BOOZE NEWS: No Regrets Beer, Cheap or Genius, & Rangers Idiot Owner

No Regrets Beer, as we head toward the end of Dry January it’s obvious that things are very different this year than in years past. If you’re having trouble finding a good NA Beer, then look no further - several options are in this article. Get the list of 12 NA beers here https://www.esquire.com/food-drink/drinks/g42640758/best-nonalcoholic-beers/


Dogfish Head Cheap is making some news with a recent decision. So is Dogfish Head Cheap, or Genius?

Rangers Idiot Owner James Nolan has responded to the NY State Liquor Authority by saying he’s not going to serve alcohol at an upcoming game.

BOOZE NEWS: Criminally Light, Beginners Bourbon, & Vintage Natty

Criminally Light Wine is here from 19 crimes. Have you tried the Lighter wine options yet? Would Martha’s Chard (aka Chardonnay) might make you want to dip into the ‘less alcohol’ trend that we’re seeing parallel to the no alcohol beverages? Martha Stewart wants you to consider her when you’re looking to avoid overindulging and the Lighter Chardonney delivers 8.5% ABV and, for those keeping track, 80 calories for each glass. Get more at the link https://www.winebusiness.com/news/article/266218


Vintage Natty is back. Natural Light is going for a complete rebrand of the cans, packaging, and advertising campaigns that will all use the look. For those who think this is a bit too familiar, well that’s because In 2021 and 2022, Natty launched a limited release of the vintage-inspired cans in select markets.

BOOZE NEWS: Oh Canada, Double Barrel Agave, & Grammy’s Goosed Again

Oh Canada, the country just north of us pulled the rug out from under a lot of people and sent the world into a tizzy with a recent big change in advice for drinkers. There is no magic number, and the US, Australia, and the UK all differ, but the World Health Organization recently said there’s no safe amount, which Canada seems to suddenly agree with, to the shock of.. well, everyone. Check the link for more https://www.thespiritsbusiness.com/2023/01/canadian-drinking-advice-at-odds-with-world/


Double Barrel Agave has arrived. For Espanita Tequila, launched in 2017, it seems there will be more releases of Double Barrels, as they kick off their limited edition reposado collection with Espanita Double Barrel Reposado Tequila. The tequila is aged and matured in American white oak casks and then moved on to finish in Kentucky inside Bourbon barrels.

BOOZE NEWS: Runless Bourbon, Home Distilling, & Portable Cocktail Station

A Bourbon Contest! To help Celebrate 8 million barrels, Buffalo Trace is hosting a run, with a giveaway, and a big positive catch - it doesn’t seem to require any actual running (unless I missed it in the rules). The prize includes Airfare, Two nights in Kentucky, an $800 gift card at Buffalo Trace, and $500 for whatever else you need, plus car service. The signup already started and runs through February 18th. So run to this link and sign up! https://www.willrunforbuffalotracebourbon.com/


Home Distilling is growing. Ohio is considering a bill to allow each individual in a home to make 200 gallons of personal distilled booze each year without a permit. Now, it’s important to realize that federally, it’s still illegal to distill alcohol for drinking. It makes you a bootlegger facing potentially dozens of charges. To get more, and maybe share with your lawmakers, head to the link https://vinepair.com/booze-news/ohio-law-home-distilling/

Black and Decker have made their cocktail station portable. The upcoming portable Bev Black + Decker Cordless Cocktail Maker lets you take the maker and capsules on the road with your battery pack. There's even a light show they call “enhanced party mode” that floods the bottles with colored lights. The 20 Volt battery pack is good for about 250 drinks.

In Today's Podcast Sun Ice pouch-style RTD cocktails are showing tremendous growth, Four Roses collabs with OSMO Salt for Valentine's Day Drinks, & Miller Lite and Coors Light duke it out for the Super Bowl!


Sun ICE RTDs launched in 2021 and they’ve been riding the wave of RTDs since, with over 25,000 cases sold. The flexible packs their products are in set them apart and, for some who grew up with beverages in a pouch, it feels a bit retro. The company is part of the same group that created sun shots, so you can take those shots on the go. Distribution will cover at least 1/3 of the US by the end of 2023 with nationwide coverage expected in 2024. https://www.flexpackmag.com/articles/92339-exclusive-q-and-a-with-sunice-co-founder-erik-weller



Four Roses is getting Salty, but not with age, for love (aww). The Distillery has teamed up with OSMO Salt to create an infused salt for our next holiday, Valentine's Day. The Limited edition Osmo Toasted Vanilla Bourbon Salt can be added to the rim of your glass as it’s made just for cocktails featuring Four Roses Small Batch. Their site comes complete with recipes and tips for making a Valentine's Day drink you won’t forget.

