In this conversation with Derek Brown, author of the forthcoming book, Mindful Mixology, some of the topics we discuss include: How Derek entered into the low- and no-ABV cocktail space, partially as a function of shifting life circumstances, and partially as a way to deepen the conversation around what a cocktail is or should be. What it means to drink mindfully - we're all aware that this word has many different connotations, and Derek explains exactly what he means by the phrase “mindful mixology.” Then we take a look at the book: how it's set up to give you a crash course in the ingredients and techniques that create delicious low- and no-ABV drinks, as well as the other voices from the NA cocktail space he pulled in to comment on subjects like non-alcoholic spirits and setting the mood without alcohol. Finally, we wrap up by exploring the language we use to describe cocktails without booze, how bartenders and bar programs can learn more about incorporating No- and low-ABV drinks into their menus, and the burgeoning future of the no-ABV spirits category.

BrewDog Hazy Jane Mango is a New England IPA by style. Our recent release of Hazy Jane Guava was such a success that we've given our flagship New England IPA another fruited twist. This craft beer is 7.2% ABV. In this craft beer review, we will take a look at the color, smell, and taste.
Sam Calagione talks 26 years of of Dogfish Head Many people consider Dogfish Head's Sam Calagione to be one of the pioneers of modern American craft beer. Sam is quick to clarify he's part of the 2nd wave of craft and others, like Sierra Nevada's Ken Grossman, paved the way for his off-centered ales. Calagione's method of continuously hopping his beers throughout the boil allowed him to pack in immense hop flavor without making the brews overly bitter. The contraption he used to add the hops in his early batches of 60 Minute and 90 Minute IPA was fashioned from a vibrating football game and now sits in the permanent collection of the Smithsonian Museum. The brewery also offers 120 Minute version of their IPA at a whopping 15-20% ABV and revivals of beers from the past in their Ancient Ales series as well as big stouts, pilsners, light sours like Sea Quench and soon, Crush-inspired canned cocktails. Although his beer may have been 2nd wave, Dogfish Head was one of the first brewery's to add distilling to their portfolio. If it wasn't enough to found such an iconic brewery, Calagione is also an accomplished author and TV personality. His latest book, The Dogfish Head Book: 26 Years of Off-Centered Adventures, takes a look back at the brewery's history and the life and business lessons he's learned along the way.

This week we are diving into Part 1 of the Yogurt Shop Murders. Four girls are found bound, gagged, sexually assaulted, and their bodies burned beyond recognition. This is the 30 year anniversary of the most brutal, unsolved case in Austin history.

For a century old cocktail, many aspects of The Bamboo make it a decidedly on-trend drink in today's landscape. The Bamboo eschews a base spirit in favor of industry darling sherry, which also allows it to arrive with a lower alcohol content. To walk us through the complex, stirred blend of Spanish wine, vermouth, and bitters, we're joined today by Alex Day, one of the partners of Death & Co. Listen on (or read below) to discover Alex's Bamboo recipe. And don't forget to subscribe! Alex Day's Bamboo Recipe Ingredients 1 ½ ounces Amontillado sherry ¾ ounce blanc vermouth ¾ ounce dry vermouth 1 dash of orange bitters Garnish: lemon twist Directions Add all ingredients to a mixing glass filled with ice and stir until chilled. Ideally the sherry and vermouths will be fridge cold prior to mixing, and stirring should take around two-thirds of the amount used to mix higher-ABV cocktails, such as the Martini. Strain into a cocktail glass and garnish with a lemon twist. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

