Ok so the attempt at weekly updates and a written blog fell by the wayside. Turns out it is a lot of work to write something for a website with any kind of regularity. We are planning to be more dilligent here. Yeah I know you have heard it before. It is true that we are planning for videos and all kinds of fun stuff. Sometimes you just have to bear with us. Plus if you ever want a long monolouge on anything stop by the store, we can talk forever. Anyway enjoy the new stuff on the website and we hope to see you soon.

 

12-12-08

Hey all. We are working on getting this website fully updated for the first time in a while. One of the big changes you will notice is that we are going to try to turn this into a weekly blog discussing products in the store and issues involving booze in general. Hopefully we will have everything up and running soon.

Ok so sometimes when we do a web update we just forget to fill out this log. I kind of wonder how many people look at it anyway. Well a lot has gone on and a lot is going on at Star. Why even as I speak we are taking advantage of a new law that allows us to invite beer reps into the store to do tastings. Between that and the wine tastings we are going thru a lot of sample cups these days. What else is new? Well Jason got married, Jerry is planning his 50th birthday and Adam went to Argentina. Otherwise everything preety much the same. Come see us soon.

 

11-4-06

Holy cow it has been a long time since we have had a web update. So what is new with you? Nothing? What do you mean nothing? Ok, ok so that is how that question always gets answered. Here at Star we are planning for the holidays of course. More and more really good wine comes thru the doors every week and they will be waiting for you on the 15th and beyond. We just had our Halloween contest again and you can check out the events page to see our finalists. You can also come in and vote for your favorite until Nov. 18th. We are also planning a whiskey tasting for January check out the on the floor page to get details and see pictures from whiskey tastings we have had and been to in years past. Food, fun and great wine await us all over the next few months so come in and let Star Liquor make it easier than ever for you.

Boy it is hard to believe it has been four months since the last update but here we are. Well it has been one heck of a hot summer and we have all had our fair share of drinking beer and chilled wine. We are getting close to the end but some of summers best moments are still to come. The Great Taste of the Midwest is this weekend and everyone that got a ticket this year is really looking forward to the event. Football season is coming up too so make sure you have enough cold beer for all those preseason Packer games. We are still drawing for the kegarator in September so come on in and sign up.

Welcome web fans. As I write this the doors to Star are wide open bringing in that long awaited smells of spring. Our tastes change with the warmer weather, cold beers taste even better, and our thoughts turn to Gin and Tonics over a dram of Islay Scotch Whisky. As I write this we are in the process of ordering our wines of summer including a boat load of wonderful dry Rose wines from France. These wines will arrive in late May or early June, just in time for summer BBQ and sipping on the porch. Also take note, we have committed to thousands of dollars worth of 2002-2003 German wines. These are fantastic summer wines, light, crisp and refreshing with just a hint of fruit. Jerry, Jason and Adam will be leaving for the hills of Kentucky to tour the top Bourbon distilleries ( I know you want our jobs) This will give us a good education and understanding of this popular American made product. Watch for our photos from our trip and be sure to talk to us personally about the experience. With Bourbon on the mind, our annual "Run For The Roses" Kentucky Bourbon promotion will be featured the end of April. Ask about getting FREE fresh mint here at Star with your bourbon purchase. We are also close to rolling out our second web site SLURPWINE.COM watch for details on this exciting new concept from your friends at Star. DO NOT FORGET TICKETS FOR THE GREAT TASTE OF THE MIDWEST GO ON SALE MAY 1ST. LAST YEAR THEY SOLD OUT IN 8 DAYS, EXPECT THEM TO GO EVEN QUICKER THIS YEAR. CHECK THE BEER PAGES FOR MORE INFO!

Greetings web fans. A new year is here and with that Star Liquor has updated our web site with fun new products for your enjoyment. During this, the long cold dead of winter in Wisconsin, it is nice to curl up with a good book, fireplace a roar and sip a fine Bourbon or Cognac. We have many new Single Malt Scotch Whiskies that have arrived since the holiday's and worth your inspection. I have just returned from a trip to California, which included time in Napa, Santa Cruz, and Central Coast. Stop in to hear what's new and exciting from the left coast in wines.

As we write, Adam from Star is spending almost 2 weeks in Italy and more specific the region of Tuscany tasting wines, eating, tasting wines and eating ( it is a tough job at Star, but we do it all for you) Ahh...... Spring time in Tuscany, it almost seems like heaven on earth. OOPS..... sorry got carried away. So if you see Adam in April, please be sure to ask him about his trip and watch his eyes glaze over as he swoons about Springtime in Tuscany!

