Local Brewers Discuss Latest Trends In Craft Beer

Thank you for another great show. I love this subject. I am currently working for San Pasqual Winery here in San Diego. Karl Strauss used our Port wine barrels to make a beer they called Parrot in a Palm tree. I got to try it at our wine pairing event a few weeks ago here at our tasting room in La Mesa. The beer is rich & sweet with a great finish. This beer went very good with many of the dishes Chef Jeff from Terra restaurant served at the event. I am looking forward to tasting the new beers that are coming out of our local San Diego breweries.

Wine & Chocolate Pairing -- 11/19/10 at Alchemy of the Hearth - CLOSED

I have recently had a paring experience that surprised me at San Pasqual Winery La Mesa Tasting room. There was an event with a San Diego chef paring their wines with yummy dishes. The surprise was their Summer Vine Passion fruit - Hibiscus - Raspberry - Habanero wine paired with a Chocolate Crape with a cream filling & strawberry sauce.

Talk about WOW! It was the high lite of the parings. Chocolate with hot spicy.

All About Wine

I loved the show today. I love everything about wine. I’ve even created a product to transport wine safely called The Wine Bearer and I’m working for San Pasqual Winery here in San Diego. Your guests were talking about sparkling wine and what to pair it with. We have a sparkling Passion Fruit Wine as well as a unique wine that is passion fruit, hibiscus, raspberry and habanero. San Pasqual had an event at the La Mesa tasting room where Chef Jeff, from Terra restaurant, paired the Passion Fruit Habanero wine with a chocolate crepe with a light cream filling that was amazing. The two flavors were such an amazing complement to each other. I had never thought of combining sweet with spicy hot, but was happily surprised at how good the two opposite flavors work together. I think you should do more shows about wine as they seem to have a lot of interest. I really enjoyed your show and would like to hear more on this topic.

Thank you,
Darrell Grant
