Beer: The Bruery Saison Rue

Style: Saison

Alcohol: 8.5 percent by volume

Price: About $13 for a 750-ml bottle at Whole Foods Market

Story: Saison, the French word for season, is a rustic beer style developed in Belgium’s French-speaking countryside. Originally low-alcohol brews consumed by farm workers, saisons today can have complex flavors and higher alcohol levels. Saison Rue, from California’s The Bruery, is brewed with Brettanomyces yeast, giving it a funky, barnyardy character.

Pairing: Malted rye and the lemon and pepper notes of the specialty yeast sing with a bone-in rib-eye steak at Lorenzo in Miami Beach, which comes with loads of cracked black pepper and lemon-dressed herbs.

    No slime: Indian dish brings out the best of okra

    I am glad that no one ever forced stewed okra on me during my childhood, because the stories I’ve heard from stewed-okra veterans have been traumatizing. Friends and colleagues have described memories of okra that was sulfurous and slimy and yet left a cottony feeling on their tongues and gums. (This is no coincidence: The okra plant is related to the cotton plant.)
