This week Jimmy Carbone was joined in the studio by Blind Tiger’s Jen Schwartzman and Matt Bean of Men’s Health. Matt started with a discussion of pairing beer with food; last year he won the food-beer smackdown at the SAVOR: An American Craft Beer & Food Experience with his sour beer/bacon-covered-dates pairing. He’ll be facing challengers at next month’s Fest, including DC Brau, Green Flash and Ommegang.
Jen and Matt were later joined by fermentation experts Claire Hartten and Claudia Keel. Jimmy discusses his love of Kimchi, and Candice Santaferraro calls in from Frog’s Leap Farm and Winery to discuss some of the homemade mead that she’s been fermenting. For the full episode, listen here.
