Forever Simcoe Double Dry Hopped Imperial India Pale Ale

The Forever Simcoe from Other half is a terrific DDHIIPA... the definitions get longer and longer. Drier than most beers from this brewery with good purity of hops. Floral and focused, rather than wildly juicy. Really good. 8.5% ABV. — a month ago

Prologue Propriétaire de Vignes Grand Cru Champagne Blend

The 17th century saw an explosion of beverage options in Europe. Spirits were coming into their own, flavoring with hops was finally the standard for beer, and chocolate, coffee, and tea began flowing from overseas. Wine was no longer the only kid on the block, and had to offer something new to stay on top.

Sparkles in wine due to second fermentations were nothing new, but it was the leap in English glassmaking technology in the 1620s with coal-firing that allowed them to be harnessed. No longer would there be constant risk of bottles exploding from pressure, and bubbles came ever more into vogue - much to the chagrin of the great advocates of still blanc de noirs Champagne, Dom Perignon and the Marquis de Saint-Evremond. But there was no holding back the tide, and by the end of the century sparkling Champagne was the drink of choice for high courts across Europe.

(This is adapted from notes for Le Dû’s Wines ‘History of Wine 1453AD-Present’ seminar, where this wine was poured.)
