Fun Phoodie Facts
Artichokes, a native Mediterranean staple, are currently in season. Did you know the edible portion is actually a floral bud that has to be harvested before maturing? Think about that the next time you take a delicious bite of creamy spinach artichoke dip or add the marinated variety to a bowl of green salad.

Microbrews to Choose
Moylan's Irish Style Red Ale
Keep those Irish eyes a' smilin' with this rich ale recipe from the homeland. Big on barley with a low-hop profile, its invigorating aroma and caramel character compliment most foods. Hearty and luscious!
Moylan's Hopsickle Imperial Ale - Triple Hoppy
Make your taste buds "hoppy go lucky" with a blast of fresh Tomahawk, Cascade and Centennial Hops. Fit for a king (or queen!) with plenty of pucker power.
