Beerwise, put a Belgium on the growler list. Mad Bitch would be fantastic, but probably waaaaay too expensive for most of us.

Winewise, Unti would be excellent AND affordable... ;D

from unit wine:
Hi Chris,
 
At this time we do not have a distributor in Georgia. However, we do have a wine special order license which allows us to ship directly to consumers.
 
Thanks,

Yeah, I was thinking about putting an order together if there wasn't't a distributor here. I hate the shipping costs. Thanks!

We all hate the shipping costs.   

different places have been delivering wine to customers for many years with or without that license.

I absorbed the shipping costs and now have some last century wines ready to come into their own.  Some of the 1990's stuff is damn good.

I'd like to see the Belgians protected from the sun instead of sitting in a big window.  Also, since I brought up storage, I'm wary of buying hops there because they're just sitting out in the open.

not sure the last time you have been in but we have all the hops in a fridge in the front, along with the yeast. As for the belgiums uv protected windows may not do it for ya, but the product seems to move wthout issue.
Thanks for the feedback.

Is there a freezer compartment attached to that fridge?  If so, the hops should be there.  If not, it would be a good idea to get a small freezer for hop storage.

Good to know it's uv protected glass and that the hops are refrigerated now.  totm is right that a freezer is ideal, but this is still much better.  Thanks.

Thanks, evolution  ::) Hops are fine in this cooler as it is quite cold and are only in total weights of several ounces each.
Again thanks to all for the feedback!
