HAD 113: Wine from Grape to Bottle
Another wine episode. . . why are there grapes here then? I typically don’t bother with it until it’s already fermented, or at all. We can use this as a learning opportunity, and talk about how wine gets made and it’s process from vine to bottle. So let's keep those grapes, by the time we’re done it should be wine so you can Have a Drink.

WHAT WE’RE DRINKING:
Beverage: Water but will be having bourbon after the show (been 10 months, folks)
Wine: American Concord
Brewery: Cedar Creek Vineyards
Brewery’s description: A fresh, light and fruity sweet wine. Serve with aged cheese, desserts, or enjoy by itself. A native North American grape used by settlers to make preserves and wines, Concord is often referred to as America's dessert wine. Concord is our sweetest wine variety.
Style: Imperial IPA
Beer Advocate Score:4.46/5
Brewery’s description: Starting with six different hop varietals added to the brew kettle & culminating with a massive dry-hop addition of Simcoe hops, Bell's Hopslam Ale possesses the most complex hopping schedule in the Bell's repertoire. Selected specifically because of their aromatic qualities, these Pacific Northwest varieties contribute a pungent blend of grapefruit, stone fruit, and floral notes. A generous malt bill and a solid dollop of honey provide just enough body to keep the balance in check, resulting in a remarkably drinkable rendition of the Double India Pale Ale style.
