“I need a drink and preferably a hot one. Can you recommend somewhere close by? I’m staying here at the Inn. Name’s Cecil T. Wulfe.”
“Certainly Mr. Wulfe. My favorite and I’m a local, is the White Fang located right around the corner. It’s easy to miss because it’s on a side street but you’ll see the chimney spewing smoke from the fire inside and the door is red.”
Grilled cheese has been a popular lunch choice for generations, and the variations on this simple sandwich abound, depending on where you are in the world. While American or cheddar cheese are the popular choice for this treat in the United States, some parts of Europe prefer Swiss or Gouda cheese to fill their bread slices.
As small, local artisan creameries across the country continue to gain popularity, many cheese lovers are looking to these small shops for the hottest new trends in culinary delights (not to mention the least expected). That’s what makes cheese and beer pairings such a novel and fun concept.
Truthfully I don't drink a lot of beer. But when I do... Really, when I do drink beer I like variety and simplicity. So I've never attempted to brew my own. It's just more reliable and way cheaper to buy a bottle and see if I like it without having to wait a few weeks to be disappointed by my own lack of brewing skills.

It's officially known as the WNC Cheese Trail - or the Western North Carolina Cheese Trail. What makes it special to us is that it's right in our back yard, making it easily accessible (for us anyhow).
Legend has it that an unknown Arab nomad accidentally discovered cheese. He embarked upon a horseback journey across the desert filled with a saddlebag of milk. When he stopped to rest, the milk had separated into curds and whey. The logical explanation to this occurrence is the functioning of rennin. The bacteria were present in the saddlebag, which was made from the stomach of a young animal.
According to a new study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, red wine consumption may improve the heart health of people with type 2 diabetes.

The beginning of October brings with it images of falling leaves, warm drinks and pumpkin-carving. But many adults look forward to the month for a very particular reason: beer. Cities around the world ring in the height of fall by hosting their own Oktoberfests, mirrored after the longstanding German festival.

govino's drinkware has always been a great solution for use outdoors, by the pool, or anywhere using real glass might not be advisable. But it required hand washing. Govino has just announced its 'dishwasher safe' collection that can (obviously) be put into the dishwasher for cleaning.
