A perfect pairing: February 27

This weekend at the Breakside Brewpub, we’re serving a Sonoran-Style Sausage that we think pairs perfectly with both, our Tropicalia and Nick’s Dunkel.

mmmmm, sausage

 

A bit about the food: We’re using Zenner’s double smoked sausage stuffed with bacon and cheddar, and topping it with a combination of (more) bacon, (more) cheddar, house salsa, a homemade avocado sauce, and cilantro.

With the Dunkel, Munich malts interplay perfectly with the bacon and sausage, combining smoke with sweet. We find that it harkens to a traditional German pairing of some of the spicier dogs with Munchener. Cheddar and Dunkel play well together.

As for the Tropicalia, it’s all about the heat! Some of the spice from Breakside’s house made salsa really bring forth the lychee fruit in the Tropicalia. We think the aji amarillo peppers in the beer help us to achieve the “Sanoran” side of our creation.

Either way you go, we think you’ll love it. Come on down this weekend and let us know what you think!