 

02-28-03

Welcome friends. The new year has now set in for us all and 2003 is filled with unknowns. War, loss of jobs and the economy all looms as dark spots already for 2003. The wine and spirits industry has also felt the effects of a slowed economy. Wine sales at the high end have slowed as we all look to stretch our money further. California has seen an ocean of wine backing up to their doorsteps, as well as Australia due to several factors; California is over priced, plain and simple. While Australia suffers from huge productions and slowed sales. It takes time for prices to reflect market conditions but some movement has occurred in a positive price direction. California has to get real and understand that us consumers can not be fooled into paying $45.00 for a bottle of wine only worth 15 bucks. Don't get me wrong, a lot of great wines are made in the new world, and many are worth prices charged. Yet, with values from Spain, France and other parts of the world what wine salesperson would not lead a customer to that kind of value over a selection from California. We have sold over 500 cases of wine from Spain alone in the last 6 months, all wonderful drinking wines that pleased a lot of customers. And THAT is the bottom line, pleasure from what you buy and the satisfaction of knowing that you didn't have to break the bank to get that enjoyment.

We are committed at Star to finding just those wines for you. Many are limited, many are names you may never remember, but each week we taste, select and offer those wines for you to consider for purchase. Wines of value AND distinction.

Adam from Star will be leaving for 2 weeks in Tuscany this March, so ask him about his trip and what new things he saw in the land of enchantment ( Tuscany)

Also, some of our staff will be attending the Whiskey Fest, cosponsored by The Malt Advocate Magazine in Chicago. Give a yell to Jason or Adam in April to get all the details ( well at least the ones they can remember)

Spring seasonal beers are fully here, make sure you get your fill of these wonderful spring bocks before we all have to drink light bodied wheat beers again for the summer months.

Thanks for all your support in 2002, and we look forward to serving you in the year ahead.

Greetings WEB fans. I know it has been a while since our last update, and wanted to take this time to explain why. Our Star "team" went to the Whisky Fest in Chicago a while back, and we were expecting to have great photos and story about it to report back to you. Well..... as things would happen, our digital camera got lost in the big windy city, event pics and all. So we had to do our homework and purchase another camera to get our site back up and rolling as we like to be. Now we promise to be up to date and provide you with all the great new things happening at Star Liquor.

Speaking of NEW at Star, some time ago we purchased another Dot com web address. I can't tell you everything about it now...... but soon you will see an amazing NEW concept for our customers and the web. Here is the site address...... book mark it and soon you will understand why :-)

Slurpwine.com

Our WINE department is overflowing with GREAT values from France right now, not to mention we still have a super selection of Spanish and Italian wines packing our shelves. These are from great vintages, and are priced well below those of the new world. Enjoy

WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN

Tickets to the "GREAT TASTE OF THE MIDWEST BEER FEST"

Yes, THIS EVENT IS sold out but we are giving away 2 tickets every Friday till the event. Good luck to all and see you there!

Welcome web friends to the show that never ends..... ELP for all you old timers. We have changed about 75% of our offerings on the site so spend some time looking at all the NEW and exciting things. Our beer department is going full steam, lots of new highly rated beers in stock while sales on some old favorites. The season is soon changing, and the beers reflect that change with the addition of Mai Bocks galore. The liquor department also has some fun new items, and check out the Web ONLY prices. Just mention to your friendly Star server that you saw it here and get that price. Also, speaking of liquor... well how about Tequila, we are thinking of doing a tasting in May.... something that would be a "learn more about Tequila" and have fun as well. The location would be the Pasqual's on Monroe Street ( BTW if you have not treated yourself, check out the new ownership and HIGH quality food being served up there NOW) Speaking of employees, we are happy ( and sad ) that Brian has left us to.. (Oh don't say it's true ) get a real job and career. Best of luck Brian from the whole crew at Star, we'll miss ya you CrAzY dude! The good news is that we have three new young Star Liquor upstarts, Jessica, Edson and Chris.... so everyone be gentle on them till they get broken in.... Ok, back to alcohol related items. The wine department has the store flooded with bargains from around the world. The best values STILL are in France, Spain, Australia, Italy.... Mmm..... NOT California. We have a wine from southern France that is SO big in flavor, we recommend that you wear a helmet while drinking ( yes, safety is job one here at Star ). Also in April, we are contracting a huge purchase of new and old favorites from Spain. These wines are a million times better than just 5 years ago, great prices and VALUE! Watch for the signs and on here.

