Winter Cab Fest 2019
Holy cow - it’s already been a year since we did our Winter Cab Fest back in January of 2018. It was a heck of a fun day for tasting and buying cabs!
Time flies as they say.
So here we are and like last January, we are tasting six domestic Cabernet Sauvignons that retail for under $25 a bottle. We’ll include the top seller from last year’s tasting along with new selections that will make it onto our shelves. We’ll see which comes out on top this year!
And since this is a Cab-Fest right after the holidays, we’ve got great discounts for any Cabernet Sauvignons for the entire day:
10% off any single bottle of Cab
15% off 6 or more bottles of Cab
20% off 12 or more bottles of Cab
Join us from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m. for this free tasting!

Ponysaurus Brewing Co. is a forward-thinking, backward-tasting brewery, creating beers that are meant to be savored, appreciated, contemplated, philosophized, studied, nuzzled, and mindfully guzzled.

Disaster strikes and the beer community responds. Please click here and take a moment to read how and why this special beer came to existence. Sometimes, this is how things get done. Then, while there, take an extra minute to review the North Carolina breweries that signed on to participate in this endeavor (thank you!). Cheers friends - come have a pint!
By the way, the Resilience Butte County Proud we have was brewed and packaged in Mills River, NC.
Have a holly jolly Christmas…Eve!
We’re open 10 am until 3 pm and guess what? We’ll have Highland’s Cold Mountain on tap when the doors open!
We hope you have a little time to stop in, say hey, and let us wish you a Merry Christmas!
P.S. - Growler fills of Cold Mountain are okay!
The real Christmas morning is just two days away but as far as great beer is concerned, we’re making it happen this day!
Join us as we tap two of the season’s finest releases from Hardywood Park Craft Brewery -
CHRISTMAS MORNING - IMPERIAL MILK STOUT WITH COFFEE & SPICES
”Hardywood Christmas Morning lends a cheerfully heightened decadence to our Gingerbread Stout through deep conditioning on locally roasted Mexican Chiapas coffee beans from Black Hand Coffee Co. Hints of sweet honey and oven baked gingerbread greet the comforting nuances of freshly brewed morning coffee in this imperial milk stout. Skip the leftover cookies and milk and awaken your senses with this delightful holiday tradition.”
KENTUCKY CHRISTMAS MORNING - BARREL AGED MILK STOUT
”Hardywood Kentucky Christmas Morning is liquid proof that good things come to those who wait. Our original Gingerbread Stout takes an initial transformation through months of aging in Kentucky bourbon barrels, reaching new levels of maturity with layers of vanilla, coconut, and toasted oak. Before bottling, the barrel aged stout is cold filtered through heaps of freshly cracked locally roasted coffee beans, showcasing the nostalgic joys of Christmas Morning. Treat yourself, it’s been a long year”
‘Tis the Thursday before Christmas, and all through the store, we’re as anxious as ever, to tap this beer once more…
And so we shall. We are tapping the 2018 release of Silent Night, an Imperial Stout aged in oak barrels. A favorite of ours from Mother Earth Brewing Co. (Kinston, NC). “Silent Night offers a coffee aroma and the taste of an exceptionally rich malty flavor. Robust yet smooth and black as coal, each sip is a delightful gift.” Proudly brewed using counter culture coffee.
Join us for a little holiday socializing!
Kickoff your Holiday week by joining us at the Mixx for a special wine tasting. Whitney from Epiphany will be here pouring:
2013 Iron Horse Vineyards, Classic Vintage Brut Estate Bottled Valley of Russian River
2016 Senses Wines, Pinot Noir-Russian River Valley
2015 Y3 Taureau Red Blend - Jax Vineyards, Napa, CA
2015 Vine Hill Ranch, Oakville Napa Cabernet Sauvignon
Each of these wines is of the highest quality. You won’t want to miss any of these special treats, but we’re only pouring one bottle of the Vine Hill Ranch, so don’t be late!
Do you like Haze? Do you like Juicy? Do you like Fresh? How about all the above? We will have 6 NE Style IPAs on tap featuring 3 from NC and 3 from the rest of the U.S.A. You decide how NC stacks up against the competition!
Try a half pint flight of 3 or enjoy a full pour!
Stop in and meet Glenn from Tryon Distributing as he’s bringing out the “big bottles” for some holiday time beer sampling. While these aren’t necessarily holiday beers, these larger format bottles make excellent gifts for your beer friends and family, parties, bottle shares and more! Yes, you can be the one that everyone remembers for that big bottle of beer! So join us for a little sampling and socializing!
Some beers we have available now and some we can place orders for arrival before Christmas!
Be sure to stop by and enjoy a tulip pour of Westbrook Brewing Co.’s 8th Anniversary release!
As Westbrook Brewing Co. posted on their Instagram account, “…Our favorite release of the year!…we created a chocolatey pecan cookie in beer form. Roasted pecans, winter spices, and vanilla blend with the dark malts and candi syrup for a decadent dessert delight…”
This beer taps at 2:30!
