Lemon Meringue & Saison
This dessert’s sugary sweetness and lemony snap find the same notes in a well-built saison, but the beer’s other elements, from a kick of white pepper to a brush of barnyard funk, elevate the pairing.

Apple Pie & Amber Ale
It’s as American as you can get: A classic amber ale with sweet caramel notes slides right in with warm apple filling in a rich crust. A rumble of hop bitterness helps to clean up the bite.

Chocolate Mousse Pie & Smoked Porter
This rich chocolate dessert gets even more complex when you add porter’s coffeelike roast and wisp of ashy smoke.

Key Lime & American Wild Ale
Select just the right American wild ale (think bright, citrusy acidity with a touch of custard) to pair with tart key lime pie, and you’ll create a fun, tongue-puckering treat.

Blueberry Pie & English Barleywine
This beer’s intricate malt profile, from caramel and toffee to tobacco and leather, supports the pie’s burst of blueberry while readily adopting its buttery crust; the duo is pure decadence.




Brewery Travels: My Favorite Brewery/Beer from Each State

In my ongoing quest to visit breweries all across this great land, I have now surpassed the 400 mark, and they’ve been spread across 37 states and 175+ cities. To celebrate this landmark, I’ve put together a ‘Special Edition’ of Brewery Travels: A rundown of my favorites in each of the states visited so far.

Why a Miller Lite Was the Best Beer I’ve Ever Had

I’ve worked in craft beer for nearly five years now. I’ve had the fortune to try some truly amazing brews: Pliny the Elder, Heady Topper, Bourbon Barrel Aged Expedition Stout. Supplication? I’ve got one in my mini-fridge. The reason I’m telling you this is because I want to frame my statements here properly. I’ve had good beer, trust me. The best beer I’ve ever had, though, was a Miller Lite.
