Peaks and Pints Pilot Program: Barleywine On The Fly

Most people’s first step to a crisis, before washing their hands hands, is to raid the local grocery stores for perishable staples such as milk, bread, and toilet paper. Not Sean Jackson. The Parkway Tavern beer curator also went straight to breweries’ cellars. He filled every inch of his Tacoma beer bar with his favorite staple, barleywine, preparing for his annual John O’Gara Barley Wine Fest, culminating with the notorious Barley Wine Brunch. Unfortunately, as if the virus decimating your 401k and threatening your upcoming cruise wasn’t bad enough, now it’s coming for your beer. The Parkway Tavern has, obviously,

It’s National Black Forest Cake Day! The English name of this is famous cake is Black Forest Cake or Black Forest Gateau.

It is decorated with additional whipped cream, cherries and chocolate shavings. It is truly not a black forest cake unless the layers have been added with “kirschwasser,” which a clear spirit made with sour cherries. Many people think it is named after the Black Forest.

American history, yeah, you remember that — you paid attention in elementary school history class, you watched Gone With the Wind, yeah! OK, face it: Most of us don’t know our history at all. The story of America is full of accidents and improbabilities, grand ambitions and terrible tragedies, sudden changes and the slow march of time. In other words, the stuff of great literature. A good way to spend your self quarantine would be to open, or launch, Charles C. Mann’s exploration of American life before the arrival of European explorers in “1491,” Joseph J.

When one of Washington’s earliest cidermakers, Drew Zimmerman, retired, Finnriver farm owners Keith and Crystie Kisler transplanted 1,000 of his trees from Mount Vernon to their Chimacum farm, a heartwarming, if labor-intensive transition from old guard to new. A working farm, Finnriver houses rows of espaliered apple trees, fields of flowers, grazing animals, and on weekend nights, bands add to the merriment — that is until the virus shut down all social elements of the cidery, including the Cider Garden walk up window and to-go program.

Craft Beer Crosscut 3.15.20: Flight of Peanuts

March marks National Peanut Month, with National Peanut Lover’s Day celebrated today. Every day we want to celebrate one of the world’s most versatile and delicious legume. The peanut plant probably originated in Peru or Brazil in South America. No fossil records prove this, but people in South America made pottery in the shape of peanuts or decorated jars with peanuts as far back as 3,500 years ago. European explorers first discovered peanuts in Brazil. Peanuts were grown as far north as Mexico when the Spanish began their exploration of the new world.

Craft Beer Crosscut 3.14.20: Flight of Imperial Stouts

Share

In the Georgian-era, stout meant simply that: strong. Stouts were more potent versions of porter. Made with an extra helping of dark grains for added booze and body, stout quickly caught on, most famously in Ireland and Russia where the style received an extra punch for the journey. Today, those so-called imperial stouts reign stateside. Imperial stouts spell comfort, warming us on a cold, windy day. Before even taking our first sip, we can smell the roasted malt. Depending on the variety, we may get a touch of chocolate; maybe even vanilla or bourbon. The first sip steals our soul.

It’s Friday the 13th. Typically, we would offer some sort of scary-themed flight. Obviously, that isn’t a good idea right now. But, beer flights are our thing, so today we are offering Craft Beer Crosscut 3.13.20: Flight of Beer Flowers. Technically, hops are flowers, which means basically every beer has flowers in it — but we present a beer bouquet, beers with floral notes. Floral beers can get aggressive in an Aunt Martha-who’s-been-wearing-the-same-perfume-for-decades sort of way. It’s risky territory when it comes to flowers in the world of beer. We handpicked five floral brews, in a variety of styles, that
