Are you ready for Thanksgiving....?

Just a reminder that no liquor stores are open on Thanksgiving Day - so be sure to stock up tomorrow on all your last minute holiday drinking & dining needs! Both locations are open early, and will be closing later than usual posted hours.

In addition to wine & beer - Melrose has plenty of fresh cheese, appetizers, ready containers of pepperoni, peppers, kalamata & gorgonzola olives, cookies, candies, pates, and so much more!

From all of us at the Beacon Hill Wine & Spirits - and Beacon Hill Wine & Gourmet family -
we wish you and your family a happy, healthy and safe holiday.

As always - please drink responsibly.

Space Limited Sake Class!

Email or call to sign up for our first seminar - a Sake sampler class.
Learn from certified Sake Professional Richard Auffrey and expose your palate to a whole new world.

From sparkling to sweet, unfiltered to dry - Sake is more than what our experiences have probably shown us at local restaurants. Not only is it a fantastic accompaniment to a variety of foods...it's also a wonderful pairing for cheese, making it an interesting and unique way to enjoy a small gathering with friends, when wanting to depart from traditional choices.

Space is limited...and there are only 7 seats left -- so call or email to sign up.

$20.00/pp for a 2 hour class, where you will not only sample - but truly learn an education from someone who is exceptionally passionate (no pun intended!) about this exciting wine - and you can enjoy a variety of cheeses and foods that will pair wonderfully as well.
