    On The Horizon...

    Hello fellow beverage enthusiasts!  We are putting the final touches on our next podcast and it should be available on Tuesday, April 7th.  The tequilas that we will be tasting are: Milagro Sliver, Sauza Hornitos, Patron Reposado, and Cazadores Anejo.  For this episode we will be tasting them straight and discussing their individual taste profiles.  The follow up podcast will feature discussions (and us trying a few as well) about our favorite recipes for mixed drinks that feature this delicious, complex, and very versatile spirit from Mexico.  If you have any favorite tequila recipes you would like us to try so that we might talk about them in our next podcast, please e-mail them to aboutbeverages@q.com or just visit our blog and click on the envelope on the lower left-hand side.

    We look forward to hearing from you and learning about how you enjoy Tequila!

    On The Horizon...

    We just want to let you know that our next podcast is going to feature a visit to the Tasting Room where we will be discussing and (hopefully) enjoying spring season release beers.  The beers we will be tasting are: Deschutes Buzzsaw Ale, Blue Moon’s Rising Moon, New Belgium’s Mighty Arrow and Sam Adams White Ale.  If you have not already tried any of these, or even if you have, we invite you to do so and join us on this journey of exploration and wonder as we venture into the great unknown of spring beer offerings.

    At this point we look to be on target for the podcast to be released on or around March 17th.  We are looking forward to it and hope you are too!
