These new scotches from Glenmorangie are the perfect accompaniment for your evening if you, like us, want nothing more than to hibernate until June. Lasanta is a 12-year finished in Oloroso and PX sherry casks for warm butterscotchy, nutty, spicy notes. Quinta Ruban was finished in ruby port casks for a chocolate and candied orange […]
Karaoke Showdown is the new collaboration brew from Yellow Dog and Steel & Oak. Hoppy Doppelbock is a pretty unique style, and at 8.1% ABV it’s the perfect beer for those of us who need a little liquid courage before taking the stage for a very unique rendition of Total Eclipse of the Heart.
Look what is slowly waking from its wintry slumber: Shazoo! An imperial milk stout from Gigantic Brewing. The added lactose helps round out the texture and soften things up a tad in general. Prominent notes of coffee, chocolate and caramel throughout. Cheers!
If you enjoyed the Salted Caramel Milk Stout from Breakside Brewing, you’re going to love this one! Ageing in Bourbon barrels makes everything better, including beer. Especially dark beer. Big notes of vanilla, caramel and chocolate mix with rich bourbon flavors and a rich mouthfeel. It is dinner and dessert all in one.
This grape is a real California classic. It might not originate there, but it has taken a real liking to the climate. This wine from Hayes Ranch invites you with aromatics of vanilla and brown sugar. On the palate you will notice soft oak, green apple and a dash of cinnamon. All in all this […]
Has the winter left you with a sour taste in your mouth? All that snow we had! That’s not the West Coast we know. Try washing it all away with this West Coast sour from Persephone Brewing. It is tart and refreshing with a nice hop character. That’s more like it!
Here are some fruity and tart offerings from Timmermans. It has been a quite a while since we have seen any new Belgian Lambics. Enjoy!
If you are looking for a crisp lager, look no further! Since it is made by Deschutes, it gets a Pacific Northwest treatment. It is dry hopped with Tettnang Mandarina hops (also known as Mandarina Bavaria) to give it a light and citrusy twist.
This is beer of an almost legendary caliber. The people at Brouwerij De Halve Maan know how to make a thing of beauty. This Belgian quad is aged for over a year in French Armagnac barrels. It helps gives this beer its rich aroma and complex taste. You can enjoy it now or put it […]
Hey folks! A new Pilsner from Yellow Dog Brewing! Something to drink when you are suffering from hop fatigue… It is made in the German style and left unfiltered so none of the greatness gets stripped away.
