The next edition of The Session has been announced by snekse over at Gastronomic Fight Club and it is all about local brews:
The idea here is to be as helpful as possible for visitors to your area. What is the beer/brewery/brewpub that you feel is quintessential to your city? What do the locals drink? What could a tourist drink that would make them feel like they've found something special; something that they're going to miss when they go home? Here are the rules:Commercial!?! That rules out my own beer. Damn. Does trading it for venison sausages count? One hundred an fifty miles? How far is that from my house? Montreal? No. Toronto? Probably not. Syracuse, Ottawa, Ithaca, Campbellford? Yup, yup, yup, yup. This should be interesting.
- You can pick anything commercially made within 150 miles of your house, but try to pick the brewery or brewpub closest to your house (NOTE: the average American lives within 10 miles of a craft brewery).
- You can select any beer or even a sampler if you want.
- If you select a single beer, let us know why you choose this beer (e.g. favorite,seasonal,limited edition, best seller).
- Preferably you'll shy away from beers with wide distribution outside your immediate area.
