There is a French term for local flavor, terroire. As a brewer, I have been searching for that for years. How can I get terroire into my beers? On the West Coast it’s easy: Use West Coast hops. They’re local to them. For me, those hops are not local but have been my only choice until now.
Foraged produce, such as fiddlehead ferns, ramps and morels, make your meals tasty for the next month only

Guinness forms the top half of several inventive beer combinations
Every St. Patrick’s Day, around the world, an estimated 13 million pints of Guinness are swigged, swilled, sipped and chugged. The beloved Dublin stout is known for its smooth body and thick, creamy head. But while many find its texture heavy, Guinness is light enough to float atop many other types of beer—provided it receives a slow, proper pour, over an upside-down spoon. In addition to its low relative density, the dry stout’s distinct chocolaty-coffee flavor makes for many delicious partnerships.
