On The Radio In The St. Catharines-Niagara Area

Posted by Bob Skilnik on March 2, 2007

Got a call today to do 10-minutes with radio guy Kevin Jack at Newstalk 610 CKTB around 1:30 P.M. CST, tomorrow, March 3. Just so happens to be my 33rd wedding anniversary too, so it’s an easy date for me to remember.

Anyway…here’s the description of the show:

Saturday afternoon is time for fine wine, dining, beer and pubs with A Taste of Niagara. Each week your host Kevin Jack talks with vintners, chefs, brewmasters and bar owners to give you a taste of what Niagara has to offer. News from wine producers and regions around the world – it’s on A Taste of Niagara. What beers are new to the market – it’s on A Taste of Niagara. Where is the best food in the peninsula – it’s on A Taste of Niagara.

Best part? You don’t have to be within the area to listen in. Just go to tomorrow and have a listen.

Five Urban Legends of American Beer History

Posted by Bob Skilnik on March 2, 2007

As I was doing research for Beer & Food: An American History, I had the opportunity to delve deeper into the history — the development — of American beer. In 2003, I had written a article for the Chicago Tribune’s ‘Good Eating’ section that touched on the ever-changing character of our beer, but there is only so much to say in a 1000-word article. The book gave me a chance to take a second look at our favorite drink.

But why did it change? Best answer? Read the book, but take a look too at this press release for a short over view.
