December 4, to December 10, 2013BevX readers are very familiar with the great wines from Cornerstone Cellars. At this point we have seen five consecutive Cabernet Sauvignon vintages from Cornerstone Cellars. This year’s the duo - Cornertsone Cellars typically release their Napa Cabernet (featured here) and their Howell Mountain Cabernet simultaneously - is the best release to date.
November 27 to December 3, 2013Each year we see a lot of new products. Some good, some bad, and some just thinly veiled gimmick. When something new comes through the door under the moniker “Drink Pie” it raises an eyebrow. At least it did until we tasted it and the what’s turned into WOW!
November 20 to November 26, 2013Tio Pepe is great with Tapas pairing well with fish, shellfish, salty ham, and hard cheese. This style is finally catching on in America thanks in part to the popularity of Tapas restaurants and Spanish cuisine. It’s long overdue.
November 13 to November 19, 2013This offering from Stepping Stone is one of my favorites if not my outright favorite. If you are a fan of Cabernet Franc you need to get this wine. If you are unfamiliar with Cabernet Franc but want to experience a flawless example - get this wine!
November 6 to November 12, 2013Goose Island Brewery has earned itself a loyal following with their flavorful line-up of regulars and seasonal brews that always seem to strike the perfect balance of classical styling with a steadfast Goose Island house style accent. Over a dozen different styles are produced each year.
October 23 to October 29, 2013Established in 1988 by brothers Patrick and Daniel Conway, Great Lakes Brewing Company (GLB) became the first microbrewery in the state of Ohio and today remains one of Ohio's most award-winning and trusted brewers.
October 16 to October 22, 2013Tap 357 is a versatile spirit with mass appeal. It can simply be enjoyed on the rocks or inserted into your favorite cocktail. We really enjoy two ounces of Tap 357 with four ounces of ginger beer.
October 9 to October 15, 2013Cider has been growing in popularity in US bars, restaurants, and taverns for the better part of two decades. Its growing popularity has far more to do with a slow and steady word of mouth rather than an assertive marketing blitz. Cider simply appeals to a wide range of palates.
October 2 to October 8, 2013Glenfarclas 40 year old Single Malt Whisky was born in a world that we would scarcely recognize today. To add a further sobering bit of perspective to the entire discussion consider for a moment that most of the men that created this great Whisky are no longer with us.
