It seems like the holiday season comes up like a getaway driver trying to make a deadline.
We’re here to help. Let’s talk politics and then maybe start Christmas shopping.
We’re here to help. Let’s talk brewskis and watch the game.
Sluice (rhymes with loose) Juice.
You’re probably wondering what’s good for new beers. If you haven’t tried them yet, Bent Water – a brewery out of Lynn, MA – has made some reportedly [link to reviews affirming this ] great beer, albeit some very strange name choices. But names are weird anyway and we’ve got a game to watch, so back to the matter at hand.
What’s on Tap
￼ SLUICE JUICE NEW ENGLAND IPA ABV: 6.2% WITH AROMATICS OF ORANGE, TANGERINE AND LIME PEEL, SLUICE JUICE IS OUR JUICY, HAZY AND SMOOTH NEW ENGLAND IPA.
It’s called Bent Water Sluice. And at $14.99 and 9% alcohol, if you enjoy a good IPA, this crafty beer is a no-brainer.
The Double Thunder Funk
$15.80 (plus deposit)
When you succeed with an IPA called Thunder Funk, the next thing you do is deliver a Double IPA called Double Thunder Funk.
From their website:
DOUBLE IPA ABV: 9.2% DOUBLE THUNDER FUNK IS THE BIG, BAD SIBLING OF OUR BEST SELLING BEER, THUNDER FUNK.
TO MAKE IT, WE TOOK OUR ORIGINAL THUNDER FUNK RECIPE AND MADE EVERYTHING BIGGER: MORE GRAIN AND MORE HOPS, RESULTING IN MORE POWER AND MORE FLAVOR. DESPITE CLOCKING IN AT 9.2% ABV, THIS MONSTER IPA IS SURPRISINGLY SUBTLE IN ITS STRENGTH YET DELIVERS INTENSE HOP AROMA AND FLAVOR.
What Else Do we Have?
Boris 6 pack $12.99 Goat 4 pack, 16 oz $11.99 Pearl 4 pack, 16 oz $11.25 Premium Lager: 4 pack, 16 oz $10.99
Another super cool, wicked popular IPA is the Suborbital. We sell the 4 pk, 16 oz￼ for $12.99.
4 pk 16 oz: $16.99 –

As we mentioned earlier, times are strange. There’s no better than time than in these strange days [indeed] to get down with some strange brew.
Next post: We’ve got you covered this Thanksgiving. Trust us on this one.

Suffice it to say, we owe it all to our awesome customers. Joe has always brought this idea that all the preparation we do each week is “sort of like throwing a party. I just hope that people want to come.”
I love this attitude!
“Big” weekends on Cape Cod are sort of a big deal for our business… and many, many others on Cape Cod. Yes, traffic can grind to a stop especially even if your air conditioning is not functioning. That said, however, traffic has been trickling in all week long and we think this weekend will be an awesome one from the weather to the windows to the walls (no whammy, no whammy, no whammy!)
Thank you for making us Cape Cod Life’s favorite Liquor Store for the 5th year running. We can’t wait to say hello, to patrons both new and old this weekend.
We’ll be making the most of the upcoming Memorial Day Weekend.
We’ll definitely find a way to celebrate our Brand New Gold Star too, so don’t miss out as we kick off both the Summer of 2019 as well as our shoes. Just as soon as we finish our shift.
2. Take advantage of some major savings, as the Winter Wine Sale has been extended through until the end of this weekend (because we work hard for the money too, dammit!)
3. Get your craft down to C.Liquor’s all March and expect to save 20% on your craft beer purchase from big singles display. (while supplies last, of course.)
As we said before, we love our customers. We love our community and want to show our camaraderie through our least favorite months. Thank you for showing us love back by taking this survey and making us champions (no whammy, no whammy, no whammy!)
Did you want to get anything done today? Oh, sorry, it looks like the weather has usurped any motivation you had.
There is good news!
Cranberry Liquors has the whatyou need to beat the summer heat.
