Green Gables is delighted to announce that, amidst the changes afoot at the PLCB, it has obtained a Wine Expanded Permit which will allow it to sell wines to go. That augments our long-standing ability to sell craft beer to go. Now virtually every wine on the Wine Spectator award-winning list* and more will sell to go. We have devised savings that will provide you great value in your wine and beer purchases. During most of Green Gables’ dinner hours (Thursday-Saturday 5-9 pm; Sunday 5-8 pm**), you will enjoy 30% savings off the wine and beer lists at Green Gables. Purchase a case (12 bottles) or more of wine and you will save 40%. Purchase two six packs (12 bottles) of beer and save 40% off the menu price. With all these savings, you have the ability to mix all cases and six-packs. See the current wine list and beer list. It is time to go shopping now!

Join us this first Friday of April for a Wine Tasting at Green Gables, a tasting that will feature wines which pair with mint and anise flavored food. The tasting is a continuation of the broader theme, The Art and Science of Pairing which began last month and was inspired by Francois Chartier’s book Taste Buds and Molecules: The Art and Science of Food, Wine and Flavor. In the book, Chartier credits the immense affinity Sauvignon Blanc and mint have for one another as the launch point for his interest in knowing the science behind the pairing. Finding the same aroma characteristics in mint and Sauvignon Blanc lead Chartier to look beyond and find other foods and wines that shared the same molecular components. And, the science of wine and food pairing was born.
At the tasting on Friday, we will pour six wines that pair with mint and anise flavored food.

If you enjoy craft beer, join us at Green Gables tomorrow evening for a tasting of beers from around the world that feature hops. Tomorrow’s Second Friday Beer Tasting celebrates the annual theme It’s March for the Love of Hop! This year, our tasting will focus less on palate-wrecking hoppy beers and instead on the interesting uses of hop varieties in differing craft beer styles. Hops are the female flower of the hop plant, Humulus lupulus, which exhibits a profusion of aromas and tastes in beer depending on the specific hop variety (of the dozens that exist) employed and the stage in brewing process when they are introduced. The lager and ales we shall pour tomorrow are:
Otter Creek Citra Mantra (American Pale Lager)
Brooklyn Sorachi Ace (Saison)
Left Hand Brewing Sawtooth Ale (Extra Special Bitter)
Lavery Allta Madra (American IPA)
21st Amendment Brew Free or Die (American IPA)
Scheldebrouwerij Hop Ruiter (Belgian Strong Pale Ale)
Founders Black Rye (Rye Ale)
The Hop Concept – Dank & Sticky (Imperial IPA)
The tasting occurs tomorrow, Friday, March 13 from 6 to 9 pm. $25 per person includes tastes of the eight beers and a selection of light hors d’oeuvres. Reserve your tastes now at 814 629 9201, option 1!
