This Week in Brewing With Stina
What to drink while training for a fall beer festival: Scotch Ale. Why? Because gone are those long summer days and those wheaty, light beers. It is getting cold out there, folks. And with cold weather comes caramel flavored, creamy beers.
What to drink while re-reading the Da Vinci Code and wondering how the movie got is so wrong: Pale Ale. Why? Because the hoppy notes are bitter, but not as strong as an IPA, while the fruity notes are pronounced, but not cloying.
And what to drink while watching the Seahawks beat the Cardinals: A nice ESB. Why? Because this smooth drinking, bitter beer couples nicely with nachos, corndogs and pretzels (with cheese cups).

Editor's Note: Brewing With Stina is a new feature that will appear on Fridays whenever Stina feels like posting one. TGIF, Cheers! Of course the best way to drink beer, almost any beer, is in a "I (heart) my law library" stein. And I just happen to know where you can buy one! [JH]
