Celebrity Happy Hour

HALL, WALT, and BACA Wines, a set of three, family-owned wineries located in Napa and Sonoma Counties, have announced the launch of another season of their celebrity Happy Hour series. The series rotates airing on three different social media platforms including Instagram and Facebook Live weekly on one of the respective brand channels. The Happy Hour series premiered on April 2, 2020, with over 200 shows produced through December 2021. 

“During the start of the pandemic in the Spring of 2020, we looked at different creative ways to keep our audiences engaged and keep wine conversations top of mind,” says Vintner Jennifer Brown. 

“Launching Season one of the series and really honing in on the lifestyle of wine with each of our guests allowed us to connect in new and compelling ways—our Club Members and fans sipped along with our show hosts and the guest, and it truly felt like we are all enjoying a casual Happy Hour experience together. The 2022 Season will continue to focus on producing dynamic and engaging shows that let our audience into our guests’ lives, ask questions in real time, and hear about new projects that each is working on.” 

Created by Vintner Kathryn Walt Hall and produced in-house, Happy Hour gives viewers an unscripted, behind-the-scenes peek into the lives of celebrities, artists, athletes, comedians, Broadway stars, authors, magicians, and more. Each episode aims to inspire creative conversations while sipping on a newly released HALL, WALT, or BACA wine.

Story Behind the Can

January 24th is National Beer Can Appreciation Day, which celebrates the historic and thirst-quenching day beer was first sold in cans! In celebration, here are a few of Elysian Brewing’s most iconic beer cans through the years including Salt & Seed, the hit summer seasonal rose released last year which features a photograph of an actual watermelon, and Dayglow, which showcases a tiger with laser beams shooting out of its eyes (yes, you read that right).

The in-house design team at Seattle-based craft brewery Elysian Brewing is known for its art-forward approach to beer can creation. The small design team is constantly pushing the boundaries and exploring how they can drive excitement and inspiration through label design, often through a mixed-medium and DIY creative take on label design.  

The creativity and imagination that goes into their labels are endless, leading to everything from sculptures, photography, and even shampoo being featured on product labels. In celebration of the upcoming holiday, the Elysian design team talked about their favorite labels throughout the years.

Dayglow IPA

Elysian Design Team: “What company proudly puts a tiger shooting laser beams out of its eyes on a bottle and pushes print? As ridiculous as the concept seems, the visual was a hit. Dayglow was the winner of the 2014 Beverage World Global Packaging Design Awards, paving the way and setting a standard for all future Elysian label designs to come.”

Mother Pig Fresh Hop IPA

Elysian Design TeamL “The art for Mother Pig was inspired by the hop picker at the farm that provided the hops for this IPA. The picker is a specialized machine the growers refer to as ‘Mother Pig’ as it herds up all the little piglets (Hop bines).”

Salt and Seed Watermelon Gose

Elysian Design Team: “This tongue-in-cheek ‘still life’ reveals itself as an impossible object; similar to a ship-in-bottle, it begs out consumers to question—’how the heck did they do that?’ The creation of this label was done in-house and all by hand for an elaborate, albeit lo-fi photoshoot.”

Thanks, It’s Cashmere Hazy IPA

Elysian Design Team: “This label was a first in our history in that it cleverly highlighted the hop used within its name, leaned into it, and turned it into a full-on story. It set a high bar for beers following its footsteps and reimagined what it means to write a beer description.”

Elysian Brewing Citrus Beer

With Citrus season in full swing through February, Josh Waldman, Brewmaster at Elysian Brewing, shared some insight on these beers and why they’re so popular.

The relationship between citrus and beer dates back centuries, from the use of bitter orange peels in Belgian styles to the discovery of New American Hop Varieties, such as orange zest-like Cascade hops, first commercially introduced all the way back in 1971. 

What makes a citrus beer so appealing? Waldman says it’s simple: “They offer refreshing and sprightly flavors for contemporary drinkers.” There’s no better example than Elysian’s Altered Contact:

  • Altered Contact Tart IPA – 6.8% ABV: Altered Contact rewires your perception of IPAs with its electrifyingly tart and juicy demeanor. Plug into galvanized notes of orange, tangerine, mango, and pineapple, There’s no turning back now.

If you’re interested in something that’s a bit less citrus-forward but still features tropical/fruity notes, be sure to check out the other two members of Elysian’s Contact Trilogy:

  • Contact Haze Hazy IPA – 6% ABV: This IPA is tangled chemistry of mild haze, low bitterness, and an explosion of hop aroma. On top of the typical citrus notes of hazy IPAs, Contact Haze features flavors and aromas of raspberry, currant, guava, and passion fruit.

