Taiwan Beer in Manhattan?

It seems to be getting around I've seen Taiwan Beer at Khim's Millennium Markets in Williamsburg, Whole Foods Houston St, New Beer Distributors on Chrystie St, Hawkers on 14th St, and my favorite spot to drink Taiwan Beer was at Xiao Ye before it closed. :(

Taiwan Beer in Manhattan?

I saw Taiwan Beer at the Whole Foods Beer Room on Houston St. They got them in the 6 packs. If you're looking for the cans, Xiao Ye on Orchard just below Houston serves them! Finally!

Best Ginger Beer for a Dark and Stormy?

unfiltered fresh ginger is the way to go! I just tasted this at my local grocer in Fort Greene and it's hands down the spiciest, snappiest ginger ale out there. You see the actual ginger pieces in the bottle! and apparently its brewed right here in brooklyn too. did a side by side test dark & stormy with Regatta's and it was night and day.

Help with wines for a Thai wedding reception.

Viognier would be my pick as its pretty versatile with Thai's prominent flavors. Check out this winemaker out of Sonoma specializing in wines made for Thai!

As mentioned earlier Monsoon Valley wines would be a treat as they use an indigenous grape varietal for their red! soft and palatable, and it's a great novelty for the theme.

have fun eloping!
