Around this time of year, we usually honor the state of craft beer in advance of American Craft Beer Week with a special publication that's dedicated to our amazing local breweries, their beverages and events. But as our community's beverage scene explodes, adding not only breweries, but cideries, wineries and distilleries as well as top-notch coffee houses, kombucha companies and more, we just couldn't help ourselves. And so we bring you Drink — a collection of stories that celebrate all craft beverages with the goal of showing you how to DIY.
We've gone to the professionals and sampled the best there is across alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks categories, and the experts have given us tools, techniques and advice for making them at home.

So do try! Have fun, have tasting parties and master the skills. But when you'd prefer to leave the work to the pros, head back out to the artisans who make you that perfect cup of coffee, a balanced gin and tonic, or a smooth and rich chocolate stout every time, with a little more appreciation for their skill and dedication.
