Cider to the Rescue Recipes

A few years ago on Thanksgiving Eve, I was prepping for my big Thanksgiving dinner and decided to get a few dishes out of the way so I wouldn’t feel stressed Thanksgiving morning. I baked pumpkin cake, threw together veggie dips, and whipped up cranberry sauce. But I managed to forget some ingredients for my cranberry sauce. The stores were closed and I had to utilize whatever I could find in my kitchen. So I grabbed an...

Take Craft Back

About a month ago I came across the “Take Craft Back” movement that promotes the growth of craft beer by standing up to corporate breweries, such as Anheuser-Busch InBev, who are buying out smaller craft breweries.

Going Gluten-Free to GABF

In just a few days, I will be on my way to the 36th Great American Beer Festival [GABF] in Denver, Colorado. This will be my second brewventure to GABF! Last year, I planned on visiting gluten-free and gluten-reduced breweries outside of GABF. However, the festival itself was so incredibly overwhelming (even for a New Yorker like myself) that I was only about to taste what was available during festival sessions. With over 3,000 beers...
