A Toast to Sea Inspired Libations

Coastal living invokes thoughts of bathing in the sun and times spent swimming in the surf of ocean water.  Standing in line for ice cream, staying up late to admire the stars and wearing a hat most days to shade from the sun are all part and parcel of summer on Nantucket.  However, not all coastal conditions are created equal and neither are the libations that come from them. Sea-shanty worthy drinks are an expression of their watery sources, no matter how far and distant in between.  Take a liquid adventure as you discover with Advanced Sommelier Jenny Benzie a handful of libations worthy of your next oceanic experience. AN ORGANIC OCEAN You are what you eat, or drink in this case, and wouldn’t it be nice to know that you are putting only the best ingredients in your body while also being eco-friendly.

Rosé After Labor Day: After Summer Sippers

DRINK PINK FOR THE HOLIDAYS Rosé isn’t just about warm sultry summer days on sunny beaches anymore. Also sometimes referred to as ‘Nantucket Water,’ this refreshing category of wine, as an alternative to red or white, has become part of the glamorous lifestyle associated with life on our magical island. Who says any of this has to end now that we are into fall? Definitely not us on this end! As the sun begins to set a little sooner in the evening and the night air becomes crisp and worthy of your favorite cozy zip sweatshirt, now is the time to start the transition to fall weather drinking rosés that offer a little more substance than your light and easy-drinking summer sipper.

Beer Me Up, Benzie!

CAPTAIN KIRK’S BEER BLOG, STARDATE 201605.26 This weekend, we choose to celebrate the culture and community of craft brewers in America. Many of these organizations began as home brewers who were looking to make something a little better or different than what was being offered from the mass production breweries. Hobbyists turned business owners, craft brewers can now be found in all pockets of the United States. Here’s a cross-country examination of a few of our American favorites: Peak Organic Brewing Company: Fresh Cut 6 pack, 12 oz. bottles Brewed in Portland, ME, Peak is a craft brewing company dedicated to making delicious beer using local, artisan and organic ingredients. Fresh Cut is a dry-hopped pilsner. Dry hopping is a way to increase hoppy aromas by adding the hops after fermentation. Chinook, Citra and Centennial hops, typically used to craft an American Style IPA, provide aromas of citrus, grass and spice. Though the front palate is loud with IPA qualities, the finish...Read More >
