Flashback: Shavnabada Street Tasting

It's good to have friends in high places @orshi.kiss when life has got you down you better believe Georgian wines are there to save your ass. And nothing taste better then an improved wine tasting on the street and everything illegal tastes better just ask @goutlife. The 2004 Shavnabada #Mtsvane lifted my mind out of the gutter. Macerated in #Qvevri for 5 months then aged in qvevri for 11 years before bottling, it's beautiful. The 2009 Shavnabada #Saperavi is liquid earth, perfect for a bloody and very juicy piece of meat. #wine #georgianwine #shavnabadamonastery #winesofgeorgia #drivebywinetasting #BlueDanubewine #winesofinstagram #skincontact #vivino #delectableapp @bluedanubewine #losangeles

Flashback: Shavnabada Street Tasting

A damn good beer by @sevvies

Being an adult looks stressful. That’s why I decided to toast to all you miserable fucks driving back and forth on Sunset Blvd with this most delicious creation by Ryan Severy @sevvies he is the Director of Liquid Bread @silverlakewine I’m sure you know him and I’m sure he’s poured more wine into your glass than most of you would care to admit. He’s also friendly and not bad looking. Ryan set out to make a white ale brewed with coriander, orange peel, & chamomile. But yeast has another plan and took this in another direction, sour. But not a full on Sour. However, this is more of a partial sour. And as the beer warmed the sour element softened and became much more subtle and I started getting some baked lemon and soft spiciness. I decided to snack. Look, I’m a hungry man. I had salty chips and made heavily limed guacamole. Perfect pairing. And smoked half a Davidoff cigarillo which also worked well. I’m not sure how many bottles Ryan has left but it would be worth it to bother him about it. Someone please back Ryan so he is brewing beer full time soon. I’m thirsty.
