summer dogfish beer project - day3

disappointed with tweason ale – gluten free with gusto.  the hints of molasses & pit fruit in this sorghum-based beer are balanced by vibrant strawberry & honey notes \ too fruity & light for me, 6% abv \ moving on to kvasir \ much better flavorwise!  & 10% abv/ the dinner choices this year and last year are not as great compared to 3 & 4 years ago \ so i’ve been sticking to the lunch|smaller bites / salmon caesar salad is great!

from the dogfish website:  The recipe for Kvasir was developed with the help of chemical, botanical and pollen evidence taken from a 3,500‐year‐old Danish drinking vessel. The vessel, made of birch bark, was found in the tomb of a leather‐clad woman Dr. Pat says was probably an upper-class dancer or priestess. The analysis pointed to the ingredients used in this unique brew: wheat, lingonberries, cranberries, myrica gale, yarrow, honey and birch syrup. The base of Kvasir is a toasty red winter wheat, and the bog-grown berries deliver a pungent tartness. While a handful of hops is used, the earthy, bitter counterpunch to the sweet honey and birch syrup comes from the herbs.
