Something To Wine About

The Pandemic has been good to the middle class. Middle class wines that is. An article published this week in The Drinks Business details how middle tier wines that usually suffer in times of financial crisis are flourishing during the pandemic. Their explanations are few, but some speculation is that with the closure of on-premise, consumers are more comfortable splitting the markup difference and splurging on the above entry level marks.

How Much Wood...

We lead this week with a story filed under "things that make you go 'Woof.'" Woodchuck Hard Cider sold this week for $20 million.

IHOPe You Weren't Expecting Pancakes

We start out with sad news this week. Or is it a silver lining story? Last Tuesday was National Pancake Day. This year unfortunately, revelers who made the pilgrimage to their local IHOP to claim a free short stack of pancakes were confronted with the sobering reality that a global pandemic is not the best time to pack out everyone's favorite chain diner (sorry, Denny's). Instead, in a move to both boost enrollment in their MyHOP customer...
