RICHMOND, Va. — Gone are the days when only a bottle of wine — or maybe a bottle of the hard stuff — would suffice as a gift to bring your holiday party host.

Dark in color, this barrel-aged stout has flavors of vanilla, coffee, chocolate and dried fruit. The aging process imparts bourbon and wood notes that blend with the roasted malt.

Last year more than 400 people lined up in Chicago on Black Friday for a chance to purchase Bourbon County Brand Stout and its variants. The imperial stout is aged in bourbon barrels for various periods of time, enduring both the hottest Chicago summer days and coldest winter nights lulling a layer of flavors out of the barrels and into the beer.

Bishop Gorman’s Randall Cunningham Jr. scored on a 1-yard run with 2 minutes and 56 seconds left in the third quarter against Mountain Pointe on Aug. 23.
It’s 2012 all over again. Through last-second football bracket seeding shifts, a downpour or two and three extra days of waiting, the 2013 football season will end as last season did:
Good times abound on Arizona Ave. these days, north and south of the Loop 202.
There were no encores or drawn out performances – in fact, Kyle Allen’s senior night was more of a cameo than anything else. But the Desert Mountain quarterback certainly made the most of his 24 minutes of action.
No. 9 Red Mountain at No. 8 Highland: Whether these two teams are, in fact, appropriately places at No. 8 and No. 9, can be argued any which way. But based on the proximity to one another, this should be shaping up a true 8-vs.-9 matchup, an absolute toss-up, coin-flip of a game. Both teams have played good defense of late, especially Highland. Can Red Mountain, which found itself after a 1-4 start to the season with a young team and relentless schedule, continue to succeed with Caleb Murray-Thomas and Brennen Dobson giving different looks offensively? Highland’s defense is stout, but the offense has shown flashes of effectiveness sprinkled in with struggles to score (including last week in a loss to Chandler). Still, that defense is strong and the Hawks are capable of putting up enough points in their methodical, grind-it-out fashion. It’s one of the more difficult games to predict this season because of the style, but somebody has to win eventually.
Prediction: Highland 23, Red Mountain 20
Following two close finishes in a row, the Hamilton football team left no doubt on Friday night with a 42-0 victory over Gilbert. The Huskies dominated from the opening kickoff, scoring on all five of their first half possessions.
Fall means the chance to enjoy a well-built cocktail, mug of small-batch beer or cup of hard cider in front of a welcoming fire.
The Highland football team entered the season feeling good about itself.
When the Diamondbacks fired pitching coach Charles Nagy this week, there were a lot of nodding heads that met the move. If you’ve watched Arizona pitchers for the last two years it was pretty hard to argue.
It may have been Mountain Pointe’s Senior Night, but it was a junior who had the best performance Friday.
The annual Battle of Brown Road will be a doozy. Red Mountain was just starting to get on a roll with consecutive wins until a 17-7 loss to Desert Ridge, in which the Lions’ defense again showed its improvement but the offense (which was hot entering the game) couldn’t go anywhere against the Desert Ridge defense. Mountain View’s defense isn’t quite as stout, and the key here will be whether Red Mountain can find its offense and to what degree the Toros remain hampered by injuries. Mountain View won 42-24 against Mesa last week, but it was a 28-21 game heading into the fourth quarter. Can the Lions contain Mountain View’s big-play guys in QB John Clark and WR Clark Brown? Can the Toros contain QB Caleb Murray-Thomas and force Red Mountain into turnovers, a season-long problem?
Prediction: Red Mountain 27, Mountain View 24

Basha used a steady passing attack and a stout defense to rout Perry 49-0 Friday night.
The Hawks rejoin the rankings after an upset victory over Basha on Friday night. Highland trailed by two touchdowns late in the third quarter but rallied for the 24-21 win. Noah Miller hit a game-winning 27-yard field goal as time expired. The team's running game found holes in the second half and the defense was stout. It's a recipe for success for Highland, which has now won five in a row.
RICHMOND, Va. — Fall is a fine time to sample a wide variety of craft beers, because no matter what your autumnal activity there is likely to be a seasonal beer to make it better.

Basha made a big statement with a 35-21 win over Pinnacle last week. Quarterback Zach Werlinger was very impressive, but the most notable development was the Bears’ stout run defense against Pioneers star rusher Josh Hoekstra, who amassed just 45 yards on 20 carries. Westview is very run heavy, and while the Bears aren’t expected to hold the Knights under three yards per rush, another solid performance by the front seven would be very encouraging. Werlinger did a great job of protecting the ball — only one interception — even though he threw 49 times against Pinnacle. If he can produce a similar effort against the Knights, Basha’s offense should score enough to get the victory...
Prediction: Basha 24, Westview 21

The Coyotes have been one of the least successful programs in the East Valley for the past several years but are off to a great start. The schedule has been light, and Skyline has taken advantage with an undefeated mark through five games. Wide receiver Logan Ruppert filled in very well at running back in the earlygoing with 56 carries for 545 yards, and the team has a cumulative yards-per-carry average of 8.10. The defense has been stout, allowing just 8.4 points per game. The Coyotes end the year with games against Mountain View, Desert Ridge, Desert Mountain, Mesa and Red Mountain, so one win might be the maximum in the second half, but the team should have a shot at the playoffs if it can finish with a 6-4 record.
Honorable mention: Campo Verde, Westwood, Horizon
A late touchdown against the Williams Field Black Hawks defense was possibly the only mistake on a night in which the squad did just about everything right on their way to a 42-6 shellacking of the Maricopa Rams on Thursday night.
A play here, a good break there, and this one easily could have been one of those three- or four-score blowouts for either team on the field.
The move up from Division III to Div. II continues to go smoothly for Campo Verde, as the Coyotes cruised to a 37-13 victory over Thunderbird Friday night in Gilbert. The Coyotes have outscored their opponents 139-19 on the season, on their way to a perfect 3-0 mark.
