There are a few topics that we feel deserve special mention and regular column space here at The Kitchn. Those currently include beer, wine, cocktails, and cheese — all fascinating subjects with rich histories and intelligence. Every week our lovely columnists in these areas bring you beer reviews, cocktail history, wine lore, and passionate writing about cheese. Here’s a look back at a few of our favorite posts in 2009 from our beer, wine, cheese, and cocktail columns.