Full Contact Imperial Hazy IPA – 8.8% ABV: Cloaked in a semi-translucent haze, an imposing presence beckons you to come closer. As you do, your nose opens to a tangent of wistful memories—peach season in the orchard, a tangerine tree on a hill, fresh honeydew cold from the fridge, and a vanilla cream soda in your hand.

New Port Cocktails

This February will be an exciting time for sports with the Beijing Winter Olympics being held from February 4-20, and the Super Bowl on February 13. Readers may be hosting watch parties, which tend to last for hours beyond the events themselves, so playing the long game when it comes to imbibing is a real pro-move. These low-ABV Port Cocktail ideas are all easy, convenient, and make great food pairings to the sports spreads we know and love.

Taylor Fladgate Chip Dry and Tonic Cans – (5.5% ABV; SRP $17.99 for a 4-pack of 250ml cans)

As a great low-ABV alternative to beer, this ready-to-drink Port cocktail is perfect right out of the can and delicious with Super Bowl favorites such as guac & chips, wings, and pizza.

Croft Pink and Tonic Cans – (5.5% ABV; SRP $17.99 for a 4-pack of 250ml cans)

Another low-ABV ready-to-drink cocktail, the newly launched Croft Pink and Tonic cans have bright citrus and red fruit flavors that are great with shrimp cocktail and the ketchup that goes along with pigs in a blanket.

Fonseca Bin 27 Porto Reserva  – (20% ABV, SRP $19.99)

Whether you’re parked on the couch watching Olympic ice hockey or ski jumping, the Bin 27 Martini is a ridiculously easy three-ingredient complement to brunch, nachos, and chili.

Combine two parts Bin 27, one part vodka, and a splash of cranberry juice into a mixing glass with ice and stir until chilled. Strain into a martini cocktail glass.

About Port Wine

Port Wine is wine only produced in the Douro region of Portugal. It’s a fortified wine, meaning it has spirits added to it, in this case, grape spirits. Port wine is thus heavier and sweeter than other wines and contains 19-20% alcohol compared to other wines, being 8-12% alcohol. 

Mendocino via Chalk Board Communications for use by 360 Magazine

Winter in Mendocino

Mendocino in the winter offers the best of both worlds. Atmospheric storms and misty mornings are balanced by the relatively mild temperatures that make this part of the world so magically lush. Plentiful mushrooms spring up at the bases of ancient trees and sweet Dungeness crab is pulled from icy waters and brought right to the table, to name two of the culinary delights that can be expected in this gorgeous, gloriously uncrowded corner of Northern California’s storied coast. It’s impossible not to feel centered beneath giant redwoods and while taking in sweeping views over the ocean, but that feeling can get to the next level with wellness treatments that are tailored to pamper and renew for a fresh start. Adventure is always on offer in this hiker’s paradise and for a twist, the world-famous Skunk Train has introduced a challenging new route for their pedal-powered Railbikes. Whether being intrepid or hunkering down, everyone will find something to love on a Mendocino winter escape.

To take advantage of those atmospheric storms, the breathtaking Inn at Newport Ranch offers a Winter Storm Watch package. Colder weather creates some of the most memorable skies and vistas on the Mendocino Coast, so it’s easy to be torn between exploring the craggy shoreline or staying warm in luxurious comfort at the Inn, maybe by taking a seat in the walk-in fireplace with a glass of Mendocino wine or curled up with a book in one of the resort’s many cozy nooks.  The Winter Storm Watch package includes a 60-minute hot rock massage for two, custom-created hot chocolate with delectable homemade marshmallows, dinner including foraged and winter garden bounty, and Happy Hour with “Dark and Stormy” cocktails and Mendocino wines and bites. The Inn at Newport Ranch is situated on 2,100 pristine private acres and boasts 50-mile panoramic views across the Pacific. Guests have exclusive access to the vast property that encompasses virgin redwood forests, grasslands, and beaches. Many guests opt to tour the acreage on horseback or book a private UTV tour–there is so much to see. Every amenity is on offer, from Ranch cuisine cooked from locally sourced or onsite garden-grown ingredients to sumptuously appointed guest rooms to the onsite Fireside Spa and a hot tub perched atop an old water tower. The Inn’s interior spaces are designed to enhance the natural beauty of the location, and each room is a bespoke masterpiece filled with handcrafted objects and fascinating items from the owner’s world travels. The Winter Storm Watch package is available on select dates through the end of March 2022.

