I have been interested in family history for decades. The hobby has led me in many directions and I’ve found some good stories along that way. Just like the evolution of my genealogical research abilities, my knowledge of good alcohol has evolved as well. With the explosion of craft breweries and wineries across the area, I’ve become more adventurous in my beverage choices. This blog will tell the stories of my ancestors and of the unique and interesting beverages that cross my path.
