Ask chefs to dish on their favorite variety of rice and you'll likely hear words such as fragrant, floral, nutty. But when craft brewers talk about the grain, it's not quite as reverent. "Rice is considered by many brewers what the nasty industrial brewers use to water down their beer," says Maureen Ogle, author of "Ambitious Brew," a book exploring the history of brewing in the U.S. "Craft brewers treat rice almost as if it's rat poison." But recently, a handful of craft brewers in California, Colorado and Washington are challenging that blanket disdain for the grain by introducing complex, full-flavored rice beers.

Basic rice congee Total time: About 1 hour Servings: 4 to 6 Note: Adapted from "The Seductions of Rice" by Jeffrey Alford and Naomi Duguid. They write, "Some people like their congee thin, with the rice grains cooked until broken and somewhat shapeless. We prefer it the consistency of a thick soup, with the rice grains intact. You can adjust the consistency by adding extra water. The list of accompaniments given here is meant as a guideline. Sprinkle them on top of your congee or stir them in; feel free to add other textures and flavors to the array of garnishes and condiments you set out on the table."
