Cheers! A Toast to Local Drink

Jason BoyettComment

My cover story for the November issue of Amarillo Magazine was all about alcohol. The idea for the feature was that the city's growing interests in organic food and higher-end food choices were also spilling over into an appreciation for better choices in drink—from craft beer to specialty cocktails. So we provided an in-depth guide to the local drinking scene, from one of the best wine lists in Texas (Macaroni Joe's) to one of the top two or three bars in the United States in terms of number of beers on tap (I Don't Know Sports Bar & Grill).

It was a fun issue to write. (I'm not saying anything about the research.)
