A meal made with love on Lyell

Brunch brew

Last week Nate Kester released his second sour out of Irondequoit Beer Company's five-barrel brew house. Dubbed Permanent Waves, it's a modest 4.5 percent sour brew flanked by 125 pounds of blood orange and 150 pounds of mango puree.

Going whole hog

Casual French-American bistro The Peppered Pig celebrates rustic, down-to-earth French classics like cassoulet, Croque Monsieur, and the humble roast chicken, as well as American mainstays with a French twist.
