Indulge in some guilty pleasures in our Great Taste Magazine 2010 September October issue.

Take a tour through some of Orange County’s best breweries as they offer us some inside information about their brews. Also, Chef Gabriel Caliendo keeps the beer trend going with a look at spice-infused beer.

Everyone’s favorite guilty pleasure, and a great pairing with beer, is in this month’s Sur Le Menu: Fried Appetizers. We put together a list of some of the best fried appetizers around Orange County, from Deep Fried Artichoke Hearts at Cedar Creek Inn to Picadillo and Cheese Empanadas at Cafe Tu Tu Tango. If fried food isn’t your thing but you are still looking for an interesting beer and food mash up, author Judy Saunders gives us a look at some of her recipes all of which use beer as one of the main ingredients. Our final take on beer this issue is on delicious beer cocktails that are great served alone or excellent served with food pairings.
