Fruity Beer

3 Aug

Fruity beer seems to be the new thing in beer. Well, I guess fruity is just the new thing in everything!

Anheuser-Busch is now selling a beer called “Wild Blue” which is a blueberry ale. As the Anheuser-Busch press release says “Not suited for timid or reserve beer drinkers…” this is a real alcoholic beverage with an alcohol content of 8%. That is more than your average beer (Budweiser is 5% – check out this cool list I found!) but it isn’t noticeable at first. That is because this beer is absolutely, by far, the sweetest beer I’ve ever tasted. We got to taste it at my first visit to Busch Garden’s Brewmaster’s Club (Yes, now I’ve been to BGT’s and Sea World Orlando’s!).

This is not a beer you drink when you are looking to finish off a six pack by yourself and I wouldn’t recommend pairing this beer with most “beer food.” So don’t crack this open while you are grilling those chops!

While this Blueberry Ale is starting to spread throughout the US, I saw a report on Slashfood.com linking to this page talking of the upcoming arrival of Früli in America. Früli is a Belgium Wheat mixed with strawberry juice, yum?

I like strawberries more than I like blueberries, but beer? I just don’t know if I can be a fan of fruity beer!

August Food Holidays

1 Aug

Since my good friend, the keeper of monkeys, USED to do a post every month telling us what we should be aware of for the month, I decided to write my own. What else is most important to me but food? So when I saw this Slashfood.com post I thought, “wow there is a lot of food to celebrate!”

First off, it is National Catfish Month!

On top of that there are 28 food related “holidays” in August!!

  1. August 1 National Raspberry Cream Pie Day
  2. August 2 National Ice Cream Sandwich Day
  3. August 2 National Ice Cream Soda Day
  4. August 3 National Watermelon Day
  5. August 4 National Chocolate Chip Day
  6. August 5 National Mustard Day
  7. August 6 National Root Beer Float Day
  8. August 7 Raspberries ‘n Cream Day

  26. August 28 National Cherry Turnovers Day
  27. August 30 National Toasted Marshmallow Day
  28. August 31 National Trail Mix Day

Notice there seems to be a lot of dessert days? Probably because no one wants to celebrate brussels sprouts!

Do you think I made that up? Nope, thank you interwebs! I found that information on this page. If you scroll down far enough you will find the listing of food related holidays!

Hopefully some of those days will have associated food giveaways at a restaurant here or there and if I catch wind of it I will pass it along!
