Brewers's Fare


Casking-up day requires a certain amount of energy. All that exhausting five minutes of waiting between casks allows time for bothering the kitchen to provide the correct blends of proteins that pull one through. This time it was an experiment in spicy deep-fried meatloaf. I've paired it with a pint of malty special bitter, which brings out the gentle bite of the ketchup coating under the bitter batter made from our bitter. The mallet serves not only the purpose of knocking in shives and keystones, but also wards off intruders eager to rob me of my fare.

You had me at "deep fried". That's the kind of beer and food pairing that sits well with this particular beer lover!

You can do a Reuben as well. You have to stick a plate over it in the fryer to keep it down. Another popular item is a banger, split, stuffed with SPAM and wrapped in bacon. Toothpicks are handy here.

note to self - move to Oregon (you hiring per chance?).

This may be entirely coincidental but the security word for this comment is "nonic" - I kid you not. only an hour until beer o'clock

You can run the pub and brewery while I go to England for a couple of months. It's been way too long.
