Frolic with Dancing Hares Vineyard

Frolic with Dancing Hares Vineyard

Tis the season for the hares to be frolicking within the vineyards of Napa Valley and this season is going great for Dancing Hares Vineyard.  This small estate offers a variety of wines that are sourced from grapes that grow within a range of soils you would be hard-pressed to find anywhere else in such an outstanding display.  Sitting on just 5 acres, you wouldn’t believe the quality that this little estate is capable of producing until you taste their wines.  Their premium wines are exquisite, with an air of dedication and commitment that seems to be infused into every bottle […]

IPAs and great food pairing

IPAs and great food pairing

Recently, we’ve spent quite a bit of time checking into different craft beer, new craft breweries, and outstanding brewers here in the United States.  The result has been the creation of a long list of really great, high-quality craft beers and breweries that we plan to revisit.  However, we don’t spend that much time talking about the food pairing aspect of craft beer.  We’d like to change that, so today, we’re going to focus on the really great food we’ve had that paired up well with our brews. With so many different types of craft beer on the market, it […]

RustRidge Ranch & Winery: High standards in the field

RustRidge Ranch & Winery: High standards in the field

At Rustic Ridge Ranch & Winery in California, the high standards they have set for their service extend to every aspect of their operations.  Located on a former Thoroughbred breeding farm, the owners continued the tradition of racing excellence and still breed and race outstanding athletes in the Thoroughbred racing industry.  However, they’ve taken that high standard and applied it to another area as well, the production of amazing premium wines. Wine and horses are a winning combination While you might think that wine-making and horse racing are not exactly great bedfellows, you would be wrong, at least according to history. […]

Scoggins Wines has delicious Pinot Noir!

Scoggins Wines has delicious Pinot Noir!

When we went searching for a really outstanding Pinot Noir we were directed to the Russian River Valley where Scoggins Wines is located.  From what we were told, Scoggins Wines was THE place to go for great Pinot Noir and after we paid them a visit, we had to agree!  It seems that they are sourcing their fruit very specifically through special agreements with area vineyards and have access to blocks that were previously unattainable.  We were highly impressed with their wine and we thought it would be a great idea to let you, our readers, know about them and […]

Great meals to pair with your craft beer

Great meals to pair with your craft beer

If there is one thing people love as much as they love craft beer, it would be food.  Not just food in general, but great food.  This is why so many craft breweries host food trucks or offer their own pub food for their patrons.  Pairing food with craft beer has become something akin to pairing wine and cheese and we all know how picky folks can get about that (including us).  The same is happening in the craft brewing community, with folks researching to find that perfect craft beer to go with their meal and we think this trend […]

Lost Coast Brewing: A world of adventure

While brewing craft beer on a lost coast might sound a bit fruitless, the reality is far from that.  Lost Coast Brewing has gained quite a following and is producing some absolutely outstanding craft beer.  Their quality and creativity have caught the attention of thousands of enthusiasts all over the United States, including those of us here at West Palm Beach Brewery and Wine Vault in south Florida.  We saw one of the labels of a Lost Coast brew and simply had to see what their craft beers were all about. Visiting Lost Coast is an adventure in itself When […]

Crazy Mountain Brewing

Crazy Mountain Brewing

When it comes to interesting places to visit among the many older and new craft breweries throughout the United States, Crazy Mountain Brewing has to be one of the best.  We recently tried some of their brews and we all decided it was time to pay them a visit and see what their operation was like.  We were really impressed with their knowledgeable staff, great attitudes, and inquisitive natures that fuel creative minds throughout the entire production facility. If it weren’t for the fact that Colorado is also one of the most beautiful states in the country, this brewery would […]

The Two of Tarts always wins

The Two of Tarts always wins

We recently received a note from one of our readers asking about the style of brew that is called a Gose brew.  We have tried these brew types before and thought “Sure, why not feature one of them?”, so off we went to check into Upland Brewing Company, whose Two Of Tarts is an outstanding Gose beer that really impressed us. What is a Gose brew? A Gose brew is an older, German style of brew that is an unfiltered wheat beer that holds a huge malt bill and is very low in hops.  In fact, many Gose brews leave […]

Founders Azacca IPA is worth waiting for

Founders Azacca IPA is worth waiting for

We’ve featured Founders Brewing Company many times in the past due to their outstanding craft beer, as well as their dedication to the craft brewing industry and to the quality of all of their brews.  Today we’re taking a look at Founders Azacca IPA, which is a seasonal brew from Founders and well-worth waiting for.  This brew won’t come available again until January, as it just finished its run at the end of March, but you might be able to find some for trade if you’re lucky. Founders is always providing us with new reasons to love craft beer Founders […]
