Why is pairing food important to taprooms?

Why is pairing food important to taprooms?

Old and new craft breweries all over the United States are coming to realize that pairing food is an important feature for their taprooms.  A well-paired meal can make all the difference in sales and word-of-mouth, which is one of the most relied-upon resources for advertising their craft beer.  Many breweries are going so far as to gain the proper licensing for serving their own food and renovating their taprooms to include this service, or even purchasing brand new properties for this purpose.  However, why is pairing food so important? Aren’t food trucks enough for pairing food? While food trucks […]

Barrel aging with rum barrels

Barrel aging with rum barrels

So, we all know that some blonde ales may be aged in chardonnay, or white wine barrels, right? And, you can get the “Scotch” or “bourbon” “burn” from, for example, a Russian Imperial Stout which is aged in bourbon barrels.  What about rum barrels?  There are other awesome beers out there that have been created using barrel aging too!  White wine, red wine, rum and bourbon barrels are more than just a trend, they’re a great way to add some serious kick to each individual brew! Beer aged in rum barrels is great! Check out Ipswich Ale Brewery’s series of […]

Pankauski Wine Cellars considering purchase of grapes at Drum Canyon Cellars

Pankauski Wine Cellars considering purchase of grapes at Drum Canyon Cellars

Pankauski Wine Cellars, whom we’ve entered into a contract with recently, has been checking out the vines at the Santa Barbara County vineyards of Drum Canyon Cellars.  Why?  They are considering the grapes for their 2017 vintage!  They were kind enough to include some pictures of the head-pruned vines for us to check out and this is certainly a well-organized vineyard!  While this news may seem a bit out of place for an upcoming craft brewery, it is very exciting to us here at West Palm Beach Brewery and Wine Vault. Why is this purchase by Pankauski Wine Cellars so […]

Catch a great dinner to pair with your brew

Catch a great dinner to pair with your brew

Summer brings with it the fishing season, which means there will be some amazing meals for pairing up with your craft beer.  While nothing is quite as satisfying as a well-paired meal with your brew, catching that meal yourself just might top it on the list.  However, even if you can’t go out and catch your dinner yourself, you can still select some great fish dinners for your next pairing session. What types of craft beer pair well with fish? This question has a variety of answers, due to the differences between species of fish.  For example, catfish has an […]

Red or White: Which type of wine do you prefer?

Red or White: Which type of wine do you prefer?

For those who love wine, there is always one varietal or another that truly lives close to their heart.  We’ve discussed this subject before, as it comes up quite often during our visits to different vineyards and we’re always curious as to what really makes a wine sing for each person we meet.  For us, the bold and robust wines seem to be the most memorable, as they demand to be noticed and remembered.  For others, it is the quiet and lilting nuances of more mellow wines that catch their attention.  Which wine do you prefer? Reds just may put […]

Russian River Valley Vineyards you’ll love

Russian River Valley Vineyards you’ll love

The Russian River Valley is booming with vineyards that are producing some of the most outstanding fruit of the area and wineries and vineyards across the United States and other countries are beginning to take notice.  Not only is this region picturesque, it hosts some excellent micro-climates, perfectly suited to the varietals that the region has become known for. Why are Russian River Valley vineyards so special? Just as with the absolutely delightful vineyards of Napa Valley, California, these vineyards are producing wines that are turning heads and gaining attention faster than a streaker at a football game.  The quality […]

Grow your own is the choice of some breweries

Grow your own is the choice of some breweries

With the agricultural market on a regular rollercoaster based on weather, the local economy and a market price that farmers fight hard to keep up with, it’s no surprise that many new craft breweries are taking to the idea of growing their own hops and barley or partnering with local farms to grow the strains they want.  Although this may sound quite pricey on the front end, the back-end savings could add up quite a lot! For example, in years when the value per bushel is high, it makes more sense to have your own hops field, even if it’s a smaller […]

Great Stout, great friends, great season

Great Stout, great friends, great season

When it comes to those of us here at West Palm Beach Brewery and Wine Vault, we all seem to have varying tastes in craft beer.  For example, Dan G. really likes Stouts and Porters, much like our writer and resident Portaholic, whereas John prefers IPAs.  While those who do not know much about craft beer would think this wasn’t much of a difference, the truth is that they are on opposite ends of the scale.  Where IPAs tend to be quite hoppy, Stouts and Porters push a stronger malt bill.  Where one tends to be a bit bitter, but […]
