Kojo and chef Pati Jinich look at how history -- and famous names like El Chico, Azteca and even Fritos -- shaped modern Mexican-American cooking in the Washington region and beyond.
For the first time in six decades an original D.C. beer is back in circulation. Heurich lager was one of 13 beers made by the Heurich Brewing Company in the early part of the 20th century. But Prohibition, fires and other challenges at Christian Heurich’s brewery erased the brand from taps and stores citywide. Now, a dedicated band of beer historians and homebrewers have lovingly re-crafted the beer after long hours in the Smithsonian’s archives, educated guesses and years of work with DC Brau. Kojo hears the fascinating story of bringing a D.C. brew back to life.
