The History of Pho

by Andrea Nguyen @ Viet World Kitchen

Where did pho come from? Does pho come from the French word, feu? Why does pho matter? To help clarify things, here’s the introduction from The Pho Cookbook (Ten Speed Press, 2017). Pho is so elemental to Vietnamese culture that people talk about it in terms of romantic relationships. Rice is the dutiful wife that you...

Biercito Brewery: A Mexican-German Mashup in Puerto Escondido

by Lauren Barth @ Prostly

Puerto Escondido is the ideal beach town. Situated on the Oaxacan Coast, the small town has escaped the mass tourism and resort culture prominent in many of Mexico's other oceanfront spots. Travlers are drawn to the relaxed vibe in Puerto Escondido, a result of decades of surfers who've landed here in search of the perfect wave. A vibrant expat community has emerged alongside the rich local culture, making it the type of place you could see yourself living. Just like the head brewer of Biercito.

Check out the six Ljubljana food experiences that you shouldn’t miss when you visit the charming Slovenian capital city.  Our first impression of Slovenia was through a window during an overnight late June bus ride from Bologna, Italy to Zagreb, Croatia.

It wasn’t until we visited two months later that we realized the addictive charms that Slovenia’s polished gem of a capital city, Ljubljana, has to offer. Though most travelers spend ...

Mexico City Craft Beer: A Guide to Cervezas Artesanales in CDMX

by Lauren Barth @ Prostly

Mexico City is gigantic. Arriving by plane, I'm always amazed at how far the city sprawls. It's incredibly impressive from above, but even more so when you're on the ground, tucked into one of hundreds of neighbourhoods within the city limits. You're a tiny speck in a huge space, a needle in a haystack. Kind of like craft brewers in Mexico's corporately dominated beer industry.

Beer in Mexico is a fascinating story in and of itself (and one that I summed up for you in my Beer in Mexico article last year). The country is the world's top exporter of beer, with a greater market share than Germany and Belgium combined. Let's take a minute to let that sink in.

Prostly Issue #12: Hecho en Mexico

by Prostly Team @ Prostly

Hola Chicos! We're showcasing and celebrating the beers of Mexico in our latest issue of Prostly. Craft beer has become a phenomenon in this large and diverse country, like with much of the world. But Mexico is a bit of a unique case. Major global beer conglomerates like Grupo Modelo who owns Corona, Victoria, and Modelo (and is itself owned by AB InBev) control the network and resources, making it difficult for independent brewers to access the market and brew cost effectively. It's your classic David and Goliath story.

Fort Lauderdale Craft Beer: Bars, Breweries and Bottle Shops You Shouldn’t Miss in South Florida

by Jean Paul Bervoets @ Prostly

Fort Lauderdale is a microcosm of the weird and wonderful. Its beautiful beaches have for decades attracted hoards of spring breakers, family vacationers, and Canadian retirees alike, eager to escape the winter weather. Its canal system (that locals would tell you are "Venice-like") harbours a transient community of luxury yacht captains. And its main thoroughfare, Las Olas Boulevard, draws wealthy retirees from across the US interested in kitschy art acquisition and riverside home tours of the b-list elite. And if that wasn't interesting enough, Port Everglades, one of the world's busiest cruise ship ports, welcomes new mega-ships daily that inhale and exhale thousands of eager cruisers.

From Plantation to Porter: West Indies Beer Co’s Chocolate Mongoose

by Lauren Barth @ Prostly

Located on the southern tip of the island in Lance aux Épines, West Indies Beer Co. came on the scene in 2014 and was the first new brewery in Grenada in over 50 years. West Indies produces a dozen or so beer styles and ciders, some mainstay and some seasonal, many of which can be sampled in its casual brewpub and beer garden. Fan favourites include the hoppy Windward IPA, Belgian Witbier Drunken Goat and the rotating fruit-forward ciders. For Grenada's annual Chocolate Festival in 2014, West Indies Beer Co. developed a chocolatey take on its Old Mongoose Porter to celebrate the cocoa heritage of the island, and Chocolate Mongoose was born.

Oaxaca Craft Beer Guide: Breweries, Bars and Bottle Shops

by Lauren Barth @ Prostly

The world is having a love affair with Oaxaca. And what's not to love? It's an incredibly vibrant city with young and hip locals, is Mexico's mezcal capital, and boasts one of the country's most interesting food scenes. Oh, and then there's Oaxaca craft beer.

Despite the notoriety of it's mezcal scene, Oaxaca's craft beer community is growing quickly in tandum. In fact, beer is often consumed alongside mezcal and is always to blame for the next morning's hangover as locals insist that its impossible to get one from mezcal alone (a claim I greatly dispute).

Frenchtown Brewing: Resilient Beer in Post-Hurricane St. Thomas, Virgin Islands

by Lauren Barth @ Prostly

After a year in business on the tropical island of St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands, Frenchtown Brewing Company was living every new brewery's dream. Community support was strong, business was booming and plans for expansion were underway. Owners Kevin and Terri Brown had lined up a larger facility, which would allow for a significant increase in production alongside dedicated space for a tasting room and shop. Their new digs would be in Crown Bay, one of the town's two ports that welcome thousands of cruise ship passengers on a near daily basis ensuring a steady stream of visitors, while the original Frenchtown location could be used for more experimentation. In summer 2017, everything had come together and the move was imminent. Then hurricanes Irma and Maria ravaged St. Thomas, and like the best-laid plans, it seemed to all fall apart.
