New R & B Beer!
Five local chefs have collaborated with R&B Brewing Co. to produce its new Chefs Series of 650-milliltre "bomber" bottles tailored to the food they serve. The first beer was made in collaboration with Forage chef Chris Whittaker and it is being released in Forage and in private liquor stores on May 27. Whittaker designed a light summer ale to pair with halibut. Brewed in California common-style, his beer incorporates local nettles, ginger, and mint.
