Cooking and Beer

Hi everyone! My name is Justine and over on Cooking and Beer, I am combining bold and inspirational cooking (and baking...of course) with craft beer. Along with the expertise of my better half, Zach, we do the best we can to pair your favorite recipes with the best beer money can buy. Zach and I love all things food. We love cooking, dining and exploring new and unique restaurants. Together, we created this blog to share our favorite ideas and recipes for all to enjoy. The central Colorado area has brought us a much broader world of sustainable growing practices and new ingredients we weren’t always able to enjoy in our previous residences. With the addition of exciting new ingredients in the area, we also were able to explore new and better craft beer options! We thought to ourselves, what better way to explore new food and beer, but to pair them together! We hope to see everyone over on the blog soon!
