WINE

Red, white and sparkling wines are great for any occasion. Not sure which your guests prefer? An even mix of reds and whites will assure you won't run dry.- Need a food pairing recommendation? Bring in your menu and we will help you find the perfect wine for what you're serving.- Refrigerate white wine at least two hours before serving. Keep red wine cool at 60F/15C. Chill champagne and sparkling wines in an ice bucket.

SPIRITS

Create a full bar by stocking the spirits that bartenders serve most: Vodka, Tequila, Rum , Gin and Whiskey. Popular brands are available in 1.75L bottles for a better value.- Don't forget the extras! We have all the bar accessories, mixers, glassware and touches to build a full bar and keep it pouring smoothly.- Consider serving a signature cocktail such as a Martini, Margarita, Cosmopolitan or Caesar. To help you plan, pick up a copy of the Bartender's Black Book, filled with recipe hints and tips.

BEER

Stocking a variety of styles from light to dark will guarantee happy hop-heads. Consider adding fun seasonal brews into the mix.- Beer loves food! Try a crisp lager with sushi or fish, pair a robust ale with burgers or pizza.- Having lots of friends over for the big game? A keg is the way to go for large gatherings, check out our amazing selection and don't forget the tap, tup, cups and ice!
