Put That Tax Refund to Good Booze

It's Tax Day in America, and assuming that Uncle Sam isn't giving you a personal audit, you should have a nice little chunk of change to spend. Why not celebrate with a drink that's totally worth the money! Whether your taste is beer, wine, or liquor; we've got a nicely priced list of the best you can get right here.

Beer:  Westvleteren XII

Price: $85.00 per "Brick" (6 33cl Bottles), up to $300-$400 on Ebay

Why it is worth it: Commonly regarded as "The best beer on earth" Westvleteren XII is brewed by Belgian in the same traditional fashion as they have for decades. It is rare to find this beer Stateside, let alone outside of Belgium, but when you can, pick it up!

Wine: Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2010

Price: $128 per bottle

Why it's worth it: Rating at 98 on the Wine Spectator scale is a top honor, and this wine is consistently found in the top 5 of "Best Wine" Lists around the world. However, the best case for the price is to taste it!

Scotch: Glenmorangie 18 Years Old "Extremely Rare" 

Price: $100 per bottle

Why it's worth it: This Scotch spends 15 years maturing in a Bourbon Oak Barrel, and finishes with 3 years in a Oloroso Sherry Barrel to develop tasting of nuts, dried sticky figs and dates; leaving a nice creamy finish with a hint of fruit, floral, almonds and vanilla. The flavor profile and quality of this exceptional Single Malt Scotch live up to its name: extremely rare.

A Taste of Spring!

With the Vernal Equinox comes a slew of crisp, flavorful beers to celebrate the return of Spring. Here are some of the brews making waves this season, and why you should try them. This list is not intended to be a ranking, Enjoy!

1) Widmer Brothers, Columbia Common Spring Ale

This brew has been catching quite a bit of attention this season with its clean, toasty malt and hoppy, almost pine aroma.

2) Magic Hat, Pistil

A light golden ale with a citrus and floral flavor will provide a refreshing flavor this Spring.

3) Sauel Adams, Alpine Spring

This Spring seasonal made its debut last year, and has since taken a preference over its predecessor, Noble Pils. Taste the clean, full bodied, light citrus flavors in this beer today.

4) Ommegang Brewery, Iron Throne Ale

Named in joint with Game of Thrones, it is a very crisp and bubbly Belgian-style ale with notes of banana and citrus. Colored as light as a Lannister's hair.

5) Sierra Nevada,  Southern Hemisphere Harvest

A bit of a darker, reddish hued beer with a rich and full bodied malt flavor, complimented with a hoppy finish.

6) Dogfish Head, Aprihop

Looking for a sweet and fruity Spring time beer? Well you've come to the right place with Dogfish Head Brewery's Aprihop. A good balance of tangy apricot flavor and sweet caramel malt.

7) Alaskan Brewing, Birch Bock

A Spring beer that truly represents the region it comes from. Alaskan Birch Bock features Alaskan birch maple syrup, homegrown hop varieties from the Pacific Northwest, and glacier fed water. If the complex, rich flavors aren't enough to sweep you off your feet, the 8.5% ABV sure will.
