This week on Beer Sessions Radio, summer is in full swing! On the show is Angela Steil, Advanced Cicerone in NYC; Chef Richard Knight from London, England; and Emree Woods from Rightside Brewing in Lawrenceville, GA.
To kick things off, Richard introduces us to his cooking background, which has taken him to quirky spots all across the world. Angela, a master in food and drink pairings, then offers up a couple of contrasting suggestions for beer and barbeque pairings. If you’re looking for something non-alcoholic, Emree has some ideas for summertime drinks.
Richard gets our mouths watering talking about rabbit paella and pork bellies, and then Jimmy challenges Angela to figure out the right drink pairing. As Richard intricately describes different dishes and Angela rattles off pairings, we start to really get a gist of which flavors in beers can help enhance a meal. To wrap things up, Jimmy learns a bit more about nonalcoholic beers from Angela and Emree, who explain how pairings depend more on carbonation than alcohol.
