Secrets of the Sommeliers

Secrets of the Sommeliers

I have written about the Court of Master Sommeliers a couple of times before. This time, my perspective has changed because I am on the other side. I passed the Level 1 exam! (Learn from my failure the 1st time I took it) And now I'd like nothing more than to share the details with you so you can pass too! To re-cap, there are 4 levels to the Court of Master Sommeliers, with level 1 being a mere introductory course, and level 2 establishing your official… Continue

Victory Hop Wallop - Where's the Malt?

I reviewed the Hop Wallop recently and while I did enjoy it, I was a little disappointed by its lack of balance.  Anyhow, here's the review:

Berghoff - Winter Ale

Full review can be found here:


This brew from a small brewer in Monroe, WI does not always have the most sterling reputation.  However, this bottle was a very nice surprise!  I'd buy it again.

Beer Reverie

Sometimes, while in the middle of doing something mundane like driving out of Santa Cruz on highway 1 at stop and go speeds, my mind wanders and takes me on an equally mundane journey through random memories and I lose my sense of reality.

Muffin tops, saddle bags, thunder thighs and cankles

Baby got back and now we know why. Calories. Do you know what they are? One of my most horrifying college experiences was on a trip down to good ol' Georgia Southern University to visit my girlfriends from high school. As we began to discuss which road to inebriation we would be taking that night, one girl chimed in that she was watching her weight so she would be drinking liquor, not beer.
