Austinites are serious about our happy hour deals — and we’ve got another one to try out starting on Tuesday.

The downtown bar Small Victory, which has been making its mark on the local bar scene with a curated list of classic cocktails, is launching happy hour that will run 5 to 8 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays.

Happy hour will feature half-priced fortified wines — sherry, madeira and port — as well as sparkling and rosé wines by the glass and by the bottle. It’s an opportunity to try some off-the-beaten-path wines that don’t always make traditional wine lists.

“The wine program at Small Victory is small, but thoughtful, and focused on quality above all else,” according to a news release. “All of the wines are ‘natural,’ small production, authentic examples of their particular regions from producers considered to be best-in-class by journalists, merchants, sommeliers, and other members of the wine trade.”

While you’re there, you’ll probably be lured into try Small Victory’s cocktails as well, in particular the martinis that you can order based on your exact specifications with the help of a flowchart on the menu. Longtime Austin bartender Josh Loving opened Small Victory as a way to shine renewed light on lesser-known classic drinks like the Artists’ Special, with Scotch whisky, sherry, grenadine and lemon juice.

The tiny 800 sq. ft. bar is located at 108 E. Seventh St. For more information, visit facebook.com/smallvictorybar/.
