It’s a golden October afternoon in Burgundy—a few weeks after harvest. Most of the growers here picked their grapes earlier than usual this year.
I’ve always been a bit curious that chicken isn’t more of a breakfast protein.
Love them or hate them—and plenty of brewers hate them—beer rating platforms like RateBeer, BeerAdvocate, and Untappd are an important part of the craft beer world. As the number of breweries has exploded to over 7,000 in the United States alone, and the number of beers each brewery makes has also evolved to include ever-expanding lineups, keeping track of the beer scene would be virtually impossible without some sort of searchable digital guide at your fingertips.
One of the worst bait-and-switches of my life came when I ordered a mimosa and received a glass of half $4 pinot grigio and half apple cider, served lukewarm. I can still taste the stale disappointment on my tongue, a flavor curdling under the false pretenses of a bubbly citrus. This wasn’t a mimosa, this was just drinking before 11. Whether it’s high prices or substitute ingredients, people are taking weird liberties with mimosas.