American brewers have long been influenced by European brewing traditions, but what happens when European brewers take some of those American twist and apply them to their own brewing? Poland's Browar Pinta (http://www.browarpinta.pl/en/) answers exactly that question, as the ten-year-old brewery puts a PNW hop twist on Baltic porter, embraces hazy New England-style IPA, or barrel ages imperial stout. In this episode, Managing Director Paweł Maslowski and Head Brewer Bart Ociesa explain the inspirations for the creative take that has led to dynamic growth for the small craft brewery. Along the way, they discuss: Hopping strategy for Baltic porter with American hops Dialing in water with the perfect chloride ratio Keeping pH in the right range to avoid astringency Brewing Grodziskie Balancing bitterness in a sub 3% ABV beer with 100% smoked malt and 25 IBUs The importance of carbonation The importance of freshness in smoked malt Smoked malt's flavor impact as a function of overall amount, not percentage Barrel aging stout and barleywine and more! *This episode is brought to you by: * G&D Chillers (https://gdchillers.com): For nearly 30 years, G&D Chillers has set the mark for quality equipment you can rely on.

It's episode 178 and this week Jim & Ted talk beer, their week, what they're watching, and two trailers: Don't Look Up and Spider-Man: No Way Home. The guys go "low" ABV this week, but the beers are really good. Be sure to like, subscribe, and share.
Three lagers are up on the agenda today, and only one of them is a homebrew. Brian sent us his Czech Pale Lager attempt, and we try our best to solve his green pepper issue, then we get to the main event: how does Heineken 0.0 stack up against regular Heineken in a taste test? We know what you're thinking, and you aren't wrong. The push of NA beer into the craft space is new, so if anyone can pass off a 0.0% ABV lager as full-flavor (ok, "full-flavor"), it's gotta be Heineken, right? Find out!

Hiker discovers Hawaiian stream with 1.2% alcohol content https://notthebee.com/article/hiker-discovers-a-hawaiian-stream-with-12-percent-alcohol-content File this under Happy Thanksgiving and tell me God ain't good! According to the Bee: “A hiker in Hawaii's Oahu island was walking around when he sniffed out a familiar smell... alcohol. He followed his nose and it led him to stream 120 feet beneath a freeway. Once the hiker discovered the boozy brook, he contacted a local environmental activist, who alerted the Department of Health (way to ruin all the fun). A sample of the water was tested and it was found to contain 1.2 percent alcohol and .04 percent sugar – which is the same amount of alcohol in many low-ABV beers. They are looking at a spill from a Department of Transportation-owned storm pipe adjacent to the highway. The DOT has linked the spill to Hawaii's largest alcoholic beverage supplier, Paradise Beverages, which owns a warehouse across the freeway. But they are still unsure what is causing the spill.” California's Santa Cruz County mandates mask-wearing in private homes https://www.theblaze.com/news/california-santa-cruz-county-mandates-mask-wearing-in-private-homes According to the Blaze: “An indoor mask mandate has been reinstated in Santa Cruz County, California, after a surge in winter coronavirus cases has led to increased hospitalizations. The county health department is requiring that people wear face coverings in indoor settings, including in private homes. The mandate went into effect on Sunday at 11:59 p.m, after the county reported a seven-day average of 72 coronavirus cases per 100,000 people — placing it in the "substantial" transmission category, according to the CDC. "Unfortunately, a potential winter surge appears to be a significant threat to the health and safety of our community," Santa Cruz County Health Officer Dr. Gaill Newel said in a statement. Both people who have been vaccinated against COVID-19 and those who have not are required to wear face coverings indoors. Business and governmental entities are being told to require their employees to wear masks and to post signage at points of entry for their indoor settings to alert the public of the mask requirement.” Exemptions for sale: How a central Washington doctor helped workers dodge vaccine mandate https://www.krem.com/article/news/investigations/covid-vaccine-exemptions-for-sale-anna-elperin-awake-health-ellensburg/281-3fdbfa97-32fb-41b4-a25b-2394b0d38afd According to KREM: “In Ellensburg, doctor removed her mask as she entered a small medical exam room in October and began signing a COVID-19 vaccine exemption form for a first-time patient, without asking a single question about her medical history. The only way most workers who were opposed to being vaccinated against COVID-19 could potentially keep their jobs was to seek a religious or medical exemption before the Oct. 18 deadline. But such medical exemptions required documentation from a licensed physician, like Dr. Anna Elperin. A three-month KING 5 investigation found Elperin repeatedly signed and sold those mask and COVID vaccine exemptions to residents across Washington state, in some cases with no questions asked. The doctor wrote exemptions for patients who did not provide a legitimate medical reason to receive one, including people who sought to evade local and state pandemic-related mandates. Charging each patient from $150 to $200 for the forms, Elperin potentially raked in tens of thousands of dollars from medical exemption sales a month and profited from state, local and private company policies intended to reduce the spread of coronavirus. “What you just described is an ‘exemption mill,'” said Dr. Gabriel Bosslet, one of three national medical ethics experts consulted for this story and an associate professor at the Indiana University School of Medicine in Indianapolis. “You hand over money, and I ask no questions and give you a piece of paper that satisfies the state that you have an exemption.” This investigation is based on the experiences of four undercover journalists who received mask and vaccine exemptions signed by Elperin this fall. Reporters also interviewed three former Awake Health employees, who said they watched the doctor sell hundreds of COVID-related exemptions without asking patients medical questions or conducting any medical exams.” Werkz: DNB Shan and his team at Werkz specialize in concealed carry holsters for pistols with lights.

