Foolproof Turkey Day Beer Pairings

Among other treats, the pilgrims feasted on venison, lobster, plums, and cranberries at the first Thanksgiving (wild turkey wasn’t specified, but was a staple food, so, it’s a safe bet they roasted that up, too). And beer? Maybe. They certainly sailed with beer aboard, and planted......

Fire and Spice

Craft beers have been taking a bath in Kentucky’s finest barrels. The results, in the right brewers’ hands, can be delicious. Americans have enjoyed bourbon for centuries, but it wasn’t until the 1990s that craft breweries began tinkering with bourbon-soaked barrels. The......

Grab Me a Kolsch One

It’s getting hot out there. Really hot. You could reach for a can of cheap, light, industrial lager, and experience something akin to Corn Flakes-flavored seltzer. You could opt for an IPA, but thus face a higher booze and bitterness content that may or may not hit the spot. What you......
