Wine 101: What wines are better with age and how to properly store them

Not long after being bitten by the wine bug I developed a desire to have an awe-inspiring wine cellar. A dark, quiet, underground sanctuary where I could showcase my collection of world class wines and share them with friends. Nearly forty years later, and having never won the lottery, I’m still dreaming of that cellar.

Wine 101: How to properly open and pour a bottle of wine

So, you are hosting, but your knowledge of opening and serving wine is limited.

Now, you are entertaining someone you are trying to impress – a date perhaps, or a friend, or a business associate.

Behind the scenes at Unibroue: A beer lover's dream adventure

Prior to this trip, I had minimal exposure to Unibroue. My first experience drinking their beer was years back. I grabbed a bottle of La Fin du Monde at a hole-in-the-wall pub in Pittsburgh simply because the label appealed to me and their unflushed taps seemed unappetizing. The second, snagging a bottle of À Tout le Monde just to tickle my mid-90’s Megadeth affinity with zero intent to consume. The bottle’s sole purpose was to sit on my shelf, more a piece of art or homage.
