Sierra Nevada Tumbler Autumn Brown Ale



A wonderful Fall afternoon - perfect for a Turkey Sandwich and a nice Ale from the Kind Brewers over at Sierra Nevada Brewing Company.  This Autumn Brown Ale called Tumbler is contributing to the warm glow that I have this afternoon (OK - maybe it's bringing down the Christmas decorations from the attic that is doing it).  Two-Row Pale, Crystal, Chocolate and Smoked Malts make this a smooth Brown Ale that, for me, ranks right up their with the best that the Fall Season offers.

Here's some Propoganda from the Brewery - Sierra Nevada

Cheers!

2010 Los Dos Grenache Syrah


Going over to Spain tonight via a nice Grenache Syrah blend from the Bodegas Aragoneses in the Campo de Borja region of Aragon.  They named it Los Dos because of the 2 varietals that are in the blend.  I call it delicious.  The Grenache contributes a nice strawberry nose and the Syrah gives it a bit of the spice and smoke flavors, combining together wonderfully for a bottle that goes for about $6 down at you local market.  This one has a screwtop, so you don't have to worry about any corkiness.  I might have to go back for another bottle to serve with Thanksgiving dinner.

Speakeasy Scarlett Red Rye


Popped the top on a Rye this afternoon and pairing it with a Ham on Rye Sandwich.  This one is from the Speakeasy Ales and Lagers group in San Francisco.   I was not impressed with the Big Daddy IPA, but this one is mighty fine.  I poured it out and had a sip while playing some pinball and was a bit skeptical, but once the Ham on Rye was started, the beer complemented the Sammich perfectly.  So, is this one of those Food Beers?  Ya know, a beer that doesn't stand up to well by itself, but works perfectly next to some tasty food. Yeah, that's the case with this one.  Loving the caramel and rye flavors, but I'm picking up a sharp character that mellows with the food.  Hmm - looking up at the picture - I realized that Scarlett has green shoes - interesting.....

2010 Santa Julia Malbec


It's a Red Wine Sunday tonight with a killer Malbec from Santa Julia Winery in the Mendoza region of Argentina.  I've had a few Malbecs from the country and have been disappointed a few times by bad corks and bad wine, but this one is really good.  A synthetic cork takes care of the "corked" issue and the wineries choice of sustainably farmed grapes and barrel aging make this a keeper.  Plus, I found it on sale for about a tenner at my local Co-Op.  I'm a happy camper - now back to those records - XTC or the Ventures next on the Juke?  

Cheers,
Jerry
