My column in the latest Food & Dining Magazine is about Gordon Biersch.

The current issue of Food & Dining Magazine (Louisville Edition) has hit the streets, and is available at hundreds of locations throughout metropolitan Louisville. It's the Fall 2015 issue (Vol. 49; August/September/October).

Food & Dining is a Louisville-based lifestyle publication focused on food & cooking, the enjoyment of wine & spirits, and the experience of dining out in one of the nation’s top restaurant cities.

We have all the sensibilities of a local magazine, but with the design and photography of a national magazine.

We pack the magazine and with gorgeous photography, engaging feature stories, entertaining articles, unique recipes and a restaurant guide that details over 1,000 restaurants.

For the current edition, my "Hip Hops" column is about the Louisville branch of Gordon Biersch, where I spent some time with Nicholas Landers and Jason Smith. Nick brews all the GB beers right here in Louisville, and while he is excited about doing a few American-style ales, I focused on the lager side of the Biersch portfolio.

You can read it here: Gordon Biersch: Still Leading with Lager.

“We’re holding to tradition with our lagers, but being able to do India Pale Ales now is awesome,’’ Landers says, noting that in addition to his house lagers and certain contrarian German ales (Hefeweizen and Kölsch), he’s also been crafting limited editions of Porter, Stout and even a few Belgian styles.

You can read the whole issue here: Fall 2015 (Vol 49). In November, it's the 50th issue of Food & Dining. Even I'm not exact about when I started writing for the magazine, although it was at least a year into the run.

Where were you in 2003, and what sorts of beer were you drinking? Let me know.
