The infusion of kafir lime and lemongrass in Uncommon Brewers’ Siamese Twin Ale gives the drink a distinctly Southeast Asian nose, and its creamy texture softens the sizzle of tropical cuisine. The beer’s lively aromatics and gentle acidity match particularly well with the roasted chili and sweet seafood flavors of Kin Shop’s panfried crab noodles.

Thanks to the newly opened Kin Shop by Top Chef Season 1 winner Harold Dieterle, Monsoon Valley Wines got a nice mention in today’s review of the 2-month old, high-end Thai inspired restaurant in the Village Voice.
From the review:
The wine list is mercifully priced, and the most interesting bottle comes from Thailand: a Monsoon Valley red ($29) blended from Shiraz and the indigenous Pokdum grape. The color is pale and the taste is brittle and slightly sour—and the bouquet will surely change your mind when it comes to matching Thai food and beverages. Spicy food eaters: You can now throw away your whites!
