Wine and Dime Episode 29 - 13 and Life to Live with Donald Horack

In this episode of Wine and Dime, I had the pleasure of speaking a very astute 13 year old named Donald Horack.  In some ways, Donald isn't your 13 year old kid.  While he does enjoy many things a typical 13 year old enjoys, he also has interests that some adults don't have.  In this interview, our conversation takes us from the G7 summit to Ronald Reagan, to his favorite Root Beer!  (See below for that)  I had a great time talking to Donald and I think we can learn a lot about the generation from this young man.  Thank you for listening and enjoy the show!

Vigil's Root Beer

Great drinks don’t need fake ingredients. Virgil’s is all-natural. We obsess over the recipe and the process. We don’t use any preservatives, any artificial colors, or any GMO-sourced ingredients. Great taste without the chemicals. Plain and simple. A delicious, handcrafted, all-natural refreshment.

Drink Smart, Drink Well, Drink Virgil’s.


War Horse Brewery

IN 2008... 

War Horse Brewing Co. (then called Barley Yards) poured it's first pint. The beer was contract brewed in Rochester with a dream to open an on-site brewing facility in the future. In June of 2016, the dream was realized and our state of the art brewing facility was complete. We have grown and changed a great deal throughout the years. What hasn't changed is our our love of great people, great beer, and great stories. 

War Horse Brewing Co. is part of Three Brothers Wineries & Estates. Imagine three unique wineries and a microbrewery all on one estate, overlooking beautiful Seneca Lake and voilà you've got Three Brothers. As a whole, our priority is a superior customer experience and our philosophy unabashedly argues "we've got something for everyone." Try us...we dare you.
