Just about every beer we brew is made to pair well with something Chef Juan and his crew craft in the kitchen. Beer is liquid food, afterall. And sometimes, the beers are outright designed to resemble food. Our Pylon series, for example, should make you think of pie. Cranberry Kate should make you think of cranberry salad.
Not the stuff that schlorps out of a can, to be sliced up and maybe garnished. No, the salad I'm thinking of is the kind my mother and grandmother used to make with real cranberries and oranges - a real salad of fresh fruits and flavors. I've tried to recreate that dish, but it never lives up to the memories. I suppose this beer in my contribution to that tradition. I hope it finds a place at your dinner table this winter.
