Everything you need to know about this weeks episode.

Season Two, Episode Two: Craft Beer

In this weeks adventure, Kyle and the Wisconsin Foodie gang explore the staple of Wisconsin living… BEER.

While we are all too familiar with the cliché of cheese, beer and brats, our team of food experts dug a little deeper (while only scratching the surface) to explore the world of craft beers. Our journey begins at Lakefront Brewery, a staple of the up-and-coming Milwaukee independent craft beer revolution. Master and Commander of Tours, Jim Klisch, gives Kyle a lively tour of the Brewery where he also meets one of Lakefront’s brewers, Frank Lassandrello as he prepares a batch of Holiday Spice Beer. Later on, (after visiting the old County Stadium’s Bernie’s Chalet) Kyle meets up with Wisconsin Foodie favorite Orlando Segura to talk brewery philosophy.

If you haven’t had your fill of Kyle and Orlando to this point, you will thoroughly enjoy our second segment: The Great Taste of the Midwest.

This annual craft beer festival is a secret to most. And it doesn’t help that it sells out of the 4,000 available tickets in a mere 5 minutes. Orlando is our tour guide introducing us to Wisconsin craft beer pioneers such as Carl Nolan of Capitol Beer, Deb Carey of New Glarus, Anello Mollica of Central Waters and much more.

Date: August 9th

In our third segment, Resident Chef Brian Moran teaches us that preparing “mussles” isn’t only possible at the Gym. Brian shows us the ins and outs of shopping for the perfect mussels, followed by a trip Madame Kuony’s Kitchen at the Milwaukee Public Market to prepare Mussels Steamed in Beer.
