Boont Amber Ale – This amber ale boasts hints of sun toasted grain, toffee, and fruity esters. Beer Advocate Score: 86 ABV: 5.8% (12 oz can)

Summer Solstice Seasonal Ale – A slightly sweet, malty session beer with a creamy mouth feel and clean finish. Beer Advocate Score: 83 ABV: 5% (12 oz can)

Hop Ottin IPA – This American IPA is brewed and dry-hopped with copious amounts of Columbus and Cascade. This beer is a showcase of the bright citrusy aromas, bold grapefruit and pine-like flavors, and resiny bitterness that hop heads crave. Beer Advcate Score: 90 ABV: 7% (12 oz can)

Wild Turkey Bourbon Barrel Stout – Aged for three months in Wild Turkey® Bourbon barrels, this luxurious stout has a deep ebony hue and a beautiful mahogany head. The woody, vanilla-like notes imparted by the barrels mingle with aromas of fresh baked bread, toffee, and espresso and envelop the rich chocolate and roasted barley flavors with a fine bourbon character. Beer Advocate Score: 85 ABV: 6.9% (22oz bomber)

Pinchy Jeek Barl – Aged for 6 months in Wild Turkey® barrels, this bourbon barrel-aged pumpkin ale is pleasantly creamy with a silky body and sweet caramel flavor. Beer Advocate Score: 82 ABV: 8.5% (22 oz bomber)

Huge Arker – True to its Boontling moniker, “Huge Arker” is a massive force of nature that detonates on your tongue. After primary fermentation, the beer is aged in Wild Turkey® Bourbon barrels until it fully matures. The deep mahogany color is evocative of the opulence to follow. Dark luscious aromas of burnished oak mingle with candy sugar, bourbon and hearth-baked bread. Beer Advocate Score: 90 ABV: 13.5%

Repost: What The Heck Is Beaujolais Nouveau?

This is a repost from November of 2010.  For those of you who might be asking “What the heck is Beaujolais Nouveau?”.  In 2012, the article is still relevant.   Join me at The Golden Lion Cafe for a great experience accompanied again by Will Pearsall.

Beaujolais Nouveau Night 2010 is almost here! We have been talking about it for months, which may lead the uninitiated to pose the question “What The Heck Is Beaujolais Nouveau?” The short story? Beaujolais Nouveau Night is a Golden Lion tradition of over 15 years. We join the worldwide party on the third Thursday of November every year. For almost as long, the entertainment has been provided by the incomparable Will Pearsall. Join us next Thursday for a great party with great food!

The long story? At one past midnight on the third Thursday of each November, from little villages and towns like Romanèche-Thorins, over a million cases of Beaujolais Nouveau begin their journey through a sleeping France to Paris for immediate shipment to all parts of the world. Banners proclaim the good news: Le Beaujolais Nouveau est arrivé! “The New Beaujolais has arrived!” One of the most frivolous and animated rituals in the wine world has begun.

By the time it is over, over 65 million bottles, nearly half of the region’s total annual production, will be distributed and drunk around the world. It has become a worldwide race to be the first to serve to this new wine of the harvest. In doing so, it has been carried by motorcycle, balloon, truck, helicopter, Concorde jet, elephant, runners and rickshaws to get it to its final destination. It is amazing to realize that just weeks before this wine was a cluster of grapes in a growers vineyard. But by an expeditious harvest, a rapid fermentation, and a speedy bottling, all is ready at the midnight hour. By French law, Beaujolais Nouveau is to be released no earlier than the third Thursday of November.

Beaujolais Nouveau began as a local phenomenon in the local bars, cafes, and bistros of Beaujolais and Lyons. Each fall the new Beaujolais would arrive with much fanfare. In pitchers filled from the growers barrels, wine was drunk by an eager population. It was wine made fast to drink while the better Beaujolais was taking a more leisurely course.

Beaujolais Nouveau is as about as close to white wine as a red wine can get. Due to the way it is made -the must is pressed early after only three days- the phenolic compounds, in particular the astringent tannins, normally found in red wines, isn’t there, leaving an easy to drink, fruity wine. This, coupled with the fact that it tastes best when chilled, makes for a festive wine to be gulped rather than sipped, enjoyed in high spirits rather than critiqued. As a side note, it makes a great transitional wine for anyone wanting to move from white to red wines.

The race from grape to glass may be silly, but half the fun is knowing that on the same night, in homes, restaurants,cafes, pubs, bars and bistros around the world, the same celebration is taking place.

Join me and be part of the show at the Palm Coast Seafood Festival!

Join me on stage at the Palm Coast Seafood Festival (details below).   I will be playing the role of the nightclub bartender (I think I was typecast).   *Please note, there will be no actual drinking or even liquid in the cups.  Ice and /or water on a dance stage is not as fun as you might think*
Get in touch with me and/or Vern or simply show up as stated below.   Let’s show Palm Coast how to party!


This is an open invitation to you and all of your friends that like to dance. We are looking for party goers able to dance as if you are at a nightclub or dance party. (Just open dancing, no practice, rehearsals or formal experience neccessary)

We are creating a nightclub atmosphere for a show onstage next Saturday, November 5th at 4:30 pm at The Palm Coast Seafood Festival.

We are asking all participants to arrive wearing black & white clothing and dance on stage for about an hour for artist Mark E Walker of C+C Music Factory *Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now) video and Stevie B.* Spring Love fame.

Mark is performing on the main stage at 5pm and we are going to fill up the stage with people to create our “nightclub”. Songs will be pop and hip hop like Chris Brown, Taio Cruz, C+C Music Factory, Usher etc. and of course Mark’s originals.

They’re predicting a decent sized crowd at the show and we’re trying to fill the stage up with people that like to dance.

Send this info out to anyone online that just wants to get up on stage in the spotlight for about an hour. (both girls and guys)

Contact Vern Shank at Pyramid Music Productions (Music Label & Artist Management) 386-258-8877 or or show up at 4:00pm at The Town Center Palm Coast Seafood Festival (Saturday, Nov 5th) wearing black and white attire and ask for Vern at the main stage. You’ll get a free hat and some Mark E. Walker music.


Mark E. Walker, along with David Lane, are both managed by Pyramid Music Productions.    Show support for local talent (including your favorite bartender / social media specialist), by coming to the show and / or spreading the word.   David Lane will take the stage with a full band including Evan Foster of the Seattle-based Boss Martians and Jim Sinex of Daytona’s Finding Ivy.    David will be on stage from 3:00-4:30 and Mark E. Walker will follow him from 5:00-6:30.
