At Serious Eats World HQ our Friday afternoon happy hours revolve around beer. We even have a stash of growlers in the office, awaiting weekly refills. And as the weather grows warmer, our happy hour rolls around earlier, hence it should be no surprise that this month's issue of our magazine is dedicated to beer, a subject near and dear to all of us.
That goes for everyone from me, a casual beer drinker of light and fruity beers, to Kenji, a serious beer drinker if there ever was one. That means our beer issue has to cover all the bases, and boy, does it ever: a basic guide to what's in your beer, an awesome at-home hack for adding flavor to your brew, tips for hosting a beer and cheese party, and, for the truly dedicated, some advice on what it's really like to open a brewery. To wash it all down, mix up our recipe for a smoky beer cocktail.
So join us and raise a glass to the beer issue of our magazine. I trust you'll find it seriously tasty and refreshing. And if you haven't already subscribed to our monthly magazine, at the rate of $1.99 for a monthly subscription, or $19.99 for a year, please consider doing so. It's the easiest way to get all of our best stories in one beautifully-designed place.
