Vail Valley's Newest Brewery - Vail Brewing Company

Vail Brewing Company
October 17, 2016

We here at Boone’s are so excited to bring another local brewery into our tasting room and shelves. The Vail Valley’s own Vail Brewing Company came down to our tasting room on Friday, October 14th, 2016. These guys just recently started bottling their brews, and it would so utterly wrong not to have them in our store.

We tasted the Gourd Range Pumpkin Ale, Gore Creek IPA, Hot Mess Blonde, and their stout, Brother from another Udder. So we thought we’d share our thoughts!

greet the warm weather with a Rosé

Rosé wines are an ideal pick for these warm evenings that have arrived. These wines are highly versatile and great with any bbq or picnic.  

Rosé wines are generally made from red grapes. It depends on the country, but the popular grape varieties are Grenache, Syrah, Pinot Noir, Sangiovese and Cinsault. Their pink color depends on the amount of time the grape skin stays in contact with the juice. The longer the grape skins are left sitting on the wine, the darker the color of the finished rosé.
