Stone Hammers Out Another Solid IPA

Tagged:

Another IPA from Stone?! Perhaps no other brewery is so inexorably linked to India Pale Ale. For the past 20 years, their aggressively unapologetic passion for hops has made the champions of the IBU and masters of this iconic style. This week we got our first taste of Ghost Hammer, a fresh new IPA featuring a unique new hop.

Two Tropical Treats from Cali

Tagged:

We’ve sung their praises before, and we’re here to do it again. From the refreshingly satisfying wild and sour ales of Bruery Terreux to the intriguingly complex and innovative beers of The Bruery, we’re always excited to taste their latest creations. This week we have two tantalizingly tropical beers. One tart, one sweet – both delicious.

Bourbon Barrel Aged Wines

Tagged:

Bourbon barrel aged wines have exploded in popularity alongside bourbon. We’re happy to offer three different takes on this up and coming style. These wines are aged in traditional oak and then finished for several months in used bourbon barrels to add complexity without the sweet bourbon notes overwhelming the wine.

Ever wonder why a certain beer tastes the way it does? Recognize a familiar flavor but can’t quite put your finger on it? This week we take a closer look at Witbier.

The Whiskey Hotline Hits the Road: Islay

Tagged:

We visited Ardbeg first, and got an incredibly in-depth tour from distillery manager Mickey Heads. Our first impression was how shockingly small the operation is, at least in comparison to their marketing budget. Ardbeg only operates a single pair of stills. To put that in perspective Glenlivet has 28 pairs.

Wine Hotline Hits the Road: Phelan Segur

Tagged:

We visited the Phelan Sugur property after an already daunting morning of tastings in the Medoc. Pauillac and St Estephe are tough on the enamel but we persisted on to Phelan Segur and arrived just before lunchtime. We maneuvered down the long drive, walked through the expansive, serene grounds and discovered our gracious hosts in their beautiful, sun-filled tasting room.
