Liquor Store Memphis TN
663 S. Highland St.
2865 Walnut Grove Rd
Paragon, located at [Address], is your garden variety pub. It's not going to win any raves of "Hottest. Bar. Ever.," but it's a serviceable place to relax and unwind. Just keep your expectations grounded. And there's something to be said for beers that cost less than $14 bucks. Review of Paragon.
J & B Lounge
1305 Airways Blvd
J & B Lounge - Dress up. J & B Lounge isn't necessarily "formal," per se, but it's sexy and sleek; this is the kind of place where if you're dressed like a tool, you'll stick out like a sore thumb. (Probably more than a sore thumb, actually-those don't really stand out when you think about it). The point is: it's a solid place. Bring your A-game.
1277 Getwell Rd
Castaways - So you want to get a table? Be prepared to shell out some cash. Castaways caters to the upscale crowd so you better make sure you're ready to roll.
Cat Island Yacht Club
557 S Highland St
Cat Island Yacht Club - In need of a quick drink without the hassle of a doorman? Cat Island Yacht Club will do the trick. Grab a seat at the welcoming bar and order one of the many brews on hand. The bartender will likely hook you up if you become a regular and then you'll really have your very own place where everyone knows your name.
Getaway Sports Bar
931 S Highland St
Getaway Sports Bar - Some bars are legendary. The kind of watering hole that you'll remember for most of your life. Getaway Sports Bar? It's not one of them. Located at [Address], it's pretty much your vanilla bar. Which isn't a bad thing.
2650 Southern Ave
Bikers Corner - Here's the problem with most bars: the vibe sometimes dies around 1am. Luckily for you, when most bars are sweeping up the floors and closing shop, Bikers Corner kicks it into another gear. The place usually keeps it going 'til way late-guaranteeing a late and out-of-control night.
Dog & Dog Lounge
1282 Airways Blvd
Dog & Dog Lounge - If you're planning on wearing sneakers, hoodies or any other casual apparel, you should probably go to another lounge. Dog & Dog Lounge, located at [Address] prides itself on being selective at the door. So if you don't look good, you probably aren't getting in.
Varsity Sports Grill
3566 Walker Ave # 7
Varsity Sports Grill - Happy hour never looked so good. Varsity Sports Grill, located at [Address] caters to an anxious after-work crowd but once the drinks start coming, the ties start getting loose.
Full Moon Club
1718 Madison Ave
Full Moon Club - There's not much to be said about the cocktails at [name]. They're not necessarily cheap, but they're as tasty as they are potent...a delicious and dangerous combination.
How do they make beer, wine and liquor?
By Russ Cobbe
It's a good question and one you rarely think about on the way to the store to pick up a bottle or two of alcohol. They all involve some sort of fermenting process, which changes sugars in the ingredients into alcohol.
The basic ingredients are malted barley, yeast, water and sometimes other grains are added. Hops for example are used to make the resulting brew have a bitter flavor. Barley grain is turned into a malt by soaking it in water and allowing the grains to start germinating. The grains are then dried in a kiln, which stops the germination and voila you have malted barley. The malt is ground up and mashed with hot water, which is then boiled, the result is called wort. Next comes the fermentation process which starts with cooling down of the wort and the adding of yeast. The yeast turns the natural sugars that exist in the grain into alcohol over a period of time. The end result of course is beer.
The most important aspect of wine making is deciding when to pick the grapes from the vine. Conditions must be just right for the variety being used and the picking must be done quickly. Stems are removed from the grapes after picking and the skins are generally left on for at least 24 hours. The grapes are pressed to extract the juice from the grape. This juice is allowed to settle to remove any bits of skin. Yeast is added which turns the sugars in the grape juice to alcohol and carbon dioxide. There are specialized yeast cultures that act differently on the grape juice to provide different characteristics. The resulting wine is left so the yeast settles and the wine is drawn off, this can happen multiple times until the wine is clear. The wine is cold stabilized which precipitate white
crystals that are using in making tarter sauce. Finally the wine is filtered and bottled.
Spirits such as Rum, Vodka, Gin and Whiskey have a much higher alcohol percentage than wine o...
