Keeping everyone in my mind this afternoon in the north Bay Area. Have a few friends out there, including a poster on this board, bschlessel, who all seem to be fine. B's home saw some extensive damage as it was built in the early 1900s and a good chunk of downtown napa is toast. Silver oak in oakvi...
| Food and Drink Board|| BR Wine Tasting Group - lilwineman on 9/20/13 at 11:13 pm|
Seeing the Pinot topic here and it got me thinking, would anyone be interested in a wine tasting group in the BR area? Set a price cap on what we bring, try different wines you might've never had before or would've thought of buying. Not sure how to get this rolling but I need to "study" more for my...
| Food and Drink Board|| New buffalo trace whiskey-Stagg Jr. - lilwineman on 8/7/13 at 9:40 pm|
I'm a fan of the original and looking forward to this. Hopefully it won't be as limited as the George T Stagg but maintains a ton of complexity without sacrificing for quantity. What say you? :cheers:...

Figured since its St Paddys day I could give a small review of a couple products I recently had the privilege of tasting. For those looking for a non Jameson or bushmills today these two products were great.
Greenore: 8 year single grain whiskey, sweet sugary and caramel notes with nice clean pal...

Peppercorn Crusted a NY Strip with some green beans and mashed potatoes. Dug through my over flowing wine cabinet and completely forgot about this guy. When first released, this wine was purple to the extreme with tannins so rough...
| Food and Drink Board|| Mikkeller/Brewdog "I Hardcore You" - lilwineman on 3/30/12 at 10:52 pm|
Seriously delicious and seriously limited product. Having one at the cove right now. An actual blend of Brewdog Hardcore IPAD and Mikkeller I Beat You. For all the hopheads out there get one before they're gone. Great amount of bitterness with floral hops, pine, citrus, and a balance of caramelized ...
