Looking for a wine list bargain?

Go off the beaten path

By David White
One recent Saturday morning, a friend sent me the wine list for Green Zebra, one of Chicago’s top vegetarian restaurants, and asked for my advice. He was dining there that evening with friends who enjoyed wine but weren’t obsessive about it. So he would be tasked with ordering for the table.

Over a barrel

Barrel-aged beers are more popular than ever. But what happens when barrel supply can’t meet demand?

By Chris Krovatin
Sam Green of Boulder Beer would love to make sure everyone got to taste the brewery’s wine barrel-aged beers, Xena Warrior Princess and Patchouka Sunrise. He really would. But it’s just not that easy anymore. “Those were extremely popular when we released them at the [Great American Beer Festival],” says Green.

Classic refreshment

The Pimm’s Cup is a cool sipper

By Noel Phillips
When the stars of the tennis world battled it out on the courts of Wimbledon a few weeks ago, viewers not only be turned their heads left and right following the action on the court, but up and down as well, as gallons upon gallons of Pimm’s No. 1 Cups were thrown back in the stands and at home.

Beer for dinner

On the road to the Great American Beer Festival

By Tiffany Lutke
Food and wine go hand in hand. While perusing the wine aisle at the liquor store, you’ll think about what you’ll be having for dinner, and make your selection based on what would pair best. But when it comes to food and beer, pairing beer with dinner is oftentimes an afterthought — or, at least, not as apparent. While craft beer is increasingly gaining respect in the culinary world, there’s a long way to go toward making food and beer pairings second nature, like we think of wine and food.

Straight from the brewer’s mouth

Craft beer sippers to finish out summer

By Tiffany Lutke
In the summertime, people drink more beer, and we drink more session beers. Session beers could be any style, but have relatively low alcohol (usually around or below 5 percent ABV), and therefore, they make it easy to toss back a few. Many of our local breweries have been kind enough to offer up session beers for us to sip on all summer long.

Sharing is caring

Or is it? Boulder’s happy hour scene shuns shareable cocktail trend

By Noel Phillips
For better or worse, we live in a culture of sharing. We share our photos, our statuses, our relationship highs and lows, favorite recipes, workouts, selfies, DIY projects and even our meals. The rise of the Internet tapped into our innately social mindset, lit a fuse under it and exploded it across our screens for all to see. It’s no surprise the sharing mentality would eventually permeate our lives offline, as well.

Make it stop

A few pieces of advice for those hung over in a shiny, happy city

Saturday morning in Boulder. Your eyes are bloodshot. Your mouth tastes like the venue. When you try to stand up, it feels like food poisoning on a ship in bad weather. But you promised yourself you wouldn’t waste this Saturday, given last weekend’s take out-and-Netflix-filled bacchanal.

Mastering the craft

A trip to City Star Brewing

By Tiffany Lutke
As I pulled up to City Star Brewing, under heavy clouds and light rain on an early Friday morning, people were out hanging their flags, running their errands and opening the many small businesses that line the center of town. This town’s pride and character persisted as I entered the brewery.

Craft Sabbath

No place is celebrating the convergence of beer and extreme metal more than Colorado.

By Christopher Krouatin
Beer and heavy metal are pretty obvious bedfellows. When one pictures the average headbanger, there’s usually a tall boy in his or her hand. While wine and spirits often have a pretentious veneer around them, beer is refreshing, satisfying and cures what ails you.
