Richard's Favourite American Beers for Thanksgiving

Richard's Favourite American Beers for Thanksgiving

November 18, 2019

You may or may not know that we have an American in our midst! Richard was born and grew up in the states and to this day will celebrate Thanksgiving in London with as much enthusiasm as everyone else across the pond. As such, it only feels right for Richard to do our journal takeover today, reminiscing over his favourite American beers with which to celebrate Thanksgiving. 

It goes without saying that even when we're not celebrating, we're still drinking beer out of our stemless Jancis Robinson glasses which are perfect for all beers, cider and even water. 

1. Founders Brewing All Day IPA

"The name says it all: this is the perfect beer for Thanksgiving, when celebrations start early and finish late. It's a sessional beer that doesn't compromise on taste, which is often hard to come by"

2. Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. Pale Ale

"If you read our recent post about tasting wine, you'll know why our sense of smell and taste can stir up such vivid memories. This is exactly what happens with Sierra Nevada, which really takes me back to my first Thanksgiving as an adult in America when I was living in Lake Tahoe. Thanksgiving just isn't the same without it now!"

3. Firestone Stickee Monkee: Central Coast Quad

"Not one that I found in America, but actually from my local (and favourite) independent beer and wine shop, Real AleI'm a big fan of a barrel-aged beer, and this one in particular is interesting, as it brewed with Belgian candi sugar and aged in fine bourbon barrels."

Happy Thanksgiving from us, to you!

For those in the UK, don't fret, you're not missing out! We like to buy our International beers from here

8 Wine Myths Debunked with Jancis Robinson and Food52

December 04, 2019

Do you need a different glass for different wines? Can you drink red wine with fish or white with meat? Is it true that only red wine needs decanting? What is the proper way to taste wine in a restaurant?

Who better to ask these questions to than world-renowned wine critic and our good friend, Jancis Robinson. During Jancis' World Atlas of Wine tour in the US earlier this year, she and Richard popped into Food52 to bust some of the biggest wine myths around.

The Best Christmas Cheese and Wine with Joe Fattorini

December 02, 2019

With Christmas now less than a month away, we can't help but start to think about what is going to feature on our Christmas cheese board this year. Better yet, which wines are we going to match them with? 

We could think of anyone better than Wine Expert, Writer and Presenter of the Wine Show Joe Fattorini to recommend his cheese and wine pairings for a foolproof Christmas lunch. Like Joe, we will of course be using the "One Glass for Every Wine" Jancis Robinson wine glass, which comes in handy in such situations as we'll be tasting whites, reds and sweet wines!
