We try out a deep dish pizza using the cast iron dutch oven. We got two parts to this: the crust & toppings to prepare. I tried to get everything done in the dutch oven, but you’ll need a few bowls. The dough is pretty simple and can be made after you’ve lit the coals.

I was going to make a Balsamic Braised Chicken dish. But stumbled onto this variation which included not only Balsamic, but red wine &… Continue reading Vinegar Braised Chicken & Black IPA
Here’s a great base chili that you can augment to your taste/heat. We were camping in Maine and decided that this would provide a great meal. This will feed up to 6 people and cost a little over 20$ to gather all of the groceries.
We reviewed Allagash White while out on a camping trip in Maine. This being one of the standard offerings, meaning that you can find this within the state fairly easy at a store or restaurant. The style is a Witbier, or Belgian Wheat beer. 5% ABV.

This is a Belgian White beer, so I was expecting something like Blanche de Chambly, Allagash White; something like that since they… Continue reading Brasseurs du Petit Sault – Tante Blanche
Got my hands on the latest seasonal from Garrison with special collaboration with Beaus Natural from Ontario. Beaus came to this year’s Halifax Beer on the Pier and mixed up their Bog Myrtle with the complex brew that Garrison was preparing.
