Since Friday is International Beer Day we decided to knock on the door of one of our favorite local (think globally, drink locally) breweries - Zero Gravity Craft Brewery! They were up for the challenge we posed: Match their masterful brews with our most popular Brownie flavors.
Here are the winning combinations:
Pairs with Zero Gravity Irish Stout. This was an easy one: a classic, rich and well balanced beer with a classic brownie. The dark roasted malt that gives the beer it's dark hue is a the perfect companion to a chocolate forward treat.
Where to find the beer: growler fills at the Flatbread Brewpub
Where to find the beer: 6-packs of cans available all the time, statewide.
Triple Chunk Blondie
Pairs with ZG "Keller" Dry-Hopped Lager. The lightest of the brownies goes exceptionally well with this subtlety hoppy lager. We use a newer German hop varietal called Mandarina Bavaria that has lovely floral and citrusy notes that do not overpower the blondie.
A very special Thank You to the crew at Zero Gravity Brew!
Happy International Beer Day to all!
