First Draughts: Beer on Thanksgiving!? Here’s how to do it

If your family is anything like mine, Thanksgiving isn’t typically a beer holiday. Thanksgiving is about tradition and (attempted) civility and family. And beer, well, beer doesn’t really fit.

Beer is too often associated with low-brow, hyper-masculine activities like NASCAR, hunting, football and fishing. But any beer...

Review: Get your ridiculously-seasonal coffee drink on

By Sara Knight

Special to DGO

It’s that time of year again. Order up a latte, spiced with pumpkin, laced with cinnamon, topped with cream, garnished with mint and shot through with a hundred million calories of syrupy, sugary goodness. Grab a grandé and get your fix. But where should the good caffeine-craving...

First Draught: How about we Netflix and chill ... with beer

I hate Halloween, but I had one of the best weekends of my life last week. First, the party to start DGO, then on to candles, wine and spooky things in the cemetery, walking around in my underwear and calling it a costume, throwing water balloons at “zombies,” and to wrap it up, brunch that lasted till 2 p.m., then skinny...

Elvis oatmeal: You don’t have to be high to enjoy this ... but it sure doesn’t hurt

When it comes to Elvis, Chef High Guy thinks we should all admire how he could take control of an audience with nothing more than a white jumpsuit and a quivering upper lip. He could also take control of some food, The King being in the pantheon of junky overeating, ahead of his time when it came to high-ass eating. One of...

First Draught: Starting out in a great beer town

The first beer I paid for myself was a Bud Light in a bottle at the Applebee's on Camino del Rio. I'd had other beers – Milwaukee's Best, Keystone Light, plenty of other Buds – but this one I ordered and paid for myself.

I was 19, and yes, the legal drinking age was still 21. The other guys I was with, two years older,...
