Eisenbahn South American Pale Ale is our last remaining bottle from Beer of the Month Club's last shipment.  We drank carefully, slowly, and saved this one for last.  We won't say this one is our clear favorite, but it's a solid pale ale with an interesting story.  Eisenbahn is located in Santa Catarina, Brazil, a Belgian-style brewery in the southern tip of the country.  Eisenbahn's SAPA,...

Fisherman's IPA by Cape Ann Brewery arrived this month thanks to our friends and beer donors over at The Microbrewed Beer of the Month Club.  Fisherman's IPA pours a rich, golden amber with a thin-to-medium head that leaves light lacing as it recedes.  To the nose, this pale ale has the earthy, hoppy scent you'd expect from the style, albeit a bit on the lighter side.  Fisherman's IPA has...

Wine Wednesday: Plungerhead 2007 Old Vine Zinfandel Reviewed

Posted by

plungerhead-review
First impressions are huge.  The first thing that will strike you about Plungerhead is it's namesake, the spiral-top "cork".  Don't fret.  It offers just as good a seal as traditional corks (maybe better, it is a little hard to open).  This wine is Big.  Not for the timid wine drinker.  The deep garnet coloring foreshadows the tone of this wine.  The nose gives you Oak with a touch of...

No liquid beyond water is more storied than wine. It’s the subject of literature and art, legend and myth.  Good batches are part science: climate, grape genetics, yeast growth, water impurities and otherwise. The best wines are an almost indefinable art, an essence, feeling or quality that many try to bottle, but few ever uncork.  To celebrate those wines that have become legendary to...

  Most Expensive Cognac: To bear the name "cognac", this 300-year-old spirit must be produced from a specific blend of grapes, distilled twice in copper stills and then aged for at least two years in French oak casks-- and that's just for the cheap stuff.  The liquid is made, quite literally, from the waters of life, and some collectors have dedicated the finances of their...
