    How To Drink Sake the Right Way

    How To Drink Sake the Right Way

    Sake is a delicious alcohol that’s usually referred to as Japanese rice wine. It’s created through fermenting rice that’s polished to remove the bran.

    Beer Styles That Pack a Punch

    American Barleywine typically ranges from 8–15% ABV; this style is characterized by fruity sweetness and deep complexity. They range in color from amber to very dark brown and are quite thick-bodied, in some cases almost syrupy. The alcohol is easily discerned with these beers.
