The story of The Magnolia Wine Company began in Russia, sometime in the late nineteenth century. The details are a bit sketchy, but it is believed that this was where my grandfather, Israel “Izzy” Faberman was born. At some point in his early teens, Israel was sent off to Boston to live with a relative. Early on, Izzy sold fruit out of a pushcart in the original Quincy Market. He worked hard and soon opened a small grocery store.
For September’s Brewer’s Spotlight, I’ve selected Smashed Pumpkin.
This is a big-bodied beer with a light coppery orange color and pleasing aromas of pumpkin and nutmeg.
The Pale Ale, Wheat and Light Munich Malts combine with the natural tannin in pumpkin for a smooth taste, and the delicate spiciness of hops to balance the sweetness of fruit gives it the added something special.
Right now, there’s a glut in the wine market and worldwide wine production is in over-production. For consumers, this means more great wine at a great value! Naturally, this excess includes a lot of average wine, but there is also a ton of terrific wine out there too. And you’ll find a lot of that wine if you come into our store.
