Barley wine is of course not a wine of any sorts. It's a strong beer with ABVs that

Our favorite pre-craft days beer was Miller High Life which uses the nickname of
"the Champagne of Beers". Aside from it being a marketing tool the slogan has
some truth since the beer was once available in small champagne bottles and made
to be more carbonated than most beers making it reminiscent of bubbly.
Hitachino's owl logo is quite distinctive and there's a story behind it. According to
owner Youichi kiuchi the name of the village where Hitachino is based is Kiuchi

decided to use an owl instead. Owls are associated with good luck in Japan.

alcohol industry an impressive thirty times and worked against Prohibition.
Ska Brewing in Colorado announced they will be packaging their 12 oz. beers

recommend you pick up a bottle of Vizcaya Black Rum from the Dominican
Republic It uses juices as the primary ingredient, not molasses and it makes a

There are about 150 calories in a 12-ounce serving of standard beer, the same
amount as those little pots of fruit yogurt dieters like so much.We know which is our
