There is an old familiar saying in the wine business: "It takes a lot of great beer to make great wine!" Winemakers, cellar workers, and grape pickers alike rarely (if ever) reach for a nice big glass of red wine in the middle of harvest. Wine is quite delicious, but not very refreshing on a hot summer day. The beverage of choice during harvest is BEER! Ice-cold, refreshing and thirst-quenching BEER! The beer in this bottle is a toast to our winemaking friends who work around the clock during harvest to make world-class wine right here in our own back yard! Cheers!

    well...i entered it as an APA in here, and that kinda sorta works, but after havin it, i don't know where the hell to put it, and apparently neither doea anyone else. pale ale on one site, light lager(?) on another, and oddly enough, a saison on untapped, which it really is not. session pale ale may be the closest. this is the kind of beer that keeps me appreciating subtlety, as much as i love big beers. at first the aroma seemed uninspired, but the nutty, slightly floral, slightly sweet taste above the light and refreshing body was nice right away. and a couple degrees later, the aroma followed suit. it's a very light, but very interesting beer. i appreciate what they were going for and will get it again if it becomes more readily available.