We’re helping Harwich Port get ‘back to cool.’ 😉
Here at Cranberry Liquors, we have
A beer cooler filled with beer (and it is a giant walk-in fridge. I’d be lying if I said we didn’t take turns taking shelter inside of it.)
Chilled wine… rose, white and sparkling… and it is right beside the registers! That’s right.. we don’t even make you walk to the back of the grocery store to get the milk.
So if your face is melting off too, don’t even bother with trying to re-apply your make up. Maybe the lawn sprinkler is good enough for your three year old neighbors, but Harwich Port’s favorite liquor store has an idea for all you 21+ years old folks out there:
Get a cold glass of something to beat the heat. Heck, get two! We also sell ice, to keep your beer and wine cold and to throw at unsuspecting seagulls people.

Pro Tip: Don’t be this guy… (Click the photo for the whole video but fair warning- they definitely say the F word a lot in the video.)
At least he’s drinking bud!
We’re open until 10 PM tonight, however we suggest stopping whatever you’re doing because you’re probably getting frustrated and getting a sunburn. In fact, you’re probably doing it wrong if only because it is SO hot out (I know I was.)
Give yourself permission. Take the rest of this extremely hot day… off.
Summertime, at least this year, is arriving in fits and starts. Usually by now, folks are racing to the beach to escape the heat and humidity. This year so far, not so much.
Because Cape Cod weather can be so unpredictable, we want to assure you of one thing: Cranberry Liquors is your all-weather liquor store. Plan your purchase to match the current or forecast weather. Rain or shine, hot or cold, dry or humid, we’ve got you covered.
If it looks like temps are going to be in the upper 70’s or higher, you might consider any of the following for your refreshment.
Pick Your Poison
Beer: Whether you’ve just finished mowing the lawn or coming back from the beach, nothing’s quite like an ice cold beer on a hot day.
And from Banana Bread to Hog Island, if we don’t carry it, we’d love to…
No, only the important years. And this year happens to be an important one! Why, you might ask?
Because of the way the holidays stacked up, from Easter to Cinco De Mayo, and the fact that they cancelled spring this year, we’re pretty sure everyone needs a restful, seriously excellent weekend.
Without further ado, we’ve got Mother’s Day ideas for the mom who likes her pink wine, to the mom who likes her margarita with triple sec and extra salt.
2018 Wines for Mom
Other than for you to move out of her basement, what does your mom really want?
Rosés are still it, guys.
Things to know:
Do they like:
– dry or sweet (white or pink) wine?
– Domestic or Imported (California or French / Spanish / Italian?)
Hint: Raid her cabinet (or her Pinterest board) to see what she’s been into.
These are the wines Cranberry Liquors is betting our beer money on this year.
New Rosé 2018
The Mirabeau – (not to be confused with the Miraval rosé), this award winning rosé from rosé land (Provence, France,) this is a well priced, award winning wine. You can read more here (or just read the blog and come visit us at Cranberry Liquors.)
AIX – a french wine also from AIX/ Aix en Provence. Another award winner from that dominion/region in France that seems to churn out the best pink wine there is.
Read about the AIX here – I’m looking forward to this wine in particular.
Both the AIX and the Mirabeau retail at $17.99.
Contenders also include Dark Horse (a California/ domestic), the Mimi and the Apothic Rosé. We carried these wines last year, but prices have come down a bit on these.
Apothic Rosé: $11.99
“Apothic Rosé 2017 features vibrant flavors of strawberry with a hint of raspberry.With a great balance between sweet and sour notes, this wine fully delivers on the profile of Provençal-style Rosés. With a refreshing yet creamy finish, this wine is light in style but dark in nature.”
Dark Horse: $9.99
Tasting notes on this popular wine
“Cinsaut – Grenache – Syrah is a blend of grape varieties commonly grown and blended in southern France. This classic combination is used most commonly to make Provence‘s famous rosé wines, which display crisp, aromatic flavors of berryfruit and spice. The blend is also used to make some red wines, particularly in the appellations of the southern Rhone Valley and in the Languedoc-Roussillon area.”
