What We're Drinking
Justin Pennel

Football season is officially in full swing! Tailgating, viewing parties, cookouts–doesn’t get much better than that. Hopefully if you’re attending any games this weekend, you’re going to a stadium that has a good craft beer selection. If you’re watching at home, why not have a little bottle share and watch the game with friends? Either way, take a page out of our book and have some delicious local craft beers. This is what we’re drinking.

I recently spent an afternoon at @fifthstbrewpub with @gemcityeats to explore their menu and pair their upscale pub food with brewer Darren Link’s excellent beers! We started out with Viva la Saison with Pinot Gris, a Belgian saison that undergoes a secondary fermentation on Pinot Gris juice from the Yakima Valley in Washington. The grape is very subtle, and it’s hard to say which fruit and floral notes are coming from the expressive saison yeast and which are from the grapes. Notes of subtle peach, bubblegum, pome fruits, and sweet florals (the brewery suggests honeysuckle, and that’s spot-on) are beautifully contrasted and accentuated by a snappy, dry finish and white pepper phenolics from the yeast. This evening I’ll share the dish I paired this beer with and why the combination worked. Be sure to head over to @gemcityeats, read her thoughts on the pairing, and give her a follow!

Marsanne (2018) | Tusk Brewing & White Box Brewing

@tuskbrewing and @whiteboxbrewing collaboration #Marsanne from 2018 is an American #sour #ale aged on @leonesscellars mars Marsanne grape pomace. A magnificent small batch sour with rich fruit tones and farmhouse funk. The beer is initially tart but the dry finish is palate cleansing and beautifully well done. My best approximation for how this tastes is similar to Russian River Temptation. Highly recommended. Well done as always guys. . . . . . . . . #beer #brewing #homebrew #homebrewing #homebeer #beerme #temptation #russianriver #tvbeer #temecula #brewery sexybeer #beerporn #whitebox #tusk #beerstagram #instabeer #instabrew #brewstagram #beertography #localbeer #drinklocal #beergeek #beernerd
