Yeah, yeah, I'm reverting back to my "light" beer ways, but you'll have to go beyond that. Sierra Nevada Summerfest is a "pilsner-style lager." It's definitely a light beer, especially for the Sierra Nevada brand. It's a refreshing, easy-to-drink beer that is certainly a summer beer. It definitely has a hoppy flavor, so don't try it if you're used to the Miller Lite variety. The great thing about this beer is that you can typically find it in your local grocery store, unlike Victory Prima Pils.
[Go pick up this "crisp summer lager" immediately!]
While I'm not sure we'll make it all the way up to Chico, CA to visit the taproom and restaurant, I would definitely recommend a visit! They put a lot of thought into their food using local, organic meats and vegetarian items that change based on the season! Check it out.
Now let's talk beer and food pairings. You know I am a simple girl. One thing I enjoy about D being out of town is the fact that I can eat the same, simple meals day after day. It may be simple, but why don't I break it down for you?
That's right! Black beans and quinoa. It's that easy. I'm real professional over here. Try it. You won't be disappointed!
And there you have it friends...a perfect, simple, summer dinner. Enjoy!
