Cape Cod Beer Makers Walk Us Through the Brewing Process

Elspeth Hay

Beer relies on four ingredients: malt, water, hops, and yeast. But as evidenced by the number of beers and breweries around the globe, there are infinite ways to combine these ingredients for a tasty beverage. This week on the Local Food Report, Elspeth Hay talks with Todd Marcus of Cape Cod Beer about how he makes beer from start to finish. 

You can find a list of Massachusetts brewers on the Massachusetts Brews Guild website. And there's a nice article on pairing beer with food from an old NYT article by Mark Bittman.
