FEED: Darkness. Tickets Still Available but limited!
see details below or on our website.




Holy Cacao, Batman!
At long last our rumored "triple chocolate rye" whiskey is available for sampling in the tasting room! 
We started with a 100% rye grain bill, including a heavy proportion of "chocolate" roasted rye, and mashed that with actual cacao. Then we fermented the mash, distilled it, and then infused the spirit with more cacao! The result is a truly unique beverage... spicy with rye, dark and bitter with cacao, and softened with medium oak.
This is the tiniest batch we've ever produced... one precious case!... so it won't be around for long. Come for your sips while it's here! (This spirit is not available by the bottle, only by the sip in the arthouse for$10 a pour!)
Tasting Room Happenings...

our tasting room is open Wednesdays and Fridays from 4pm-8:30ish. we usually host live music on Fridays, and sometimes Wednesdays. check our website calendar for focused arthouse events on days other than these, as we host a plethora of music, theatre, film, storytelling, and more! we do not serve food at the tasting room, but you are welcome and encouraged to bring in your own picnic and snacks!

The Mojazz Duo
and it's National Hot Toddy Day!
Wednesday, 1/11, 7pm-8:30ish

Come join these fine gents for an eve of fine sound, fine sips, and fine company! The duo is sans the drums, but not sans the feels! Paul of Mojo's music academy and the band Mojomama and Doug, horn extraordinaire will make your spine tingle.
 

Aural Elixir

Friday 1/13, 6:30pm-8:30ish

 
What a fine way to usher in the new year with the sweet and powerful depths of this local intoxicating talent! “(Aural Elixir’s unique sound is)… Joni Mitchell’s sly and perceptive confessional meets Fiona Apple’s confrontational doomed romantic, with little hints of Tori Amos’ gonzo earth mother and Carole King’s practical warmth.”

The Coteries

Wednesday 1/18, 6:30pm-8:30ish

 
We are super excited and honored to host The Coteries for their Still Cellars debut! Born out of the midst of an 11,000 mile North American road trip, these three friends and a plethora of instruments make folk americana to tap your big toe to! They released their debut EP, Reason in the Road, last summer and it is a long tale of discovery and the American countryside. Come give them and their beautiful sounds a warm, local welcome!

We are honored to host their poetry, song, and play with their insightful and witty lyrics and fine musicality and stage presence. We are sad to say that this will be the last HFTB show. Ever!? They didn't say. A reason enough to gather 'round.  Your hearts will smile. Your insides will be tickled., your toes will be tappin'.

The January Art show:
Relics From the Front


the art of 
Charles Michael Hickman
celebrating 20 years of painting!

Saturday, January 14th
4pm - 8pm
Cake at 5


 all proceeds benefit 
Warm Hearth

 

Charlie lives and paints in Longmont, Colorado. He started painting while drinking and snowboarding in Durango, Colorado in 1997. He has since quit snowboarding, and can be found drinking (on occasion) at Still Cellars.
His work "makes a severely profound and significant contribution to turn-of-the-millennium art. With one foot on the beating pulse of youth and the other on the bleeding edge of contemporary culture, I capture ecstatic visions from the crackling nexus of here and now.

The Ira Liss Show
featuring:

Alex White
&
Toluwa Obiwole
&
Ira Liss!


Saturday, January 21st
doors at 6:30pm, show at 7:30pm

pay what you wish!

**seating is limited!**
Come early to secure a seat and settle with sips!




Like a 21st century Gershwin, songwriter, entertainer, and interviewer, Ira Lisspacks his shows with piano, poetry and passion! His story-filled, character-based songs take you from the ridiculous to the sublime with a gentle, ironic sense of humor.
Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, through the decades he has performed as stand-up comic, writer, pianist, actor, improviser, singer/songwriter and produced shows at venues all over NYC and Colorado’s Front Range. 
His jazz blues piano, deep melodic voice, ironic sense of humor and dramatic storytelling, remind audiences of Tom Waits, Mose Allison, Stephen Sondheim and an unknown Broadway show! 
Ira recently developed this variety, music, talk show format to bring local artists to new audiences in a live setting. And, provide an opportunity for artists to talk about their life and work – similar to talkbacks you may have enjoyed after a performance of a drama or play.
Of course, we know that late night TV has presented nationally broadcast, celebrated variety/talk shows for decades. However, it is something else to experience a smaller scale show, locally produced in the beautiful intimate venue of Still Cellars in Longmont.

"like hundreds of years in future when everything is long gone, there will still be relics of humanity. these paintings are here entirely to confuse future civilizations. it's like religious art from a non-existent religion. sacred pictures from some people that didn't quite make it. everyone needs the props every once and a while, even if you worshiped at the wrong temple."
