I don't remember seeing it around there, nor them mentioning it at all.


Luckily, Hi-Time (a favorite) has them. Next time I'm there, want me to grab you one?


Edit: Although, I seem to remember Jim R. mentioning it, either after last year's D&D visit or during our visit in July after the RPM tour.

I see they are listed in Cutler CA, not Livermore, but the 'contact us' link directs to Telsa.
Sure, that'd be great, tnx.

There seems to be some recipe threads in the Everything but Woot tab ... sadly, you have some juvies posting in between the recipes.

Recipe Exchange IV - Beef

Recipe Exchange III - Chicken - with links to the first two exchanges. And TT posted there in 2007!!!

And of course, ddeuddeg has his heavenly Cheesecake Cookbook recipe link in his sig here.

Great reference for one lacking the history of the real old-timers.
Hoping some of the recent recipes can be added, hint hint.

Jim Ryan is a great guy. He no longer manages the estate for Concannon though, which is a huge loss for them. Not sure the nature of the split, but that and the terrible member experience that we have there now has caused me to cancel.



When RJ and I were just there, they've cut back on items in the tasting room. And the restaurant is now where we tasted then.

Members tasting room is on the right side as you head in, but is only open on weekends.

Not wine. Irish Cream Soda. (aka Guinness.)

Pre-dinner I am trying a Bourbon cask aged stout that clocks in at 15%. I think one will be enough.

EDIT: Goose Island 2012 Bourbon County Stout. Yep, vintage. This is really, really good. Very highly rated (100 in some publications). If you like Bourbon or Imperial Stout, you must try.

Jack Daniels glazed corned beef. (She made two, and we ate half of one. So another meal, sandwiches and corned beef hash coming.) And colcannon and honey-butter carrots. Need time to recover before the Irish Car Bomb Cupcakes.

Maybe a shot of Redbreast or Concannon Irish Whiskey.

Sure, you go to the kick ass Italian bakery by your house and give them a buck and they give you a huge ball of dough that will make five 8 inch personal pizzas. You can roll it incredibly thin. For the price, I don't even bother to try to make it.

I usually do toss the dough, but yesterday it was just easier to grab the pin and roll. The kids were up on chairs "helping" me so I can only imagine how badly trying to toss the dough would have gone. I always figured you for a right tosser though!

I've never been able to wrap my head around the idea of colcannon, although I enjoy the individual
components. I will check out those cupcakes, though. The recipe posting sure did unleash a firestorm of criticism. Made our Politicks thread look tame by comparison.
