Barrels and Bottles New Beer Release

 

The other night, I popped in to Barrels and Bottles to check out the new creations of head brewer, Kim Collins. I tried Piney the First, the sessionable Lil’ IPA, and Hot Lips, a sour mash blonde ale. The first three releases of the B&B flagship line were pretty great, especially Piney. The rest of the line-up for the  brewery/taproom/wine bar is set to come out throughout the month of July.

While sippin’ on some goodness, we also chowed down on the baked camembert with fruit compote and let me tell you – it was to die for. I’m excited to see what else Kim has up her sleeve as the rest of the brews roll out and I’ll definitely be heading back to Barrels and Bottles to get more of that delectable baked cheese.

BLT-double-E Waffle Sandwich

I just about died when I bit into this BLT-double-E waffle sandwich. Maybe you can’t tell from the picture but there are actually fried eggs cooked into the waffle. That’s right, in the middle of each waffle, there is a precious little egg waiting to satisfy your every bite. Also on the sandwich, is lettuce. It is a BLT after all but if you’ve read my previous posts, you know I hate salad and I hate lettuce. I’ll bear through the green stuff though, if it’s on a bacon sandwich. The best part about this BLT-double-E, besides being so darn delicious, is that it’s flexible! Who says you even have to add lettuce? You could add avocado, more bacon, turkey, more bacon….you get the picture.

Summer Sandy with a Saison Vinaigrette

Need a little taste of Summer? Try out this mango-tomato-avocado-smoked salmon sandwich with a saison vinaigrette. To shorten this up a bit, we will just call it the Summer Sandy. It is all kinds of tropical and has that really good sweet and salty thing going on from the salmon and the fruits. Not only is the Summer Sandy light and tasty, its also packed with protein, whole grains, and fiber. You’ll feel like you can conquer the world after eating this creation. Bon appetit!
