Today I’m drinking a Guinness Nitro Cold Brew Coffee

Looks like UVM and it’s School of Craft Brewing has proven there’s a market for learning the craft - and East Tennessee State University was listening. ETSU is partnering with Tennessee Hills Brewing and Distilling to offer a 21-credit minor in brewing and distilling studies. The minor will teach students the ins and outs of crafting beer and spirits - the science, culture and history behind brewing and distilling, as well as ethics, entrepreneurship and marketing.

With the holidays coming it’s important to properly pair your Whisky and Pie! I couldn’t agree more whisky advocate. The pairing was done with “Kathy Hanson, the 2018 winner of the professional best of show award at the American Pie Council’s National Pie Championships. A culinary training cook at the Ritz Carlton in Orlando, Florida, Hanson is not only a believer of whisky partnered with pie, she also likes to use spirits in her pies.” Cherry, Pecan and Pumpkin pies may never be the same!

And who needs a list of the The Best 20 Beers in 2021? Well - I’d like one, so thanks Beer and Brewing for putting this one together. # I’d love to test soon- Resident Culture Static God (Charlotte, North Carolina) a well-executed India pale lager—or hoppy lager, cold IPA. Green Bench Postcard Pils (St. Petersburg, Florida) hops. As they say - If everyone were to somehow agree that from now on, this is what it means—“you know, like Postcard Pils”—we’d be cool with that. And finally Maplewood Barrel Aged Cuppa Vanilla Rye (Chicago) Vanilla rye barrel–aged stout. Three varieties of vanilla, that rye, wood & whiskey, coffee and also chocolate notes. Yes please to all three!
