A Visit From Olivier Krug

Tagged:

Olivier Krug’s presentation resonated with me early when he spoke of pairing my two passions, music and wine. “Music is important to Krug” he said, “The experience is about what you feel”. I’ve always thought of my love of wine and my love of music separately, but it was enlightening to hear him speak passionately about intertwining both. Music proved an especially apt metaphor as he presented his four wines. The first three were all top notch wines that any Champagne house could claim as a tete de cuvee. But not Krug, whose non-vintage Grand Cuvee enjoys pride of place. Compared to the first three, the Grand Cuvee is a harmonious whole, with the other three sounding a strong note.

Celebrating National Saison Day!

Tagged:

Of all the beer styles brewed toady, few are open to as much interpretation as the saison. Saisons are highly carbonated and refreshing pale ales that were originally brewed by Belgian farmers in order to entice seasonal farmhands or “saisonniers” to sign on for summer work. Yeast plays a big role in their flavor profile and while most are brewed with strains that produce highly aromatic and spicy flavors, some also incorporate wild yeast strains such as Brettanomyces which can impart some earthy funk. So raise a toast to this classic style with one of these refreshing favorites on #NationalSaisonDay!

Cigar Team Hits the Road: Nicaragua

Tagged:

Our Cigar team recently traveled to Nicaragua for an unforgettable cigar experience with Drew Estates. Our trip started with true Nicaraguan food, which we finished with a Liga Pravada no.9. The roads in Nicaragua are buzzing with car horns, pedestrians and motorcycles. The Drew family shared Ligas, Naturals, Kuba kubas, and Undercrowns on the bumpy ride through mountainous terrains.

Fresh Catches from Ballast Point Brewing Company

Ballast Point Brewing Company

 

Ballast Point Sea Rose

Ballast Point Sea Rose is a lively new wheat ale that delivers remarkably natural cherry flavor. The finish is pleasantly tart, but not puckering and is accented by hints of sweet baking spice. If you’re looking for something unique and sessionable, this one is a keeper. Yet another delicious fruit beer from

 

Ballast Point Bonito Blonde

California loves their blondes, and the latest from Ballast Point is a real beauty. A pronounced malty aroma is complemented by a subtle minerality; giving way to a refreshingly smooth body and a satisfying finish. While not quite as sweet, Bonito’s fruity yeastiness and soft malty mouthfeel reminded us of a much requested yet frustratingly unavailable farmhouse ale from Wisconsin.
