If you’re reading this blog, support craft beer, and live in Texas, you likely know 4 Texas breweries took home medals at this year’s GABF, an incredible win for the Lone Star State and its growing craft beer scene. One of those breweries was Austin Beerworks; they received a silver medal in the English-style summer ale category for their Peacemaker.
I met one of the owners, Michael, at a Craft Beer Tweet Up and he was kind enough to invite us on a tour; uh.. yes, please! We took him up on the offer and visited the brewery a couple of weeks later. The guys who work there were all awesome – welcoming, informative, passionate about what they do, and they answered all of my I’m-a-lightweight-and-two-drinks-in questions.
In honor of that win, and because we now had a 6 pack in our fridge, we created this tasty snack based around the Peacemaker:
- Grilled bread
- Rictotta Cheese with Pale Ale mixed in
- Spinach salad
- Duck Pâté
- Hard sheep milk cheese
- A better French 75
