About Poças Júnior:  In 1918, a few months before the World War 1 Armistice, Manoel Domingues Poças Júnior, who had been born in the heart of the Port Wine hustle and bustle, decided to establish his own company. Manoel Poças was 30 years old and he had some experience in this business. He created a company to sell grape spirits to large Port Wine shippers. Soon afterwards he opened a head office in Vila Nova de Gaia, where they remain to this day. Today, with three Quintas in the best winemaking areas of the Douro Demarcated Region, Poças ensures its total control over the quality of its wines. We are pleased and proud to be able to offer this pre-sale on some of their most outstanding port wines!

Poças Colheita Port 1997 20 year
Douro Valley, Portugal
The enchanter… Medium tawny with some old cherry-fruited ghosts remaining.  Raisin marmalade, with scents of vanilla, walnut, wood and spice. Full bodied dried fruit, well-matched with the wood. Long, soaring and harmonious finish.
Aging: The Colheita it is a high quality Port issued from a single harvest, aged in oak casks for at least seven years. Grapes are harvested manually and transported in 30 Kg trays. Controlled fermentation with extended maceration, stopped by grape brandy addition. Evaporated and aged in oak casks for a period no less than 7 years. During maturation the wine mellows by oxidization similarly to Old Port Wines, and presents characteristics that are unique to the harvest year.

750ml $64.99

Poças 40 year Tawny Port

Full-bodied and involving, well structured, showing an extremely long and very persistent finish with celery seed, citrus peel, spice and almond husk.
Aging: Colheita Port is rare as it is always from a single, well regarded year and comes with many years aging. Unlike the British system of blending wines and years together, Colheitas show well and always retain that special character of the year they were harvested in which will not come again.

COLT'S GLASSWARE ADOPTION DAY (And his last day At The Mixx)

We're happy but sad to report that our friend and part-time beer slinger Colt will be leaving us to embark on the next phase of his life.  Colt and his fiance Sarah will be moving to Seattle, WA this week - wow!

Rather than pack it all up, Colt has opted to leave his beer drinking vessels behind and he is hoping to place his collection in the hands of our great customers.  Hence, "Colt's Glassware Adoption Day."  Perhaps he's willing to provide an autograph or two! This will also be his last day at BottleMixx, so even if you don't have space in your glassware cabinet, be sure to stop in and wish Colt well.

We'll miss you Colt!  Have a blast and make the most of the west coast - Cheers!

NC Brewery Spotlight: Ponysaurus

A lot of breweries get their start in a garage. But we’re pretty sure Ponysaurus is the only one that started in an attic. And besides that tiny space above the entrance to The Cookery in Durham, NC (and the scissor lift we used to access it), the only other thing we started with was gumption. To think that maybe we could make great beers for people who take beer seriously, and not much else. 

From that passionate little beginning, a forward-thinking brewery and taproom has hatched, brewing beers meant to be savored, appreciated, studied, nuzzled, and mindfully guzzled.

In just three short years, we’ve gone from bonking our heads on rafters to being named a “Next Level Brewery” by Food & Wine, and brewing what thrillist.com calls “the best pint in Durham, and one of the 50 most underrated breweries in America.” So while we’re not brewing out of an attic anymore—and are certainly making a heckton more beer—our passion and irreverence has stayed the same. 

We are Ponysaurus Brewing Co. The beer beer would drink if beer could drink beer.

On Draft:
Summer IPA
Tripel
Scottish Ale

Shacksbury Cider Tasting!

As the weather warms up and we get into summer, more and more we search for lighter options for drinking. Shacksbury Cider fits perfectly into that category. From a small city in Western Vermont, Shacksbury is making truly artisan cider. In the same way that wine shouldn't taste like grape juice, these ciders are made from traditional cider apples from Vermont and England. Fermented over 6 months, they finish extremely dry and crisp with just enough complexity to make it interesting. Beer and wine drinkers will find common ground with these fantastic ciders!

Join Tyler from Artisan Distributors from 5:30-7:30 for free samples of Shacksbury Dry, Semi-Dry, and Spritz ciders!

WINE TASTING - BONNY DOON VINEYARDS - FREE

WINE TASTING - BONNY DOON VINEYARDS - FREE

Bonny Doon Vineyard (Santa Cruz, CA) 

"On a spirited adventure to make naturally soulful, distinctive, and original wine." 

Join us as we bring a little of the "Dooniverse" to you to taste and enjoy!

"While Bonny Doon Vineyard began with the (in retrospect) foolish attempt to replicate Burgundy in California, Randall Grahm realized early on that he would have far more success creating more distinctive and original wines working with Rhône varieties in the Central Coast of California. The key learning here (achieved somewhat accidentally but fortuitously) was that in a warm, Mediterranean climate, it is usually blended wines that are most successful. In 1986 Bonny Doon Vineyard released the inaugural vintage (1984) of Le Cigare Volant, an homage to Châteauneuf-du-Pape, and this continues as the winery’s flagship/starship brand."

Deschutes in North Carolina!

As a family and employee-owned brewery, Deschutes believes every pint of beer worth brewing is worth sharing—with friends, family, and even the stranger you just met on the barstool next to you.

This is not us waxing poetic. This has been the blueprint of Deschutes’ DNA since our modest beginnings in 1988 as a small public house in downtown Bend, all the way through to the present.

Come and try some fantastic west coast beers in one of the first places it will be available!

Bombshell Beer Tasting

5:30pm 5:30pm

Bombshell Beer Tasting

History tells us that brewing beer was traditionally a woman's job. In fact, the creation of beer is credited to women! The goddess, Ninkasi is recognized for creating the oldest beer recipe in existence, dating back some 3900 years. Until Medieval times, it was the woman's job to brew beer for the household and laws of that time stated that the tools of brewing were solely the woman's property. The role of men in brewing began to grow with the rise of monasteries during the Middle Ages. Until the age of "Enlightenment" and "Industrialization," women represented seventy-eight percent of licensed brewers. 

Bombshell Beer Company in Holly Springs is continuing that tradition with their completely women-owned brewery. Join Jack for free beer samples along with great industry knowledge. We will also have their special release Grapefruit Azacca IPA on draft!

New Brews with IBU's

New Brews with IBU's

IBUs were invented because it was hard to measure how "bitter" a beer was, just like it's hard to measure how "comfortable" your favorite sweater is...it was all about the perception. Since the early 20th century, the IBU scale was introduced (and has evolved) as a way to put a number to, or quantify, this perception and assess just how bitter a beer turned out to be when it was ready to drink.

While sometimes misleading, the higher the IBU of a beer, the more bitter it will taste.

Join us for a day of showcasing hops. We will have 4 different beers for 4 different breweries that are truly doing unique things with hops. These aren't your regular IPA's, these beer stretch style boundaries and feature unique ingredients and flavors! Get a flight of all 4, or try a couple of your favorites!

Draft Lineup:

Burial/Zebulon - Fierce Invalids Hoppy Pilsner
Stone - Ghost Hammer IPA
