Update – Not wanting to leave out Blue Mountain Brewery, I just received this email (I like the “Hoppy” Holidays”) –
Hoppy Holidays everyone!
A few Blue Mountain Brewery news bits as we head into the final stretch of ’08:
First and very exciting, our new experimental beer is hitting the taps this Monday (yup, we’ll be open Monday 12/22 and Monday 12/29). We’ve given up naming this behemoth and are simply calling it by its descriptor–Double Barrel-Aged Chocolate Cherry Bourbon Imperial Stout. In a nutshell it’s Dark Hollow post-bourbon barrels aged in Pollack Vineyards Pinot Noir barrels with 20#s of cherries and 7#s of Mexican Cocoa nibs per barrel (nibs are the fermented, roasted cacao bean that is used to make chocolate). It’s liquid happiness, and as it tastes like drinking a Godiva bar, this heady brew is perfect for the season. To take it a step further, we’re serving it from the nitrogen tap!
And we’re still selling 750s of Dark Hollow batch #4, so come one by this weekend for a bottle and all your last-minute shopping swag (gift cards, hats, Ts, growlers, cases, kegs, etc.)

Jim – Where’s the image to print for the King Family Vineyards tasting? I’m not seeing it anywhere on the page.
I’ll get that up shortly … and fix the typo as well.
I’m looking for contact information for Heidi Sonen and thought you might be able to help. Heidi did a wonderful weather program for me at the Ivy Creek Natural Area years ago and I was hoping she would help out with the climate and weather training for a new local group called the Rivanna Master Naturalists. Just looking for a short morning program in March.
If you know her contact info I would love to have it or maybe you could just forward this message with my email to her.
Thanks so much,
whoops forgot to send the website. It’s
