October 1, 2017 0

With the Great American Beer Festival upon us, many fellow beer nerds will flock to Denver in search of delicious suds. If you have time, a side trip to northern Colorado is worth it.

May 12, 2017 0

I had a craving for lamb shakshuka. As we all know, cooking with beer makes kitchen adventures even more fun, so it was time for a little experimenting.

Visiting Russian River Brewing Company has long been on my bucket list. Pliny the Elder is one of my favorite double IPAs, and Consecration and Supplication are amazing barrel-aged sours.

May 27, 2016 0

Amanda: If there’s one flavor profile I especially crave in my IPAs, it’s citrus.
