We Like Drinking Podcast

The truth is, most of us don't just drink one type of drink, we enjoy all kinds of adult beverages. The majority of the podcast and blogging world, however, sees the world through their own myopic drinking glasses. It's either all beer, all wine, or all spirits, in other words, they're boringly singular. We Like Drinking recognizes that the drink you crave depends on the situation, environment, mood and a host of other things. This podcast works hard to have fun first and maybe teach you something about your favorite drinks.

This week on episode 267 of the We Like Drinking podcast we’ll be discussing tariffs, grape expectations, and we’re chatting about all of the above with Jeff Miller, so crack open your beer, uncork that wine, and let’s get drinking.

Panel Introductions And What We’re Drinking

  • Tonight we’re joined by most of our usual panel members, we have our California Sustainable Winegrowing Ambassador, and recovering Wine Blogger, Jeff Solomon, our commercial brewer and snake wrangler, John Ruyak, and I’m your host and certified specialist of wine, Jeff Eckles.
  • Our guest this week is the managing director at Grape Expectations, a wine importer, distributor, logistics firm, and retailer focusing on delivering hand made wine to the California, Oregon and Washington state markets. He has a unique insider view of how the US versus EU tariffs (and tariff threats) are affecting the wine world. Please help us welcome, Jeff Miller
    • You can find Grape Expectations on Instagram at GrapexWine, subscribe to their blog at, or subscribe to their podcast, “Grape: Unfined Unfiltered” on all your preferred podcast catchers.
