Mike the Gay Beer Guy is obviously more forward-thinking than we are. He’s thinking ahead to fall and what would be best served with an IPA or a bourbon barrel porter, while we’re wondering what we’ll make for dinner … tonight. Anyway, it’s good to have people like Mike on this Earth. Thanks to him, everyone is better prepared.
Here are Mike’s thoughts.
Hi Janet, Hi Rachel -
My tastes in the beer I drink change according to the seasons, which means that now is the time for a big, flavorful IPA or a fantastic Belgian Saison, Tripel, or Witbier. As a brewer, I often forcing myself to think a month, two months, or ever 4-5 months into the future. Thus, this month’s posting is dedicated to the food and beer of the colder winter months. Why would I talk about stewing meat (and heating up my entire kitchen) in July when it’s more than 90 outside? Well, that’s simple … so I can brew my Bourbon Barrel Porter, of course. And what goes well with my Bourbon Barrel Porter? Beef Stew…
