Grain-based goodness

Happy snow day, Colorado Springs.

Need a warm drink?

Here's a unique gin-based hot toddy recipe I received yesterday from Rob's Mountain Gin:

And onto some news: As a followup to my Side Dish column this week, in which I chat with Trinity Brewing Company's Jason Yester about the brewery's expansion, check out Focus on the Beer's similar write-up.

You'll get some more details on upcoming beers which my space restrictions didn't allow, plus see a photo of some of the new storage equipment recently installed.

Moving to the subject of grains that haven't undergone fermentation, former Extraordinary Ingredients purveyor Kerri Olivier shares a link to good news on a product she used to sell.

Lotus Foods recently received a Biodiversity Leadership Award from the Union of Ethical Bio Trade.

According to this Food Navigator post, consumer pressure over biodiversity in the food chain is on the rise.

That's good, since according to an Organic Consumers Association newsletter from today, Monsanto earned the title of "worst company on Earth" from the Natural Society.

Here's some info on that:

And now that I'm done awkwardly stringing disparate food and drink news together, I'll let you get back to enjoying that snow.
