Terminator turns 25!

By McMenamin's Brewers | November 18, 2010 |

Please join us at any of our pubs to celebrate a quarter of a century traveled for Terminator Stout, which turns 25 years old on Friday, November 19, 2010.

photoTerminator’s origins can be traced to the Hillsdale Brewery & Public House, most likely brewed on a blustery, cold day not unlike today.

Any Port In A Storm
A Port-Style Wine Tasting at Edgefield

Thursday, November 11, 2010

portsWhat does “any port in a storm” mean, exactly?

It was a phrase used by the Portuguese men and women who brought us the fortified style of wine called port. Traditionally, the Portuguese made their living from fishing the tumultuous Atlantic seas. When the weather made it difficult to continue, they would search for the nearest port in which to take refuge, where they would be welcomed with a glass of warming port and a hearty bite to eat.
