A Belgian Quad by recipe, but aging it in spirits barrels garners its own category: Central Coast Quad. A beer formulated to sit on the sweeter and malty side so that we could utilize it for blending. Turbinado brown sugar from Mexico and Belgian candi sugar add wonderful molasses flavors. It has a full body and lush texture with barrel expression all over this beer: toasted oak, coconut, leather and cigar tobacco.

Forsyth Cheese Feature: Germain L'Affine au Chablis

Forsyth Cheese Feature: 

Germain L'Affine au Chablis

Like the wine in which it is bathed, L’Affiné au Chablis is made in the Burgundy region of France, which is also home to the notorious stinker Epoisses. But if you have a stinky-cheese-phobic spouse like mine, you don’t have to worry about this cheese causing him to hide in the basement for the better part of the evening – L’Affiné au Chablis is much milder than Epoisses and lacks its odorous punch.

So what makes this cheese worth seeking? Its creaminess, of course – as with many soft-ripened cow’s-milk cheeses, L’Affiné au Chablis has a luxurious mouthfeel that’s hard to resist. I let my wheel sit on the counter for a couple of hours and then dug into it with a spoon. My mom was a little weirded out by this gesture, but I found it to be a perfectly appropriate way to consume the cheese. (It was delicious on a cracker, too, in case you agree with my mom.) The flavor of the Chablis is definitely present with each bite, but it was subtle enough to allow the creamy richness of the cheese to take center stage. The wine pairing should be pretty obvious. - Champagne and Cheese

Rated 98 from Robert Parker and Limted!

2012 Frank Family Patriarch Cabernet Sauvingon...$199.99
The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Patriarch is the soaring superstar of the vintage. Blueberry, incense, graphite and blackberry notes that are incredibly precise and intense jump from the glass of this inky/purple wine. It is full-bodied, opulent and has a broad, savory mouthfeel. This is outrageous Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink over the next two decades.
Rated 98/100 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

HiFi + LoFi Mixtape

A blend of fresh and barrel aged ales

Stone Brewing Stochasticity Project HiFi + LoFi Mixtape....$7.49 / 22oz
ABV: 8.8% 
IBUS: 70
A beer that pays homage to a centuries-old tradition of combining new beer with aged “stock ales.” Freshly brewed beers of the day often were very smoky and bitter tasting, and were blended with older beer that had mellowed with age to produce more drinkable libations. This modern brew will showcase our brewers’ talents by blending a stock ale aged more than three months in oak foudres (large wooden fermentation vessels) with a fresh version of the same beer to create a perfect harmony spanning end to end on the taste spectrum.
