National Drink Wine Day

I don’t know who’s in charge of making up fake holidays, but I’m happy to partake in National Drink Wine Day, which has been celebrated for at least a few years now on February 18. This year, let’s try something a bit different. Today I’m going to focus on a few suggestions from a local South Florida winery. “South Florida Wine? You can’t even grow grapes in South Florida!” Continue Reading…

Ancient Italians Were Beer Aficionados

You guys all know I’m a big fan of Dogfish Head Craft Brewery in Milton, Delaware, right? Well, they really outdid themselves with their most recent Ancient Ales beer. Dogfish’s Sam Calagione recruited biomolecular archeologist Dr. Patrick McGovern to take a pilgrimage to Tuscany and the 8th century B.C. Etruscan tombs. With the help of Birreria Brother Brewers Leo DeVencenzo of Birra del Borgo and Teo Musso of Baladin, a chemical and botanical analysis was done on ancient drinking vessels and their contents. What happened next was pretty cool. Continue Reading…

Bring Back Peace and Pasta Apparel

In the past week, I’ve worn my two Peace and Pasta shirts out to local beer events. And all of a sudden, I’m meeting famous people left and right! Let’s start with my appearance last Thursday at the Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale release party at The Pub in Pembroke Pines, Florida. I wore my LET THERE BE BLOOD shirt and the next thing you know, I’m posing for pictures with Former University of Miami All-American and later Head Football Coach Fran Curci! He autographed my football and bought me a beer! Continue Reading…

Halloween Party Beers

Halloween time! You’re planning a party and want some dark-side or costume-themed beers to serve? Well, I’ve got just the recommendations for you.

Let’s start with a classic costume, the Super Hero. Who can resist the cape, right? Well Clown Shoes Brewing delivered their Supa Hero IPA for just such an occasion. Captain M, illustrated on the label, has the super power to protect beer! My kind of guy. This IPA is bitter, full of spice and pine and has a really nice bite. A great start for the evening.

What Bourbon Means to Beer

September is National Bourbon Heritage Month in the United States, recognizing its contribution to the heritage of this country. And I love me a good bourbon, that’s for sure! But what happens to all those bourbon barrels once they are used? They can’t be used again to make more bourbon as that would break the strict rules that define bourbon. Continue Reading…

Beer Tasting BBQ

This past Saturday night, my wife and I had some people over for a Beer Tasting BBQ. We invited friends that we thought normally don’t drink beer and might appreciate trying some new styles, seeing exactly what the craft beer world has to offer. Oh, and we had some awesome empanadas,  grilled churrasco and chorizos and a great salad as well. Continue Reading…

Welcome Home to Brooklyn: Local Beers Await

Welcome home, Gabriele and family. Can’t wait to see the next season of Extra Virgin!

Now that you’re back and living in Brooklyn, I thought I’d make a few local beer suggestions to chill out with. I’d of course start with a beer or three from The Brooklyn Brewery. As an aside, you should try to eventually meet the Brewmaster there, Garrett Oliver, if you haven’t already. He is an expert at pairing beers with food, which of course fits in nicely with you being a professional chef. Anyway, back to the beers. Continue Reading…

Help! Italian Dishes Need American Beer Care Package

Gabriele and Debi recently left Los Angeles and moved back to Italy to shoot the next season of Extra Virgin. I saw a few pictures they posted on Twitter and I can’t help but feel a little jealous. Anyway, I was reading Gabriele’s latest recipes and decided to suggest a few beers that would work really well with them; after all, you are planning on trying to make them right? Also, though it’s too late for them to pack and take these beers with them, that doesn’t mean you can’t send a care package! Continue Reading…

Italian Craft Beers Challenge Wine

Beer and Italy. Beer and Italy. Beer and Italy. Keep repeating as you drift off to sleep. But make no mistake that this pair is not fantasy. And I’m not talking about Peroni or Moretti either. I’m talking about Craft Italian Beers! While wine remains a dominant beverage choice, beer is gaining some momentum for sure. Continue Reading…
