A local beer blogger is giving away some awesome free schwag (sorry stoners, not that type) and all you have to do is answer one question right to be entered in the contest. If you are very knowledgeable about beer this is your contest. (A Beer Sort of Blog)

An article on cultivating a taste for cheap wine. Wasn’t that what college was for? (WSJ)

Here’s a New York Times op-ed that’s about champagne. Except, it’s not about champagne, it’s about all wines. Or is it about globalization, recession or global warming?

I don’t know if the solution is to diet or send truckloads full of Little Debbie Swiss Rolls to Denver. (Economist)
