Thanksgiving is only a few days away, so many of us have turkey on our minds. At About Beverages, not only do we have turkey on our minds, we will be having Turkey on a podcast. Wild Turkey, that is. We have been sharing some wine options for you to enjoy on Thanksgiving, and while whiskey might not be a traditional beverage thought of at this time…
 
Last week we began featuring wines that might find a spot at your Thanksgiving table. That episode featured the Raeburn Chardonnay and we found it to be quite tasty and perfect for many of the flavors of the holiday feast. This week we will feature the varietal that has come to be known as the perfect turkey red wine, Pinot Noir. Pinot Noir is grow…
 
With daily temperatures still in the mid-80’s in our part of the country, sometimes it is hard to believe that it is November already. What is also hard to believe is that Thanksgiving is just two weeks away! This is the time of year when there is a great deal of focus on the food that will be served for the holiday, but we are here to offer some s…
 
Over the years that Keith has worked at Trader Joe’s he has had the opportunity to try several of the wines that they have to offer, a challenge he happily accepts. While Trader Joe’s is always getting in new and exciting wines from around the world that are only available for a limited time, a great many of them are available year round. When one …
 
This week we will be doing things a little differently for our podcast. In the past when we have tried a spirit that is commonly used with a mixer to make a mixed drink, we try the spirit first and then add the mix. However, in this episode the mix will be the star and we will add the spirit afterward. For this show we will be featuring the Spicy C…
 
As you may know, the word “whiskey” (or “whisky” in some circles) encompasses many different styles from all over the world. We have been fortunate to try many different styles and variations from all around the globe and we are always on the lookout for a new expression of our favorite spirit category. This week we are happy to share with you a ry…
 
A few months back we tried and very much enjoyed a cider from Superstition Meadery located in Prescott, Arizona. Andrew has had a few things from them but the one we had was Lemonade in Retrograde which was fermented with lemons, honey and hops. It was delicious and scary-easy to drink at 13.5% ABV. For this week's show we return to Superstition Me…
 
Traditionally at About Beverages, once the calendar turns to September and October we start to feature pumpkin beers on our podcasts. For several years we would have anywhere from four to six different options (sometimes spread over two shows). We would pick our favorite and declare it our winner for that year. For the next years show we would brin…
 
In the past few weeks we have been on somewhat of a “blind-tasting” binge. It wasn’t necessarily something that we had planned, it just manifested itself before our eyes. This week's show is the latest in that series as we will be trying two scotches side by side without knowing which one is which. The two we have for this episode are the Finlaggan…
 
Private labeling is a concept that has been around for a very long time. Private label products are those manufactured by one company for sale under another company's brand. This is done in a wide variety of industries including food and beverages. Trader Joe’s is well known for doing this and it is always fun to speculate as to what company might …
 
Recently Andrew was in Southern California with some friends. While waiting outside of a bottle shop for one of those friends to make their purchase, he received a text from the friend in the bottle shop saying that a beer had been discovered that had to be tried for a podcast. A picture of this beer soon followed. Once he had a chance to digest al…
 
Near the end of our podcasts we wrap things up by mentioning the variety of ways that you can access About Beverages content. We talk about where to find our videos (YouTube), our audio only content (Spotify, iTunes, etc), and about how to keep up to date with us via social media. Since we have three such platforms that we use (Instagram, Tim Tok, …
 
If you are at all familiar with About Beverages then you know that we are quite fond of bourbon. We have had bourbon from a wide variety of distillers and from different states, but until this episode we have not had any bourbon that was made in Nevada. For this week's show we will be trying the Smoke Wagon Small Batch Straight Bourbon Whiskey. Thi…
 
For several years both of our families were fortunate to be able to visit Disneyland in October. Disneyland is a magical place anytime of the year, but during the weeks leading up to Halloween it is transformed into a spookier version of the “Happiest Place on Earth.” In a few of those years, our families' visits to the park overlapped and we all w…
 
Change is a part of life. Change is inevitable. When it's time to change, you’ve got to rearrange. Whether it is a quote, a cliché, or lyrics from a Brady Bunch song, all of these things are true. As Cubs fans know all too well, change was on display last week as a championship era came swiftly and somewhat surprisingly to an end. We were forced to…
 
The past year or so we have found ourselves frequently venturing into previously uncharted territory (for us) on the beverage map in our ongoing attempt to have a more thorough appreciation of the beverage world. One of the categories that is relatively new to us is mead, which we first tried on a show in the autumn of 2020. We tried two offerings …
 
This week once again finds us trying an offering from one of our favorite beverage categories; bourbon. There are so many great choices on your local merchants shelves (and also many that are not), that making a choice can be intimidating to say the least. We, however, remain undaunted and are happy to dive right in and make a selection. Whether it…
 
People outside of the state may not know this, but Arizona has several grape growing and wine producing areas. Two of the wineries, Caduceus Cellars and Merkin Vineyards, are owned by Maynard James Keenan. While he is more well known for being the founder of the bands Tools and A Perfect Circle, he has also made a name for himself as a vintner. Cur…
 
While the gin and tonic is a classic and delicious cocktail year round, it is especially refreshing as the weather begins to get warmer. We are big fans of gin and always on the lookout for new ones to try. We do have our favorites and one of them is Hendrick’s. It has a delicious blend of botanicals that complements the ubiquitous juniper berry wh…
