A First: A Contest on The Blog
It's a first for WhiteTrash BBQ - A contest! I'm giving away a copy of "He Said Beer, She Said Wine." Keep reading and find out how to get a copy for yourself.
Finally a book about wine and beer for the rest of us; "He Said Beer, She Said Wine" by Dogfish Head brewery founder Sam Calagione and renowned sommelier Marnie Old and published by DK Publishing just this month.
I loved this book.
Beer is traditionally the drink of choice when it comes to barbecue, but as barbecue expands to grilling and more "exotic" foods face the flames, many people are searching for the right wine for the meal. Others still reach for that beer but are growing bored with the mass produced brews.
"He Said Beer, She Said Wine" is written in a style that pairs beers and wines together with real foods for a meal. It's written so that even the most novice wine or beer drinker can learn what makes a good wine and deciphers all that vinology gobbledygook without making the reader feel like a real dumb ass. And it makes beer accessible and desirable to the wine snob all the while singing its praises for the great unwashed.
Beer is not the plebeian drink and wine is not just for the Rockefellers. In "He Said Beer, She Said Wine," we can all get along.
