Beer 101


The Way Back Brew Machine

OK, think back to the first good beer you ever had. No, not the first cold, cheap, keg beer in a solo cup in college, but the first really, really good craft beer—maybe it was crisp and hoppy, maybe it was Belgian, maybe it was something else entirely? Whatever it was, it changed your...

The Best Beer and Cheese Pairings Yet

We’re just going to come right out and say it. Beer, not wine, is the ultimate pairing with cheese. After all, beer comes from the same place: the humble pasture, the farm, the ancient communal gathering places of our rustic past. Think of it this way—have you ever seen goats,...

One Hop Shopping

Dry hopped, wet hops, single hop, secret hops—no matter how you use them, these aromatic little flowers never fail to excite. And although there was a time when pillows filled with the mildly soporific, leafy cones were sold as a sleep aid, today you’ll almost always find hops...

Green is the Color

Dear Readers: we asked and you answered: as of our recent poll, your favorite style is IPA . We love them, too. The best balance assertive, tangy hops with enough body in the grain department to achieve liftoff on the palate, and work well with certain foods (especially spicy fare). The...

Just Brew It

At least lawmakers have been getting something done lately. Homebrewing is now legal in all 50 states , after Mississippi and Alabama passed laws earlier this year. It’s a great American tradition dating to our earliest days, and has fueled the modern craft beer revolution, too. From...

Wanna be a Brewmaster?

Hop Victors

Ah, beer, a topic most of us can agree on...right? Hardly. With so many new breweries and beers coming out it can be mind-boggling to keep up, and one beer lover’s heaven is often another’s hell (hmm, fruit beer, anyone?). But sites that crowd-source beer reviews do tell us a lot...

Glass Act

While red plastic solo cups or the occasional Mason jar will do in a pinch, the complexity and quality of craft beer cries out for better vessels. You wouldn’t serve a beautiful wine in a crummy old cup, so why would you do the same with a lovingly-crafted beer? It’s not just...

Happy Beerthday to Us!

We were so busy drinking beer diligently reporting that we almost missed an important milestone. Weekly Pint officially launched in New York City a year ago in late January (with a beer and cheese bash, naturally). Since then we’ve crafted over 100 articles on everything from pairing...

Beer by the Bay

Is spring here yet? Not quite, alas. But there’s a slew of beer week events across the country to tide us over. (Last May we previewed great beer fests in Philly, Chicago, Asheville, and Portland, OR; check that warm-weather list here and start planning ahead.) Organized by local...
