Selection of Beer

Your Kentlands Beer Store

As your friendly Kentlands beer store, we try to stock all the popular brands of domestic beers, crafts microbrews, and import beers. We are not your upscale "hotsy totsy" kind of a beer store. We are more like a comfortable pair of shoes, with a few holes for ventilation. In other words, we are your regular old neighborhood beer and wine store, where it's not uncommon to see customers popping in wearing almost anything. We try to stick to the basics of running a good beer and wine store: plenty of inventory on hand, at prices you can afford.

Your Beer Favorites

Which brands and varieties of beer do you like best? As your Gaithersburg beer store, we want to stock what you want to drink. Tell us about your favorite beers so we know what you like. Or, cast a vote by simply buying what you like. We'll do our best to keep it in stock for your next visit.

Fun Facts about Beer

And since you're in the mood to read, here are a few fun facts about beer. Beer is the world's oldest and most widely consumed alcoholic beverage, and the third most popular drink overall, after water and tea. Today, the brewing industry is a global business, consisting of several dominant multi-national companies and many thousands of smaller producers ranging from brewpubs to regional breweries. More than 35 billion gallons of beer are sold every year, producing total global revenues in excess of $300 billion dollars. Now that's truly a lot of beer.

Selection of Wine

When it comes to wine, we follow the popular trends on what's hot and what's not. We try to cater to our customers' requests. If you can't find a particular wine in stock, simply ask us to order it for you. We don't mind stocking your favorite wine for your future visits to our Gaithersburg wine store. For those of you who need a little help in selecting the right wine for the right occasion, we have included some helpful information about this wonderful type of alcohol here.

How to Match Food with Wine

You can match food with wine according to either similarities or contrasts.

  • Pair higher acid foods (tomatoes, citrus fruit, goat cheese) with higher acid wines (Sauvignon Blanc, Chianti, Pinot Noir).
  • Pair richer, fattier foods (duck, lamb, beef, cheese) with slightly oaky Chardonnay or young Cabernet or Red Zinfandel.
  • Pair spicy, salty, or smoked dishes with lighter, fruitier wines like Gewurztraminer, Riesling, Beaujolais, or Chenin Blanc.

It's important to match not just the flavors of the wine with the food but also its body and weight.
