Food & Beer Friday :: Well there's a "fancy" letter in the name.

I've been a bit busy this week celebrating my birthday week, but rest assured I'll be back next week in full swing with updates and recipes and other fun!  For now, let's get to this week's spot light!

I have already featured a Heavy Seas beer, and I promise I'm really going to mix things up come pumpkin beer season (it's scary how quick it's coming!).  Since it's still summer, this Märzen vienna-style lager is just perfection.  I have the worst memory but remembered really enjoying this beer at a Heavy Seas event.  The second tasting did not disappoint!

This beer is light in color and the low alcohol level makes it easy to drink on a summer evening (or day...who doesn't love day drinking?).  The last is clean and easy.  In my opinion, there's not a prominent hop flavor, more malty but not a lot.  The aroma is sweet and appealing.  I'd completely recommend it for you beer newbies!

The food pairings are almost more appealing than the beer just amazing!  How much do you want to drink this beer coupled with the Pepperoni Pyrate bread?  Think Bisquick + cheese + pepperoni.  I'm in.  Heavy Seas also recommends a Märzen Mushroom Gravy which just looks delicious (and vegetarian!).

Mmmmmm... Heavy Seas. My fave is Loose Cannon and lucky for us they serve at least some sort of Heavy Seas at almost every bar in Baltimore. Delicious stuff!
