These are the words, images, and beers that have inspired the GBH collective this week. Drinking alone just got better, because now you're drinking with all of us.
READ. // "Slavery and whiskey, far from being two separate strands of Southern history, were inextricably entwined." This year is the 150th anniversary of Jack Daniel’s, and the distillery is using the occasion to tell a different, more complicated tale. Jack Daniel’s Embraces a Hidden Ingredient: Help From a Slave
LOOK. // An exhibition of people around the world grabbing a quick nap at coffee shops.
DRINK. // Zip Line Brewing Company's Kolsch.
A clean, dry, bready malt profile is joined by a grassy hop flavor and a subtly sweet honey aroma. It's the perfect beer to enjoy surrounded by Nebraska cornfields and gravel roads.
READ. // "American life is based on a reassurance that we like one another but won’t violate one another’s privacies. This makes it a land of small talk." I hate small talk, but it's everywhere. My Struggle with American Small Talk
LOOK. // As part of the Somerset House's Daydreaming with Stanley Kubrick exhibition, Toby Dye has created a four-screen, four-story film installation inspired by the master filmmaker.
DRINK. // Bell's Brewery's Quinannan Falls Special Lager.
A hefty pine aroma, dry-as-a-bone straw body, and unexpected citrus finish make a beer that was cooked up in a dream into a real-deal refresher.
READ. // “When I say our beer is ‘Belgian as fuck,’” Barbee says, “I really believe it.” Munchies looks into Rockmill Brewery of Lancaster, Ohio. The Most Belgian Beer Outside of Brussels Might Be Made in Ohio
LOOK. // In the first season of Netflix's documentary series, Chef's Table, Magnus Nilsson speaks to how he continually innovates while still celebrating the past so that old ways and traditions aren't lost.
DRINK. // 4 Hands Brewing Co.'s Incarnation IPA.
The Mosaic hops offer a fruity, tropical smell that gives way to something dank and earthy, which makes for a great counterpoint and a lovely beer.
