Previously on the Flying Dog Super Bowl Recipe Blog Post: We have teamed up with Chef Niko of The Roasthouse Pub to put together six recipes we are confident you can create at home. The recipes are made with, and pair with Flying Dog, so plan to pick up extra beer when you are at the store this week so you can sip while you stir.
As we continue our countdown to the big game, we are excited to release recipe #2, Roasthouse Jerk Chicken Tacos. We guarantee if you bring this to the party, people will be talking about your cooking long after the water cooler discussions of the commercials subside.
We recommend starting with the video accompaniment below which shows some of the techniques used in preparing the dish while also making you salivate.
Now it’s your turn. Follow the recipe, avoid the Pinterest fail and Feel free to send us photos of your final creation as well.
Are you too lazy to cook this yourself? Are you confident you can’t even make a bowl of cereal? We still have you covered. Chef Niko will make a batch just for you. Stop in to the Roasthouse Pub on Sunday and order this treat off the specials menu.
Did someone say half-day? Yes. We did. We vote that you should put in a solid morning at the office before taking a lunch break you don’t intend on returning from, and make your way to the brewery. You deserve it. You’ve waited all year, through countless debates, lots of ch-ch-changes and the highs and lows of another season in the books. Now your patience has paid off. The 2016 releases of our bourbon and our rum Barrel-Aged Gonzo is finally here.
Our bourbon Barrel-Aged Gonzo spent the last few months aging in A. Smith Bowman barrels from our friends in Fredericksburg, VA 90 miles south of the brewery. As a result of the aging, you will pick up vanilla notes from the oak and soft whiskey warmth in addition to robust roast, chocolate, and coffee malt character.
We will also have rum Barrel-Aged Gonzo for the second year so you can continue to add to your rum diary. You’ll note the inviting island smell when you uncork this beast. This beer is perfect to stand on its own as an after-dinner drink – a craft beer alternative to brown spirits in the study.
It all goes down on Monday February 8th from 12pm-8pm. The tasting room will be open for tours and samples, flights, growlers and more at our Barrel-Aged Gonzo. release party.
2016 Barrel-Aged Gonzo purchases are limited to one per style, per person. Vintage Rum Barrel-Aged Gonzo 2015 will also be available. Supply of these beers is limited, so get here early to get your hands on it. Availability is not guaranteed once the release begins. Doors will open at noon.
To the uninitiated, you may not know that we are not big fans of waste. Our spent grain goes to local farmers and fed to their livestock, and we recycle more than just glass and cardboard.
We also like to team up with others who feel the same way, which is why partnering with Hungry Harvest made us feel like a natural woman. The company, based in Columbia, MD is guided by two beliefs:
1. Every person has the right to eat healthy.
2. No food should go to waste.
We like that line of thinking and we are excited to celebrate their appearance on a reality show that doesn’t feature Donald Trump (Shark Tank) this evening. Tune into ABC tonight at 9 pm to watch the newest episode where Hungry Harvest will pitch their “ugly” produce subscription service. Until then, learn more about there mission here.
