For various reasons that I won't bore you with,
I haven't posted since the end of Restaurant Week. I've been pondering things to do lately
( I may have a few) and looking for a way to jump back into the blog.
Saturday's casual 5th Annual Beer & Wine tasting at Vignola fit the bill.
The event started at noon and I arrived around 1:30 having already taken pictures for the Forecaster at two earlier events. On hand were Zoe Brickley, cellar master from Jasper Hill creamery in Vermont. Jason Perkins from Allagash Brewing, David Kleban from Maine Beer Company and Eli Cayer from Urban Farm Fermentory. For the $25 per person entree, (as usual extremely frugal and a real value at Vignola) with 40 beers and 2 ciders plus roughly the same number of cheeses there were plenty of tastes to go around.

The sad thing about blogging events like this is that when you read about it you have a whole year to wait until the next one comes around.
