It’s hard to go to a place you don’t know, do something you’ve never done before, and not feel embarrassed. That’s why it’s great that Food & Wine put together a simple article on “How to Behave at a Winery, according to the Professionals”. I have a couple of tips to add too https://www.foodandwine.com/fwpro/winery-etiquette

Lagunitas is trying a different kind of drink - spiked teas. Disorderly TeaHouse will come in 2 flavors and sizes https://www.pressdemocrat.com/article/north-bay/lagunitas-brewing-co-goes-beyond-beer-with-a-spiked-tea-drink/

3/16/22 - DIY Green Beer, Stone vs MillerCoors, & The Godfather #greenbeer saintpatricksday #Stonebrewing #Millercoors #lawsuit #numberone #number1 #wine #topwine #godfather #francisfordcoppola

It’s true, you can absolutely make your beer green. Personally - I’d rather drink a stout. Here’s the thing though - if you really want a green beer - don’t add a drop of green food coloring to it (maybe gold edible glitter?) or a green soda? Check out https://greenriversoda.com/chicago/ and Sprecher Brewing’s Instagram if you want to see what one looks like https://www.tiktok.com/@sprecherbrewery/video/7073206726756994346 If green cocktails are your thing, how about a green margarita? https://twitter.com/emunn/status/1502010477123190787

The case is underway and Stone Brewing is hashing it out with MillerCoors in the Stone vs Keystone Light fight. Greg Koch’s response? https://www.courthousenews.com/stone-brewing-co-founder-calls-millercoors-rebrand-a-horror-for-craft-brewer/

Someone must owe this guy some favors, because the guy behind the Godfather franchise of movies, Francis Ford Coppola is rules this list! https://www.eatthis.com/news-most-popular-wine-brands-america/

3/12/22 - The Boozebuddy Update: Another Round with Andy James & Troy Millette #TroyMillette #SXSW #AndyJames #OwlStars #Musicians #MusicFest #MusicFestival #LiveMusicians #BarTalk #Beerswithfriends

Today's guests are Troy Millette of Troy Millette and the Fire Below and Andy James of The Owl Stars


Find Troy Millette here: https://troymillettemusic.com/

Find Andy James here: https://theowlstars.com/

Troy is someone who became part of my circle a few years back when he showed up with a guitar at a fire pit. I've been to multiple performances by Troy and will continue to seek him out. He's come quite a long way since then and his Travels take him to SXSW Festival On March 14th and 15th. See his tour dates at his website to learn more.

Andy is someone I was introduced to when he was a member of a group called Measured Methods with Bethany and Eric (who I hope will join me at some point). That groups worked with many breweries in Vermont to help them market themselves and better define their brand. I regularly show up to see him play with the Owl Stars, solo or sitting in with other musicians.

3/7/22 - Stoli isn't Russian Vodka, Canadian Breweries Unite & Who Should Sell Beer & Wine? #russianvodka #USvodka #latvia #stoli #Slovakian #Canada #CanadianBeer #Ontario #Maryland #beerlaws #grocers

Stoli wants you to know they aren’t Russian, they're Latvian. Don't pour them out, unless it's into your glass - https://www.cnn.com/2022/03/05/business/stoli-vodka-rebrand-russia/index.html

An agreement four months ago combines two Canadian breweries (with only 99.99% of shareholder votes approving) - https://steamwhistle.ca/blog/shareholders-vote-yes/

Will Liquor stores or grocers sell Beer & Wine in Maryland?  Who will win and who will lose? https://www.wbaltv.com/article/mixed-reaction-over-legislation-allowing-beer-wine-in-grocery-stores/39328832

Girl Scout Cookies and beer pairings coming out very soon from Pints and Panels https://twitter.com/pintsandpanels 

While you wait, see what Invisible Man Brewing is doing. They can give you a leg up on pairings. https://triblive.com/local/westmoreland/invisible-man-brewing-secures-enough-girl-scout-cookies-to-host-brew-pairing-event/

A  “molecular beverage printer” that can assemble almost anything from iced coffee, fruity beverages, and even cocktails? I’m doubtful, but hopeful. https://www.engadget.com/cana-one-molecular-drinks-printer-204738817.html

The search for a new vodka is reaching into some interesting places. Baltimore, known for seasonings, may now be known for its unique vodka. They even have recipes! https://www.baltimoresun.com/food-drink/bs-fo-old-bay-vodka-release-20220303-ft3i7urzdfaljcuzxdjmdtamze-story.html

3/1/22 - Demon & trash fighting beer, You bought a hole?, & 6 Whiskeys that won't fail #FooFighters #Studio666 #billions #wine #winecellar #whiskey #bestwhiskey #recyclable #sustainable

It's the beginning of my favorite month of the year!

Brought to you by The Real Voice - Mel Allen. Providing voice over for commercials, podcasts, explainer videos, and more. Samples and demos at https://therealvoice.com

Coors Light is in the new for two reasons - they’re making Coors Almighty Light with holy water as a collaboration with he Foo Fighters and the upcoming Studio 666 horror-comedy movie. Whether it is an effective demon deterrent remains to be seen - but we do know that Coors Light is making an investment in deterring some single use plastics! Molson Coors is making an $85 million investment in transitioning from plastic rings to fully recyclable and sustainable cardboard wrap carriers later this year. It will have a significant impact by removing 1.7 million pounds of plastic waste annually. Coors Light will be leading the way, with other brands to follow. Expect the entire North American portfolio to transition by 2025. For the Holy Water story click https://mybeerbuzz.blogspot.com/2022/02/coors-foo-fighters-team-up-for-coors.html and for the cardboard ring story click https://www.pennlive.com/business/2022/03/coors-light-says-it-will-eliminate-six-pack-plastic-rings-by-end-of-the-year.html

What would your friends say if you bought a 30 acre hole in the ground? They might think you’ve gone mad or at least losing a bit of touch with reality - but Nigel Jagger did just that 35 years ago and proved his critics wrong. He’s turning that hole, an abandoned war bunker, into a massive wine cellar that now holds $2 Billion worth of wine. It maintains a consistent temp of 57 F and 80 percent humidity. Conveniently, that’s also good conditions for Formula 1 racing tires, which were also stored there in the past. I doubt I’ll ever have anything currently stored in there - like the case of 1945 Chateau Coeval Blanc wine valued at $150,000 or the $2 Million bottle of whiskey. Heck - I wouldn’t even want to be in there with those prices - I’m too afraid I’d drop something. For more https://www.insidehook.com/article/booze/octavian-vaults-wine-bunker

Speaking of Whiskey though - it can be hard to choose a good bottle, and price isn’t always an effective way of determining which one is the best (but every so often who among us doesn’t drop some coin on something special?) According to some experts - there are six bottles you can’’t really go wrong with - and since it’s the Food Network they probably know what they’re talking about. One of them was surprising, as it’s an $89 bottle of Hillock Solar from NY, but it was good to see the affordable Elijah Craig Small Batch on there and a great (dare I say cheap) whiskey for mixed drinks Wild Turkey 101. Get the rest here https://www.foodnetwork.com/how-to/packages/shopping/articles/best-bourbon

Next Time: I might have something coming up with some musicians, I’ll keep you informed!
