To celebrate the end of a long work week, my friend Amy and I headed to Linganore Winecellars for some wine and music on the patio. It was a beautiful day and the perfect setting to sit back, relax and catch up with each other. We started with a bottle of Pinky’s Rose and ordered a margherita pizza from the food truck before heading off next door to the brewery.
It had been awhile since I visited Linganore and I was dying to swing by Red Shedman’s Brewery (which is only a few steps away from the winery tasting room) for a visit. We walked in and were thoroughly impressed with the facility. We looked at the beer list to pick our 6 flight options. It was our lucky day because they were debuting their ginger cider (which was amazing) Our other brew options included the ‘Farmer’s Daughter Blonde’, ‘Suicide Blond’, ‘Vanilla Porter’, ‘Coconut Porter’ and ‘Raspberry Cider’. All were good but my favorites were the ciders (so refreshing) and the coconut porter.
By the time we carried our flight outside to our table, the pizza was ready! Pizza, beer, wine and music- what could be better!? We spent the next few hours catching up, sipping our adult beverages and enjoying the band.
If you have been following my blog for awhile now you can see I have always been a huge fan of Linganore Winecellar events.