Washington public schools lose over 55,000 students https://thepostmillennial.com/washington-public-schools-lose-over-55-000-students/?fbclid=IwAR2pEJb2PMu1ReiBHYmlrill76wIMEVA2StsGX64iahMYtd0Hrbzgcp7RlY According to the Postmillennial, I have a praise report to bring you: “It was revealed last week in a presentation to a state Senate committee that the "November 2021 forecast is, on average, 50,334 students or 4.5 percent lower than the February forecast, and 42,036 students or 3.8 percent lower than the June forecast for the 2021-23 Biennium." Many parents opted for private school, learning pods and home schooling. Parents told The Post Millennial that they chose other educational options. Parents cited multiple factors including that schools did not offer in-person instruction during the Covid pandemic, lack of safety on campus, teaching practices and curriculum based in critical race theory and radical, hyper-sexualized curriculum, as well as a substandard education.” And as sort of a side note at the end of the article, it says: “Less than 20 of Washington's 9,056 deaths from COVID have been children under 19.” 6 Senate Democrats waffling on massive social spending bill https://justthenews.com/government/congress/sen-blackburn-says-many-six-senate-democrats-waffling-massive-social-spending “With President Joe Biden's massive social spending bill facing an uncertain future in the U.S. Senate, most media attention has focused on two skeptical Democrats, Sens. Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona. But a prominent Republican says she senses more Democrats in the chamber who are facing tight 2022 reelection races are considering bolting from their party's $1.75 trillion signature Build Back Better legislation, which passed the House last week on a party line vote. "Not only is it Manchin, but you've got about five or six others in the Senate that are looking at their races, they're down in the polls, or they're tied up in the polls," Sen. Marsha Blackburn told Just the News on Monday. "And the Republican ballot is up. Joe Biden, his popularity is just unbelievably low. I mean, whoever thought he would be lower than Jimmy Carter. "It is harder every day for Democrats to support this abysmal bill," she said during an interview with the John Solomon Reports podcast. "And some of these House members who finally came around and voted for it. They might as well start cleaning their office out and heading home, give somebody their proxy to vote. They will not be reelected." Blackburn suggested Democratic support is weakening as the CBO found the legislation will add significantly to the U.S. debt. Americans realize those costs will be passed on to them, and fears grow that a massive injection of federal spending will only worsen persistent inflation. "All of this is going to be paid by people that are hardworking people, and Joe Biden said, 'Oh, I'm not raising a penny in taxes on anybody making under $400,000 a year,'" she said. "Well, that's not accurate. It's not accurate on a lot of different fronts. And people know this."” The Reformed Sage: MWF Plug + Logo + Unboxing The Reformed Sage loves biblical theology, evangelism, and coffee.

