    Historical Brewing/Beer References (& recipes)

    I have a close beer nerd friend who's been asked to do a cartography lecture at a fancy schmancy college here in Mass. The lecture is about beer/brewing/breweries' influences on maps throughout history. (I know... kind of obscure but don't look at me, I didnt pick the topic). I've been...

    What does "good beer" mean?

    As the craft beer industry continues to grow at a pretty amazing pace, it seems like there is an ever-increasing need (for some reason I don't understand) to quantify beer on "best of" lists and a growing list of rating apps and websites. We're obsessed with "this beer is better than that beer"...

    People who say a certain beer sucks... suck

    I've been guilty of it in the past but I like to think I'm now a bit more enlightened as I age. It seems like it is a growing problem in craft beer that I think is only going to get more and more prevalent the more and more craft beer spreads. That issue? People simply saying "that beer...

    I went "pro" - What it actually takes to do so

    There are always threads floating around by folks who are thinking about the same dream 98% of us have... starting a brewery. I have been responding here and there and figured I would just start a thread. I am super lazy so I lifted (and slightly edited) a response I gave on another...

    Chipotle Mayo in your house at all times is cool

    So pissed at myself I only did this recently... Buy a tiny thing of mayo... Buy a thing of chipotles in adobo... Add the adobo to the mayo to taste.... Put it in your fridge. Having it just in the fridge so that you can just add it to any sandwich you're making... I recommend it...

    My finger is super stinky

    Pit Cookin'

    I am roasting a small pig this weekend for a "Harvest Party" we are having. I am probably going to toss a turkey, some chickens, a large chunk of venison (if I can find it in time). It'll all go into a "custom" pit I have had in my yard for years. (I'll post a pic or two soon) In any...

    Women in beer

    I just thought it was a cool article.... and from being on this site for the last few years, it is easy to think that brewing is a "male dominated" industry and it isn't. I'm lucky to be in Boston where there are a large number of very influential "beer women" ranging from brewers to...

    More... BACON

    I'm looking for suggestions on the cure for some bacon. It's the one thing I've tried to make a bunch of times and have never really been happy with it. The last batch I made was by far the best and that was the simple maple-cured bacon recipe out of Chacuterie. I've made that cure before...

    Smokin', Curin' and Brewin' Sunday

    Someone slipped my SWMBO some sort of weird drug cause she comes out with, "You should head down to Armando's Sunday morning, grab stuff for the curing closet and then brew in the afternoon". (Armando's is a great meat market not far from the house that sells great bellies, etc). Uhhhh...
