    I paired up Bell’s Porter with a Candied Bacon Ice Cream that we made with Bell’s Porter and it did really well together. I also drank Bell’s Pale Ales and Two Hearted with a Dogfish Head recipe for 3 Cheese & IPA Dip. It was blue cheese, cream cheese and cheddar and boy was it tasty!!

    Hi MIke! I’m a long time reader/lurker, first time poster. I’ve recently gotten really into blonde beers (Ramstein’s Double Platnium being my favorite) and would love to try the Zwaar Blonde you mentioned. Is it hard to find? When I’m not filling my growlers at Ramstein’s brewery, I usually go to a local liquor store in Boonton. Do you think they’ll have it? If not, where do you suggest purchasing it?

      Hi Joseph, Greg makes some fine beers. Had the Classic with dinner last night. The Zwaar is a pilot test batch from Ommegang. They only produced 108 bottles, so it is very limited and not available at stores. But I’m sure Kevin over at the liquor outlet can recommend some other belgian beers. Cheers!

  3. Wow, Peter! That’s quite a job you’ve done with the feast and the pairings. Any ideas what beers you’re going to have for the Christmas edition?

    Like J. Penola, I’m a longtime reader/first time poster. I prepared a whole Thanksgiving dinner too complete with pairings. The dinner was pretty much the basics: turkey with mushroom gravy, sausage stuffing, green bean casserole, candied yams, and pumpkin pie. The entrees were paired with Woodchuck Winter Cider and Barefoot Pinot Noir (to go with the mushrooms) and the pumpkin pie was wonderfully paired with Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout.

      Sounds Good greg! Love the Brooklyn Choc Stout. They’ve bee n brewing hat beer for about 15 years. One of the first beers they made in the Brooklyn Brew House (not at their contact brewery F.X.Matt. I’m starting to plan out my Christmas Eve feast. Have 2x as many people as I did for Thanksgiving!
