Its that time of year again! One of the most fun annual events at Benz is the Whiskey tasting the night before Thanksgiving. Whiskey is a large category of spirits that ranges in varieties including bourbon, scotch, rye, Canadian and Irish. This is a wonderful opportunity to meet with friends, grow your palate, and find some wonderful bottles for yourself or for gifting this holiday season! As always, the tastings are complimentary and open house style.
We're taking it back old school for this one! Merchant du Vin imports excellent beers in the classic styles from the brewing nations of Scotland, England, Germany and Belgium. Casual tasting featuring beer from breweries like Ayinger, Samuel Smith, Westmalle and more!
Here's another new one to Benz. A cider tasting! There is much to be learned in a field that can vary widely in taste. We will have several brands and varieties featured including locally owned Wilson's Orchard.
It was the drink of pilgrims. Cider was, in fact, the most popular drink in North America and England from the early settlers’ times, and with good reason— water was potentially lethal. According to Hall, “wine is wisdom, beer is strength, and water is bacteria.” This cider was probably a diluted cider called Ciderkin in the U.K., made by steeping pomace (the remains of pressed apples) in water.
Who loves beer?? We do! Join us for the 13th Annual Benz Beerfest on Saturday, May 13th at Benz Beverage Depot. VIP tickets come with a special Benz Beerfest tasting glass and it allows you to come in to sample the breweries an hour before it is open to the public.

If someone told you that all they want for holidays is a case of Bourbon County Stout (BCBS) then we probably cant help you. However, if you want to come and try some harder to come by beers and possibly buy a bottle or two of BCBS then come join us for our annual release party. No cost to attend we will release allocation information once we actually have the product.
Join us on Thursday January 14th for a free tasting featuring the Boulder Beer Company. In 1979 two professors at the University of Colorado received the 43rd brewing license issued in the United States, creating Boulder Beer Company, Colorado’s First Craft Brewery. The original site of the brewery was a small farm northeast of Boulder, the brew house sharing space in a shed originally housing a few goats! The Brewery has come a long way. Come hear the rest of the story and enjoy complimentary samples at Benz Beverage Depot.
The holidays are right around the corner and nothing accompanies the cold festive nights like hardy red wines and sparkling wine. Join us to try an assortment of our favorite big bold reds and with the new year just around the corner get an insight into perfect toastable bubblies.
Come join us and taste the exceptional wines from Oveja Negra.
Translated literally as "Black Sheep," Oveja Negra wines intend to stand out from the flock. Made from the winery's estate vineyards in Chile's Maule Valley, these wines sing strident of their roots yet embrace unconventional winemaking.
With a vast assortment of wine and beer available for distribution, Dimitri and his staff are known for their vast knowledge of wine, those who make it and those who drink it. Come join us and enjoy a sampling of their award winning portfolio. This tasting is free of charge.
