VIRTUAL Beer and Food: An Exploration

VIRTUAL Beer and Food: An Exploration

Given the various ingredients (malt, hops, yeast) that are used in beer, a particular brew can present flavors of tropical fruit, toast, caramel, coffee, pine, clove, even bubblegum, in each pint. Those varying flavors make it the ultimate adult compliment to a well prepared meal. 

Using "flavor bridges" this virtual presentation by journalist and author John Holl, goes beyond just a beer with a particular food; it examines beer styles and ingredients, and how it works with how dishes are prepared, sauces it might use, accompaniments and more. 

John is an award-winning journalist covering the beer industry. He’s the author of several books including Drink Beer, Think Beer: Getting to the Bottom of Every Pint and The American Craft Beer Cookbook. He is the co-host of Steal This Beer, a podcast. His work has appeared in the New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Wine Enthusiast and more. John has lectured on the culture and history of beer and judged beer competitions around the world

Registrants will be emailed the zoom link the day before the event.

This program is made possible with the support of The Friends of the Livingston Public Library.
