Bruja On Beer:
The first African-American craft beer festival dropped in Pittsburgh to much success. How will the beer industry respond? The craft beer scene is thought of as predominately white dudes with beards wearing flannel shirts. However more people of color and women are starting to brew. It would be nice to have more diversity in the beer scene.
There’s a new homebrew kit called, The Kitbag Brewery that is meant to get more women to join the homebrew community. It’s the first brewery in a bag. It includes all the equipment, ingredients and instructions amateur brewers need to whip up a batch of beer. I think it’s a good way to exercise your brewing chops.
I was just sent a copy of The Fondue Bible and I have to admit that I’m a bit obessed with it now. Fondue is actually easy make at home and perfect for when you want a warm cozy meal. If you aren’t sure about that you can swing it a home, go slow and use an easy recipe that’s simply cheese and white wine. And if you don’t have a fondue pot, use a Crock-pot instead. Using a Crock makes it easy baby!
The Maldives has just revealed the world’s first over and underwater villas. The Muraka is a 6,000 square foot bi-level residence with an underwater master suite. It descends 22 feet below sea level. If you stay in the villa, you will be able to see schools of fish and other sea creatures living their best life. Of course there’s a fully stocked bar and kitchen situation with your very own butler. It will only cost you around $50,000 a night (USD). Yep, a night!
