I just told you yesterday how the Detroit Free Press called 2022 the year of the lager and it’s looking like there might be some truth to lager having a moment this year. It’s a trend that's bucking the hazy-bois, adjuncts, and barrel-aged beers we’ve come to see regularly and present craft beer fans a crisp, clean, and apparently crushable beverage option. While they name-drop cult beers like Heady Topper, I’m not yet seeing people driving hundreds of miles to pick them up… yet. But - could we see that happen soon? Maybe. Or maybe people are just hungry for a great locally made beer that drinks well - wherever they are. Though people are now referring to them as crispy-bois https://vinepair.com/articles/lager-focused-breweries/

The frigid northeast temps are being avoided by some - but not by all. Including grapes! In fact, it seems a labor of love for the Lane Family in South Hero Vermont. Snow Farm Vineyard makes what are known as ice wine. It’s a unique wine that is made with grapes that are left on the vine -- usually until December as it needs cold temperatures. In fact, if it’s too warm the grapes will rot - so the colder the better! It’s also much sweeter than typical wine.
