Beer Tasting 10/3/18

Why do a taste test of three pairs of beers to see what the differences between them are and which we like better?

1. Because sometimes what's different in the difference is no difference, and yet sometimes it's different than that.

2. Because curiosity killed the cat, but it was worth it to be able to say, "I like it like that!"

3. Because our culture programs us to revere competition and combat from an early age.

4. Because four pairs of beer would be a lot.

5. Because it'll be fun, and they're good!

Friday Night Wine Tasting 8/31/18 - The Rhône Diaspora!

This Friday - the Rhone diaspora!  The grapes associated with the Rhône valley in southern France are enormously influential and have been planted all over the world.  We will be tasting some examples of some of the classic varietals of the Rhône (Syrah, Grenache, etc) from various non-Rhône regions.  From neighboring Minervois to Tuscany, California, and beyond.  This week we are sourcing the wines from our hometown importer: Williams Corner Wine.  Join us!!
