Favourite grape or wine region?

So hard to pick just one! But if I had to, my favourite varietal would be Chardonnay and my favourite wine area would be Northern Italy (for white wines).

What’s one thing that people would be shocked to know about you?

That I was a vegetarian for over 8 years! Shocking.

What song would you pick for karaoke?

The only answer for both karaoke and staff party dances: Livin’ On A Prayer by Mr. Jon Bon Jovi.

Lucas Mader's Picks

Patio Picks

Cellar Slammer is probably the best beer ever made in the world. It’s our annual collaboration with Tatamagouche Brewing, and for our 20th anniversary (the beer’s 7th, if you can believe it) we wanted to give it a new proper label design – a fresh look for a fresh beer.

Slammer is a 4.4% abv session IPA, it’s dry-hopped with Mosaic and Hallertau Blanc to give you vibrant and summer-y aromas of white grapes, peaches, mandarin zest, alpine herbs, and five-alive. The palate is ultra light, thirst quenching, and just bitter enough to make you say    “oh, dang!”. This is the platonic ideal of what a Summer-beer should be. Practically designed by NASA engineers as the perfect patio beer.
