There are so many things to love about fall. With the leaves on the trees turning from green to crimson and the air crisp and cool, I feel like I can breathe again. I can almost smell the ripe fruit in the nearby apple orchards; so heavy the branches bend like crossbows. Autumn is the season of harvest fairs, wine festivals and Oktoberfest celebrations around the world, and it’s the perfect time of year to take an entertaining and informative look at the age-old debate: beer vs. wine.
