Ocean Views for Summer

Ocean Views for Summer

Summertime brings with it a variety of highs and lows. The most notable highs tend to come in the form of high temperatures across the United States. While this might dismay some folks, it makes those from the snow-laden areas of the United States quite happy, as they are able to enjoy a respite from the bitter chill of the autumn and winter months. In some areas, that respite only lasts a few weeks before they are buried under a fresh round of cold weather, so the weeks they have of summer are ones carefully planned out for their enjoyment.

Wild beer is great!

We decided to take a few minutes to hunt down some of the brews that will really pop this season, matching up with the heat of the season and offering a refreshing taste without the high ABV that comes with many of the hopped-up brews of late. We found a few styles that really suit this need, one of which is the American Brett brewing style. Although we’ll be featuring several styles in this general area, we want to give each its own unique post, so first up is the American Brett, along with some of the brews you can […]

Sometimes it’s nice to sip in the dark

Sometimes it’s nice to sip in the dark

I’m sure you’re wondering what on earth we mean by “sip in the dark”. It’s not a typo. Far from it, actually, as it refers to those delicious, silky, lovely dark brews that we’ve come to love and desire over time. Whether it is an American Black Ale, Chocolate Stout, or a luscious Porter, we absolutely adore dark craft beers from all over the globe. Why a dark beer? The answer to why is not really something simple to give. Dark beer has just as much of a following as the lighter brews, yet when you ask folks why they […]

Brandlin Vineyard : A jewel in Mount Veeder

Brandlin Vineyard : A jewel in Mount Veeder

The Brandlin Story is one that begins several decades ago. In fact, it begins before most of our own grandparents were born, back in 1870, when life was very different in the United States, especially in California. California was still a very young state, with the wild land, people, and a booming mining industry that had taken the country by storm. This mining boom brought many people to the United States from many other countries, including Italy, France, Spain, and more. With them, they brought hundreds of years of knowledge and experience in winemaking that sparked the winemaking culture of […]

Moone-Tsai Wines of Napa Valley

Moone-Tsai Wines of Napa Valley

At Moone-Tsai Wines, excellence is held at a level well above that of production quantity. With limited-production wines, they are able to ensure that every bottle is crafted to perfection. This concept covers more than just their production, however, as they take the same pride and care in their vineyards and that care seems to be imbued in every bottle of their delicious premium wine. The only time that being on a Black List is a good thing We’ve all heard the phrase, Black List, before. Generally, this phrase bodes no good for those who are placed upon it, except […]
