Also in the new Sip Magazine, I wrote the inaugural piece for a new column called “Ask the Pros.” This was a fun one! I asked Whitney Burnside from 10 Barrel Brewing Company, Brad Ford from Illahe Vineyards, Sommelier, Courtney Smith, Camille Cavan from Quaintrelle, and Mike Huffman from Whidbey Island Distillery – What producer should be on our radar right now, and why? Here’s what they said.





Sip Magazine: Craft Kitchen – When Beer and Quality Eats Unite

18 03 2020

My first feature for Sip Magazine is about the best Brewpub food and beer pairings around the region. From the story: “Wine pairs with food. As sure as the sun rises and sets, this publication and countless others exist, due in part to our acknowledgment and appreciation of this time-honored fact. While the craft brewing industry might not be as broadly recognized for it, the art of pairing food with beer has been coming into its own for years now.”
