On Saturday, February 16th, the Heirloom Market & Café announced through their Facebook page that they will now be able to serve glasses of wine and craft beers in their café and bottles of wine in their market. They are starting off with a small selection of six craft brews including a local favorite, the Bent River Brewery’s Uncommon Stout. The wine selection is all from a local vineyard in Bellevue, Iowa.
“The Psalmist wrote that, ‘God created wine to make glad the hearts of men.’ We agree and genuinely believe that a nice glass of wine or a mug of good beer can make a good time into a great one. That said, we are not a bar. You are not going to find domestic beer or cheap wine in our café. Our focus has always been to provide quality service, food, and drink to make your visit with us a memorable and enjoyable one,” says Sarah Tyler, director of operations at the Heirloom Market & Cafe.
Nick Heid of the Heirloom Market & Café said that they will be offering six different types of craft beers exclusively on tap. He also stated that some of the beers will be seasonal as they look for the next big seasonal craft beer.
They are starting with a collection of: Bent River Brewery’s Uncommon Stout, Boulder’s Hazed & Infused, New Belgium’s Dig, Sam Adams’ Alpine Spring, Goose Island’s 312, and Blue Moon Brewing Company’s Blue Moon. “We wanted to start out by offering a great variety of beers to get a feel for what our customers will like. From the dark full bodied blend of the Uncommon Stout, to the lighter yet seasonal fruit notes offered in the Sam Adams Alpine Spring, I feel as though there is a great selection,” says Heid.
For their wine selection they have chosen to offer wine made by Brush Creek Winery. According to Sherry Weuste, co-owner of Brush Creek Winery, the Heirloom Market & Café will be offering seven award-winning wines. They will have a dry red, a dry white, a semi-sweet red, a semi-sweet white, a sweet red, a sweet white, and a blush.
