Products_SlumbrewHappySolBottleVerrill_13989489051. Our First Brew is… Slumbrew Happy Sol Blood Orange Hefeweizen

“This is a new product to Martin Wine Cellar. I recently had the pleasure of tasting this refreshingly tart and crisp hefeweizen. It is brewed with wildflower honey, orange peel, coriander and fermented with the juice from over 1,000 blood oranges. It is a cloudy yet effervescent beer, with lingering banana and citrus notes balanced against a healthy wheat backbone. It has a pleasantly bitter finish brought on by its Crystal hops. With this flavor profile, you should try it with your next spicy Louisiana crawfish boil.”
-Chris in Metairie $2.49


2. The next perfect crawfish pairing goes out to… Parish Brewing Canebrake Louisiana Wheat Ale

“Canebrake is personally my go to beer for crawfish boils. It is crisp and smooth with a beautiful golden honey color. This refreshing American wheat style brew highlights sweet accents of sugarcane with notes of honey, spice, and citrus on the finish. This product was the first commercial beer in the world brewed with locally made Steen’s sugarcane syrup. This flavor profile is a great pairing with a spicy crawfish boil. Canebrake is the new Louisiana crawfish boil tradition.” -Chris in Metairie $1.60


3. Next on our list for your spicy mudbug boil is the Great Raft Southern Drawl

“A hop forward lager with complex, citrusy aromas derived from German hops and wheat phenols. Great Raft used their German lager strain to provide a fresh backdrop for this perfect session lager. Mildly traditional…Wildly drinkable.” -Alex in Mandeville $1.59



4. The best for LAST: This Ale is brewed with Mediterranean Sea Water and is the Perfect Pair for spicy crawfish and the summer heat. Er Boqueron Ale

“This craft beer from Spain is made from 5 simple ingredients; water, malts, hops, yeast, and sea water making it a truly unique brew. This beer is perfectly crisp and palate cleansing, offering some reprieve from a spicy crawfish boil. Enjoy this beer on warm days and with good friends.” -Alex in Mandeville
