B-A-N-A-N-A-S: Crafted Artisan Bananas Foster Forever
It is said that once, long before the Birds and the Bees, there was the
Banana and the Bee. The rowdy Banana came from the wrong side of the tracks, so it was instantly a scandalous relationship. Things were hot for a while, practically a flambé. Their love didn’t last long, though, as it was steeped in good times and a heavy dose of a certain Caribbean libation. After the flames settled settled they decided it would be best to stay BFF’s. A honey and banana wine with spices! 6% ABV




Boston Beer Bourbon: Berkshire Two Lanterns (distilled Sam Adams Boston Lager)
Berkshire Mountain Distillers crafted this one-of-a-kind premium whiskey by triple distilling Samuel Adams flagship Boston Lager at BMD’s distillery in Great Barrington, MA, followed by years of barrel aging in vintage bourbon barrels. While BMD is well known for aging spirits in used craft beer barrels, Two Lanterns is the first whiskey distilled with Samuel Adams’ Boston Lager. It took nearly 25,000 gallons of Boston Lager to produce the 1000 gallons of Two Lanterns available for purchase, so this whiskey is a truly unique and rare find!
