The Economy of Wine. I always end the long-form show by saying “support the booze that supports your local community” and this story really shows how big that impact can be. A report has come out that defines the economic impact of California wines. Check out that local section in your bottle shop, or go directly to the vineyard. See California’s details at the link https://wineindustryadvisor.com/2022/11/30/california-wines-pour-jobs-and-dollars-into-economy

Buy me a Beer and get merch - https://ko-fi.com/boozebuddy


Dr Disrespect, aka Guy Beahm, has a Bourbon, well had a Bourbon. The insanely popular internet gamer sold out of it shockingly fast! He had a bunch set aside for himself, friends, and as gifts that he decided to release, and it that sold out too. This was before they had even tried the collaboration of Black Steel Bourbon. The bourbon is receiving accolades from critics. To get the story so far and stay up to date, head to the link https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/gaming-legend-and-history-making-master-distiller-create-black-steel-bourbon-sell-out-in-45-minutes-301684300.html


McGregor vs Lobov, no we’re not talking about a UFC fight - though it certainly would add to the Interest. McGregor has called Lobov a rat and Lobov says McGregor shafted him.  Artem Lobov is suing Conor McGregor for millions, saying he was instrumental in launching the Proper No. 12 Whiskey brand. This could prove to be a costly fight for one of the two. Head to the ESPN link in the show notes https://www.espn.com/mma/story/_/id/35099516/artem-lobov-sues-conor-mcgregor-proper-no-twelve-whiskey-brand

Buy me a Beer and get merch - https://ko-fi.com/boozebuddy


Skrewball Eggnog is here. I mean, we’re all a little screwy around the holidays anyway, right? If you plan to join the Skrew crew and get Skrewed, know that it's not yet available everywhere, though some online retailers may have it. Details in the show notes https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/skrewball-peanut-butter-whiskey-launches-limited-edition-skrewball-eggnog-301679275.html



JD Single Malt? Yeah, Jack Daniels has released a single malt whiskey - Jack Daniel’s Twice Barreled Special Release American Single Malt Finished in Oloroso Sherry Casks. It’s hitting shelves this month for about $70 in slightly smaller than standard bottles. Details at the link in the show notes https://cheersonline.com/2022/11/14/jack-daniels-bottles-american-single-malt-whiskey/

Whip It, Tesla Gaffe, & Mulling Over Wine

Buy me a Beer and get merch - https://ko-fi.com/boozebuddy


Whip It - with Cardi B’s Whipshots. In September of 2021 Whipshots were announced to the world, they wouldn’t come on to the market until December. However, by November the product partnership between Cardi B and Starco Brands was already touting a High Commendation in the Best New Product category. They moved a million cans of the stuff in less than a year. That announcement comes with a new one - Peppermint. Get whipped at the link https://www.thespiritsbusiness.com/2022/11/cardi-b-creates-whipshots-peppermint/


Tesla Gaffe?! Well it’s almost unspeakable to think that Elon Musk and company could jump before thinking - but it sure seems like they did. Tesla’s tequila glasses, meant to be paired with their lightning bolt-shaped tequila bottle (which is cool) and has a base that looks to be the same. Problem is, the glasses don’t bring the aromas and flavors out and just seem to dull the entire experience for a pretty penny too. Hit the link for more on yet another gaffe. Maybe it comes with a blue checkmark? https://jalopnik.com/tesla-tequila-sipping-glasses-bad-design-ruin-tequila-1849784381

Mulling Over Wine? Wonder no more - because I have the recommendations for the cold weather favorite. Thankfully the wines are all within the perfect budget range of $10 - $21, so the Cab Sav’s, Red blends, and Zinfandel won’t set you too far back.. Get the recommendations for the best wine choices at the link https://vinepair.com/articles/best-wines-for-mulled-wine/

Beer Squared, Hikes Worth Brewing, & Impeccable Rums

Buy me a Beer and get merch - https://ko-fi.com/boozebuddy


Beer Squared, with Squarekeg - who up until recently probably felt a bit like a square keg in a round hole. The portable pressurized keg hold two growlers' worth of beer - that’s 128 ounces or 8 pints, for those counting. Check out the product in detail at https://thesquarekeg.com/products/squareone%C2%AE-mini-keg-powder-coat-finish


Hikes Worth Brewing! Because each of these hikes does have something brewing, they all end at or near a brewery or taproom, and all the hikes are family-friendly. You should definitely check out the rest in the show notes and plan a trip, Dad https://www.fatherly.com/life/best-family-hikes-near-breweries

Impeccable Rums! When you look at the review sites and ‘top recommended’ type sites, you’ll find that certain names just keep coming up again, and again, and again. Maybe they’re on to something! They cover a bit of territory - from sippers to cocktail mixers. The most expensive one I found, was only about $50! Loads of different flavors that each of these bring the drinker - so check them out next time you need rum https://studyfinds.org/best-rum/

007 Dances for Vodka, VT Best Beer State, & Proper Tequila Glass

Buy me a Beer and get merch - https://ko-fi.com/boozebuddy


007 Dances for Vodka. With James Bond actor Daniel Craig as the star and Taika Waititi as the director teamed up for the short film (aka music video slash commercial) promoting Belvedere Vodka. The campaign had a sneak peek here in the US a few days ago, and it will be revealed in England on November 21. Of course, if you have a VPN and can change the country you’re in, you can watch the video for yourself in advance. Link to the video is at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ekESZIn4y18


VT Best Beer State? Vermont has a lot to offer, it’s why I live here. We have the sixth great lake, all kinds of outdoor activities, fall foliage that brings people - but more and more the beer is what is bringing people here and keeps them coming back. Vermont has some great beers - and 8 of them made it into an article that celebrates the small state and the wide selection of amazing beer. Check the list out in the show notes https://uproxx.com/life/best-craft-beer-vermont/

Proper Tequila Glass is not a shot glass. As I mentioned in a recent video about beer glasses, a properly shaped glass can change the experience. For tequila and mezcal too, if you want to get the flavors and aromas - a flute glass is what you want to use - according to Patrón. Try it out, and let me know what you think. Link to the story in the show notes. https://www.tastingtable.com/1090957/you-need-a-flute-glass-if-you-want-to-properly-taste-tequila/
