Spill It – February 2011

From the $14 pitcher to the $6 beer sampler for those who like to dabble, great brew awaits you. Belgian White, Amperage Amber, Hefeweizen, Powerhouse Pale Ale, Scottish Ale, India Pale Ale, Four and Alarm Stout (and heck yes, Powerhouse also has its very own root beer for the alcohol-free set!).

Woodinville Whiskey Co.

Raise your glasses to crossing state lines! Woodinville Whiskey just signed distribution and brokerage with Southern Wine & Spirits which means  availability of its products soon throughout Washington State, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Utah, and Wyoming.


May we recommend a Sazerac to toast? Woodinville Whiskey’s Dave Pickerell knows a thing or two about bourbon, and he also makes a heck of a cocktail. Here's his favorite Headlong White Dog Whiskey cocktail that he developed along with good friend and mixologist John Ueding. It's a new take on the classic Sazerac:

  • 2 oz Headlong White Dog Whiskey
  • 1/4 oz Simple Syrup
  • 2 …dashes Pecheyaud's bitters
  • 1 dash Regan's orange bitters (optional)

Stir with ice and strain into a cocktail glass that's been rinsed with Yellow Chartreuse or Absinthe. Garnish with a wide twist of lemon.

16110 Woodinville Redmond Rd. NE, Suite 3, Woodinville, Wash.
Tasting Room Hours: Wednesday – Sunday, noon to 5 p.m.; 425-486-1199;

Time to tap the Silvertap! Wines on tap are all the rage, and the first Silvertap system from San Francisco-based Free Flow Wines is found at the just-opened Munchbar in Bellevue Square.

The system reduces the amount of bottles and corks that are thrown out and means less weight to ship, eliminates packaging used for shipping and allows the reuse of kegs, and eliminates bottle variation to guarantee your glass will never be spoiled.


Thy one of these wines on tap for $6.50 glass/$25 bottle:
2009 Chardonnay, Munch House Blend, Piccola Cellars, Columbia Valley; 2009 Sauvignon Blanc, Silvertap Wines, Dry Creek Valley (Calif.); 2010 Pinot Grigio, Lake Chelan Winery, Chelan; 2008 Merlot, Silvertap Wines, Sonoma County; 2008 Meritage, Edmonds Winery, Columbia Valley; and Syrah (MV), Munch House Blend, Piccola Cellars, Columbia Valley.

Located at 505 Bellevue Square, adjacent to the sky bridge at Lincoln Square, Bellevue. 888-68MUNCH. www.munchgroup.com/bellevue.

Metropolitan Market

It’s the month of amour, so why not pop open a bottle of bubbly and give it a special, fruit-kissed twist? Just an ounce of Stirrings Bellini Mix mixed gently in a glass of Prosecco gives those tiny bubbles that “oh la la!  factor that makes all the difference. Made from triple-filtered water and orchard fruit puree direct from Italy, you’ll be tickled pink you made the extra effort. Price is $7.99 for a 25.4-ounce bottle. Cheers.