Look for a total web update on all pages early this month with new and hot items arriving at Star. Our wine department has a wonderful French wine sale starting soon..... great direct import prices from fantastic small producers. Remember, French, Spanish and Italian wines are STILL your best value in today's wine market so stock up during our Sale. The beer department is in the process of cutting a FANTASTIC deal on a midwest Micro Brewery line that will make every beer lover smile. Still kind of a secret, but watch the Micro Brewery page for details. Also watch for a drawing and giveaway ALSO from our beer department, something everyone can use for summer. We will be making some minor changes to our web site "look" now that we have a feel for things better..... nothing too drastic, but minor changes will occur in the next month. Also watch for a report from Jason, as he and two other employees attend a Italian winemakers event in Chicago on June 4th...... details and photos to follow.

After a large and elegant meal with big wigs from Gordon and Macphail (the oldest continuos independent bottler of single malt scotch) Da-Mace decided it would be a really good idea to show some of our G And M Products on the site. We have some great rare single malts floating around the store. We all have been eyeing them for some time, but have kept our grubby little paws off the bottles so that you, yes you, could enjoy them. Check out the Liquor Page to get an idea of what we have.
The Mighty King Of Beer just picked up some killer bottles and has been itchin' to let the public know about them. So, on the Micro Beer page and the Import Beer page you will find quite a few new additions.
For all of you in the Madison area, we at Star Liquor have a close friendship with our neighbors at Willy Street Co-op! Each month in the Willy Street Reader there are several yummy recipes. We have wine recommendations for those recipes. Check out the Willy Street Reader for more details.

Greetings, What a wonderful time of year, spring is on the way, weather is warmer in good old Wisconsin and our Spanish wine sale is in progress. That's right, as promised, we have a huge selection of great Spanish wine bargains on our floor. Us wine buyers spent the month of February tasting over 100 wines from Spain, many of which impressed us greatly. Silky smooth ones, powerhouse reservas, and organic offerings. These wines that exhibit flavors that most of you haven't really tasted before. We believe that these wines represent a HUGE value in the world market today. Experiment and enjoy!

Not to slight our hard working beer department, check out the fantastic new offerings at Star. From brand new items to seasonal offerings from favorite brewers. Oh... and check out that Red Seal Ale, wow! Also for those who become a wee bit more Irish this month, our beer department has all the favorites on sale, just in time to celebrate the season.

So stop by and say HI to all of us here at Star, or if you feel like it, you can always email us here with your thoughts and questions, we LOVE to get mail !

 

 

02-10-01

Welcome one and all! If you have been here before, it's nice to have you back. If this is your first time then we hope you enjoy your stay. It's a warm and sunny day here in Madison, the temperature actually reached 17 degrees today. A lovely sheet of ice covers the sidewalk making it nearly impossible to walk anywhere, so, as you probably guessed, we've been spending quite a bit of time indoors working on our site. Some amazing beers just came in so you should check out the beer pages. Also, we just put in a privacy and legal statement which is really neat, take a second and read it. It has pictures to make the experience more pleasant.

02-02-01

Happy Ground Hogs Day! We have been busy with buying new wines of value and our "On The Floor" page lists many of them. Our beer department also has some great specials for you this month so don't miss those pages either. Near the end of February we will be running a huge wine feature from another part of the world that has great values. Check back and see what's up in a few weeks. Also we would like to point out that we now have an e-mail feature at our site, allowing for your questions and comments or just to say hi to us if you want.

Welcome to our little corner of the World Wide Web for Star Liquor. The goal of this site will be to allow you, our customer
to visit departments of our store here to see what is new, and hot before you stop and shop. We also will be featuring links to what we believe are sites that are informative and helpful, and will teach you more about our products in general. Cooking sites will be a focus, because we believe that the pairing of food and wine is paramount in making this all make sense. Look for other features down the road like an online newsletter that will be printable, special offers with our local Willy Street merchants, event schedules for tastings related to what we sell. Soon, we will have e-mail feature so you may contact us here with your special requests. Also watch this "update log" to see what is new on our site, or just to catch our messages to you, our customer.

Thanks for visiting, and enjoy your stay. You comments are very welcome in how we may better serve you here, or in the store.
