This weekend the gourmet coffee joint Guillermo's debuted it's beer and wine bar, which stays open till 10 on weeknights and 1 a.m. on weekends. "If you look at the flavor wheel for coffee and beer and wine, they're almost exactly the same. It seemed a natural fit," said owner Hans Oliver. "Bright blueberry notes, with a full body and citrusy aftertaste — I could be describing wine or coffee." Guillermo's will only serve craft beers — Diamond Bear, Breckenridge Vanilla Porter, Boulevard Wheat and Fat Tire among them — and it will match its wine choices against its coffees. "Some Merlots are fruity and some coffees are fruity, such as Ethiopian Harrar, which has blueberry notes, or Eithiopian Yirgacheffe, which has notes of dark chocolate and cherry...based on your coffee tastes, we can probably tell which kind of wine you would like and vice versa," he said. Currently Guillermo's is offering 10 reds, eight whites and eight beers, but these will all be rotated, just as the coffee offerings are rotated. Guillermo's is also adding tapas, which will be available till close. The menu is still developing, but so far there's a meat, cheese and fruit plate, crispy baguette with goat cheese, tomato and pesto, and a humus platter. The first visitors are the lucky ones. According to Oliver, customers who check out the beer and wine bar now are likely to receive free samples in exchange for free opinions. "We love to take opinions as we hone our selections," he said. Happy hour is from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. It's $1 off beer and $5 wine, for open bottles.

Guillermo's is at 10700 Rodney Parham Parkway.
