New Times Pairings: An Event for Beer Geeks and Novices Alike

Wine tends to get top billing at New Times Pairings -- in part, because Wine Watch and crew do such a fine job of it -- but the craft-beer department is no slouch either. This year especially is a must for beer geeks and hops nerds.

In addition to familiar faces like Shock Top and Key West Sunset Ale, beer connoisseurs (and casual observers alike) will have an opportunity to dig into less-familiar, harder-to-find, and in some cases new-to-Florida brews this Thursday night.

John Linn, "baron of beer happenings" for Brown Distributing, said the company is teaming with five restaurants for the fifth-annual event and will offer a few unusual picks for the evening.
