Not the most photogenic food but that didn’t make this any less delicious.
Snuck this one in in the knick of time. Recipe from Ready For Dessert from David Lebovitz, which Elise always keeps some in the freezer for just such an occasion and only bakes a handful at a time so they’re gone before they go stale. I’m allergic to chocolate, but these are 100% worth it.
Trying to do my part to ONLY drink American Craft Beer this week (for American Craft Beer Week, obviously). Yesterday was Sierra Nevada, today, Brooklyn. Not sure what tomorrow’s game plan is just yet. Thursday’s Rushing Duck at The Excelsior Pub, and Friday will be an all Dogfish Head affair at The Ruck. What are you drinking this week to show your love for American Craft Beer?
A shot from this weekend’s pork butt, after an overnight of brining and a good rub down. I hope you now have this song stuck in your head the rest of the day.
It’s that time again. Elise and I cleared all the shelves in the cellar, went through each one by one in CellarHQ, gave the boot to some of the beers that, while not bad beers, I’m not intentionally aging or anything and should get drank ASAP. Kinda split things into “Never Drinking, Ever,” “Open for Bottle Shares/Trades,” and “Why are you still holding onto this?” categories. Expect some boring, uninteresting checkins from the last category over the next couple of months while I clear that shit out.
Over the winter while we were up in Portland for Zwanze Day we got the chance to to hit up Allagash after Maine Beer Co. and nice visit at New England Distilling Co. Although Upstate NY doesn’t get much Allagash love, I’ve had plenty of their beer on my travels and they’ve been one of my favorite all around breweries for a long while, from the core lineup to their special releases.