BOOZE NEWS: Absolut Zero, Stone Fan Favorites, & Jameson Vibing

Absolut Zero is closer than you think, at least when we’re talking about the vodka. They predict they’ll be carbon neutral by 2030 and have pending B-corp status. Absolut already boasts 98% fewer emissions from their distillery and their bottle has 60% recycled glass, so you can feel pretty good about the bottle, what’s inside, and where it’s made. This only scratches the surface, so get more at the link https://www.thespiritsbusiness.com/2023/01/absolut-to-be-carbon-neutral-by-2030/


Stone Fan Favorites are bringing back some old fans, and likely making new ones. This time, it’s Ruination IPA’s chance to return. Has your favorite Stone beer made a comeback yet? The beer that clocks in at 8.2%, and was canceled in 2015, is available for a limited time. More at the link https://thefullpint.com/beer-news/stone-brewing-fan-favorite-ruination-ipa-returns/

Jameson is Vibing and just wants people to take it easy. Their new campaign  ‘Jameson. Easy Does It’ encourages people to drink in moderation, and uses humor from comedian Aisling Bea to deliver the point that no one needs to feel pressured or stressed to drink in whatever way makes them comfortable. The campaign is out now in Europe and will go global later this year, so get a sneak peek at the link https://www.thespiritsbusiness.com/2023/01/jameson-says-easy-does-it-in-new-campaign/

BOOZE NEWS: Scottish Faux Pas, Cointreau Competition, & Roxie NA Cocktails

The Scottish Government just made pretty much anyone in the alcohol industry really upset. You won’t believe why! This is such an epic fail, it’s laughable. For those not aware yet - The Scottish government just said “Without branding and other marketing strategies, alcohol products in each beverage sub-sector are essentially variations of the same thing”. They doubled down on that ignorant statement with another show of idiotic behavior - the report suggests the prohibition of selling or distributing alcohol-branded merchandise. Check out more on the #EpicFail at the link https://www.thespiritsbusiness.com/2023/01/scottish-government-angers-whisky-trade/

Cointreau is celebrating 75 years of the Margarita with its third year of their Cointreau Margarita Challenge! Do you have a great margarita recipe to share? If so - let me know, put it in the comments, or submit it to Cointreau and see if you win! The challenge welcomes bartenders around the world to throw in their attempt to create the best Margarita on earth. Brush up on your recipe and then head to the link to find out more, and submit your unique recipe by January 31st at the link https://www.cointreau.com/margaritachallenge

Roxie is a new zero-proof cocktail from Molson Coors, and I’m sharing it with you as part of my continued ‘toe dip’ into Dry January. Roxie is being sold exclusively online. Roxie comes in passionfruit, mango and pineapple flavors, but it’s definitely not juice and doesn’t taste like it either. Check out more at the link https://www.cnn.com/2023/01/10/business/molson-coors-roxie-zero-proof-cocktail-launch/index.html

BOOZE NEWS: Go Lightly, Agave Alternative, & Tom Hanks Drink

Go Lightly, with some alternatives for January (or any time of year) - beverages that don’t hit as hard, but don’t sacrifice flavor. From lighter ABV Light wines, Carb free beers that also hit around 4%, Baileys Light (at about 16%), lighter vodkas, and even martinis that don’t have quite the kick. The availability and the growth in Dry January, and now a Wet or Damp January, means you have options if you want them. Check out the link https://www.refinery29.com/en-us/low-alcohol-drink-beverages


There’s an Agave Alternative, and it’s been harvested already for years in some places. Did you know about sotol in tequila and mezcal? Unlike Agave, which is killed when it’s harvested, the sotol base and root are left behind to regrow. That means more mezcal and tequila, which gets more popular each year. Check the link for more. https://modernfarmer.com/2023/01/sotol/

Tom Hanks’ Drink is not what it sounds like. The name sounds like an illicit drug, but it’s a combination of Diet Coke and Champagne. So he calls it Diet Cokagne that’s C-O-K-A-G-N-E. Have you tried mixing the two together? Find out more on this one at the link https://www.thekitchn.com/tom-hanks-diet-coke-champagne-cocktail-23496781

