  • Barrel to Bottle: Glassware and Ice
    Barrel to Bottle: Glassware and Ice
    Glassware. It's an essential part of the drinking experience, but there are so many options in wine, spirits and beer. Stemmed or stemless? Big bowl or small? Shaker pint or tulip? And what about ice? Big cube, small cube, sphere? Filtered water or tap? The Barrel to Bottle crew is here to help you sort through this madness and also prove that despite all the pretension it really does make a difference in how your drink tastes. Throughout the episode Pat will also be measuring how fast (or slow) the ice cubes are melting into the drinks with his fancy/ridiculous laser thermometer.

  • Barrel to Bottle: Vermouths and Manhattans
    Barrel to Bottle: Vermouths and Manhattans
    What is vermouth? Where does it come from and why does Pat Brophy love it so much? This week, the Barrel to Bottle Crew will be sampling through an array of vermouths, while Pat tries to find one that will pry Greg away from his beloved Cocchi di Torino. After that, we will take all those vermouths, combine then with a variety of bitters and see who can craft the best Manhattan. Will it be The Greghattan? El Broph? The Rogehattan?
