About Me

Enjoying A Nice Brew

I have always loved to cook, which is probably why food and alcohol pairing came so naturally to me. I love the idea of matching together complimentary flavors, and making everything I serve pop. Although most people decide to pair food and wine, I love to mix it up and add interesting lagers.
