Founders, All Day IPA

by J Frazzetta May 5th, 2016
Bottle/Tap: Bottle

Over the last few years I’ve started to notice more craft beers with the word "session" thrown on their label, and thinking nothing of it, I just picked up a few of the brews to sample at home.  A few weeks ago I happened to read an article for some beer magazine or forum where there was a quick explanation for the "session" craze, Avid Reader, and I’ll relay that to you now: everyone loves string beers but

    California, Chardonnay, 2012


    Once again, we're sampling a wine from the Cliffside gift basket. This time we've got our mitts on a Chardonnay, so we've chilled it to a cool 50 degrees fahrenheit, and are about ready to enjoy. Although it's never been my style to play by the rules of service temperature when it comes to wine, I decided to give it a go this one time to
