The Legendary Hatfield and McCoy Whiskey Bottle Signings

Tagged:

History’s legendary feuding families – the Hatfields and McCoys – have finally come together. What force could overcome this bitter rivalry? Their very own whiskey, of course. This is classic American whiskey in Appalachian tradition – a mashbill of corn, barley and malt, barrel aged to golden perfection and bottled at 80 proof.

 

Binny’s is excited to host the great great grandsons of Randall McCoy and Devil Anse Hatfield at Binny’s. John T Hatfield and his wife Diane, and Big Jim McCoy and his wife Tammy will all be at Binny’s, signing bottles and sharing stories.

Blister in the Sun Beer Cocktails

Tagged:

American craft brewers are famous for innovation, from blurring stylistic lines, using bold new hops or adding unique herbs, fruits and spices. Wisconsin Brewing Company’s new beer Blister in the Sun is a perfect example of this kind of ingenuity, with the bold hop profile of IPA, the creaminess of Belgian Wit and the crisp finish of lager all rolled into one exceptional brew. We had never heard of an India White Lager before, but we’re glad we discovered this one. This spirit of experimentation inspired us to craft some beer cocktails using this refreshing new brew.

Glenmorangie British Open Championship Celebration

Tagged:

There is perhaps no greater golf event than the British Open, no more memorable a venue than St. Andrews. This classic course has been the home of golf for more than 500 years. It was from this beautiful town on Scotland’s east coast that golf spread first across the United Kingdom, then across the globe. It’s here that the rules of the game are set. And it’s here where golf legends are crowned.

 

Glenmorangie is celebrating The British Open at St. Andrews in style at Binny’s Lincoln Park. Here’s your opportunity to sample selectinos from Glenmorangie and experience St. Andrews like you never thought possible.

Confessions of a Mixologist: Sangria

Tagged:

Nothing says summer like a big pitcher of sangria. The best part of mixing up sangria is that you can make it completely your own. Kiwi? Sure! Honey? Go for it! Brandy? The more the merrier. We like to mix ours with a splash of pineapple juice and Cognac. As for the wine, we like to use grenache because it adds a nice light, fruitiness to the mix. Check out the recipe below and let us know what you think!
