Now I’m just bragging

Not that this has much to do with the content of this blog, but hey, there was some Sixpoint on board.

Our trip in 6 minutes

Alan Kropf, Editor in Chief of Mutineer Magazine, joined us for part of our trip and like me, had his camera attached to him the entire time.  I still need more practice, but check out this great series of snippets below.  You’ll recognize quite a bit from my last few posts.  I’ve haven’t gotten to Coonawarra yet, but this will give you a taste of what’s to come.

Pouch wine

I got an email today that Martin Scott is now carrying wine in a pouch.  I will report back once I’ve sampled it, but fingers crossed that it’s tasty.  Here’s an introduction video from their website:

PM Picnic

My friend Thomas sent me the link to this video with the comment, “This is as bad as the Flinstones advertising for Winston.”

Big Flats 1901

As you know, I am a big supporter of local booze.  Guess I haven’t been doing enough beer shopping at Walgreen’s. 

It is worthwhile to read the full article that came out on Tuesday in my home-town newspaper about this “premium” and “genuine” brew that retails for $2.99 a six-pack.  I hope the traffic up there doesn’t get out of control this summer when I’m trying to visit friends and family.

Stephen Colbert featured the beer in a segment at the beginning of this month.

Trenta is not an Italian wine

Trenta is, however, a new cup size at Starbucks that will hold an entire bottle of wine.  31 oz.  Wow.  I’m no scientist, but I think it’s safer to consume this quantity of wine vs. this quantity of Starbucks coffee.  This video will help clarify things for you:

“I’m a 91 on that”

I cannot define a perfect wine. 

This is a teaser video for James Suckling’s new website.  Note the intense synthesizer background.

Does it make you want to check out his website?

“I deserve to get drunk”

On Monday and Tuesday of this week I attended a train-the-trainer workshop for TIPS, a group that focuses on responsible alcohol sales and service.  Part of the curriculum was this stand-up routine from Bill Cosby.  It was a nice distraction from the other films, which consisted primarily of bad actors sipping food-colored water in bars and restaurants with décor from the 1980s. 

I realize that this is the second video I’ve posted featuring Mr. Cosby – must be a holdover of good feelings from watching the Cosby Show as a kid.

I originally came across this video on Eater and I’ve been waiting (im)patiently for someone to post it on YouTube.  Enjoy!

Friday fun – “I love Scotch”

Seems like a good morning to watch Will Ferrell doing his thing as Anchorman.

This one is also funny, though not as pertinent to this blog:
