Nobody’s Bracket is Busted with McShane’s take on the Sweet Sixteen! This Saturday you can sample an incredible selection of Lagers and Meads from SIXTEEN different breweries paired with an appetizer buffet specially created by their chef!
Here are my recommendations:
Tip-Off with Chef’s Strawberry Prosciutto Salad and Weihenstephan Original Lager, “a flavorful beer with a fine poured white foam. Featuring a mild hoppy note and a pleasantly fresh spicy taste” and “brewed according to…centuries-old brewing tradition on the Weihenstephan hill.” ABV 5.1%
Then smoke the competition by going for a Fast Break with Chef’s Smokey Shrimp & Potato Empanadas paired with Redstone Meadery Passion Fruit that’s Fab Five are a “Bright, tropical front, tartness in the middle, with a dry, sharp finish” that comes “from the acidity of the passion fruit.” ABV 8%
Go strong in the second half with Chef’s Beef Medallions paired with Atwater Voodoo Vator, “a stronger, darker version of the Bocks of Germany, dopplebocks were designed in monasteries for sustenance during fasting,” which, along with Chef’s tips will keep you in the game! And, come on, who doesn’t root for the ‘home’ team, and love a beer brewed in The D! ABV 8%
Your Sixth Man is Chef’s Roasted Cauliflower & Red Skins, which plays well with all the Meads and Lagers in McShane’s Line-Up! It’s Alley Oops AND Bottoms-Up when you ‘Slam Dunk’ a Founders Solid Gold Premium Lager, whose “brewery was built on an attitude of no regrets—taking risks to bring the best beer possible to our fellow renegades and rebels.” This lager is a Buzzer Beater with an ABV of 4.4%.
And Chef’s Lemon Layer Cake puts the ‘Sweet’ and the #Win in your game! Especially when you pair it with a Bell’s Lager of the Lakes, “Following in the tradition of Czech Pilsners by offering a combination of firm malt and herbal hop bitterness, Bell’s Lager Beer is as refreshing and crisp as a swim in the Great Lakes.” Or a bucket of Gatorade over your head. ABV 5%.
But no matter what, your picks at McShane’s Lager and Mead Tasting are sure to be WINNERS!
