The summer celebration of Southern food culture hits newsstands on May 23rd, and features Charleston's Coast Brewery and High Wire Distilling Co. in its “A-Z Guide”
Southern Living magazine, a monthly celebration of life in the South published by Time, Inc., will devote nearly 50 pages of its June 2014 issue to all things food-related. The issue is really the first of its kind for the magazine and tackles everything about food that speaks to the culture of the American South right now—the agricultural renaissance and focus on vegetables, the state of Gulf and Atlantic seafood, highlighting key trends, and tapping into some of the region's keenest minds.
Fifteen pages of simple, minimal-ingredient summer recipes, and a 32-page “A to Z” people, place, and provision guide are spread throughout the issue. The photo-heavy “A to Z” guide highlights 26 Southern people, places, provisions, do-it-yourself tactics, tools of the trade, and more.
Two of these highlights being craft beer and small batch spirits from Charleston. Southern Living features:
- Coast Brewery's 32/50 Kölsch under “B: Beer”. The feature leads to an online a state-by-state guide to Southern Living staffer's favorite craft beers at www.southernliving.com/beer
- High Wire Distilling Co.'s sugarcane rum, as one of the four best small batch spirits in the South, under “X: A Trend”
Southern Living's readership is national, thus introducing millions of people to the breadth of culture in Charleston, and its contribution to the far-reaching conversation about Southern food and culture.
