Spotlight on Lindemans Lambics

Lindemans Spotlight

Lindemans is a Belgium-based brewery that has been making their trademark Lambic with the same recipe and processes for over 200 years.

The region is blessed with hundreds of wild yeasts that aid in their exceptional brewing process known as spontaneous fermentation, or natural or wild fermentation. Unlike the controlled addition of yeast used to create pilsners, IPAs, and other beers, spontaneous fermentation happens naturally, thanks to the special micro-organisms that live in the air.

Why Games Make Great Gifts

Why Games Make Great Gifts

Let go of the pressure of gift-giving this year by giving a gift that keeps on giving – BOARD GAMES! Games of all kinds provide hours of fun and enhance social relationships. They bridge generation gaps, encourage laughter and learning simultaneously, and create memories that last long after the wrapping paper has been recycled and the leftovers are gone. A Gift of Experience Yes, a game is a physical object, but there is so much more in that box than meeples, dice, and cards. There is an opportunity to immerse oneself in a new experience, exploring worlds of the past or far distant future. There is strategy to try and new things to learn about your fellow players. A board game is more than a…
