Saturday Swig

Saturday SwigEvery week or as often as I remember to, I write a post called Saturday Swig (sometimes Sunday). It’s basically a post about what I have been drinking. I’m always up for trying something new, and it’s fun to write about. It is really as simple as that.


I enjoy beer. If you’d asked me years ago, I would have laughed in your face. Now I visit breweries every chance that I get when I’m traveling. I consider myself quite lucky to live in Northern California. Great breweries are only a quick hop, skip, and jump away. A few of my favorites: Russian River Brewing (Santa Rosa), Speakeasy (San Francisco), and North Coast (Fort Bragg).


I also love trying all varieties of wine. You’ll find more red wine than white in my wine rack, but it doesn’t mean I’m stuck on one or the other. There are plenty of wine tasting opportunities nearby – Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, and Livermore Valley… So many wineries, so little time!


I’d always dreamed of becoming a bartender, but I think I’ll leave it to the professionals. Occasionally I will post a concoction that I whip up, obviously inspired by someone else’s recipe.

All Other Drinks

When it comes to other beverages like juices and sodas, the more natural the better. At some point, I’ve even written a little bit about my root beer experiment.
