Clos Marguerite Rose ($11.50 NZD) and Passage Rock Chardonnay ($13 NZD).
Devon On The Wharf, Devonport NZ
I loved the location of this restaurant with the amazing view of downtown Auckland. I just wish their bar program would have been smarter than using tinted glasses to serve wine. This made our wine look disgusting and kept throwing me off every time I wanted to take a sip. Our wine looked liked an appletini and Kool-Aid for god’s sake!
Babalu Tapas & Tacos, Memphis TN
This sangria was on the watered down side, but the flavors were good enough. It was a decent size though.
Sugar Creek Brewing Co. in Charlotte.
A Taste of Carolina, Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT)
Was at the airport and had to try a local beer. This was pretty good, and was served nice and cold!
Jumbo shrimp in spicy sauce with fresh herbs, garlic, butter, and Creole seasonings. Served with French bread. $13
Boscos Restaurant & Brewing Co., Memphis TN
I liked this dish. The shrimp were a bit overcooked, but the sauce was SO tasty! It almost tasted like garlic shrimp tapas. Yum!
Boscos Golden Ale. $5.50
Lucid Kolsch, Soulful Ginger, The Kickdown, Dubbelspeak.
Memphis Made Brewing, Memphis TN
I liked this place. It was very bright and the staff were friendly. These beers were very different and I can’t say that I liked most of them. They were very strong in flavor – maybe too strong for my taste.
Crushed orange and cherry served with “Peabody Select” Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel, soda. $15
Lobby Bar at The Peabody, Memphis TN
I came to The Peabody to see the march of The Peabody ducks, hehe! I know it’s super cheesy, but I love this kind of stuff. I must say that it was kind of a cool experience. The build up was much cooler than the march itself, but it was nice to relax at The Lobby bar while waiting.
Ghost River Gold golden ale and buttery popcorn.
Memphis Riverboats, Memphis TN
This was a nice little snack to have during the riverboat tour. The popcorn was really salty so it was good to have the Ghost River beer to wash it down with.
Ghost River Brewery, Memphis TN
This place is just a short jaunt from downtown. The taproom is a pretty open space and they have a few tables on the patio and a yard where there’s a food truck. I liked their selection of beer and the servers were very nice.
16 oz. $5.25
Flying Saucer Draught Emporium, Memphis TN
This place is huge, but there weren’t many people there when we arrive late on a Sunday night. It looked pretty empty. They have a very extensive beer selection so it was really cool. I opted for a local beer and it was very tasty.
Coria Estates, Salem OR
This is what we drank during the 2017 solar eclipse under totality. It was great spending the morning at Coria Estates waiting for the eclipse. It was kinda cold, but we cuddled under a blanket to stay warm and drank plenty of mimosas and wine. 🙂
