DeWayne joined our team in March this year, and can help you find a great wine that overdelivers for the price. He's a WSET Level 3 graduate, and in addition to wines, has a keen interest in craft beer.

Aligra has never been know as a big beer store. Our fridge capacity is limited, and the focus as always been more on wines and spirits. But, when you have someone on staff like DeWayne, it's encouraging to take a look at those fridges with a fresh set of eyes.

So, in the next while, we will be clearing out some beers at great prices (and they're good beers!) to make room for some local crafty newcomers.   We are also planning on some Craft Beer tastings at the store, and "pop up" tastings on weekends this fall.

If you want to come by and talk to DeWayne you will find him working at Aligra most Saurdays and Sundays.  Pick his brain, try something new and enjoy the conversation!

In the meantime, here's three new beers we're showcasing this month:
