Behind the dragonfly wing label resides a, easy drinking, crowd friendly, vin for $8.99

Responsibly made, JP Bourgeois works with small  and medium family estates to bring you delicious wine at everyday prices.

From jp-bourgeois.com:

Bellalua is the pinnacle of all the Languedoc has to share: Passion, Know-how, and Joy for Life.  This blend of 60% Syrah and 40% Grenache boasts a magnificent pale color and aromas of violets, citrus, and peach tree flowers.  The aromatic essence of Syrah ideally mingles with the sweet fruity Grenache, which combine to create a subtle wine that will transport you to the South of France.  Enjoy it by itself or with all light fare dishes.

Every estates’ wines change from one year to another depending on the characteristics of the harvest, quality of wine making, even if is from the same producer and from the same terroir, each year’s batch is unique. Soil, weather, geology, varietals, and the style of wine making used, are all decisive yet variable factors that give each wine a unique character. I travel several times a year and visit every estate and try every wine I purchase. When you choose #besteurowines you choose the best taste and value for traditional small estate French and Spanish wines.

Left Hand Brewing | Drink Light or Dark – You Decide

Summer is here and with it comes a seasonal shift in wine and beer consumption habits.

Whether you explore the light or dark side of beer during the summer, Left Hand is a brewery that has got you covered.

When I hear “I don’t drink stout in the summer”, I ask them if they drink iced coffee.  Most people say they do which gives me the chance to offer them an excuse to drink dark beers.

Left Hand Brewing Nitro Milk Stout is a beer built for year round drinking.  Wonderfully balanced, smooth, and not hot ‘n boozy, this is a beer you can and should drink all year round.

There is no technical ‘summer stout’ style yet, but if there was, Left Hand Nitro Milk Stout would be one of the first beers I would put in that category.

Burgers, BBQ’s, relaxing at night under the stars next to a campfire… they all pair well with Left Hand Nitro Milk Stout.

If you’re looking for a refreshing beer during the a hot day, Left Hand Travelin’ Light Kolsch is a most excellent choice.

Travelin’ Light cans travel very well – beach, hiking, festivals, and it won’t dry you out like a big and boozy hop bomb.

Crispy, refreshing, Travlin’ Light Kolsch pairs well with light summer fare like fish taco’s, fresh corn salad, and grilled lemon chicken.

Pour hard, drink well! (pour the nitro stout hard, not kolsch)

Milk Stout Nitro – Super Smooth With Soft Roastiness And Mocha Flavors.

Taking America Back. Dark & delicious, America’s great milk stout will change your perception about what a stout can be. Pouring hard out of the bottle, Milk Stout Nitro cascades beautifully, building a tight, thick head like hard whipped cream. The aroma is of brown sugar and vanilla cream, with hints of roasted coffee. The pillowy head coats your upper lip and its creaminess entices your palate. Initial roasty, mocha flavors rise up, with slight hop & roast bitterness in the finish. The rest is pure bliss of milk chocolate fullness.

MELVIN IPA

You can’t always get what you want….. but sometimes you get lucky. It’s all about the right hops, at the right time. This is how Melvin Grew Up. Fruity, Intense, but not bitter like the rest of them. As long as you don’t take advantage, we think this is the hoppiest relationship you could ask for…hold my hand? ABV 7.5%
