What You'll Get
Drinking wine is an activity that sometimes makes people believe they’re funnier, smarter, and 2 feet taller than they actually are. Bask in the power of belief with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get an admission package for two to the International Wine and Food Festival at Speers Beers on Sunday, December 11 (a $115 total value). Choose from the following admission times:
- 4 p.m.– 5 p.m.
- 5 p.m.– 6 p.m.
- 6 p.m.– 7 p.m.
- 7 p.m.– 8 p.m.<p>
The admission package includes the following:
* Two tickets to the tasting (a $45 value each)
* A carrying bag for six bottles of wine (a $5 value)
* A $20 store credit for wines sampled
Within a sprawling 4,000-square-foot store brimming with bottles, Speers Beers’ experienced staff guides guests through tastings of 25 to 30 international wines during a tasting festival that spans four hours. Guests peruse tables laden with white and red varieties on temporary loan from regions of the U.S., Australia, New Zealand, Spain, Italy, and Canada. Wine connoisseurs test palates with pours at each station and supply tasting notes about each wine, such as which grapes respond poorly to stomping but well to Swedish massage. While tasting, samplers pair sips with a spread of cheese, crackers, fruits, and chocolates. Visitors fill their carrying bags with bottles using their store credit, which can be used to lure in any vinous potion sampled that day (wines range from $12.99–$34.99). Speers Beers grants an additional 15% off on cases and can order specialty items not in stock upon verbal or silent, charades-style request.

About Speers' Beers
Speers’ Beers fills every nook and cranny of its 4,000-square-foot building with wines whose grapes ripened around the globe. Vintages from the European vineyards of Spain and Italy mingle with fermentations from Australia and New Zealand, while wines from the United States share shelf space with Canadian bottles. In addition to its array of vintages, the liquor store keeps imported and craft beers cold in a 800-square-foot cooler, which recently replaced the snowman that hugged them all day.
