So I did not make a Wuss-Out Wednesday post and now it is late (for me) on Non-Sequitur Thursday (and my predictive text function seems to have forgotten everything I have ever typed in, what’s that all about?). I thought I might try a Throw Not Very Far Back Thursday and share a couple of pictures of tastings we recently attended in the area.
This is a picture from a 1911 Hard Cider tasting at Beer Belly Bob’s in Ilion. Unfortunately, I cannot find my notes from the tasting. I know we tried three kinds, liked them all, and purchased one. We hope to visit 1911 in Lafayette, NY (don’t ask me how I remembered that) sometime in the future.
Here are Elisha and Danielle, pouring Beringer Wine at a tasting at Valley Wine and Liquor in Herkimer. Danielle is a regular rep at these things, and Elisha was a new trainee. We were happy to see Danielle again and to meet Elisha. The wine was pretty good, too. We bought a bottle of Red Blend Aged in Bourbon Barrels.
Facebook pages usually keep us up to date on local tastings. I just love to try before I buy.
Route 51 Beer Belly Bob’s Discount Beverages is located at 70 Otsego St., Ilion, NY. Valley Wine and Liquor is located at 326 S. Caroline St., Herkimer. You can find both on Facebook.
So I guess I haven’t said much about the tastings or the businesses. I hope nonetheless this will be an acceptable post. And tomorrow is Lame Post Friday! Won’t that be nice?
