Raise your hand if you love beer. (Go ahead, no one’s looking.) Now raise your hand if you love wine. Okay, put your hands down – you look silly.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to mix the two together? You know, kind of like an Arnold Palmer – for grown-ups.
Well, Figueroa Mountain Brewery and Margerum Wine Company -at the suggestion of Whole Foods- decided to do just that. (Add beer and wine together, that is.) The result is Figueroa Mountain’s Bière de Ménage.
How does it taste? I don’t know, but you’d better believe I’m going to find out. I like a little 7-Up in my beer (in Britain they call that a Shandy), it takes away the bitterness. Wine in my beer sounds even better.
And guess what? You can find out how it tastes too.
This Saturday night at Bar Rincon, right inside of Whole Foods Market in Oxnard, there will be a fabulous Bière de Ménage Release Party. I’m totally going. Would you care to join me?
Here are the details:
Biere de Menage Release Party
Whole Foods Market Oxnard
650 Town Center Dr, Oxnard, CA 93036
Saturday, May 17 | 6-8 pm
Oh yeah, come 6:01 p.m. (I like to be fashionably late) I’ll be celebrating Whole Foods Market’s first-ever beer/wine collaboration with Figueroa Mountain Brewery and Margerum Wine Co. You should come too. Enjoy a sample of Bière de Ménage and join in on the celebration with special food pairings and a festive atmosphere. (Seriously, you had me at beer + wine, but food pairings and a festive atmosphere? Who could say no?!)
I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking, “How rockin’ can a party at a supermarket be?”
Well, I’ve been to a few parties at Whole Foods, and let me tell you, they’re pretty rockin’. Look how much fun I had the last time I came to a party here:
How cool is that Airstream bar? (Answer: So cool!)
Also, the last time I was at a party at Bar Rincon I got to hang with these two cuties – the rep from Figueroa Mountain Brewing company and bartender Ken. My friend Kim might or might not have had an innocent little crush on one of them. (You might or might not be able to guess which one.)
Are you intrigued? You should be. If you’d like to hear more about how the wine/beer collaboration came about read this story here.
If you’d like to find out for yourself what a beer/wine combination tastes like join me this Saturday night, May 17th at Whole Foods Oxnard for some beer/wine, yummy food, and a serious good time.
