Like most lagers, Oktoberfestbiers are typically light on hops and have a stronger malt flavor. This russet-hued offering fit the bill with mild bitterness and a pronounced, yeasty finish that reminded us of sipping on a glass of liquid bread (in a good way!).
Less crisp and more warming, this beer is on the savory side — almost salty. And while this beer goes down smoothly and could easily be enjoyed without food, it would pair well with, naturally, Germanic cuisine, such as bratwurst and sauerkraut. We'd also play up its bread-like flavor by whipping up a batch of beer bread. What better pairing than a foamy lager with a slice of generously buttered bread?
We're gearing up to share Michelle Obama's first set of answers to all the awesome questions you submitted. For the first installment, the First Lady will be sharing her thoughts on education and women's health. It's been so fun to hear from all of you and we still want to hear what you're thinking!

While most commercially available honey is a blend, meaning that the bees which produced the honey collected nectar from a variety of flowers, single-origin honey is becoming increasingly popular. Curious to see if we could detect the difference in flavors like acacia and chestnut, we tried seven different types of Italian honey, purchased at Eataly.

Warm up this season with a deliciously creamy — but dairy-free — bowl of butternut squash soup from dmash.Nothing says Fall like butternut squash soup! This recipe is just as creamy as those with dairy, and in my opinion, better! The spicy pepita seeds are just icing on the — soup.
