A new cider bar offering food and libations is opening in Palisade this month. 13 Brix, located at 130 W. Third St., is a new eatery focused on pairing bistro fare with the new Forbidden Fruit Hard Apple Cider and the wine selection from Varaison Vineyards and Winery.
The refreshing drink offered at the bistro is a new venture for Varaison, located in a historic brick home with a rose garden featuring more than 1,000 rose bushes that has been at 405 W. First St. in Palisade since 1904.
The cider, made with apple juice, champagne yeast and aged in American Oak barrels, also has a hint of cinnamon added during fermentation, according to the company’s website.
13 Brix Cider Bistro is scheduled to have a ribbon cutting at 1 p.m. Saturday, according to its Facebook page.
■ ProStar GeoCorp and its Transparent Earth product is the cover story in the trade journal World Pipelines, which covers the international oil and gas pipeline industry.
ProStar GeoCorp specializes in geospatial mapping, which can be used to streamline business practices, improve maintenance and improve return on assets, the magazine said.
“Highlighting our Transparent Earth solution in an international publication is timely as the industry is ramping back up and exploring the adoption of new technologies in order to improve their operations and manage their assets,” said Page Tucker, CEO of ProStar GeoCorp. “I am confident that Transparent Earth will become the de facto name throughout the world for any company with a mandate to become more modern, transparent and efficient in terms of their operations.”
World Pipelines noted that the oil and gas industry has been “slower than other sectors in adapting cloud technology, it is now beginning to play a more prominent role,” the magazine said.
ProStar’s article in the May issue explores how oil and gas companies in North America are using cloud technology to improve business practices, the magazine said.
