just off Fifth Street. She worked on the piece for months. The horse
helped her work through her father’s death and the emotions that
came with it. “Art is healing. The piece just kept getting bigger and
bigger,” stated Wise. Ultimately, the piece needed a name. As luck

would have it, she found a Breyer horse toy in the trash. The pack-

particular horse figure was named Bucephalus, after Alexander the

Humboldt Brews
the Art of Beer
and Food Pairing
by Anthony Welch

umboldt Brews in Arcata is now offering a
beer and food pairing event once a month to
highlight the many ways of combining great
food and unique microbrews. The events will feature
live music, raffles, and a buffet in which flights of beer
will be offered individually with food combinations to
explore the many nuances of beer and food pairing.

enjoyment. Items such as produce from Warren Creek Farms, cheese
from Cyprus Grove Chevre, beef from Humboldt Grassfed Beef,
breads from Brio and the Northcoast Bakery, and chocolate from
Venlo Chocolates, all make for interesting pairing opportunities.
In the book The Brewmaster’s Table, Garrett Oliver says, “No

simple sausage, there is a terrific beer out there that will provide a
perfect accompaniment. If you love food, but you know only wine,
then your trying to write a symphony using only half the notes and

The art of beer and food pairing is to basically take the charac-
ter of the food (sweet, bitter, spicy, etc.) and either compliment or
contrast it with a beer’s flavor profile. The key is to experiment in
order to find what works.
Beer has a wide diversity of styles and flavors offering great ver-

Andy Westfall
Portraits of Life in
Humboldt’s Heartland
by Mary Smith

n 1996, fifth generation Humboldter, Andy Westfall began his
quest to compile a photographic and narrative history of Hum-
boldt County’s rich ranching heritage.
The project started out simple enough. Westfall bought a used Graham Westfall and boys, Henry and Jack, Oil Creek Ranch
book for $10 entitled Historic Ranches of Wyoming. This got him
thinking that nothing like this existed in Humboldt County. The Andy and his wife Sandy purchased a ranch in 1989 at Bunker
wheels started turning. Westfall took into consideration the area’s Hill. This led to their involvement with the Buckeye Conservancy
rich culture, vast landscape and the people that make ranching and the Cattlemen’s Association while learning how to deal with
here a way of life. the many issues of running a ranch.
Westfall, who was an art major in college, began the book’s
process by contacting ranchers for interviews and taking photos.
Several thousand photos were taken by Westfall in the 14-year pe-
“.... worked and played on ranches all riod and 100 interviews were held. One interview led to another.
The close-knit ranching community embraced the endeavor early
over the county. And there was not a on and the Humboldt Heartland project grew. Combined interests
in photography, local history and ranching formed Westfall’s mis-
pickup cab or kitchen, mountaintop or sion to discover and portray the real people, real lives and real busi-
nesses respectfully, accurately and appropriately.
meadow where I did not feel welcome. “ As the interviews and photographs accumulated, Westfall or-
ganized the material into five categories, which became the struc-
— Andy Westfall ture for the book, Humboldt Heartland. These include: The Lore, The
Landscape, The Livelihood, The Life
and The Legacy.
In Westfall’s own words: “The
project’s 14 years gave me some
wonderful times and I learned
a great many things. I photo-
graphed, visited with, rode along,
and worked and played on ranches
all over the county. And there was
not a pickup cab or kitchen, moun-
taintop or meadow where I did
not feel welcome. There are two
regrets: that I did not get to some
people in time and that I could not
include every place and not every
person in the book.”
The result is a beautiful 250
page, hardcover book that cap-
tures the life and times of many
Humboldt County ranching fami-
lies, past and present. Humboldt
Heartland is available for $75 plus
tax, postage and handling. To

elcome to the wineries and vineyards of 2
Humboldt County—a community of artisan Orleans
wineries and vineyards whose passion and
enthusiasm for wine is matched by the quality of their
products. Humboldt is a county of diverse growing and
wine making areas, from the vineyards and wineries
scattered amongst the redwoods of Southern Humboldt
to those winding river and forest canyons of the East
county, and the wineries in the Northern County that feel
the cool breezes of the Pacific Ocean. These diverse regions produce a variety of
grapes ideally matched to the micro-climates and soils of these areas. Most of the
vintners are happy to welcome guests and are only open by appointment.

Humboldt Arts Council is the county’s largest arts organization, founded in 1966 and dedicated to the promotion of arts and culture in
our region. The Morris Graves Museum of Art, a program of the Council, is located in the former Carnegie Library in Eureka. The Museum
was built in 1904 and completely renovated in 2000 with over 1 million dollars in donations from the local community. The Morris Graves
Museum of Art houses seven galleries including the Melvin Schuler Sculpture Garden, a Museum Gift Shop,
Youth Gallery and Classroom facilities, Arts Resource Center and Performance Rotunda.
