While the word “stink” can conjure up some negative connotations, we at STINK Cheese-Meat and El Tufo Wine Bar believe the word represents everything good about old world food and drink. The Europeans have always treated wine and beer as food. For centuries they have understood the relationship between good food and drink that goes beyond satisfying hunger – it facilitates passion. We want you to experience what we already know.
With this said, we know STINK is not for everyone. You won’t find huge dinner portions or All-American fare, but if you are willing to step out of the box, we will show you a beer or wine that has stood the test of time. Our beverages not only taste amazing, they tell a story. Add a hunk of cheese or cured meat to the equation and it’s time to take a journey you will want to take again, and again.
