There are lots of exciting things going on right now here at LBLF. I can hardly stand it! This weekend I had the honor of touring Blank Slate Brewing Company, a relative new-comer to the Cincinnati craft beer scene. Scott Lafollette, brewer owner, and I chatted about all things brewing for almost two hours. We had a blast as he showed me around the brewery, discussing what BSBC was all about, and tasting a beer, or three.
I ALSO had the pleasure (please-ure?) of meeting up with my new friend, Ryan Santos, chef of the outstanding haute cuisine style pop-up dinner series “Please to Eat You.” He’s graciously sharing a beer&food hybrid with LBLF: how-to make vinegar out of BEER. Me=freaking.out.about.this. Then we’ll be collaborating on a subsequent recipe using the vinegar that can’t be missed. I just love a little DIY in the kitchen. You’ll have to wait for my upcoming Monday food musings for more about the how to, I just couldn’t help but give you a little teaser. (more…)
Happy Thursday! Welcome to what will now be a weekly beer-tastic series. Every Thursday on LBLF you’ll get a glimpse into my real life beer diary. For those who’ve been following along, you’re probably a little excited, and a lot scared. Reasonably so.
