Heavy Seas Winter Storm Category 5 Ale

From the Brewer – “Our winter ale brewed with copious helpings of English malts and both U.S. and English hops making it a ruddy hued Imperial ESB in style. Full malty flavors dancing with powerful hop aromas and a lingering yet firm hop bitterness.

Pairs well with very sharp cheddar, stews, and grilled ribs.

Recipe: Winter Storm Veggie Stew

This hearty stew is quite versatile and gets its deep flavor from the beer.  Use whichever root veggies you have on hand.  You can cut down prep time by using leftover grilled veggies.

2.5 quarts of water
4oz Onion soup mix
12oz cream cheese
¼ c dried parsley (or 1/2c fresh)
2 acorn squash
2 butternut squash
10 baby potatoes (cut)
2 large onions, quartered
½ stick butter
6oz of Winter Storm

Cut squash in half and remove seeds, brush with olive oil.  Cut potatoes & wrap in foil with the onion & a little olive oil. Oven roast the squash & potatoes on 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Scoop out squash in large chunks.

Once veggies are ready, mix onion soup & water and bring to a boil. Add cream Cheese, butter, Winter Storm.  Add veggies then simmer on low heat for 1 hour.

Variations:  add carrots, mushrooms, beef.  Anything goes!

Innis & Gunn Oak Aged Beer

From the Brewer – “Using oak to age beer is unheard of. But, the flavours imparted by the oak barrels (previously used to mature bourbon) lend an incredible depth of taste. Think vanilla, toffee and orange aromas, with a malty, lightly oaked palate; soothing and warm in the finish. Luxurious malt and toffee giving way to mellow oak with vanilla overtones. Balanced by the orange peel citrus character. Warming Floral, soothing oak with vanilla more evident, lemon zest. Pour me another!

Awards:

Silver Award – Wine & Spirit International,

Roast loin or belly of pork / suckling pig:
the sweet, juicy texture of the meat goes well with the beer’s citrus character, while its mild bitterness also offsets the salty/sweet taste of the dish. Heston Blumenthal tried this recently at The Fat Duck at Bray as part of a food and beer matching competition; it triumphed over all other beer & food combinations.

OAKED Arrogant Bastard Ale

From the Brewer – “This is an aggressive beer. You probably won’t like it. It is quite doubtful that you have the taste or sophistication to be able to appreciate an ale of this quality and depth. We would suggest that you stick to safer and more familiar territory — maybe something with a multi-million dollar ad campaign aimed at convincing you it’s made in a little brewery, or one that implies that their tasteless fizzy yellow beer will give you more sex appeal. Perhaps you think multi-million dollar ad campaigns make a beer taste better. Perhaps you’re mouthing your words as you read this.

Too many strive towards complacency as a goal. We grow up thinking that the ability to become complacent is the equivalence of success in life. True Arrogant Bastards know that this could not be further from the truth. The real beauty, richness and depth in life can only be found if the journey through life itself is looked upon as a constant chance to learn, live and find life’s passion. Passion threatens the complacent, and fills them with fear. Fear of the new, the deep and the different. We, on the other hand, seek it out. Endlessly, joyously…and aggressively. To this end we bring you the “OAKED Arrogant Bastard Ale.” Another reward for those seeking new sources of passion, and another point of dissension for those who are not.”
