In late September, Adam Avery visited the Dallas area. No, I wasn’t stalking his vacation. He participated in several beer tasting events, including a beer and food pairing at the Meddlesome Moth, and a tap takeover at Flying Saucer by the Lake. The festivities were in honor of Adam’s birthday, and/or Avery’s 25th anniversary.

Beer and travel journalist, with a healthy appreciation for coffee and craft spirits, too. Frequently explores the intersections of beer (or other craft beverages), food, travel and culture. They're all interrelated, and this is part of what makes these subjects so fascinating. You can find me on social media (several of them), or shoot an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can as easily find yourself “...face to face with the Sausage Creature” riding a 250cc bike or scooter, especially if a full-size pickup might be involved.

New Orleans is home to a rich and varied culinary scene, which is by no means limited to such iconic staples as beignets, gumbo, crawfish etouffee and jambalaya. There's way more to eat than what Zatarain's offers. However, after a Saturday spent wandering the city, I was looking for some legit gumbo.
New Orleans, home of Mardi Gras, crawfish beignets, gumbo, the Sazerac, the Saints, the French Quarter, ungodly summer heat – and lots of coffee. The place is full of coffee shops, and not just Café Du Monde. One new and modern local coffee shop is Café Bon Ami.
Monday, October 16th, 2017, marks the 200th anniversary of Guinness coming to the United States. Naturally, this is a perfect opportunity to release a special edition beer. That's exactly what the folks at Guinness are doing.
Big Bend Brewing Co. operates out of a (modern) barn, with a taproom located just a few steps from the actual brewery. It's "the most remote brewery in America" and aptly, their tagline is "The beer from out here." Out here, the vistas are both beautiful and forbidding, the people are both welcoming and hardy, and the beer is good.
This here is a collaborative description of a Sunday afternoon in McKinney,TX., including The Celt Pub, Emporium Pies, and Tupps Brewery. There might be sunshine and bottle trees in here, too.
Tupps Brewery makes some great session-able summer beers, some outstanding strong beers, and you can find them in Target.
