2011 Surly Darkness

Beer

Surly Darkness 2011 label

On October 22, the 2011 vintage of Surly Darkness will be unleashed. Having featured everything from a vampire to a mummy to the devil since its bottled release in 2007, 2011’s theme will be a zombie. The inscription on the label reads:

Oct 22, 2011 1127 hrs
Journal of Omar Ansari–Day 1460

I can hear them outside again, pounding at the gate. This marauding army of undead can’t be held at back much longer. Their thirst for Darkness is unrelenting, and my fuel and rations will be gone by nightfall. Only the robust flavors of this massive Russian Imperial Stout will appease them. I must give them what they want. I just hope we have enough. No! The gate has been breached. I hope that help soon…

Will you be at Darkness Day? Visit them at SurlyBrewing.com.



Feast on the Best of LA’s Food & Drink at THE TASTE

FoodSpiritsWine

The Taste

Last year, the food infatuated of LA glittered and guzzled at the first-ever Food & Wine Presents: Taste of Beverly Hills,” a multi-day event, showcasing the town’s best restaurants and some of eating and drinking’s brightest stars. This year, the team behind that gala (Best Events) has joined with the producers of the “Los Angeles Times’ Celebration of Food & Wine” to throw an unparalleled, city-wide extravaganza of the edible, called simply, The Taste.

The event will take place for four days over Labor Day Weekend, September 2-5, 2011, at nine different locations – from Downtown to Hollywood. Over forty of the city’s top restaurants will be serving unlimited bites of their best dishes, and food celebs like Giada De Laurentiis, Ludo Lefebvre, Michael Voltaggio, Marcel Vigneron and Susan Feniger, and others, will preside over the various parties.

All that delicious food is only half the story, of course, and for those of us who are particularly partial to potables, The Taste promises an abundance of liquid pleasure, too, guided by LA legends of libation, like Julian Cox, Michael Shearin and The Beer Chicks.  Events such as “Paso Robles Pioneers,” “How to Taste Like a Master Sommelier,” “Taco Tequila Tryst,” “Art of Mixing,” and “Navigating a Wine List,” will offer glimpses into the world of professional drinking – and learning how to drink like a professional. Event sponsors include Anchor Distilling Co. and Peroni, Avion and 4 Copas Tequila, Caorunn Gin, Wild Turkey, Campo de Encanto Pisco, VeeV Acai Spirit, Aperol, Cyrus Noble Bourbon, Chopin and Voli Vodka and Don Q Rums. Wineries such as Flowers, Justin, Chalone, Charles Krug, Coppola, Row Eleven, Summerland Winery and Banfi will be pouring unlimited tastes throughout the weekend’s events.

Tickets are available for the entire weekend or by individual event.



New Product Spotlight: Art in the Age RHUBY

Spirits

Art in the Age RHUBY

From the same people that brought you ROOT and SNAP, they now introduce to you RHUBY. RHUBY will take you back to 1771, with a modern twist. In 1771, Ben Franklin sent John Bartram America’s first rhubarb seeds. Bartram proceeded to make a delicious garden tea with rhubarb, beets, carrots, lemon, petitgrain, cardamom, pink peppercorn, coriander, vanilla, and pure cane sugar. Art in the Age took that recipe and made it into a spirit… and RHUBY was born.

Try this recipe:

Rhuby Rose

  • 2 parts RHUBY
  • 2 parts strawberries
  • dash of rose water
  • club soda

Instructions

  • Muddle strawberries, RHUBY
    and rose water in a tall glass.
  • Add ice and club soda.

For more information on RHUBY, watch this video and check out their website.

Governor Jerry Brown Proclaims September 2011 California Wine Month

Wine

California Wine MonthGovernor Jerry Brown has proclaimed September 2011 as California Wine Month, the seventh consecutive year the state has recognized the contributions of the state’s growers and vintners by proclamation. To celebrate, many of the Golden State’s wineries, winegrape growers and regional associations are hosting special consumer wine events.

“As an industry, California wine brings innumerable benefits to the state. Our scenic and historic wine-growing regions, a renowned cuisine based on food and wine pairings, and the opportunity to taste and purchase our world-famous wines bring an estimated 20.7 million tourists to our state each year,” said Governor Brown in the proclamation. “Our state’s wineries create jobs for 330,000 Californians and revenue from retail sales of $18.4 billion, including $1.14 billion in exports sales to 122 countries.” To view the complete proclamation, go here.

In September, tastings, tours and special events will happen across California as Californians celebrate their expansive wine culture. Some of these events include Sonoma Wine Country Weekend, Livermore’s 30th Annual Harvest Wine Celebration, CRUSH: Temecula Valley 2nd Annual Wine & Culinary Showcase, Madera Vintners Association’s California Wine Month Reception & Wine Tasting and Pinotfest Monterey. Others include CALIFORNIA WINE RUSH and Savor the Central Coast 2011.

Be sure to raise a glass of California wine during the month of September for the great vintages of the past and for the many great vintages to come.
