Beer Month GR is going strong! Last week on the weekend morning news we talked about craft beer pairings, before that it was Craft Beer 101.

This Sunday we are talking about how local chefs are cooking with beer...making their specialty dishes even more special.

Chef Anthony Patton and Brooke Pierce from Atwater Brewery joined the weekend morning news team in-studio to show us how it's done.
