    Hungry For Hops? Introducing Half Acre Rumble Grumble

    Whether it’s a bone-dry West Coast IPA, a big malty DIPA or a bright juicy IPA – Half Acre consistently brews some of the best IPAs on our shelves.

  • Demo Kitchen Recipe: Burgers and Tomato Jam
    Demo Kitchen Recipe: Burgers and Tomato Jam

    Nothing says summer grilling more than burgers! Keep the following three tips (repeated in the directions below) in mind to ensure that your burgers are top notch. (1) Do NOT salt beef patties until moments before they hit your preheated gas grill or white hot charcoal grill. Salt dissolves muscle proteins, turning what would have been moist and tender burgers into something fragile and dry. (2) Decide what temperature each beef patty will be and form it accordingly with the appropriate thickness (see step three below in the Instructions). Otherwise, a slow cooked, well-done, 3/4" patty will taste leathery and unappealing. (3) Keep a squeeze water bottle ready at hand to douse any flare ups.

Stick around for the Q&A segment, when the team answers your question about where to start with old world wine.
