Sip and Sizzle
May 23, 2013
Sausage and beer are practically BFFs and our beer gurus Don and Mike have put together five great match-ups. All of our Fresh to Market sausage is handmade on site just like the butcher shops of the good ol’ days. We use all natural seasonings free of nitrates, nitrites, phosphates and MSG and we always use natural ground beef, pork and chicken.
Teriyaki Pineapple: Boasting five different hops, Coronado Brewing Company’s Idiot IPA has just the right amount of malt to balance out the sweetness of our Teriyaki Pineapple sausage.
Beer & Bratwurst: The Weihenstephaner Hefe Weissbier with our Beer & Bratwurst sausage is a pairing Germany perfected and we could not agree more. The beer begins with subtle flavors of orange and banana bread with a touch of lemon and finishes with a little clove, pepper and a touch of creaminess.
Mild Italian: Boulavard Brewing’s 6th Glass Quadrupal initially hits the palate with a presence of dark fruit followed by a little spice and a touch of hop. However the caramel sweetness of the malts that dominate this beer just enhances the zesty nature of fennel and spice of our Mild Italian sausage.
Burgundy and Pepper: We are proud to partner with an up and coming local brewery; Track 7 out of Sacramento. Their Daylight Amber offers the bitterness of an IPA upfront, but it is the roasted malt body that finds a perfect balance of the fruit from the burgundy and pepper that make this pairing complete.
Kansas City BBQ: Hanger 24 DIPA’s fresh hops, citrus and tropical fruits pair beautifully with the savory tomato and touch of spice that our Kansas City BBQ sausage has to offer.
