So excited about the Crush Wine Festival! The Northampton edition happens on June 14, and the Greater Boston edition comes to Marshfield Fairgrounds on July 26. I sat down with Kate Levin this morning to get all the details. More
With Memorial Day Weekend on the horizon–and gorgeous weather predicted–you need to know what to drink. Jerry Prial of Gerard Wine Company will tell you. He joined me in studio this morning, and we talked a lot about wine. More
Ben & Jerry’s? More like Beer & Jerry’s. As if anyone needed another reason to think about ice cream and beer in the same thought, the Vermont company will now be concocting a dessert beer.
NERAX, the New England Real Ale eXhibition, kicks off its 18th annual festival tonight, bringing 100+ cask conditioned beers and ciders to South Boston over the course of four days. More
