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

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 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 […]

This Family of Wines will steal your heart

This Family of Wines will steal your heart

Every vineyard has that one family of wines that truly represents their values.  Whether it is a Reserve Wine Collection that simply oozes luscious aromas or a lovely rose that piques the interest in a more delicate manner, there is something to be said for a great collection, or even single wine, that showcases an estate.  That has never been truer than it is for the Von Strasser Family of Wines. How did Von Strasser start? Von Strasser could very nearly have been a hard cider operation instead of an outstanding collection of wines.  Rudy Von Strasser chose to spend […]
