rogue beers

IMG_7936 I recently found several Rogue beers at an import store.

These are their 355 mililiter bottles, perfect for one.

I like how Rogue's website gives suggestions as to what foods to pair them with.

IMG_7979 Dead Guy Ale is supposedly good with spicy and pork, so I tried this with a Thai bento.

It had a little bitter ending to it but I enjoyed this pairing.

IMG_8004 The Shakespeare Oatmeal Stout is supposedly good with Seafood, Beef, Dessert and Cheese.

So I tried it with a maguro avocado salad, some beef pâté and other nibbles along with a slice of cheese cake....loved this!

IMG_8349 Hazelnut Brown Nectar is supposedly good with beef, pork.

I had this with some renkon pork patties, but found that it matched more with this....

IMG_8350 Caramel ice cream.

The beer was a bit too nutty for me, but matched caramel ice cream perfectly.

What have you been enjoying these days?

Is that puff pastry thing with the oatmeal stout a petit pate from Bigot?

Arghghghgh! Not just 1 Rogue, but 3?!! A local brewpub here recently brought in Rogue's Hazelnut Brown Nectar as their "beer of the week" so I hope it's still available. Wish they brought in the Oatmeal Stout instead -- it sounds delish!

Take care.

Hey Kat - I love how craft beer is exploding in Japan. Had a nice discussion with the owner of one of the bars here about it.

K and S said...

I miss the petit pate a lot! Have you tried the cerise danois, fromage blanc, or savarin yet?

BTW, has the weather cooled enough for chocolate to be mailed? I'm worried they'll get eaten! Or stale!

K and S said...

no I haven't Rona, but will note these and hope to find them at Bigot :) it is cooler to send chocolates ;)

Take care!
