The Happening: BottleRock & Drinking Green for Earth Day

Beverage News

If you read Issue 3 of Mutineer Magazine, then you know the deal with BottleRock in Culver City, CA. This place is the real deal, with one of the best bottle for bottle beverage programs you’ll ever see. Helmed by the incredible palate of Sommelier George Skorka, I can’t say enough about this killer establishment.

The reason I mention them today is that beginning April 1st, BottleRock will offer, “a special list of beer and wine producers that use sustainable, organic, biodynamic or photovoltaic practices.

Here are some of the highlights from the special, earth-inspired list:


Brasserie Dupont Foret Saison Ale (organic) $13

    Biodynamic is a kind of sustainable farming and production set of standards that some people swear by and other people chuckle at. Here are a few excerpts from the Oxford Wine Companion on the subject:

    “biodynamic wine viticulture is, depending on your perspective, and enhance or extreme form of organic viticulture. This controversial regime has produces some impressive results but without the reassurance of conclusive scientific explanation…Biodynamics sees each vineyard as a living organism which can be maintained in a self-sustaining way.”

    pardon my noobness …. but what does biodynamic entail?

  3. Michael | Wednesday, February 25, 2009

    GREAT! Thanks MM :)

    The above biodynamic’s explanation sounds like “modernizing” traditional way of producing wine.

    Pardon me if I’m wrong.

  5. Alan Kropf | Friday, March 20, 2009

    I’d actually go the other way and say that biodynamic is going back in time the the purest and most natural form of viticulture, though it is quite controversial

  6. Alan Kropf | Friday, March 20, 2009

    …that is, controversial in terms of the perceived benefits
