Fake moonshine; Don’t be fooled by imposters

Fake moonshine; Don’t be fooled by imposters

We’ve all heard of moonshine before and have been curious about what it tastes like.  Whether you’re part of the Dukes of Hazard generation or grew up hearing about “shiners”, you’ve likely wondered exactly what this “hush-hush” brew really is.  This leads to plenty of research because there are those around who are creating fake moonshine that is not at all what they claim it to be. Moonshine is not able to be defined as one specific type of alcohol, however, there is a specific factor to this name that is often forgotten.  Historically, “moonshine” was any alcohol made illegally to […]

Why is high ABV beer gaining attention?

Why is high ABV beer gaining attention?

After decades of beers with an ABV of approximately 5%, we’ve become quite accustomed to this low rated standard.  When brands like Corona, with just .5% higher ABV than most other brews, came onto the market regularly people were impressed.  However, they were nowhere near as impressed as they are with some of the new craft beers on the market today, which can sport an ABV of 10% and higher!  While one might say “High ABV beer is pointless, if I want a shot, I’ll take a shot”, this mentality does not really look at the bigger picture. Simply put, […]

Organic ales by Fish Tale Brewery!

Organic ales by Fish Tale Brewery!

With organic ales on the rise, we’ve decided it was high time to feature some of the great organic brews we have found so far.  One of these is Fish Tales Organic Ales.  This label is definitely one for the stockroom, especially if you have patrons who prefer to practice a vegan diet!  While we haven’t necessarily considered this eating habit ourselves (sorry folks, I like steak), we respect the choice of those who have and are happy to provide information on options for them when it comes to great craft beers. Who is behind the Fish Tale Organic Ales label? […]

Organic beer from Samuel Smith Brewery!

Organic beer from Samuel Smith Brewery!

Organic beer is becoming pretty popular as an option for craft breweries across the U.S. and in other countries as well.  With a large social shift towards clean living, organic food and drinks, and recycling/upcycling, it only makes sense that brewmasters would eventually follow suit.  After all, the main ingredients in beer are hops, barley, and yeast, all of which are produced by farms that have begun to shift to sustainable and safe practices over time.  With the entire world looking at the future, the brewing industry wisely realized that it was time to look into a niche for this […]

Bourbon barrel aging, the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly truths

Bourbon barrel aging, the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly truths

Bourbon barrel aging has become a widely known practice since the process gained a bit of notoriety through the Bourbon County Stout released by Goose Island.  While the sales of that brew were outstanding, there are a few truths about bourbon barrel aging that you may be interested in.  Whether the facts are good or bad, bourbon barrel aging is certainly here to stay.  We’re just here to tell you what we know. Bourbon barrel aging counts as recycling (or maybe upcycling)! Millions of bourbon barrels would go to waste every year if breweries weren’t willing to snap them up […]

West Palm Beach Brewery and Wine Vault one step closer to opening!

It’s been a long process for us here at West Palm Beach Brewery and Wine Vault as we’ve worked towards our proposed opening in April of this year.  From negotiating to find a space to setting everything up and even getting this blog rolling, we’ve had a lot to consider over time.  Planning to open our new craft brewery has been one heck of a process and we’re loving it! West Palm Beach Brewery and Wine Vault gets new tanks! Recently we received our new tanks and we’re thrilled!  That’s right guys, we just got our shiny tanks!  The pride […]

New craft breweries are bringing fruit to their brews and people love it!

New craft breweries are bringing fruit to their brews and people love it!

With new craft breweries and even some older breweries, bringing about a trend of fruity brews, we wonder where this could go next.  While adding fruit flavors to brews is not truly a “new” idea, it does seem to have quite a following in recent years.  And while there are many who will say “No, this is a new concept!”, we beg to differ.  Fruit infused craft brews have actually been around for centuries with flavors such as orange and lemon creeping up quite often, not to mention the range of wine inspired brews that have come and gone over time.

Seven Hills Winery is making an impact on the wine industry in Washington

Seven Hills Winery, located in Walla Walla, Washington, is gaining some pretty big praise in the wine industry.  Featured in the Daily Meal’s list of their top 101 Wineries in America, this lovely set of vineyards has certainly gained their place fairly.  With four lovely vineyards of their own, they would hardly need to outsource grapes from other vineyards, however, they do so in order to provide the best quality to every vintage. We talk often about how dedication and knowledge make a large part of the difference in the quality of the wine a vintner produces, and this is […]

Napa Valley vineyards are producing outstanding premium wines

Napa Valley vineyards are producing outstanding premium wines

Napa Valley in California is well known for producing some of the best premium wines on the market to date.  The many Napa Valley vineyards often work together, sourcing grapes from their own vineyards or from outside stock that they judge with a discernment that leaves the lay person in awe.  We often forget the hard work and dedication required to select grapes that are perfect for the many vintages we adore, such as the 2013 Dominus, which received some of the highest ratings from critics around the country. Does the size of the vineyard determine the outcome? While it […]

The women of the Pink Boots Society

The women of the Pink Boots Society

The craft brewing industry has traditionally been one mostly populated by men, or so we thought until archeologists discovered that the majority of the brewing itself was actually handled by women.  This trend shifted over time, with men taking a heavy role in the brewing industry until women started to step up as brewmasters yet again and the Pink Boots Society was formed! Pink Boots Society members are starting to show up in breweries all over One organization that is taking great steps towards helping women to become more active in the industry is the Pink Boots Society.  This group […]
