Recently, we got into a lively discussion in the office on the virtues of wine versus beer—I’m not much of a beer drinker myself, but there are a few kinds I like. One staffer proposed that our taste in beer tracks to the wine we like, so we decided to go to a pro for arbitration: Greg Engert, the beer director for Neighborhood Restaurant Group, which includes the award-winning, brew-centric Birch & Barley and ChurchKey restaurants in Washington, D.C.. He offered his thoughts on what a novice beer drinker might be interested in, plus specific craft beer recommendations based on wines you already like. Enjoy!
