Beer buzz 

No April Fool's joke: Kahn's on Keystone is the exclusive importer of an Argentine beer. OK, you think it's a spoof. You're entitled. Even Hoosiers from Argentina corrected me when I mentioned, "I had a couple of good-tasting Argentine beers at Kahn's." Jerome Brewing Co., located in the heart of the Andes in Mendoza, in northern Argentina, opened in 1998. Their nicely aged Andean Stout's complexity makes it a "conversation beer." We stood around the tasting counter holding glasses up to the light to comment on the black pearl hue topped by a creamy head, catching a whiff of coffee as we swirled the cup. The first sips got us identifying notes of dried fruits - notably raisins - and then a richness of chocolate-truffle-like for a full body yet a soft mouth finish. It's the smooth spring water of the Andes that makes this beer unique, we were told. Also available are a red ale and a light lager. Stop by at Kahn's or log on to

But you don't have to go abroad for other believe-it-or-not craft beer worthies. From Power House in Columbus we heard, "April 1 we will have 35 cent Buffalo wings and $2 off pitchers of beer. We should have Diesel Oil Stout, Million Mile Stout and 1436 Dark Wheat Ale on tap, too."

And if they haven't run out, you might even find a draft beer for only $2 a pint, "In response to the tough financial times everyone is facing." Log on to
