The Beer Issue 2007

Share on Nextdoor

You like beer. We like beer. So we made an issue out of it. Food Editor Brian Ries may be a wine connoisseur, but he also knows his ales and his lagers. In this issue he introduces us to award-winning homebrewers (including one who's gone pro); oversees an international taste test; and provides a handy one-stop guide to the best of everything beer in Tampa Bay. Plus, we give you Brew Confessions, Brew's Clues and so many more beer puns you'll need a good big mug of something before you're through.
