About

Shrimp and beer – a natural combination. Rosemary, sage, thyme, parsley and beer on the other hand are not your typical team of flavors. At a recent beer tasting I was introduced to what was tagged a “food beer.”

It’s mild, slightly bitter but not in an unpleasant way and with a distinct herbal hit towards the back of your palate. This brew would blend well with any meat you’d use rosemary, sage, thyme, and parsley on. Try it in your next beer bread. Different brews do alter the end result of the dough.

Beers make an excellent marinade for steak burritos, beef braised ribs, and these shrimp and stir fried cabbage fajitas with a horseradish sour cream dill sauce!
