Beer Battles: Ale vs. Lager [04 Dec 2009|03:10pm]

metrogq


The world of beer is expanding, in both flavor and appeal. Craft brewing has taken the beer-drinking community to new heights and innovations. The time to learn about, explore, enjoy, and appreciate this sacred beverage has never been more exciting. But how does it all break down? How can one begin to decipher the differences between styles and sub-categories of beer? How can anyone truly appreciate beer without a basic understanding of beer’s ingredients and flavor profiles?

Have no fear, LifeEpicurean’s Beer Battles: 101 series will break down basic concepts such as the difference between ales and lagers, highlights of various beer styles, proper pouring and tasting process, and the appropriate glassware for different brews. Pay attention-–class is in session. READ MORE HERE.

Fall Beer Reviews Part II: Pumpkin Ales on LifeEpicurean.com [27 Oct 2009|11:32am]

metrogq

Pumpkin ales are a staple of the fall beer-drinking season. Despite the similarity of ingredients, they can be quite varied in taste. Whether adding hand-cut (sometimes roasted) pumpkins thrown in with the mash during brewing, or utilizing pumpkin puree or flavoring, brewers tend to work with whatever method will drive them the least crazy. These beers often boast an array of spices that conjure memories of homemade pumpkin pie, most notably ground ginger, nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon, and allspice. Generally, pumpkin ales lean heavily on malt, yet are very light on hop, with the chosen spices landing at the forefront of the palate. May these brews warm your spirits as the temperature continues to fall. READ MORE HERE.

Fall Seasonals Beer Reviews: Mike O'Leary of LifeEpicurean.com takes us through the best fall beers [13 Oct 2009|05:13pm]

metrogq

Fall is upon us, and what a blessed time it is for us, the faithful imbibers. As the changing leaves bring vibrant color and chilly weather requires coats and bonfires, so too does the taste of the season increase in robustness, crispness, and warmth. Easily the most fascinating tasting season for beer, autumn boasts numerous styles and labels that tantalize everyone from the novice to the connoisseur. Thus begins Part One of this three-part series: Marzens and friends. Known synonymously as “Oktoberfest beer,” it is a classic flavor of the season. The “friends” that accompany the Marzens in this round-up are a small sample of other seasonal fare. Ponder, discuss, and enjoy. READ MORE.

The Drinks Are On Them: Toni Kervina takes you through a recent Glazer's Trade Show [13 Oct 2009|05:05pm]

metrogq

One way for wine lovers and spirits sippers to keep up their beloved hobby of trying, buying and collecting is by going to a trade show. Usually hosted by a distributor or retailer, these events are as good as any other tasting, usually on a much bigger scale, and at a more forgiving price point. The trick is in scoring an invite, as these sorts of events are not typically open to the public but are held to showcase wholesale and retail selections to business owners, in the hopes of getting some of the products sold at area restaurants and stores. However, if you know someone in the restaurant biz or are tight with some wine shop owners, you’ve likely already got the golden ticket. READ MORE.

The Wines of Summer on LifeEpicurean.com [28 Aug 2009|01:28am]

metrogq

Nothing quite says summertime like a tasty mojito or a pitcher of sangria. But then again, sometimes maybe you don’t want a muddled concoction, or some unworthy fruit mixed into your glass of wine. For hard nosed oenophiles, summer isn’t an off-season for tasting and trying new vintages. The problem is that when it’s 80 degrees and humid as Hell (the official Columbus forecast for about 2 months) it’s much more difficult to enjoy that robust Brunello or sip on that meaty Cab. So what do fans of the super Tuscans, do on such an occasion? Phone a friend. Here are some bottles worth trying that are enjoyable all year long, courtesy of some of the wisest palates in the local scene.

Champagne Under the Stars at the Refectory [21 Aug 2009|09:56pm]

metrogq


Each year the Refectory hosts a night of bubbly imbibing al fresco, romantically entitled Champagne Under the Stars. However, this year’s version began rather surprisingly under the roof, in the restaurant’s back room and lower level, reserved for their usual wine tastings and private events. The standard hors d’oeuvres were passed around: mini quiche Lorraine (good), eggplant crostini (a little bland), and as always, gougeres. One wouldn’t be surprised to see a small factory hidden in the depths of the restaurant churning out those inevitable perfect little cheese puffs. READ MORE.

Good Boy: Weasel Boy Brewing's Lori Wince Talks Craft Beer [03 Aug 2009|06:07pm]

metrogq


While there’s a plethora of fine craft breweries around the country, indeed around the world, it often serves only to remind us of a time when the macro-brews of the world didn’t run the show, and when local brewing was par for the course. In some senses, it was a part of the community, and of one’s everyday life. They went to the local butcher for their meats, went to the baker for their bread, and drank beer from the local brewery. It is in this spirit that Weasel Boy Brewing Company has brought unto Zanesville, Ohio, a new era of craft brewing. Jay and Lori Wince are more than proud to pick up the torch of being just such a brewery. READ MORE HERE.
