Now that I have access to a complete kitchen, I’ve had the chance to get back to one of the ultimate joys in my life – cooking! First up, I decided to recreate the delicious meal kindly prepared for me by the lovely Janelle, with a few tweaks inspired by our visit to LAB Brewing.
I paired this with something I traditionally wouldn’t recommend, but it seemed necessary.
Our family homebrew Yeti clone!
Our pup, Barleywhine (yes, that is actually his name), seemed to think the recipe and pairing was good.
Last night I decided to immerse myself into more of the beer culture of Northern Colorado.
The Verboten Sisterhood meets weekly at the brewery in Loveland.
IN the brewery in Loveland, to be exact. I grabbed a pint of their Angry Banjo Kentucky Common and enjoyed the ambiance as the ladies filtered in, glasses in hand.
After beer nerd chatting and displays of how to pour the perfect beer, one of the Verboten founders, Angie, brought out this devil. I had a few sips and found it necessary to tamper the heat with another snifter of Yeti clone when I got home.
Also… found these on the shelves at a liquor store. No limit. Bought out the shelf. One for sipping now and three to age.
Have I mentioned that I love Colorado yet? Because I do. I really do.
