It’s that wonderful turkey time of the year, so of course we had to get food blogger and jet-setter Kristen Baughman on the line via satellite! She regales us with her travel tales, and talks Italian craft beer and food pairings with us. Then we do our own beer-food pairings and try some all-new 12-ounce bottles from AleSmith Brewing: Nut Brown Ale, L’il Devil Belgian-Style Pale Ale and IPA!
After all the MegaMergerMania of the past few weeks, things have quieted down on that front. Other news is out there though! CNBC reports on beer's new frontier: Nitro, followed by Greenville Online announcing that Sierra Nevada is starting a rare beer club, and War on the Rocks presents a noble idea of beer without hops. Next up is Crain’s Chicago Business revealing that Chicago is the craft-brew capital of the U.S. by one measure, then DNAInfo shows us that a 'Flux Capacitor’ can make a perfect brew, The USA Today shows us a craft beer icon plunging into magazines, and we end with WNCN’s story that the ACC will allow beer sales at its basketball tournament and football championship.
Last week for our #caskquiz we asked “are you bummed out by the MegaMergerMania?” and this week we are asking “what unusual food did you have for your Thanksgiving feast?”
