Beer Buzz


World Class Beverages of Indianapolis is making worldwide

news with an innovative product. "Brew Appetit Brewhouse Grille Box" is the

first of its kind: an attractive home kit for a 6-course meal for 4-6 people

that contains a booklet of easy-to-make recipes paired with two bottles each of

Indiana and regional craft. Recipe ingredients are accessible, and

substitutions are simple for vegetarian and other dietary preferences.

Everything can be prepared ahead and refrigerated until you're ready to grille

and serve. Since each recipe includes part or all of a bottle of the paired

beer you might want to supplement for full sharing.
