Hello food, wine & beer pals! Welcome to my photo-journal of food, wine and beer adventures. I'm pictured on the right and my home brewing pal, Aron is on the left. Years ago I started watching the Food Network, saving recipe's, making recipe's, trying new things, tasting new things, and it's all blossomed from there, including the weekly tastings (beer & wine) at BevMo. I'm hooked on variety and continuing my search for tasty goodness all over the world. Please feel free to email me with comments and ideas at FoodieWinonBrew@yahoo.com Bon Appetito!

BEVMO—Beverages & More! http://www.bevmo.com/
I thought I’d give a “shout out” to a place where I’ve spent many an hour and “pretty penny” shamefully & shamelessly. There are a lot of great things about BevMo, 2 of them being the $2 wine tastings on Saturday, and $1 beer tastings on Fridays, conveniently at “happy hour” time: 4-7pm. Check your local store for times. I owe a lot of tasting knowledge of beer & wine to BevMo and the people who are also at the tastings can be an encyclopedia of information about wine, beer making, beer festivals, wine festivals, wine country, etc. I first fell in love with IPA’s at BevMo (I should mention my favorite: Union Jack from Firestone Walker—most of the time that sings beautiful tasting notes to me), and also, rosé wines (I should mention Coppola’s “Sofia” Rosé), both of which I had no knowledge of before I discovered them at BevMo. I will be singing future praises of the tastings as those occur (or, as I’m impressed to do so). As for the general praises of BevMo, they have competitive prices in beer, wine and liquor. I often look for a cheaper price on Guinness, or Newcastle, some of my beer staples when I’m in the mood and sometimes after my tastings I buy. I have to say that marketing idea is some special kind of genius—get ‘em liquored up to shop! Well, it worked on me, and depending on how much you spend you get a 5% discount coupon periodically—I think it’s after you spend about $200 or so, and I’ve earned a few discounts in my 3 years or so frequenting BevMo. I worship at BevMo, it’s my Friday/Saturday constitutional…if the mood permits.
