    Perfect for next Saturday’s Christmas Gourmet.

  • Yes! Let us know which one you tried. John tried the Angastora Sour last night and it was interesting. The guys liked it!

  • First of all I want to say terrific blog!
    I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do
    not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing.
    I have had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in
    getting my ideas out there. I do enjoy writing however
    it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted simply just trying
    to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips?