Sorry, but no growler fills of this beer until Sunday (if there’s any left - and that kind of depends on the weather!)
King In The North - the latest and final beer release from Brewery Ommegang’s Royal Reserve Series will be on tap for your enjoyment. “A beer for Jon Snow” this beer is brewed to sustain a leader through a long, dark night, King in the North is a barrel-aged imperial stout.
While King In The North will be on tap and available as a full tulip pour, we are pleased to offer a flight of 3 half pint pours of Queen Of The Seven Kingdoms (A sour blonde ale blend), Mother Of Dragons (A smoked porter & kriek ale blend) along side of King In The North. 750 ml Bottles of All three are available while supplies last.
Additionally, we will have the latest Game of Thrones Gift Pack available for sale which features a 12 ounce bottle of Hand Of The Queen, Queen Of The Seven Kingdoms, Mother Of Dragons, and King In The North along with Game Of Thrones beer glassware. An excellent addition to your collection for the perfect gift for the GOT fanatic in your life.
Join us as we welcome Scott Apicella from Hardywood Park Craft Brewery (Richmond, VA) to BottleMixx as we tap some of their exceptional beers. Leading the lineup will be this year’s release of Gingerbread Stout - on draft for the first time here At The Mixx. Look for Hardywood’s Pilsner, The Great Return West Coast IPA and Rum Barrel Aged Farmhouse Pumpkin to be on tap for your enjoyment.
Scott will be chatting all things Hardywood, and he just might have some brewery swag to give away.
See you here!
We’re nearly to mid-November. Cool nights. Crisp Saturdays. Thoughts of what’s to come. Thanksgiving. Family. Christmas parties, gifts, more family, celebrating. Maybe an evening of solitude in front of the fire.
Red wine. Particularly, Cabernet Sauvignon.
We’ll be tasting six Cabernets. Some will be BIG. Some will be BOLD. Some will be LUSCIOUS. All will be DELICIOUS (and some will be limited quantities).
There is a $5 tasting fee for this event.
And when you are here, you can place your pre-order for the 2014 Higher Education Reserve Cab Series which features one bottle each of these Napa Howell Mountain Cabernets:
Quantities are limited. Price: $499.99
About The Reserve Series
With each exceptional vintage we explore a specific sub-appellation in the Napa Valley and showcase its uniqueness, finesse, and power. For the 2014 vintage we focused on Howell Mountain, specifically a vineyard located at one of its highest elevations. These wines champion the balanced expression of Howell Mountain, where smooth structured tannins, excellent natural acidity, and layered complexity add sophistication to the intensity of the mountain fruit. Each was aged in French Oak Barrels for two years and then spent one year in the bottle before release. Future vintages will explore the great regions of Oakville and Rutherford. This wine is sold in a gorgeous wood box that contains one of each of the unique blends and allows the customer to enjoy something incredibly delicious, amazingly unique, and extremely rare. An excellent gift for recent grads, educators, wine aficionados who love to learn about different wines and micro sites.
Join us for a Funky Buddha Taproom Experience here At The Mixx featuring a very special tapping of
BARREL-AGED LAST BUFFALO IN THE PARK IMPERIAL PORTER
With top notch ratings on Beer Advocate (4.55 – World Class), Untappd (4.5) and Rate Beer (100 points), this is a beer not to be missed.
We will be tapping this at 5:30 p.m. (Sorry, no growler fills on this during the event)
LAST BUFFALO IN THE PARK
Bourbon Barrel-Aged, Imperial Last Snow
“This Imperial version of our Last Snow porter is a rich, thick, decadent treat. Pitch black and viscous, it's made with coconut and fresh roasted coffee. We then age it in Bourbon barrels for months to accentuate the vanilla and coconut notes.”
And enjoy these other fine Funky Buddha beers ON TAP:
FRENCH TOAST DOUBLE BROWN ALE
Look out lumberjacks, it’s time for the most important meal of the day! Our French Toast double brown ale is loaded with flavors of custardy bread, cinnamon, and maple, like the namesake treat. So grab your freshest flannel and enjoy this artisan ale before it’s gone.
KEY LIME PIE TART ALE
Key Lime Pie Tart: a lightly soured ale brewed with real key lime juice, sticky vanilla, cinnamon, and bready wheat malt. It's a refreshing treat as memorable as an evening in Key West. Whipped cream included.
Best consumed with tasty tunes, Vibin’ is a groovable lager that's smooth as a righteous riff. Its golden-pale body and delicate, noble hop harmony makes for a balanced experience that leaves you ready to feel the vibrations!
The flagship IPA drinks like an ode to hoppy goodness. Galena, Cascade, and Nelson Sauvin hops burst forth with intense flavors of melon, grapefruit, and pineapple, while the body balances malt character with a pronounced dry finish.
Our favorite day of the year is coming up soon - The BottleMixx Anniversary Celebration!
