I had the pleasure of joining my friend Stephanie for a girls date at Heavy Metal Brewing. I had never been to the brewer dinner myself, so I thought it would be a great opportunity to check it out and hang out with a great friend.
Stephanie got us tickets for the first annual Brewers Dinner in which they paired one of their beers with some unique dishes for the night.
We sat down, chatted a bit, and along came the food. I was a little sad that I couldn’t have the Mango or Blood Orange brews (horrible allergic reactions), but they did trade it out for some of their peanut butter stout!
I had two things that I know I need to try again.
- Pickled okra. I have never had it like this before, and I think ill be grabbing some fresh okra at the store and pickling some myself! I think I need a few gallons of this.
- Gazpacho. Before, cold tomato soup never really got my tastebuds going. However, I think I will be trying this everywhere. The chef at Heavy Metal added lots of heat, cucumbers, chunks of tomato, and fresh cilantro. New summer favorite!
It was a great night hanging out with friends and having some good food and beer at the same time.
