In this wonderful world of beer it’s not complete without food. The two go hand in hand! It’s like the beach and the ocean, stars and night, summer and bikini’s. While any one of these things are great on its’ own it’s a whole lot better when paired up. With this month’s Chow Hall I decided we’d talk about one of the oldest, easiest, overlooked pairings ever; beer and cheese.
When’s the last time you went to the grocery store shopping for cheese? I happened to walk by the cheese…Continue

For this session of Chow Hall I thought I would breakdown a coursed out meal. Some of these pairings might be a little off the wall and some might be tame. The idea is to experiment, push the envelope, diversify your pairings, and to never settle. Some of these pairings are of my own design, others are from working with my chef Jorel Pierce at Euclid Hall, and others are from the ingenious mind of Ryan Conklin, Euclid Hall’s Certified Cicerone. No matter who thought up the pairing the…Continue
For this session of Chow Hall I thought we’d talk about a very easy way to pair great food and great beer.

I’m talking about pairing food and beer from the same regions of the…Continue

For this session of Chow Hall I thought I would break down the popular styles of Belgian Beer and show some amazing pairings that will really bring them to life. We'll be focusing on Belgian Singles, Dubbels, Triples, and Quadruples. While there are many other styles to Belgian ales these are by far the most popular and easiest to remember; just think of the sequential order.
Starting from the bottom and working our way up we have Belgian Singles. Typically this beer is rarely brewed…Continue

I recently read on Shikes blog (WestWord) that Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey is denying the use of their name on craft beer labels. Yes you heard me right. The number one whiskey of Colorado is denying the use of their name on…Continue
Avery Brewing is at it again! While this small brewery in Boulder, Co. has been producing amazing beer for 18 years and currently is at max production and looking to expand, their side project of barrel-aged beers hasn’t slowed in pace since conception.
Avery Brewing first started their barrel-aged line in February of 2009 with Brabant a Wild American Ale. Since they have created some of the most…Continue
