Barley Wines That Stand Out
- Feb 23 '16
Trying Indeed Brewing Company pairings at Northbound Smokehouse, chef Bryce Strickler prepared a heavily smoked beef sandwich with some serious flavor. Using thinly sliced meat, horseradish mayo, smoked Gouda cheese, and a delicious bun, the melt-in-your-mouth meal was just asking to be devoured.
When paired with the Midnight Ryder—the brewery’s American black ale that contains a plethora of different malts and hops—the flavors of both the dish and the beer greatly enhanced. The beer, which reminded Michael of a Schwarzbier with its exceptionally hoppy notes and an intense flavor profile, paired perfectly with the extreme smokiness from the beef.
