Sips of the Week
Laurie toured the Troegs Brewery in Hershey, PA and talked to Brewery Manager Ed Yashinsky about their amazing beers.
Troegs Brewing Mad Elf, Hershey, PA $15.99 for 6pk
Brewery Notes: The Mad Elf is a cheerful creation to warm your heart and enlighten your tongue. The combination of cherries, honey, and chocolate malts delivers gentle fruits and subtle spices. Fermented and aged with a unique yeast, this ruby red beer has significant warming strength that underlies the pleasant character of this intriguing yet delicious Ale. The Mad Elf is a jolly and delicious beer for the holidays.
Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale, California $8.99 for 6pk
Brewery Notes: The start of Celebration season is a festive event. We can’t start brewing until the first fresh hops have arrived, but once they have the season is officially under way! First brewed in 1981, Celebration Ale is one of the earliest examples of an American-style IPA and one of the few hop-forward holiday beers. Famous for its intense citrus and pine aromas, Celebration is bold and intense, featuring Cascade, Centennial and Chinook hops—honoring everything we have at Sierra Nevada.
Laurie talked to Jancis Robinson, International Wine Writer and Co-Author of the World Atlas of Wine about the newly released 7th edition of this phenomenal wine book. Jancis Robinson is one of only a handful of wine writers with an international reputation. Her multi-award-winning books, including the hugely successful Oxford Companion to Wine (1994, 1999, 2006), and Wine Grapes (2012), are among the most important landmarks in wine literature. She writes daily for www.JancisRobinson.com, which has subscribers in 100 countries and was voted the first-ever Wine Website of the Year in the Louis Roederer International Wine Writers Awards 2010.
