|This brew has been in the works for quite some time. It is for my neighbor, Dick, who is a pretty zany guy. When we moved in, I started getting him hooked onto “better” beverages. It has been both fun and entertaining.
Lately, one of Dick’s favorite beers is Hoegaarden; aka, that refreshing orange-flavored beer. This was a special batch as he was able to join me for the brew session (#53). It is really just Jamil’s recipe but I tuned it a little for my system.
|We went to a party last night where it’s always fun to bring a dish. This was a real winner! The author calls it a cake, but it is really bread pudding.
Guinness + eggs + cream + sugar + chocolate = Delicious!

|Is there anything better than a Franziskaner (no lemon!) on a summer day? Answer: YES – include an authentic soft pretzel with it. This is one of my fondest memories (Weissbier + soft pretzels) of the now defunct Baltimore Brewing Co.|
