I took my wife to our favorite little Greek restaurant in the area for Mother's Day. To my surprise, they had a new Greek beer on the menu: Marathon. A hearty golden color, pleasant malt aroma. A solid beer if not spectacular. And in a brown bottle, too, so as to avoid the skunkiness Hillas can suffer from. The Marathon was good enough to have two, and paired nicely enough with my mousakka. And the baba ganoush. OK, sorry. had to put that last in there. I mean c'mon...can you say "baba ganoush" and not giggle, just a little?
