Clifton Inn makes a Beer Run
Tucker Yoder of the Clifton Inn teams up with Beer Run on a collaborative “Winter Beer Dinner” on Monday, December 3. Five inventive courses will be paired with unique beers inspired by winter from Bells, La Chouffe, Victory, 21st Amendment, and Liefmans breweries. Festivities and canapés begin at 6pm, with dinner seated at 7pm. For more information and to make reservations, visit cliftoninn.net.
Fresh off the bottling line
The long awaited 2011 Painted Red—a blend of Cabernet Franc, Syrah, and Malbec—and Painted White—a blend of Viognier, Rousanne, and Marsanne—wines from Blenheim Vineyards are finally bottled and ready, with label illustration by owner David Matthews.
The pre-sale of these wines runs through Sunday, December 2. This is the only opportunity to try these wines before they are available anywhere else, and at a discounted price. Each purchase also includes a limited edition, screen-printed, numbered handbill. Order online at blenheimvineyards.com, or purchase in the tasting room at the winery.
Wine and cheese, please

Keswick staff will lead a sensory adventure in the Barrel Room with cheeses from Caromont Farm and Keswick wines. The cost is $15 for wine club members and $20 for nonmembers. Walk-ins are accepted, or reservations can be made by calling Sandy at 294-3341.
