Last week I reported that I tried the 2013 Lyeth Meritage on our Thursday evening Hollywood Bowl picnic. Over the weekend we were at Trader Joe's and, so, I picked up a couple more bottles.

One in particular is to shop in categories that aren’t as popular, well known or highly scored as some others. There are a multitude of reasons a particular category m... Read More
The long-standing axiom of American advertising is sex sells products. This is certainly true in the American beer and spirits industry. Some beer companies have used beautiful horses and cute dogs to promote their brand, but they use sex to sell their products. Consider the images in your mind if I ask you to think of American beer advertisemen... Read More
