There are tons of options when it comes to protein powder, but most guys don't know about the different types and uses for them. In this blog post, we'll discuss four things that you may not have known about protein powders: what they're made from, how to choose a type for your needs, the benefits of using a vegan option, and why they can be handy during travel.

If there is one thing I love above almost anything else in the craft food and beverage market, it is innovation that creates an experience for the imbiber. That's how I felt after trying Pech Merle Winery's inaugural release of Linea, a "solera" blend that features five vintages of cabernet sauvignon, starting with a 2008 from Garden Creek Vineyard. This wine is special to both the winery as well as to Pech Merle wine club members like myself because this isn't about creating something arbitrarily fancy just to pull a few extra dollars from our pockets. This is quite literally a love letter written by the winemaker to all of the Pech Merle fans that have supported them over the past 13 years.

One of my favorite parts of traveling is experiencing new food that you can't get anywhere else. Sure, you can get tacos in any state ... but San Diego is king.

While many of these are iconic foods like BBQ from Nashville's Peg Leg Porker or Joe's Kansas City Bar-B-Que, others are lesser known ... despite being local's favorites for years. Armed with a $500 gift card provided by Goldbelly we started our journey. Here's what we bought for our backyard feast (and saved for ourselves to eat too!).

These guys are fun and experimental as well as very personal and approachable, so we are extremely excited to see what else they come up with in the future.
