Sunset from my room’s deck at Little River Inn in breathtaking Mendocino

Pushing into February, I’m digging into the many new openings around the Bay Area as I spend a glorious weekend up in stunning Mendocino with Craft Distillers‘ Low Gap Whiskey dinner at Little River Inn, then another week blind judging over 800 spirits for the biggest craft spirits awards in the world with ADI/Distilling.com.

At Liquor.com, I share 8 small batch spirits made with unusual ingredients, from beets to fennel — and about ABV’s hidden new bar within a bar that will change theme every few months.

As national editor at Table8, here are our latest articles on what is standing out in cities across the country, as well as all my T8 articles on Bay Area newcomers and bests. Then there are new features in my regular outlets: Liquor.com, Liquor.com Drinkwire articles on bars & drink around the world, Food Republic and Where Magazine.
