Two new beers from Avery Brewing Company! First up, White Rascal- A Belgian style White ale. A traditional ‘witbier’ is unfiltered with a high amount of wheat in the mash causing the appearance to have a cloudy, hazy opacity. The signature Belgian witbier spices are orange peel and coriander, Avery incorporates the customary flavor motif into their authentic tasting version. Next, we have Ellie’s Brown Ale. This style is malt dominant and backed up with just enough hops to balance the flavor. This brew is toasty and nutty, with hints of chocolate and vanilla. Very drinkable and perfect on a cool fall evening. Avery’s website provides food pairings, they suggest green curry or pad thai with the White Rascal and beef tacos with chipotle mole for Ellie’s Brown Ale. - Laura
Some beautiful Boston Bib & Escarole lettuce from Rock Dove Farm in West Jefferson, Ohio!
A great way to usher in fall is with Thirsty Dog Brewing Co. Barktoberfest, a locally brewed Oktoberfestbier style beer. The traditional Bavarian lager is medium bodied and richly flavored with toasty malts, Barktoberfest stays true to it’s roots but is modified for the American palate with biting hops on the finish. This is one of the best domestic versions available and it’s brewed just two hours north in Akron. If you’re in the market for a seasonal brew I wouldn’t pass this up. - Laura
Kokoborrego Cheese Company is back! Try their new Whetstone - inspired by cheeses from the Pyrenees - It has a cheddar-like texture with a nutty aroma and sweet and salty overtones. Perfect with an Organic Shiraz!
Now available, Conductor, a delectable Imperial Rye IPA by Columbus’s own The Actual Brewing Company! This brew is a complex blend of fruit aroma, resin, and finishes with a stimulating amount of rye spiciness. At only 47 IBU (bitterness range that goes from 0-120) this is a good option for folks who prefer a balanced IPA. Pick up a bottle and enjoy a fantastic locally brewed beer. - Laura
