"Restaurants have kinda flaunted the rules. We're paying less attention to what a western Continental restaurant should be like."

"I think a lot of new breweries and microbreweries focus on innovation and technology rather than consistency and Bronx Brewery can be commended for focusing on one thing"

"Dark roasting came out of the west coast and it was something that was used to char and mask the flavors of sub-par beans."

"I think that 2012 has been set up to be a year of personal restaurants, I think we are going to see idiosyncratic talents come to the fore."

"Everyone needs to chill out about the Time's [restaurant critic] seat, things change over time."

--Jordana Rothman of Time Out New York on Snacky Tunes

This week on Beer Sessions Ray and Jimmy (plus the multi-talented Dave Broderick of Blind Tiger) sit down with an all-star cast of beer aficionados and creators. David Geary, the "dean of American craft beer", comes through the studio to talk about brewing in Scottish castles and accessing the most secretive spots of the craft beer universe. Dann Paquette and Martha Paquette talk about being "nomad" brewers: borrowing other brewer's facilities late in the eve to mash and they discuss their heavily-researched historical reproduction beers and what beer making was like in the 19th century.
