Do you know your ABCs?

Do you know your ABCs?

If you’re looking for a vineyard that has ranked as high as 3rd out of over 100 vineyards in the United States, then Au Bon Climat, affectionately known as ABC, is certainly one you will want to visit. Since 1982 they have been creating wines that possess huge character and owe their distinctive personalities to the winemaker, Jim Clendenen. Jim takes his wines to an even higher plateau with his small-batch artisan wines that he has been creating as well. ABC is the place to be Besides having some of the most lovely Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in the Santa […]

No match for Small Batch

No match for Small Batch

We love craft beer.  We love it enough that we travel all over the United States to try new brews and are working on opening our own craft brewery and wine vault here in South Florida in October.  That being said, there are some craft brews that we simply cannot stand to miss.  These are the small batch brews that each craft brewery comes up with on a whim.  The brews that, although they are amazing, are kept to those small-batch amounts and can be missed in the blink of an eye. There really is no match for small batch […]

Why is craft beer more popular than commercial brews?

Why is craft beer more popular than commercial brews?

Beer is the third most popular choice for events and nearly 60% of the world’s population admit to truly enjoying the adventure of finding new brews to try. There are several reasons that people choose craft beer over other brews, including the unique taste and wide variety of options on the market. Add to that the myriad experiences that we’ve all encountered while checking out new craft brewery taprooms and you’ve got a winning ticket because craft beer has no match. Why choose craft over commercial? While commercially brewed beer is always an option, the craft brewing industry has provided […]

Wine prices and value, is the price tag the only way to judge the quality?

Wine prices and value, is the price tag the only way to judge the quality?

With so many second label wines turning heads in recent years, we’ve started to wonder whether there is a shift in the trend where discernment is concerned.  Where once the wine prices often foretold the quality of the wine, now we have second labels that are showing their quality to be equal to that of the vintages of old.  While this may seem a bit odd, it is not truly that surprising when you consider the dedication and innovation that has filled the winemaking industry. The one thing that has held true throughout centuries of time is that vintners are […]

Gearing up for October with hard work

Gearing up for October with hard work

We’ve spent months now working hard to get ready for the opening of West Palm Beach Brewery and Wine Vault later this year in October.  Many of you may remember that we wanted to open earlier this year, however, we were waylaid by delays with our permits for construction which had everyone, including us, frustrated.  The great news is that those permits came through and we’ve come up with even greater ideas while we’ve been working! For example, how about a wood burning brick oven?  Tuscan food?  Perhaps a wine vault that houses not just a few bottles, but thousands? […]

Napa Valley’s Hess Winery is lovely

Napa Valley’s Hess Winery is lovely

When we heard the words The Hess Collection, we were unsure if the person was referring to an art collection or not.  However, when we asked for clarification, we were delighted to find that it referred to one of the best wineries in Napa Valley as well!  Much like our beloved craft brewing industry, this winery has brought together outstanding art and amazing premium wines. What is so special about Hess Winery? Hess Winery possesses a comfortable atmosphere that speaks of wine, love, and an era long passed that is being held onto tightly.  From the lovely vine-covered walls of […]

Time for Reflection: What do you think about while enjoying a great brew?

Time for Reflection: What do you think about while enjoying a great brew?

We all have that one go-to brew that we grab when we want to sit and reflect on our day, week, month, or even our entire life. Choosing a brew for this occasion just comes naturally, as we don’t really consider it a choice, it’s automatic. However, what makes us curious is wondering what others are thinking about when they grab that go-to craft beer and sit down in silence. The important things in life The craft brewing industry has spawned an amazing community of enthusiasts and we each have our own special tastes, desires, and worries. One thing that […]

A little bit of wine knowledge can make all of the difference

Varietals are wines produced from a single grape and they are considered classics with a unique flavor. There are some vital elements that should be taken into account anytime you consume wine and it’s necessary you have this knowledge for your benefit.  This helps to understand the nature of the wine.  The more you know about the basics, the more likely you are to be able to select a wine that truly suits you or your event.  Below we have outlined a few important facts that you will need to remember.

A visit into the past can still be a learning experience

A visit into the past can still be a learning experience

We tend to avoid commercial brewing, as we’re very independent oriented.  However, that does not stop us from appreciating some of the breweries of old that may no longer be around.  Those who’ve been bought up by larger corporations, moved to a new region, and the old brewery works left behind as a memory of great days gone by.  That is exactly the case with the Heineken Brewery of old. Heineken?  Seriously? Ok, so not everyone was, or is, fond of the brew.  However, the history is one that is worth mention, as is the case with many breweries outside […]

Boston Beer: Because sometimes we just do it

Boston Beer: Because sometimes we just do it

It’s not often we talk about breweries that have gone towards the commercial end of the pond, but they are out there and they do deserve credit for some of the honestly good brews they’ve created.  Sure, we’re independent craft beer enthusiasts, but that does not mean we’re not going to try a good beer no matter where it comes from.  With that in mind, we want to give a nod to Boston Beer Company, the creators of Samuel Adams beer. Wait, what, really? Indeed, we’re serious.  Yes, we realize that Boston Beer has climbed to the edge of commercial […]
