The Best Beer in America Can Be Made at Your Home

Exciting news: Bell’s Two Hearted Ale beat out Pliny the Elder, the Russian River Brewing Company’s much heralded brew, as the nation’s best commercial beer surveyed in the 18th Annual Best Beers in America.

No matter where you travel people love to drink beer.

There is something refreshing and invigorating in holding the cold slinky can of beer!

(of course not if you are in Europe where they drink warm beer… really? seriously? bbrr..)

If you are interested to try the Two Hearted Ale, Bell’s now offers a clone recipe and kit for the beer aficionados like you and I to brew our own original and cheers-ful beer right at home.

The kit comes with the Centennial hops that the brewers say gives Two Hearted its notes of pine resin and grapefruit.

Try your own brew at home and invite me for tasting. Need help in naming your original brew? Let’s have a contest.

A Paris Love Story with Hershey Felder as Claude Debussy

November 22 at 5 p.m. Live Stream

Full Viewing Period: November 22 -29, 2020

Live from Florence, Italy Hershey Felder charms us with his impressive and stunning performance based on his book about the life of Claude Debussy and adapted from the stage play directed by Trevor Hay.

Written and performed by piano virtuoso Hershey Felder, who shattered box office records at TheatreWorks productions at the Center for the Performing Arts in Mountain View with his acclaimed portrayals of Irving Berlin, Beethoven, and Tchaikovsky, now Felder captures the life and music of Impressionist composer Claude Debussy, a visionary who proclaimed nature his religion, creating music of ravishing beauty, color, and compassion, from the sweeping “La mer” to the evocative “Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune” and the mystical “Clair de lune.”

Intertwined with Debussy’s story, Felder shares his own deeply personal connection to the City of Light while live streaming this magical story from the city of Florence in Italy.
