Jungle Jim's, the foodie's paradise near Cincinnati, hosts a series of beer and wine tastings. On November 10th, Garrett Oliver, brewmaster of Brooklyn Brewery, will be the guest speaker. Garrett recently published a book on food and beer pairings entitled The Brewmaster's Table, so the session will likely follow this topic. Brew Your Own magazine recently ran an article about Oliver and his book. You can see a summary here (the full version of the article isn't online). In the article, Garrett made the case that beer has a larger spectrum of flavors than wine and that, as a result, can be more successfully paired with food than wine. Tickets are $30 and the session starts at 7. Directions can be found at the Jungle Jim's website.
