Fundamentals #108 – Drop Project x Tate Haze NEIPA

Should craft beer be considered an artform? A lot of beer these days could perhaps be described as “artisanal”, and some breweries are so confident in what they make – and how they make it – that they also use the term to describe themselves. “Artisanal ales” does have a lovely ring to it, after all. For a small brewery, doing things the hard way, it makes sense to use the term. Like a lot of other small food industries including cheesemaking or baking, the process of mashing in grains, stewing hops and carefully managing fermentation is indeed artisanal. But when...

The Beer Lover’s Table: Paneer Kathi Rolls and Drop Project Crush Session NEIPA

I had my first kathi roll many years ago, as a college freshman in New York City, though I may have been too tipsy at the time to properly appreciate it. A tiny joint a few blocks from campus called Roti Roll routinely stayed open until 4am. I remember deliriously shoving my face into a roll after a night out, heedless of the mounting chilli heat until it was too late. More recently, I fell in love with the Paneer Roomali Roll at Dishoom, from which this recipe takes some inspiration. Kathi rolls – sometimes known as frankies – are...
