The Drinkhacker Shopping List – 06.07.2013

It’s been a few weeks since our last one, but here’s the latest from the Shopping List…our regular look back at the best (and the worst) of the newest products we’ve reviewed. Most of these are readily available at your local retailer, but some may require visiting a specialty shop or deeper investigation.

The A-List – May 2013

A supplement to our regular Shopping Lists, The A-List recognizes those bottles we’ve had the privilege to review and find to be of highest quality (A+ to A- range). Unlike last month’s honor roll, this month the pickings weren’t as extensive. While the overall spirits category didn’t measure up to its usual standard of excellence, we had several great wines, a few truly outstanding bourbons and some incredibly tasty beers to enjoy while welcoming in summer.

The Drinkhacker Shopping List – 05.17.2013

It’s Friday once again and time for the Drinkhacker Shopping List, our look back at the best and the worst of products we’ve reviewed over the last few weeks. Plenty of wines to satisfy and a pretty intense campaign by Jim Beam with not one, but three new and high-quality limited expressions. We also had a pretty extensive tasting report from the Wines of Howell Mountain.

The A-List – April 2013

A supplement to our regular Shopping Lists, The A-List recognizes those bottles we’ve had the privilege to review and find to be of highest quality (A+ to A- range). Unlike last month’s diverse range of drinking options, the spirits and wine categories absolutely dominated the ratings in April. This month, we also had the opportunity to sample extensively from the offerings at the 2013 Berkeley Wine Festival and the San Francisco edition of the 2013 Whiskies of the World Expo. All in all, another great month of drinking in the books!

The Drinkhacker Shopping List – 04.26.2013

It’s Friday once again and time for the Drinkhacker Shopping List, our weekly look back at the best and the worst of products we’ve reviewed over the last few weeks. This week we’ve had some new gadgets to test, excellent new whiskey and less than excellent “mangria”. We’ve also covered tastings at the Whiskies of the World Expo in San Francisco and of the entire Budweiser stable of beers.

The A-List – March 2013

A supplement to our weekly Shopping List, The A-List recognizes those bottles we’ve had the privilege to review and find to be of highest quality (A+ to A- range). As you can see, there was a bit more diversity in our selections than in previous months, with tequilas, bourbons and beers all making their presence known in March. We also featured a preview tasting of the Jim Beam Signature Craft 12 Year, which is due out later this fall.
