It is with great excitement that I introduce you to our latest column and columnist: Dipsomaniac, by Holeman & Finch's esteemed barkeep and part-owner Greg Best.
For a long time, I have been frustrated by the lack of drink in the Food & Drink section. In recent years, our city has been undergoing a cocktail renaissance, and I wanted to celebrate that somehow. We've already launched a Cocktail Spotlight column
, which will run the weeks that Greg's column does not, but I wanted to get an informed industry voice to lead the conversation. I wanted the boozy part of the Food & Drink section to feel like it feels when you sit down at a great bar, order a fantastic cocktail, and strike up a conversation with a charming and knowledgeable bartender. Who better than Greg, who has been at the forefront of the aforementioned cocktail revolution? I'm immensely happy he agreed to write the column.
In each column, Greg will address some part of booze culture, as well as providing a recipe. Our enduring hope is that you will take the art of the cocktail and bring it into your lives and homes.
