Maryland Blogger: Happy Hour at Pinky & Pepe's Grape Escape

Happy Hour at Pinky & Pepe's Grape Escape

Happy Hour at Pinky & Pepe's Grape Escape


Chef Dolores had a very busy day and suggested a happy hour visit to Pinky & Pepe's Grape Escape, one of our favorite local wine and beer shops in Kentlands. Click on the link to visit the website and join their email list.

We ordered a small cheese platter to enjoy with our drinks. Dolores had the J.W. Morris Chardonnay and then sampled the Two Oceans Sauvignon Blanc. The chardonnay was her favorite.

I ordered a glass of the Elysian Space Dust IPA, 8.2% Alc. by Vol., from Seattle and discovered a new favorite. The bartender suggested the Bare Knuckle IPA, 7.3% Alc. by Vol., that is brewed by Brawling Bear Brewing here in Maryland. It was also a good selection. 

They have a free wine tasting at Pinky & Pepe's every Friday night.

That sounds like a very nice happy hour. Eating lighter doesn't hurt any of us.