In this effervescent and eye-opening conversation with Fever-Tree co-founder and CEO, Tim Warrillow, some of the topics we discuss include: The drinks landscape in 2003 when Tim and his partner Charles set out to fundamentally change the way we approach the oft-overlooked and even-more-oft commodified carbonated mixers category. Why ingredient sourcing has played a pivotal role in Fever Tree's rise to cocktail stardom, leading Tim to dodge nail strips and rocket launchers in the search for the world's purest quinine. The symbiotic and dynamic relationship between premium spirits and premium mixers, and why Fever-Tree looks to the world's best distillers as inspiration for new products and flavor combinations. We also talk about Fever-Tree's new “Easy Mixing” book, which contains over 150 cocktails spanning beloved cocktail categories like the Mule, Highball, Summer Cup, Spritz, and even low- and no-ABV drinks. Along the way, we cover why Fever-Tree only comes in glass bottles, how the flavor of Mexican limes depend entirely on the meteor that killed the dinosaurs, what to drink with philanthropist Bill Gates, And much, much more.

Basilicata is a tiny region that represents the arch of the Italy's boot -the small area that borders Calabria in the west, Puglia in the east, Campania in the north and the Gulf of Taranto in the south. In this, Italy's 3rd least populous region, wine has been made for thousands of years but today, what remains is just 2,006 ha/5,000 acres of vineyards, which is 0.15% of Italy's total wine production. Of the 2% that is DOC wine, there is a shining star – a wine that can rival the best of the best in all of Italy – Aglianico del Vulture (ahl-LYAh-nee-koh del VOOL-too-ray). In this show we discuss the background of this southern Italian region and discuss the jewel in its crown. Here are the show notes… We first discuss the location and land of Basilicata In the southern Apennines, Basilicata is the most mountainous region in the south of Italy. 47% is covered by mountains, 45% is hilly, and only 8% is plains. The west is the hillier area, the east runs into flatter land into Puglia. There is a small stretch of coastline between Campania and Calabria and a longer one along the Gulf of Taranto, between Puglia and Calabria. Photo: Getty Images We do a good look at the history of Basilicata, but the highlights are: People (or really ancestors of modern people) have inhabited the area since Paleolithic times. Matera is considered one of the oldest continuous civilizations in the world. Its Sassi district, which has now become a UNESCO World Heritage Site, has caves on a rocky hillside that were inhabited by people as far back as the Paleolithic times. Greeks settled in Basilicata from at least the 8th c BCE and likely brought Aglianico with them. Basilicata has been conquered by nearly everyone who paraded through southern Italy over the centuries. In the 1970s and 80s there was a renaissance in wine in Basilicata but it didn't last. Today, there is renewed hope and investments, as a new generation of winemakers takes over their family domaines, establishes new properties and combines traditional and modern winemaking to make excellent wines. We mention several DOCs of Basilicata: Photo of Matera: Getty Images Matera DOC was granted in 2005 It is 50 ha / 124 acres, and produces about 11,200 cases per year REDS: Matera Primitivo (90%+ Primitivo/Zinfandel grape), Matera Rosso (at least 60% Sangiovese and 30% Primitivo), and Matera Moro, (a minimum of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Primitivo and 10% Merlot). There are basic and Riserva levels Whites: Matera Greco (85%+ Greco), Matera Bianco (minimum of 85% Malvasia Bianca di Basilicata) There is also spumante (sparkling) made in the Champagne method Grottino di Roccanova DOC was granted in 2009 8 ha / 20 acres, and producers about 3,000 cases per year White/Bianco (Minimum of 80% Malvasia Bianca di Basilicata) Red/Rosso: Sangiovese with Cabernet Sauvignino, Malvasia Nera di Basilicata, Montepulciano Terre dell'Alta Val d'Agri DOC was granted in 2003. At 11 ha / 27 acres, the area makes a mere 3,840 cases a year. Vineyards can be no higher than 800 m/ 2,625 ft Red/Rosato: Rosso (Minimum 50% Merlot; minimum 30% Cabernet Sauvignon; maximum 20% other red grapes). Riserva and regular versions