Bob Klein, author of The Beer Lover's Rating Guide, has logged over 90,000 miles over the past decade and a half in search of the perfect beer—and is committed to tasting 2,000 beers by the year 2000! Consider this your guide to microbrews. We have a conversation with Peter Davidoff, owner of the H.C. Berger Brewery in Fort Collins, Colorado, about what its really like to run a microbrewery. Nell Newman, cofounder of Newman's Own Organics, tells us about life in a family business. Lynne answers listener questions about cumin and cocoa powder, recommends two new cooking schools in France, and shares a recipe that puts those microbrews to work.
