Anchor Brewing Christmas Ale


For the last 33 years Anchor Brewing has released a special Christmas Ale to celebrate the season. Each year the brewery changes the recipe to commemorate the rebirth of the Earth and the coming spring. The ale is available from November through January and will store for a number of years. This years left over pumpkin pie, a pint of Christmas Ale and a movie would be a perfect pairing for a winter evening. I suggest buying a magnum and four of the matching pint glasses and saving it for next years Christmas celebrations.

Charlie Palmer’s Dry Creek Kitchen = Awesome Wine List


Dry Creek Kitchen

I’ve finally had a chance to sift through the rubble of our recent West Coast tour, and am pumped to write about my experience at Charlie Palmer’s Dry Creek Kitchen in the Sonoma County hamlet of Healdsburg. We were meeting The HoseMaster of Wine for a fireside chat about wine, the roaring 90’s, and where he gets all the nudie pictures for his blog.

There was a lot to like at Dry Creek Kitchen, but the wine list is what really blew me away. For starters, it had an identity in that is nearly all Sonoma based. (I say nearly all because I recall a Port on the list). Palmer is an outspoken advocate of using local products in his cooking, so the old saying of “If it grows together, it goes together” applies when it comes to pairing. See the full post »
