Snap to It: Art in the Age Goes On Sale
Here at Grid, we love SNAP. The bottle featured in the Holiday Guide has been quietly nipped at for the last few weeks. It's the perfect winter weather spirit—and would make a great gift, especially for out of towners.
Well, fortunately for you (and us, and boozehounds everywhere), SNAP—and it's cousin ROOT; also excellent—are on sale for the whole month of December.
Here's what we had to say about the spicy libation in last month's Grid:
Based on an old Mennonite gingersnap recipe—passed down through Art in the Age owner Steve Grasse’s mother—SNAP is a bottle full of spicy goodness. Though vanilla and cinnamon are strong on the nose, this local spirit drinks more like whiskey, with an intense ginger kick. Produced in small batches with organic ingredients, SNAP is delicious paired with apple cider, dropped into pumpkin beer (Pumpkin Bombs!) or stirred into hot coffee. Grasse also recommends a cocktail of SNAP, bourbon and ginger ale (with a squeeze of lime). Frankly, the brown elixir is satisfying enough all on its own—though you won’t catch us passing on a glass of SNAPnog this holiday season.
Curious New Candles Land On Our Radar
December 4, 2010 5:28 pm
The indie candle label Land by Land is something of a mystery. The brand barely has a Web site and doesn’t chase press, but its exquisite scents were enough to send us on something of recon mission to track down as much info as possible. Here’s what we found out: At the beginning of 2009, Japanese-born, New York-based friends Kanoko Mizuo and Tomoyo Kamio started collaborating on a private hair salon, a small atelier they decided to fill with things they liked.
Love Thy Neighbour
ArticlesGreg Taylor, Elmwood
There’s been much talk over the years on globalisation, how through technology we’re increasingly connected, how international economies have become increasingly integrated, and how increasingly ideas flow freely throughout our societies. How ironic then that globalisation has help us realize that maybe the grass isn’t always greener on the other side of the world. Markets, much like nature, have a way of righting themselves and whilst globalization may have contributed to the financial mess we’re in, it’s also provided an upside.
A porter for an IPA drinker
By Jennifer McDermott
Narragansett Beer has released its winter seasonal craft brew, Narragansett Porter.
It’s available on draught and, for the first time ever, in the brewery’s signature 16 ounce Tallboy cans. This year is the 75th anniversary of canned beer in the U.S. and the brewers thought that pouring a pint of porter from a can was a fitting way to celebrate.
'Gansett Beer marks 120 years
By Jon Baker
PAWTUCKET- If you like the "new" Narragansett beer, there's no way you'll want to miss this.
On Wednesday, Dec 29, 'Gansett officials- including Rumford native and company President/CEO/Owner Mark Hellendrung- will celebrate the old Rhode Island favorite's 120th anniversary with a "Blow-Out Bash" at The Met. 1005 Main St. (otherwise known as the Hope Artiste Village).
It was 120 years ago on that date that the original brewery opened in Cranston.

Once known as Narragansett "Dark", this American-style Porter has been brewed by Narragansett since 1916. This winter marks the first time this seasonal offering has ever been put into 16 oz. pint cans. Like Narragansett "Fest", their fall seasonal, this one has a price point that is hard to pass up $7.99 for 6 x 16 oz. cans! Cheers!
