I think you all should come to NC. 1. I’m here. So… and 2. There are a ton of wineries! Now, this is not a wine blog. Believe me, sometimes I wish it were. But that’s okay, maybe one day. Scott? Anyway, the best thing about one of the best Yadkin Valley wineries is that… → Read More

My First Homebrewing Experience Part 1


The other night I started on my first batch of homebrewed beer. A few weeks ago LivingSocial had a deal for a fairly inexpensive homebrewing starter kit from Midwest Supplies. I took them up on the offer and a few days later had a homebrewing kit at my door. The biggest pot I had in… → Read More

Houston Beer Fest 2012


On Saturday, June 9, 2012, the second annual Houston Beer Fest was held in downtown Houston.
