A trio of beers from Trillium Brewing Company:

FORT POINT PALE ALE:

American pale ale that has light, crisp, malt character and an abundance of hop-derived aromatics and flavors from the use of Citra and Columbus. The nose is fresh citrus, tropical fruit, and peach. Flavors of pineapple and mango mix with dank notes of zesty citrus and fresh pine needles. Smooth mouthfeel, gentle bitterness, and dry finish.

ABV: 6.6 %

MALT: American 2-row Barley, White Wheat, C-15, Dextrine

HOPS: Citra, Columbus

LAUNCH BEER PALE ALE:

Hazy golden in appearance and light in body, this pale ale bursts with floral hop aromatics of honeysuckle and passion fruit. Featuring Mosaic/Citra in the dry hop and a crisp Pilsner malt backbone, Launch Beer has flavors of stone fruit and citrus with a sessionable bitterness.

ABV: 5.7%

MALT: Pilsner, White Wheat, Carapils, C-15, Flaked Oats

HOPS: Mosaic, Citra, Columbus

STILLINGS STREET IPA:

Stillings Street is hazy, pale orange in appearance with aromatic qualities of kiwi, white grape and lemongrass. Flavors of citrus zest, pineapple and cantaloupe are accentuated with crisp malt character, mild bitterness, and a soft, effervescent mouthfeel.

ABV: 7.2%

MALT: American 2-row Barley, White Wheat, C-15, Dextrine, Dextrose

HOPS: Nelson Sauvin, Columbus

A customer came back from a trip abroad with a newfound love of Pisco, and in specific — the Pisco Sour.

We don’t have Pisco at the restaurant where I work, but that didn’t stop me from making her an egg white sour with Añejo tequila.

The drink was a hit and she cleverly named it the Anita Pisco — “I need a Pisco.” And her name is a Anita Paladino. And there’s still no tequila in the drink, but she and I still think it’s funny to call it that.

I’m sure it’s slightly annoying for my co-workers that I have these one-off drinks for a dozen different regulars… but my customers like it that I remember their drinks, and when it’s something specific to them (like his this Anita Pisco) — it’s even more of a memorable visit to the bar. Plus we’re only open five days a week and I’m usually there most every night, which is surely how all this arose in the first place.

Regardless, I like slinging specialty drinks and it’s always a treat to have fun and enthusiastic customers.

This was actually quite good, and I intend to get another bottle for this Sunday’s episode.

Winemaker’s notes:

Don’t let this wine catch you unaware, The Walking Dead Cabernet Sauvignon opens with notes of blackberry with nutmeg and mocha spices. This full-bodied wine reveals flavors of dark cherries and currants which pool on the palate, giving way to notes of mocha and spice. Fine, chocolaty tannins hold the long smooth finish.

This website, Lot 18 has individual Rick, Darryl & Negan bottles.

Wikipedia:

Jean Harlow (born Harlean Harlow Carpenter; March 3, 1911 – June 7, 1937) was an American film actress and sex symbol of the 1930s.[1]

After being signed by director Howard Hughes, Harlow’s first major appearance was in Hell’s Angels (1930), followed by a series of critically unsuccessful films, before signing with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer in 1932. Harlow became a leading lady for MGM, starring in a string of hit films including Red Dust (1932), Dinner at Eight (1933), Reckless (1935) and Suzy (1936). Among her frequent co-stars were William Powell, Spencer Tracy and, in six films, Clark Gable.

Harlow’s popularity rivaled and soon surpassed that of her MGM colleagues Joan Crawford and Norma Shearer. She had become one of the biggest movie stars in the world by the late 1930s, often nicknamed the “Blond Bombshell” and the “Platinum Blonde”, and popular for her “Laughing Vamp” movie persona.

She died during the filming of Saratoga in 1937 at the age of 26. The film was completed using doubles and released a little over a month after Harlow’s death. The American Film Institute ranked her as the 22nd greatest female star in Hollywood history.
From The Guardian:

In Victor Fleming’s 1932 jungle melodrama, Red Dust, Harlow’s stranded hooker sidles up to rubber plantation bigwig Clark Gable and asks, “Mind if I get drunk with you?” Something of a party girl off-screen, the Blonde Bombshell was supposedly fond of this martini created in her honour. Best served chilled, with a lemon peel garnish.

I’ve only tasted Tia Maria once, but I didn’t drink it like Cary Grant.

Some “Old Hollywood” stars and starlets had drinks invented and named after them as a tribute during and after their heydays. But then there are the actors and actresses with drinks named after them because that’s actually what they drank.

And apparently Cary Grant drank vodka and Tia Maria with a squeeze of lime.

I’m not going to knock it til I try it, but the idea of coffee and citrus did initially strike me as strange.

Of course, there’s nothing new under the sun, as a quick Google search always proves.

The following recipe for the Cary Grant cocktail comes from a post on the blog Mix That Drink.

Cary Grant was born Jan. 18, 1904.

Ingredients

  • Vodka
  • Tia Maria
  • Lime wedge garnish

Preparation

  • Combine equal parts vodka and Tia Maria in a rocks glass with ice. Garnish with a lime wedge that’s been squeezed for the juice and stirred into the drink.

Some recipes online call for “the juice of 1 lime” in the cocktail, but I have to imagine it’s the juice from the garnish and not a full ounce or so of lime juice.