BOOZE NEWS: Dry Shifts To Wet, Beer on Fire, & Very Good Budget Wine

Dry Shifts To Wet - It seems that dry January is great with long-lasting health benefits. Except when that doesn’t happen. I still am going to say I recommend trying it, even part of the time. Has it worked for you if you’ve tried it?  A study has recently shown that enforced abstinence led to a very wet February.  So what does this tell us, do Dry January because you choose to and want to - don’t force it. Get more at the link https://www.thespiritsbusiness.com/2023/01/dry-january-leads-to-increased-drinking/


Beer on Fire! Well, it’s called beer anyway, which might surprise you. When you last had a drink of fireball did you consider it beer? Let me clarify - there are two types of Fireball - the whiskey version and the malt beverage called "Fireball Cinnamon". Fireball Cinnamon is in places like supermarkets, gas stations, and other retailers Get more on the story at the link https://vinepair.com/articles/fireball-top-50-beer-brand/

Visit greenmountainpayments.com or posandzero.com today!



Very Good Budget Wine doesn’t have to cost much and here’s a list of wines that don’t go over my favorite cutoff price of $25, and I usually don’t spend much less than $15. One is from the Finger Lakes region of New York that I recently mentioned. Check out the whole list at the link https://www.winemag.com/2023/01/11/best-budget-american-wine/

BOOZE NEWS: Whiskey Scammers, Dark Cans, & The Overtaker

Whiskey Scammers, yeah, people are scamming others out of everything these days and, with the investments people are making in whiskey (and cryptocurrency’s fall) it’s no surprise the scams have moved on to something as desirable as, say, Pappy Van Winkle. Be careful. The break down how some of the scams happen at the link. https://www.pastemagazine.com/drink/whiskey/twitter-bourbon-scams-scambaiting-lotteries-elon-musk/

BOOZE NEWS: Hot Toddy Day, Hack or Whack, & Best-Selling Whiskeys

Happy Hot Toddy Day! If you want a simple Hot Toddy to make today, Fishers Island Lemonade is a ready-to-drink beverage that is also ready-to-Toddy. I’ll provide a link to the YouTube video that shows you how to make it right from the source here https://youtu.be/p8PrR6_eCI0. So, about that history - is it from England, India (where it’s called a “Taddy”), or possibly even Ireland? While I sip, do some internet sleuthing at the link https://www.tastingtable.com/1150064/the-disputed-origin-of-the-hot-toddy/


Hack or Whack? Sometimes when you hear of a “life hack”, it's either helpful or a solid no. I think this one is a no for me, but you decide. Would you use this hack? The hack is to pre-freeze your beer into ice cubes, and then add the frozen ice cubes to your beer when you kneed to keep it cold.  I think this one works for grapes (so your wine isn’t watered down) or iced coffee which has a strong enough flavor, but not in my beer, thanks. Click the link for more. https://www.thedailymeal.com/1154712/the-ice-cube-hack-that-keeps-beer-cold-without-watering-it-down/ and an affiliate link to a beer chiller https://amzn.to/3irLNhH

Also, check the link for top trending whiskeys and how they got the numbers. https://www.gobourbon.com/top-10-best-selling-american-whiskey-brands-of-2022-by-drinks-international/

BOOZE NEWS: Rising NY Wines, Lager Has Arrived, & Brandy Time

New York Wines are rising. The Northeastern US has some great land, and the seasons seem to bestow a tremendous agricultural palette here. Vintners have been tapping into that and settling in to make quality wines like Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Malbec, Rieslings, and Chardonnay among the styles you’ll find. Discover some of that potential at the link https://www.decanter.com/wine/the-rise-of-new-york-state-wine-492044/


Lager Has Arrived! Are you ready for it? For years I kept hearing that lager was coming. Now, though, it feels different. I started seeing more and different lagers popping onto taproom lists during the summer. Dark lagers replaced Märzen and sat alongside fall beers, and breweries sending out their beer calendars have regular lager releases scheduled. Still, some are doing it better than others, find out who and help spread the Gospel of Lager at the link https://www.craftbeer.com/full-pour/spreading-the-gospel-of-lager

Brandy Time! In the United States, it used to be known as Applejack. Have you tried Applejack? And no I don’t mean Apple Pie Moonshine (though it’s great too). As distillers have risen and learned how to make it even better - the informal name has been dropped, and new ingredients are making their way into the mix. Peach, Watermelon, Smoked Ham, Pear, and even Douglas Fir - we have distillers from all over who are making some interesting and delicious-sounding blends. Hit the link for the list. https://www.winemag.com/2022/12/28/american-brandy/
