Prima Pilsner – Victory Brewery Company
A shining example of a German style pilsner, this beer is super clean and super dry. It’s made with all German malts and hops. This beer is a wonderful starter and pairs best with lighter fair and salads like Union’s Asparagus and Fennel Salad. Says our beer expert, “Nobody doesn’t like this beer.”
Hoss Rye Lager – Great Divide Brewing Company
This is a light and bready beer. It’s fuller than a regular lager and finishes with a crisp, cereal grain including hints of cherry and dark fruits. A tiny bit of rye also lends a spicy, acidity to the finish. Cold fermented, this beer is in the Märzen lager style of Germany. This beer pairs well with meats, especially the Pitman Farms Roasted 1/2 Chicken.
Swami’s Indian Pale Ale – Pizza Port Brewing Company
Named for a beach in Carlsbad CA, this beer is a quintessential San Diego style IPA and very hoppy. (East coast IPAs are less hoppy and have more malt.) A close cousin to cannabis strain, hops are a preservative and 1 of 4 ingredients responsible for bittering. This beer is piny, slightly flowery and pours clear, clean and very consistent. Pair it with anything spicy like Union’s Shoshito Peppers.
