Part III: Berlin

In the 1950s, my grandfather Beck was stationed in Berlin. Growing up as a child, I was always so fascinated by the old black & white photos of him from this era in this place unlike anything I knew on the country roads of Texas. I’ve always wanted to go and walk in his footsteps, to think of him as a young man, his family so far away, the devastation of war in front of him. We walked from East to West, we studied the differences from old photographs. We wandered the streets of Scheunenviertel and Kurfürstendamm. We had pretzels and beer, schnitzel and sauerkraut and look back in time of a city that changed so much.

Summertime’s Food & Beer Pairings

One of Kevin’s and my favorite treats is riding our bikes down to Madison Square Eats and having a culinary adventure in the Manhattan sunshine. I always look forward to great food and beer pairing this time of year… remember THIS epic beer dinner?!

All of which gets me very excited for SAVOR, the American craft beer and food experience June 14th & 15th in New York with so many of our favorite brews and yummy bites. I hope you can join us, we are going June 14th and I can’t wait to see what our friends at Dogfish have brewing up this time!

Dogfish Head Asado

As if the end of summer couldn’t be anymore bittersweet… we filled our memories with friends, family and really great beer up in Maine at Dogfish Head’s summer event Asado at Salt Water Farm. On a grassy hill overlooking the bay they roasted lamb, shucked fresh oysters, tapped *a few* kegs and lived a perfect summer night together. Of course being the creative weirdos (I say that in the most endearing way) as they are at Dogfish, we had a special brewed stout just for the event made of 40 Maine Lobsters! Outrageous!

Here’s to a great summer weekend,

Happy Labor Day!
