Beer and BBQ - what could be better? This week on Beer Sessions Radio, Jimmy Carbone is joined by Ben Keene, editor of Beer Advocate, Kelly Taylor of Kelso and Joe Carroll, the man behind Fette Sau, St. Anselm, Spuyten Duyvil and author of the new book Feeding the Fire. In Feeding the Fire, Carroll gives readers his top 20 lessons and more than 75 recipes to make incredible fire-cooked foods at home, proving that you don't need to have fancy equipment or long-held regional traditions to make succulent barbecue and grilled meats. This program was brought to you by GreatBrewers.


"Beer is easily paired with most food and most food is easily paired with food." [12:00]

"If you grow up drinking commercial American lager or crap wine, then I think you're immediately drawn towards the really intense high gravity over the top stuff right way because you're looking for something so radically different than the lame insipid stuff you grew up drinking. Over time that fades and you appreciate those lighter lower gravity beers again." [25:00]
