Post No Bills

In the heart of the West End District, in Sand City, lies a craft beer house that is part tavern, part retail store. And they have some hard to find brews. Sounds right up my alley. Check out their website: Post No Bills Craft Beer House.

So, when our kids' school hosted a movie night on campus, giving us over 2 kid-free hours on a Friday night, Jake, Ulla, Craig, and I packed a picnic dinner - did I mention it's B.Y.O.F? - and headed over there there. Bring. Your. Own. Food. How awesome is that?! I can have the beer house experience while eating what I want to eat.

Between the two of us, Ulla and I loaded up the table with sheep's milk cheese, goat milk cheese, fig-olive tapenade, dry salami, hummus, pita chips, tomatoes, cucumbers, arugula salad, and torrone. Quite a feast.

As delicious as all of that was, I am writing this to rave about the beer. As soon as we settled down at our table, I walked over to the glass coolers and started to peruse the options.

A few weeks ago, we had watched a documentary about beer. Dogfish Head Craft Brewed Ales was one of the featured breweries. Since we watched that, I've been dreaming about their flavor combinations. Midas Touch is the one that piqued my interest - barley, honey, muscat grapes, and saffron. I'm a sucker for anything saffron. And there it was. Right next to it was a bottle of Palo Santo Marron - a malty brown ale with overtones of caramel and vanilla that was aged in exotic Paraguayan Palo Santo wood.

I plucked them both from the cooler and sauntered, triumphantly, back to the table. I found Dogfish Head ales locally! I will definitely be back. And I love that I can purchase bottles and take them home. I see many beer-food pairings in my future.


  1. Since i really know NOTHING about beer, I love going to places like this where I can learn and try new varieties. Sounds great!

Caulibits Crni Rižoto (Croatian Black "Risotto") #Whole30

Last week, I participated in the Wine Pairing Weekend event 'New Year, New Wine." I paired Crni Rižoto with Dingac Vinarija’s Pelješac...and you can read my post: here . I was pouring a Croatian wine and decided to make a traditional Croatian dish. Every seafood restaurant in Croatia has a  Crni Rižoto  (black risotto) on its menu.  Crni Rižoto  is risotto dyed black with squid ink; I used cuttlefish ink for the same effect. However, since arborio rice is not Whole30 compliant, I made a version for myself that used caulibits instead of rice. Ingredients 1 C fish stock (or a combination of fish stock and vegetable stock) 1 T olive oil 1 medium shallots, peeled and minced 1 cloves garlic, crushed and minced 1/4 lb shrimp 1/4 lb squid tubes, cleaned and sliced into rings 1/4 lb scallops 1/4 lb clams, scrubbed 1/4 lb mussels, scrubbed 4 C caulibits, or chopped cauliflower 1 T fresh parsley, minced juice and zest from 1 organic lemon 1 t cuttlefish ink

This month the French Winophiles group is looking at affordable wines from Burgundy.  Host Cindy of Grape Experiences wrote: "Burgundy, or Bourgogne, is known for its wines of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir... as well as Aligote, Gamay, Sauvignon, César, Pinot Beurot, Sacy, Melon in lesser quantities. Many of the well-known wines are quite expensive, but there are plenty of values to be found." Read her invitation here. And there won't be a Twitter chat for this event, so you will have to dive into the articles themselves to read about our pairings and findings. Here's the line-up...