Do a little shopping, buy something for mom too…
Not bad for Mom’s big day…
And if your mom will go for a beer or a glass of pink stuff, can we highly recommend the Angry Orchard Rose? Honestly, when this cider came out I was pretty confident it wouldn’t sell (thankfully, I don’t do the ordering.)
I was wrong!Angry Orchard made pink sparkly, light and inspired by “Amour Rouge” apples and that pink thing everyone is doing. At $9.50 a six pack, (plus bottle deposit) you’ve got six chances to make mom very, very happy.
For Moms Who Like Beer
We don’t play into stereotypes so we’ll just say this: Moms love beer. All kinds.
A personal favorite (over 5 years and still going strong!) is the Lambic Framboise Raspberry Beer. I remember the first time I had it the man who suggested it (Hi Adam!) said
“It’s just raspberry and hops. That’s it!” And it’s wicked, wicked good.
The other beer that’s great for warmer spring days is the Schofferhofer grapefruit beer. My favorite anecdote about this beer is the time the two 7 foot tall German guys came in speaking as much English as I do Spanish, telling me “this beer is most popular in Germany.” They walked out with the two and a half cases we had in stock.
Grapefruit-y, light effervescent beer that isn’t played out like Corona? Yes please.
Plus, just like the mixed case discounts we offer, mix-a-six pack of craft singles and continue to save ten percent!
Ideas for Mom who Shops
Two Words: Gift. Card.
Make an afternoon of it with your dear little mama.
Buying a C.Liquors gift card makes for three excellent solutions:
– The mom who is seemingly indifferent to “stuff” (hint: if she shops at X-mas Tree Shop, this is not your mom.)
– The mom who prefers “the experience” to the “stuff” (a la’ those commercials for a Groupon app.)
– The mom who is never happy with what you get her
– The mom you have nothing to do with.
Plus, get her a gift card and she can buy her extra super fancy liqueur and neither of you has to feel guilty! You can put $25 toward her 100 yearcognac /Grand Marnier Cuvée du Centenaire (it happens all the time.)
Mom doesn’t drink
Hmm, wish I could help you but… kidding! Come by Cranberry Liquors, give us the scoop, and we’ll have a great suggestion for you. There are plenty of people in Harwich Port who know exactly what your mom wants (they probably know your mom if you’re from here too…)
Note: C.Liquors offers gift bags and other items to make it look like you put all the effort into making their present presentable!
Olly Olly in free, ladies and gentlemen. If you haven’t bought a ticket to this year’s Toast of Harwich yet
They are almost sold out!
That is an awesome thing (it’s a charity event, after all…)
But it’s not so great if you wanted to go and have been noncommittal.
So get one?
In all seriousness, the annual Toast Of Harwich tend to sell out – this is no accident! Chamber members and local establishments taking part all do their best to sell tickets to this great Harwich-ian event.
But… and this is a really big BUT (let’s talk about your big butt, Simone…) if you have never attended the Toast of Harwich, it’s a seriously locals-only thing to do. I mean, if you’ve never gone to the Wequassett, if you’ve never hung out with the local business owners who do their thing, if you’ve never worn dressy clothes, drank wine and whiskey and laughed with strangers about finger food or dance to the “Rip It Ups”… and not gotten a kick out of ANY of what I just said… don’t go!
Take it from someone who 1.) went as the photographer one year, 2.) went as a wine pourer for several years and 3.) went last year with my dad (his name is Joe, and he will do “This is Joe” in his radio commercial voice if you ask really nicely.)
I did not, I repeat, did not want to go as any of the above things. And every single year, I wondered “why do I do this every year? It’s always the best time I have all spring.”
Cranberry Liquors has sponsored the wine tasting for this event for the 8th time this year. This is because we love Harwich and believe C.Liquors is a part of Harwich Port’s community.
PROTIP: If you don’t know what you want to drink, that’s why they invented these events. To figure out what you like…
PROTIP II: If you think everyone there will know more about wine and spirits then you, then you’ve been drinking all wrong! Come have a good time and be a local toasty person. It’s fun and you might find your new favorite wine, restaurant or best friend.
