and these newcomers are definitely worth a try! JOLLY PUMPKIN ARTISAN ALES "Calabaza Blanca" White Ale $14 Origin: Dexter, Michigan, USA This is for those of us who want something more substantial than the beer flavored water that's typically peddled with the warmer weather. The barrel aging really shows in this, but you also get the leaner citrus rind and pithy notes on the nose. And, it’s not too bitter.  A... Full Post >

A Fresh Look, While you Look!

If you've been in The Goat recently to gander at the beautiful new pastries and gelato, you may have seen the changes that have also been going on with the beer and wine here in The Goat.  The old kraft paper shelf-talkers have been tucked away, and replaced with the snazzy new "chalkboard" style format that is easier to navigate...and read!  In addition to the tasting notes, there are also pairing options for each wine to make it easier to decide if the Viognier that you're considering will...

A Little Wine & Wisdom for Valentine’s Day

Nothing says "I love you" like...saying..."I love you," but we all know that your special someone would prefer you speak in gifts instead of English. This is not unfortunate, as wine is a perfect gift that is as rewarding to give as it is for the both of you to enjoy! They say there is a Champagne for every occasion, and for Valentine's it's DUVAL-LEROY Brut Non-Vintage.  Sharing the bounty of chocolate treats that you ordered from The Goat is going to be all the better with a...

Wine for New Years

New Year's Eve means bubbles, conversation, and committing to resolutions that probably won't last more than a week. While I can't help you with your yearly goals, or give you any hot topics for conversation, I can help you pick out a nice bottle of sparkling wine that might make the aforementioned tasks a little easier to bear. Everything in life goes better with Champagne, and at the Goat we've made sure that there's plenty of Duval-Leroy Brut Champagne to be had.  If your tastes are... Full Post >

Wine for “Santa”

Santa's been working hard all year, makings his lists, checking them twice, and getting patent rights issues ironed out so his elves can make the new MacBook Air in time for Christmas. All jokes aside, Santa's pretty bored with the same old milk to go with his cookies. Why not spice it up and give Santa something he'll really enjoy, wine! Vin Santo and biscotti is a pretty neat Italian combination, or ginger cookies and a late harvest Alsatian Gewurztraminer for another original flavor... Full Post >
