When you are alone on an island, any beer is a good beer! This bottle was courtesy of Ian, who brought it out to me a couple of weeks ago as a birthday gift. Now that I have drank it, I believe that I am ready to leave this island and head back to the land of loved ones and beer. Farewell Race Rocks!
Despite being an ardent traditionalist, I actually rather like the unorthodox looking Six Grapes logo on the bottle. It says on the back of the bottle that the ‘Grape’ symbol classifies their port wines on a scale of one to six, “six denoting the lots with Vintage Port potential.” Like many other ports, it also claims to pair well with chocolate and blue cheese! That I don’t doubt, since most ports share many things in common.
Chances are, if you read my blog, or you drink beer in BC, you’ve heard of Lighthouse Brewing Company. If you have, you likely know about their Race Rocks beer. But did you know about the Race Rocks Lighthouse? I certainly didn’t, until just over a month ago, when a friend of a friend was in need of someone to take over from him as the Race Rocks eco-guardian for the month of February.
