Bruery-Basta Dinner Pairing and Pizza Throw-Down

After all the prelude webisodes you've been watching, things are starting to heat up as we now head into the main story. This segment contains the moment when we threw down the gauntlet and asked Patrick Rue, world famous brewmeister and owner of The Bruery, not knowing if he'd go for it, if he would be willing to create a beer inspired by a pizza that we would make.  But there's a terrific discussion that happened first, as you will see, in which Kelly Whitaker and Al Henkin, of Basta, share their thoughts on pairings for the big Beer Dinner they were hosting, featuring six different Bruery beers. You'll hear terms like "unfiltered bottle conditioned beer," "Orchard White with Lavender," and such. I have to say, it was exciting just being in the middle of it all.

We'll have more webisodes to follow that continue the unfolding story, and you'll see little teases in this one of our subsequent trip to the Bruery in Southern California, so sit back and enjoy the throw-down!

Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic however , I'd figured I'd
ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog post or
vice-versa? My website discusses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I
feel we could greatly benefit from each other.
If you happen to be interested feel free to send
me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you!
Superb blog by the way!
