  • Ben Sheagren

While the rack of lamb Ben Sheagren made for this week’s Key Ingredient was resting, we asked him about his current favorite beers. He talks about them in more detail in the video clip below, but for those who want the Cliffs Notes version: Brooklyn Brewery’s Sorachi Ace (and almost anything else from Brooklyn Brewery), Mort Subite Witte Lambic, Witterkerke Witbier (which the Hopleaf steams its mussels in).
