In an oddball twist of writing life, I've become Penthouse magazine's resident beer and spirits journalist, dropping science on booze and brews across the globe. My latest missive is on that lovely, summer-friendly style, the kölsch. The dainty, fruity German ale comes equipped with a crisp edge, one that'll keep you coming back for another bottle, another pint. Curious? Check out the full story at Penthouse. Don't worry. It's safe for work.
Well, hello there, strangers. Last week, I adventured to the wilds of eastern North Carolina, where I stumbled upon the new -- and marvelous -- Mother Earth Brewing. This spanking-new outfit manufactures palate-pleasing beers like the aromatic Sisters of the Moon IPA and my fave, the Endless River. The kölsch-style ale is a crisp, easy drinker, with hints of lip-smacking fruits. I lurve it. Anyway, for the full write-up, drink it up!
