Our good friend Kristen Baughman joins us via the Interwebs for our second annual Thanksgiving beer & food pairing episode! We hear all about Kristen’s move to the Big Apple and her new projects. Plus this year Jenn & Tony slaved away in the kitchens to make some delectable treats to go with awesome beers. We feature AnchorChristmas Ale 2014 paired with turkey cranberry meatballs, Sierra NevadaCelebration Fresh Hop IPA paired with chorizo cornbread stuffing, and Bear RepublicBig Bear Black Stout paired with pumpkin cinnamon rolls.
The news this week has stories all over the map. We start with The Wall Street Journal on SABMiller considering what to do next,move over to CNBC with a take on what they call Millennials’ war on Big Beer, go to Florida Today’s history lesson on the origins of light beers, and move west to 2 stories from The San Diego Union-Tribune: one on AleSmith beer .394 which honors Tony Gwynn and another on Green Flash merging with Alpine Beer. We follow with mySA introducing a Texas man who will give you free beer for life for $2,000, Adweek revealing Wil Wheaton introducing Newcastle's Scotch Ale, and close with The Greenville Times on a brewery’s yoga classes.
For the #caskquiz from last week we wanted to know “what politician would you like to grab a beer with?” This week we want to hear about your Thanksgiving plans: “what beer or beers are you pairing with what dishes for Thanksgiving?”