The New Year brings new opportunities, and many will find it easier to embrace them after taking advantage of the picturesque Little River Inn‘s Wellness package. Available starting this month, the package for two is the perfect way to practice self-care and kick-off 2022 in a soul-nourishing manner. It includes a two-night stay in an Ocean View Room, a 90-minute Seaweed Body Scrub and Massage for two with Sue at the Inn, two hours of healing relaxation with Donna Call, Doctor of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, and admission for two to the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens to commune with nature. Family-owned for five generations, the historic inn has something for everyone, and is just steps from easy-to-hike Van Damme State Park and sheltered Van Damme State Beach. There is an Audubon-certified golf course where guests might encounter an elusive deer, regulation tennis courts, and an award-winning chef-driven restaurant with options for all that features carefully crafted and hearty California cuisine. The same menu can be enjoyed in-room, or at the local’s favorite–Ole’s Whale Watch Bar–famous for its views, where the tumultuous Pacific might show off the telltale spout of a migrating whale. The Inn has 65 rooms–from the modestly priced to the downright luxurious–all with views of the winter’s tempest-tossed ocean. The Wellness Package is available January 1, 2022 – January 31, 2022. The package, which includes lodging, begins at $1,246 for two (exclusive of tax and gratuity).

Eighteen Hundred Tequila × LV Raiders

1800® Tequila, the world’s most awarded tequila brand, announced its designation as the Official Tequila of the Las Vegas Raiders and Allegiant Stadium. The brand continues to support professional sports and the Hispanic community in Las Vegas and California by bringing the best taste in tequila to gamedays with the ultimate tailgate experience and signature cocktails for fans to enjoy.

As two heritage brands with award-winning credentials and roots in both Las Vegas and California, 1800 Tequila and the Las Vegas Raiders unite to bring the best taste in tequila to gamedays.

The 1800 Tequila tailgate will take place before the home game on January 9th and raise a celebratory glass to the union of Raiders fans from all over the world.

1800 Tequila also created two specialty cocktails to celebrate its partnership with the Las Vegas Raiders and Allegiant Stadium: the 1800 Mexican Mule Rusher (1800 Blanco, fresh lime juice, bitters, and ginger beer) and the 1800 Pirate Paloma (1800 Cristalino, light agave, grapefruit bitters, and soda water).  

“We’re thrilled to welcome fans to Allegiant Stadium as the Las Vegas Raiders’ Official Tequila Partner,” says Lander Otegui, SVP Marketing for Proximo Spirits. “Raider Nation is a diverse and ardent fan base, which reflects 1800 Tequila’s values of authenticity and community.

Named after the year of origin, 1800 Tequila has never wavered from its original formula and distillation process. Now, as the best taste in tequila, 1800 Tequila has reached category leadership through its liquid superiority, deep-rooted Mexican heritage, and culture-driving collaborations with musicians and artists.

Maestro Moon Phase Watch

The Maestro Moon Phase gives a new meaning to space & time. A moon phase aperture at six o’clock adds an element of otherworldly romance to this classic watch. Moon phase displays were common on clocks & pocket watches dating back to the renaissance period. Combining art & science, this feature demonstrates watchmaking technical mastery. Moon phase watches show the various phases of the moon, which has always provided time with an orientation. The moon was the first method of telling the passing of months.

A “moon phase” is the lighted area of the moon that is visible as it travels around the earth. Its journey is exactly 29 days, 12 hours, 44 minutes & 2.9 seconds.

To set your maestro moon phase watch, you must determine the date of the last full moon in the lunar cycle. Once you have the number of days, pull out the crown and twist counterclockwise. Turn once for each day elapsed.

While this measurement of time may be antiquated; it still represents historical craftsmanship & gives this maestro model a whimsical vintage appeal. The combined open balance wheel on this maestro watch reveals the “heart of the movement”. It is just a glimpse into the precision, quality, and technical assembly inside the refined design of a 39.5mm case.

Hopping Ghosts Figurine

Osaka Popstar presents “Hopping Ghosts” the new Ltd Ed. 8″ vinyl figure that comes complete with its own punk-rock theme song!

Chinese vampire mythology takes a spin through the mind of Osaka Popstar creator/frontman John Cafiero-who designed the figure and penned the accompanying single.

Each figure is 8-inches tall, with a removable scroll spell accessory, and comes packaged in a full-color art box with a free download card for the new single “Hopping Ghosts” by Osaka Popstar. The single features John Cafiero (vocals) backed by a lineup featuring Dennis Diken (The Smithereens) Drums, Sal Maida (Cracker, Milk & Cookies, Roxy Music) Bass, and Dean Rispler (The Dictators NYC, Voluptuous Horror of Karen Black) Guitar. Download also includes an alternate “animated instrumental” version (as heard in the animated promo for the new figure line).

What exactly is a Hopping Ghost? Known as Jiangshi in Chinese folklore and kyonshī in Japan, hopping ghosts or hopping vampires are basically a breed of zombie; reanimated corpses dressed in traditional garments from the Qing Dynasty. Rigor mortis has set in so they can only move around by hopping with their arms outstretched! They can’t see using traditional vision. Instead, they sense living creatures by their breath and seek to absorb the life force of the living. They can be stopped with a scroll to the forehead containing a spell written in a mix of ink and blood and led by Taoist priests using bells.
