Easy Shopping at ABS Alcohol Beverage Services

Our local Montgomery County Liquor & Wine store is located nearby at 12155 Darnestown Road, Gaithersburg, Maryland 20878. I am on the email list for the ABS Alcohol Beverage Services website and noticed that they were having a sale on Black Box wines. We needed a new bottle of Cafe Lolita Coffee Liqueur and I made my list for the wine selections to pick up. 

This is a great store for wine and liquor shopping. The staff is very helpful and parking is convenient.  We are going to sample some of the Black Box wines that we have not previously tried and will make notes on our preferences for future shopping.

If you have not tried the Black Box wines, you may wish to give them a try.

Good morning Roy. When in Florida, Total Wine, was our "go to" place and now in Chicago it's "Binnys". They email their weekly promotions and have a loyalty club with rewards. Enjoy your beverages of choice.

How wonderful that there is a wine store in your area to recommend. Here wine is sold in grocery stores and gas stations, and liquor stores usually carry just a small selection. There are a lot more to choose from when grocery shopping.

This gives me a good idea, but not sure if it is available in my area, haha.  I know this store is not in my area, but I was thinking perhaps I could get a notification from a store that is when items I enjoy purchasing there go on sale, haha.

Call a Marana neighbor, I'm THERE!

I'm another Total Wine shopper, I must admit Roy Kelley    I have heard that Costco has a very good boxed wine product!  I've not heard of Black Box so it's good to be in the know.

The Cafe Lolita Coffee Liqueur sounds fascinating, Roy.  Is it kind of like Bailey's Irish Creme?

Cafe Lolita is a less expensive substitute for Kahula. We like it.
