Conventional wisdom states that white meat requires a white wine. But conventional wisdom, while occasionally correct, is also suuuuper boring. This year, think outside the white wine aisle for drinks to serve with your big white bird that are more tailored to your everyday tastes. If you like to drink…

…try Pinot Noir. Although a red wine, Pinot Noir can carry all the characteristics that make white wine a great companion to white meat, namely fruit notes and acidity. Open a bottle of the 2012 vintage of Redtree Pinot Noir, a light and fresh red wine with strong berry notes that’s priced under $10. Or compromise between red and white with a Rosé wine like E. Guigal’s Côtes du Rhône Rosé from 2013, a gorgeous wine with a rich bouquet and fruity flavors that are balanced by earthy and spicy notes.

A pumpkin spice beer would be a no-brainer here, but a richer stout or porter can be surprisingly light and sweet, and will pair well with dark gravies. For example, Wells and Young’s Ba…

Distinctly a better steak house at Twenty-One Steak-pueblo-colorado

Published

on

The steak-house: a consummate example of a relatively formulaic restaurant that can be tricky to get just right. Distinctly American, though somehow removed from the normal informality that American food tends to have, a steakhouse must choose a fine balance between elegance and grit.

The steak-house: a consummate example of a relatively formulaic restaurant that can be tricky to get just right. Distinctly American, though somehow removed from the normal informality that American food tends to have, a steakhouse must choose a fine balance between elegance and grit. With the pun fully intended, for as long as I’ve lived in Pueblo, a proper steakhouse is rare to be well-done.
At Twenty-One Steak, though, something unusual and quite delightful has occurred. Tucked away at Pueblo’s Historic Riverwalk, it’s going for the high-end steak market in Pueblo with prices more in line with steakhouses up north. Whether you’re looking for a fancy night or you simply want a great steak without a drive, a visit to Twenty-One Steak is definitely worth the money.

The first thing you may wish to know about the place is that if you’re on a budget and you want steak, you should definitely reserve the trip for a special occasion. The second thing is that the money you end up spending will be unquestionably worthwhile—every time. It is evident that there is not a detail of this restaurant that has been overlooked or unaccounted for. For instance, the sal…

Sweet and bold, Pueblo’s Fruit Bar is a fresh oasis

As the dog days of summer hazily make their way into southern Colorado, most of us (myself included) are counting down the days until cooler weather appears. But if I’ve learned anything in all my years as a Coloradan, it’s that summer never goes down without a fight, and often sticks around as long as she can.As the do…

You see, in hot weather such as the current wave we are in, the body and indeed the soul craves cold, refreshing and most importantly nutritious eats and treats. But w…

Say hello to the new trend in wine: pop-top cans

Published

on

It’s five o’clock somewhere, and you decide now’s the perfect time to pop the top on an adult beverage and chill in your favorite hangout spot: the backyard, the couch, a boat. You fill in the blank. The only thing wrong with this picture? You don’t like beer. But wait! What’s in your can isn’t beer at all, but wine…

It’s five o’clock somewhere, and you decide now’s the perfect time to pop the top on an adult beverage and chill in your favorite hangout spot: the backyard, the couch, a boat. You fill in the blank. The only thing wrong with this picture? You don’t like beer. But wait! What’s in your can isn’t beer at all, but wine.
Wine in can? It’s not as bizarre as it sounds. Wine has been available in cans for a long time, but no one drank it because it was gross. Recently, however, new canning technology has made canning wine easier. As a result, a mix of big conglomerate wine companies (Flip Flop, Barefoot, etc.) and small, family-run wineries have made the leap to canned wines with the goal of elevating this neglected segment of the market.
And it’s working: according to Nielsen, canned wine sales rose by 125.2 percent in 2016, prompting publications from Bloomberg to Wine Enthusiast to declare canned wine one of the top trends of 2017.
Why would anyone drink canned wine? For the same reason people drink canned beer: convenience. Cans are smaller and more portable than a bottle of wine, and they ca…
