Switzerland, oh beautiful Switzerland!

Date: Sun, Aug 19, 2012 Wine Tasting

By Greg B.  There is something supremely majestic about seeing the Alps.  Sure, Italy, France, Germany, Austria, Slovenia, Lichtenstein all have their portions of the Alps (well, Lichtenstein is nothing but Alps…), but Switzerland is arguably the most well known Alpine nation.  People have been living in this gorgeous landscape for over 150,000 years, despite [...]

Caramelized Red Onion and Mushroom Pizza with O&CO Olive Oil

Date: Wed, Aug 15, 2012 Wine Tasting

By Greg B.  Good olive oil is one of those staples in a kitchen.  Sure, one can get by with el-cheapo olive oil, but truthfully, they either provide no flavor or provide off and weird flavors.  Once you’ve tried good olive oil, there really isn’t any going back.  That lightly sweet, fruity aroma, with a [...]

Book Review: Extreme Brewing by Sam Calagione

Date: Tue, Aug 14, 2012 Wine Tasting

By Greg B.  In my spare time, when I have time to sit and read books, I continue to be something of a science nerd.  I read historical scientific literature (the complete works of, say, Charles Darwin, in their 1st editions), or historically important philosophy texts like Democracy in America by Alexis de Tocqueville.  But [...]

The Case for Beer: an Infographic

Date: Wed, Aug 1, 2012 Wine Tasting

By Greg B.  I have to say it, I’ve been wanting to make an infographic for use on this website for a long time.  But, as you all may have realized, I’ve been pretty busy with work, wedding and race training to really get a chance to write!  So when the opportunity to share an [...]

Townhouse Kitchen & Bar Review

Date: Fri, Jul 20, 2012 Wine Tasting

By Vadim K.  Walking into the restaurant, we were greeted by two lovely hostesses that pointed us directly to the bar. After receiving our first glass of cabernet sauvignon and a Blue Moon, we grabbed a seat along a narrow table. While the Blue Moon was nothing special, the beer selection on tap was quite [...]

Delicious bread from spent grains

Date: Thu, Jul 5, 2012 Wine Tasting

By Greg B.  Over the past few years, I’ve been experimenting with ways to use the spent grains from homebrewing.  Since switching to all-grain recipes, I’ve had just pound after pound of spent grains at the end of a brew day… with no real use for them.  Sure, I’ve given some away to friends to [...]
