Peaks and Pints Monday Cider Flight: Boozy Ciders

Share

In 1982, Pommeau went legit. Up to that point, the beverage, officially classified as a mistelle, was a well-guarded secret among French farmers who produced it and wasn’t legally available to the public market. The farmers would use a system called mutage, a process in alcohol production that slows fermentation, on their fruitiest and tastiest apple juice. Apple brandy, known as Calvados in the Normandy region, was added to the juice to prevent it from losing its flavor. It’s then aged for a minimum of 18 months before being bottled as a Pommeau. The ratio is approximately two-parts of juice

Fancy Pants Sunday: Mac & Jack’s Stand Still

Share

You fancy Mac & Jack’s Stand Still Imperial Stout! Fancy Pants Sunday: Mac & Jack’s Stand Still In 1991, Mac Rankin started homebrewing and fell in love with the process. Two years later, he approached Jack Schropp with the possibility about starting a microbrewery in Washington state. Over the next nine months the first batches of the African Amber and Pale Ale were rolled out. After much success with the Amber and the Pale Ale, Mac & Jack’s Brewing Company finalized their African Amber, Blackcat Porter and Serengeti Wheat (their hefeweizen beer). These signature beers were

Peaks and Pints Pilot Program: Varietal Beer On The Fly

Share

If variety is the spice of life, then today’s Peaks & Pints to-go beer flight isn’t going to be very spicy. It IS damn tasty, though. Chris Baum, John Cope, Chad Roberts, David Paulson, and Karl Vanevenhoven opened Varietal Beer Co. in April 2018 in the Port of Sunnyside between Yakima and the Tri-Cities in Eastern Washington. The ownership all had a variety of dreams and life goals, but their Venn diagram centered on owning a brewery in the Yakima Valley. After earning the Enterprise Challenge held annually by the Yakima County Development Association and the Kittitas County Chamber of

Peaks and Pints Pilot Program: Vanilla Beer On The Fly

Share

Consider the vanilla bean. The Aztecs did. In addition to inventing long words ending in “atl” and awesome mythology, they had the patience to figure out how to cultivate vanilla — a particularly difficult flavor to come by. The pods are the fruit of an orchid plant (Vanilla planifolia), and they have to be cured and fermented over the course of about six months. If that weren’t involved enough, the high-maintenance orchid itself has to be pollinated by hand. Mexico continues to be a major producer, but bourbon vanilla pods from Madagascar are considered to be the Chanel No. 5

Peaks and Pints Pilot program: New IPA Year’s Eve On The Fly

Share

Ah, the sweet artificiality of the New Year — the reassurance of a clean calendar, of resolutions for self-improvement. And then you pick up the newspaper, and that pure artifice of the change of year, that vagarious demarcation of another arbitrary moment, is rendered meaningless by the inexorably continuing chains of events that know no boundaries defined by pages in a calendar. It’s no wonder revelers seem to work so hard trying to have a good time as the countdowns begin. Just like Larry Hagman of Dallas, the Dudley Moore of Arthur and Ray Miland of The Lost Weekend, most

Peaks and Pints Pilot Program: New Year’s Eve On the Fly

It is true that this New Year’s Eve will look different than most, as the coronavirus pandemic continues to keep us from partying like a typical Tacoma rage machine. But, you want to celebrate a little at home. But, you don’t want champagne, especially the cheap stuff that is going to give you one mean hangover, and chances are it could start before the night is through. You’re looking for something different this year. Peaks & Pints suggests you toast 2021 with two classic European alternatives to champagne. The “Champagne of Belgium,” otherwise known as lambic, is tangy and dry

Peaks and Pints Pilot Program: Coconut On The Fly

In the realm of desserts, pie is about as humble as it gets. There are no towers made of pie, like bakers craft out of macarons, none of those shocking flavor combinations — wasabi, curry — that come scooped on a cone. Peaks & Pints has coconut cream pie on the brain. It’s filled with down-home goodness with a hand-crimped crust and a thick layer of custard amped up with shredded coconut for a more intense flavor. Peaks and Pints doesn’t serve pie, but we do serve many coconut-flavored craft beers. We gathered a few for today’s to-go beer flight,

Passionfruit is known as lilikoi in Hawaii. This tart yet sweet fruit is nearly round, approximately 1.5- to 3-inches wide, with a tough outer skin.

Peaks and Pints Pilot Program: Barleywines On the Fly

Share

Despite its name, the barleywine is indeed a beer but at wine strength — ranging as low as 7-percent alcohol by volume in British versions and upward of 15 percent in American interpretations. Despite its name, barleywines aren’t made with tons of specialty grains, as one might assume. Historically, barleywines are brewed with pale malt, the same malts used for pale ales. Brewers achieve that rich caramel flavor that’s expected in barleywines by extending the length of the boil, which caramelizes the flavors and imparts that deep color. Yeast and hops vary between English-style and American-style barleywines, but either way,

Peaks and Pints Pilot Program: Boxing Day

Today is Dec. 26 — what Brits call Boxing Day. Sure, after Christmas you might want to strap on gloves and settle those unresolved familial scores, but Boxing Day isn’t about pugilism. And it has nothing to do with boxing up decorations or gifts you wish you didn’t get. Instead, the national holiday harks back to a bygone era like powdered wigs and pagers. Back in the days of the Empire, British citizens were split into hierarchies divided by arbitrary lines such as accent and lineage. Think Downton Abbey, in which the bottom floor of a huge house split two
