Bravely Done artist salute: Jason Ricci & New Blood

ricci-web

“Openly Gay” bodes well for the guy. Gay or not gay, we could care less. It’s the “openly” part we especially dig. Open. Honest. Stand-up. Without a net. Hey, you can’t go through life walking on egg-shells. (What kind of bland, forgettable, lowest-common-denominator beer would we end up churning out that way?) Anyway, on to the real issue: music.

Twilight Ale – Summertime Magic

Brewery Burger Perfection

Growing up in the Midwest, I consider the hamburger to be the quintessential American food. When done right it displays the best America has to offer. It is opportunity for its economy and accessibility to all. It is thrift in that its meat is often a grind of cuts that are too small for steaks and roasts. The rich flavored beef comes from cattle fed on grains and grasses grown on windswept prairies and raised by cowboys. The vegetable set, a sweet-hot onion, crisp lettuce and a juicy tart tomato, is a complex delight harvested by farmers who settled this land.

Mirror Mirror on the wall . . .

After a longer than anticipated wait, Mirror Mirror is, indeed, in the bottle and being dipped in black wax as I type and we even have photos to prove it. This first Reserve Series release of the year will be out in the market in just a couple of weeks.
