Ben’s Brew News
New Wines In-Store from Ann’s Travels
July- Avery $7.40 a 6-pack
In April and early May, I accompanied Tom Lane, one of my favorite
importers to France and Italy. Tom found it beneficial to have another
palate on the trip and I found some incredible wines to come to
Pettyjohns directly.
Through France we traveled from Champagne, to Burgundy, Beaujolais,
North and Southern Rhone, the Languedoc, and Provence. My rosés and
Burgundies have already arrived, some have already sold out. Don’t miss
the Saint Siffrein Chateauneuf du Pape, a steal for $38.99, and look for a
GORGEOUS old vine Chateauneuf du Pape that will be arriving in time
for Christmas.
One evening Claude and Francis
from Domaine Romarins served a
lovely Viognier on their porch, I just
couldn’t help myself, I ordered 10 cases
to come here this month. Take
advantage of my travels, these wines are
not to be missed.
In Italy we went from Puglia (the
heel of the boot) to the Marche,
Tuscany, Friuli, Veneto and Piedmont. I
bought my favorites from every region I
visited. The Piedmont selection in the
store has grown
significantly, check
out the delicious
Barberas and mindblowing Barolos. I’ve
tried to make these
wines easy to spot,
they usually have one
of my travel pictures
on the shelf. Of
course, you can just
ask me, I’ll try not to
talk your ear off.
The sun is out and it is HOT! Its rays and
the days activities have physically drained
you. The fan is on but, it is only blowing
around warm air. The only waves
you see are heat waves. Your dog
has only gotten up for water and
to move to a colder location on
the linoleum floor twice in the last
week. The Weather person says
“Tomorrow will be even hotter
with no relief in sight!” Well, the
weather man is wrong because
Pettyjohn’s has all the relief that
you need. Beat the heat with some
cold beer at cool prices. Avery is on
deal for the whole month of July at
$7.40 a six pack in bottles and cans. With
Avery IPA in tow you will be everybody’s
friend at the next party. Take six cans of Joe’s
Pilsner to the creek and sip the day away in
the shade. Camping? What better to take with
you than man’s best friend Ellie’s Brown in a
can? White Rascal is sure to quench your
thirst after a ride or climb at your favorite
spot. The Karma is always good especially
when you can drink it. And when you’ve had
enough of summer try the Out Of Bounds
Stout which reminds you the powder turns
are right around the corner. All month at
Pettyjohn’s drink and save with Boulder’s own
Avery Brewing Company.
August- Full Sail 6-packs $6.00

in Hood River, Oregon resides the Full Sail
Brewery, Tasting Room & Pub. Full Sail has
operated from this beautiful location since
1987, and has since become one of the largest
craft breweries in the United States;

Sail has held onto their humble
roots by becoming an employeeowned business of 47 employees.

the buck breweries around. This
August at Pettyjohn’s, Full Sail is
our Spotlight Brewery of the
month, which means all their six
packs (IPA, Pale Ale, Amber &
Ltd.) are on sale and will fly off
the shelf at the agreeable price of
$6! And check out the 12 packs of Full Sail
Session at $10.16, check the caps to see if you

yourself) while the deal is hot!

To get them go to
Warm Weather Sippers
August Winery Focus Bogle
Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc- $8.99
Cabernet, Merlot, OV Zinfandel, and Petite Sirah- $9.99
I asked for my distributor to come up with this
quantity deal for two reasons. First, this is another true
quality line from a family that has been making wine
in California since 1968; second, Bogle’s annual release
of their Phantom should coincide with this promotion.
To be honest, I don’t think I have to discuss each
wine that will be on sale because they all fly out of the
store at regular pricing. All fruit from the Clarksburg
region just outside of Sacramento, each wine has
vibrant fruit and is beautifully made. The award list
is pages long each year.
I discovered the Phantom while out of state two
years ago. It is not only delicious, but an intriguing
blend of Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, and a little
Mouvedre. A very limited amount is made, it’s released
once a year, and now I’m on it. I pre-order this now,
and it should arrive in August. A big, black, ugly thing, I can’t
get enough. This is usually around $16.00 per bottle and
worth every dime.
For the next two months, come in and enjoy all that Bogle
has to offer, at unbelievable pricing. I hope to celebrate the
end of summer this way every year.
Featured Recipe
Peach Shortcake
Colorado peaches are the best, a great way to enjoy them.
2 sticks unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly,
plus more for buttering the d ish
6 room temperature eggs
2tbsp. room temperature milk
1 /3 cups plus /4 cup sugar 2 cups flour
1/4 tsp. salt
2tsp. baking powder
1/2 cup peach schnapps
8 peaches peeled, wedged
In a large bowl, using an electric mixer,
beat the eggs with the milk until frothy.
Add the 1 9 1/3 cups of sugar and beat at
high speed until the mixture is pal and
thick (7 minutes). In a medium bowl
sift the flour with baking powder and
salt. Fold the dry ingredients into the egg mixture, then fold in
the melted butter. Spread the batter into a generously buttered
9X13 inch glass baking dish. Bake in the center of a 375 degree
oven for 30 minutes. When the cake is golden, transfer to a
rack and cool. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, mix the
remaining sugar with the peach schnapps. Stir in the peaches
and let stand at room temperature for at least 15 minutes,
stirring occasionally. Cut the shortcake in squares and serve
with peaches. Serves 8.
Patron Mojito
A simply perfect summer cocktail
1 1/2 oz. Patron Silver
1 oz. simple syrup
fresh mint leaves
lime wedge for garnish
sliced lime
club soda
In a mixing glass, muddle mint leaves, lime
and simple syrup. Add ice and Patron Silver.
Top with club soda. Shake gently and serve in
a sugar-rimmed glass.
Cranberry-Clementine Sangria
A fun, refreshing porch-pounder and budget friendly!
2 cups cranberry juice
1 cup fresh squeezed clementine juice
2/3 cup sugar
2- 750ml. dry red wine
Orange slices, cranberries, fresh raspberries,
halved strawberries, and other cut up fruit
In a 3 quart pitcher stir together cranberry and
clementine juices. Add wine and sugar, stirring
until sugar dissolves. Cover and chill for at
least 3 hours. Stir in fruit before serving. Serve
over ice. Makes 12 (6-ounce) servings.
Featured Chardonnay
Simply Pure Chardonnay $9.99
The name Paul Dolan has been iconic in California
when it comes to organic wine production. He was Barney
Fetzer’s partner with the Bonterra line, and has his own
label in our organic wine section.
In the 1980’s Paul and friend Phil Hurst joined a group
of viticulturalists and wine makers in Mendocino County
committed to organic and biodynamic farming.
Today, Mendocino is considered the center for organic
farming, and this is where Simply Pure was founded.
With the help of Paul’s son Heath, and winemaker
Virginia Lambrix, Simply Pure is made entirely of organic
or biodynamic Mendocino fruit. It is crushed and vinted
in an organically certified winery, and packaged using only
recycled and sustainable materials.
I tasted this wine a few months ago and felt it would be
the ideal hot weather Chardonnay feature. This is the
epitome of clean, crisp, fresh and refreshing Chardonnay.
Even though Virginia has fermented 1/2 of the fruit in
French oak and the rest in stainless, and with 1/3 going
through malolactic fermentation the vibrant fruit flavors
take the forefront.
I had to order this weeks ago as Colorado didn’t have
enough on hand, but it’s finally here. It’s not often you
find this quality for under $10, enjoy this beauty of deal,
and I’ll make sure we have the quantity.
