Cool Beer and Barbecue Video: Beer Diaries at Franklin BBQ in Austin
We like barbecue...and we like beer...so of course this video caught our eye. Greg Zeschuk, host of The Beer Diaries, visits Franklin BBQ in Austin, Texas to chat slow-cooked meat and handmade beer.
In the video, Aaron Franklin talks about how Franklin BBQ got started—and whether the people in line cry if they miss the last bit of brisket. Franklin recently collaborated with local brewery Thirsty Planet to create Franklin Smoked Porter (apparently he's a big porter fan). He tells the tale in the video below, as well as chatting a bit about the local Austin craft brewery scene, plus sharing his recommendations for the best beers to drink with barbecue.
