Extreme Brewing: ‘How to’ from a master

Extreme BrewingBeer Hunter Michael Jackson suggests: “Let one of the beer industry’s most irrepressible brewers lead you to extremes in your kitchen. Do try this at home – you’ll be glad you did.”

To take it a step further, you might use the lure to hook a salmon, smoke the salmon, cook it and serve it with – bet you knew this was coming – Alaskan Smoked Porter.
