Better Beerfood

I met up recently, over beers, with William Flanagan and Paul Rinehart to discuss their new website: Better Beerfood.

Better BeerFood is not simply about cooking with beer as an ingredient, they told me. Rather, each episode lists specific recipes that pair well with beer and, likewise, suggests beers that pair with those dishes.

Each of the duo are 'beer-guys'. Paul is the culinary-schooled chef; William is the film-schooled videographer/webmaster. Paul prepares the food in short videos, filmed by William in a breezy manner over indie-rock soundtracks.

Coming soon, they told me, will be a segment on Clipper City Brewing's Loose Cannon Hop3 Ale. What recipe Paul and William cook up for this India Pale Ale (I.P.A.) will depend—they said, grinning—upon their upcoming 'taste-testing'.

Beer author Bob Skilnik recently announced similar plans—casting a wider net—at Drinkz-N-Eatz-TV.