Photo: Getty Images, Val d'Agri We spend the rest of the show discussing Aglianico del Vulture DOC/DOCG, which is 25% of Basilicata's total production Vulture's land… Vulture is an extinct volcano that was last active about 130,000 years ago. It is 56 km/35 miles north of Potenza at an altitude of 1,326m/4,350 ft, close to borders with Puglia and Campania. Woods surround the area and the top of the slope has more volcanic soils and lower lying vineyards have more mixed, colluvial, and clay soils. The elevations are specified by the DOC – too low or too high and you won't get great flavor development or quality wine, so the range is 200-700 m/660 -2300 ft. The variety of soils, elevations and exposures mean that there are different styles of Aglianico del Vulture. Photo: Getty Images Vulture's climate… Vulture is continental in climate and it has lower average daily temperatures than Sicily or Tuscany. There are cool breezes that sweep in from the Adriatic, cooling the area and preventing humidity. Elevation also keeps things cooler, especially at night, which means the grapes experience a long growing season, building flavor in the hot sun during the day, and cooling at night to hoard acidity. The rain shadow of Mount Vulture also keeps the weather cool and dry. That said, in some years the drought is fierce, grapes can get sunburned, the tannins can be tough, and the wine can be overly alcoholic. Characteristics of Aglianico del Vulture Aglianico is a thick-skinned grape that needs mineral-rich soils with clay and limestone (like what is on Vulture). It can be overcropped, so careful tending to the grapes leads to better results (this is kind of a dumb thing to say, since that's the case with all grapes, but I'm putting it out there anyway!). Flavors range in Aglianico del Vulture. Younger wines are high in tannins and acidity, with black cherry, chocolate, flowers, minerals, dark-fruit, and shrubby, forest notes. With a few years (5 or more), you may get nuances of Earl gray tea, black tea, licorice, earth, tar, spice, and violets. The tannins calm with age, but the acidity remains – with age (7-10 years) these wines are pretty impressive. We discuss the fact that there are some lighter styles and some savory, complex ones, but most are minerally with tannin in some form. Photo of Aglianico: Getty Images Aglianico del Vulture was made a DOC in 1971 It is 520/1,284 acres, and it's average production is 235,000 cases The wine is red or spumante – all is 100% Aglianico (the sparkling must be made in the Champagne method). Reds are required to be aged for 9-10 months in a vessel of the producer's choice before release (oak isn't required). Spumante must rest for 9 months on the lees. Photo: Monte Vulture, Getty Images Aglianico del Vulture Superiore DOCG/ Riserva Superiore DOCG was created in 2010. It is within the Aglianico del Vulture DOC but is only 89 ha/220 acres Production is much smaller, at 6,670 cases. The wine is 100% Aglianico. Superiore is required to spend 12 months in oak, 12 months in a bottle, cannot be sold until at least three years after harvest. Superiore Riserva spends 24 months in oak, 12 in bottle, and cannot be released until at least 5 years after harvest. Both categories must reach a minimum of 13.5% ABV (basically a guarantee that the grapes are ripe!) In the show we discuss the food of Basilicata and mention a few specialties: M.C. Ice was surprised that in this area, bread crumbs were a cheese substitute, sprinkled over pasta, meat, and vegetables. Horseradish is common here, along with Italian hot peppers, beans, pork sausage, and the famed bread of Matera, which is a Protected Georgraphical Indication and uses wheat grown locally and a yeast infused with fruit. Producers are vital to getting a quality wine. This is my list… D'Angelo (Split into D'Angelo and Donato D'Angelo recently, and each is good) Paternoster (recently sold to Veneto's Tommasi family) Cantine del Notaio Elena Fucci Terre degli Svevi /Re Manfredi Grifalco Eubea and Basilisco (both small-production bottlings) Bisceglia (we were drinking the 2018 Terre di Vulcano, which was about $18) DOC wines are around US$20/GBP£15, DOCG wines are more like US$45/GBP£43. __________________________ Thanks for our sponsors this week: Wine Access: Access to the best wines for the best prices!
