How to Make a Grilled Pizza using Arcadia's Sky High Rye

Beer and Pizza.  What's better??  Now that it's grilling season (and it's always beer & pizza season), it's time to grill pizza....and drink beer.  Grilling pizza is tricky, but If you get it right the crust is even crispier and flakier than in the oven and the toppings take on a smoky flavor that I just love.  To add a layer of delicious to this, I thought I might saute the vegetables in an Arcadia Sky High Rye/chicken stock mixture.  The beer adds the perfect amount of gentle bitterness and the stock adds just the right amount savory richness. Add a little pepperoni and fresh mozzarella and you're ready to go.

Recap of Going to Chocolate—er, Copper Canyon: A Chocolate Beerposium with Beer Todd

I like to think that I defy gender stereotypes in many ways. For example, I do not enjoy shopping, I own about five pairs of shoes, and I think I drive pretty badass. I also am not a huge fan of chocolate. I will eat it if it is around, but I don’t buy it myself and rarely find myself craving it. Boyfriend Ken, on the other hand, loves the stuff. So when I heard about a chocolate beer tasting—a Beerposium—at Copper Canyon, I knew we had to go.

Imperial Stouts: Kuhnhenn Brewing Company Solar Eclipse & Big Rock Chophouse Flying Buffalo Imperial Stout

In today’s beer lingo, the words big and flavorful have taken a back seat to terms like intense, extreme, and the often used “imperial”. For over 250 years, one style, Russian Imperial Stout, has been living up to and often exceeding those descriptors. This big and dark beer started life in English breweries and evolved into a style that would allow it to survive the trip to Russia and the Baltic States. Early attempts to ship beer from England resulted in the receipt of spoiled beer by the Imperial Court of Russia. To deliver a drinkable product, brewers increased the amount of both alcohol and hops in the brew, both ingredients acted as preservatives. The recipients of this big rich brew were delighted to say the least. The isolationist tariffs that the Russian Government imposed in the 1820s applied to all imports, except stout. Now that is a testament to the love for this intense brew.

Recap of The Extra Snowy 2012 Suds and Snow Festival

The 2012 Suds and Snow Festival was different than any other Suds and Snow we have been to mainly because 20 inches of snow dropped in a 24 hour period in the Traverse City area. We headed from Lansing to Traverse City on Friday evening, driving right into the eye of the storm and cruising at a speedy 35mph which made a 3 hour drive a very long 5 hour drive. Once we got to the hotel on Friday, we were only there for about an hour when the power went out for good.
