food.pairing: Flying Dog’s Woody Creek White


Woody Creek, Flying Dog

This is the first official shelf talker of many to come.

Recently I have started collaborating with a local beer market called the Village Commons Market and in the back corner is a a little slice of beervana called  the Beer Cave.  Together, we (Ken, manager of the Market and I) have developed a scaled down talker that will fit in the shelves but still be easy to read.  The talkers will also have a QR code that when scanned will take you to a much more detailed description of the beer and the pairing. Next time you need a beer be sure to make the cave your first stop.  If you don’t find the beer you are looking for be sure to request it and they will do their best to get it for you.  Also, let them know you heard about the “Beer Cave” here.

General suggestion and description: The spicy yeast character and the subtle fruity esters in Woody Creek White complement sauteed bell peppers nicely.  The spicy yeast accentuates the bell pepper bitterness while the subtle fruity esters (especially as the beer warms) enhance the pepper’s sweetness. The elevated carbonation in this beer “scrubs” the savory saute flavors out and refreshes the palate.
 
Specific suggestion: Sauteed bell peppers, diced yellow zucchini and garlic piled high on goat cheese and salted baguette slices.
