This is just too funny! Although I have seen some of these at one point or another…

Winemaker vs. Brewmaster – Vigneron vs. brasseur

La version française suit l’anglaise.


The elite Halifax club recently held its second “Winemaker vs. Brewmaster” dinner. What a great idea!

I’ve had the chance to hold dinners that featured either wine of beer pairings in the past, but the idea of a complement of both – and a friendly competition – is one that should be reused in other locations!

Anyone game to try this in Ottawa? I can think of some venues that would be great as hosts…


Le renommé Halifax Club a tenu, récemment, son deuxième souper “Vigneron vs. Brasseur”. Quelle bonne idée!

J’ai déjà tenu des soupers avec accords de vins ou de bière, mais jamais les deux. Je dois avouer que l’idée; d’un repas ayant les deux – et même d’en faire une compétition amicale est une idée qui se devrait d’être reprise dans d’autres localités!

Y-aurait-il quelqu’un à Ottawa pour reprendre le fleuron? Je peux penser à quelques endroits qui seraient d’excellents hôtes pour un tel souper!

I’m sensitive…

Or at least, that’s my vinotype

Tim Hanni is a Master of Wine from the US who wants to change how we think about wines and wine pairings. As part of his work, he devised this simple test to determine what he terms your “vinotype”. I went through the test and it actually seems to work for me – at least it’s the definition with which I associate myself the most from his list.
