This week, I’m going to devote this space to beers, which have been welcome guests at Island barbecues and beach picnics over the past holiday weekend. There are times when a beer is the perfect drink, especially with grilled foods or cold seafood on a summer day. I knew for this topic I should not trust my limited knowledge, but turn to my brother-in-law Hank McManus, who has a more extensive batch of brain cells dedicated to brews than anyone I’ve ever met. In fact, for several years Hank wrote his own column on beer, for the newspaper “AM New York.”
