Our music and beer pairing segment, “With the Grain,” is back! Today, David, who runs Popa’s Tunes music blog as well as the food blog Beer and Groping in America (featuring recipes using my favorite condiment, Lusty Monk Mustard) is sharing his first pairing, so read on and drink responsibly.
The sun melts beyond a distant shore as golden fingers weave their way on the forest floor, touching nooks and crannies for one last time. Droplets gather in pools of mead after they’ve languished long on nuts and fruits. Upon first encounter you are hit with boldbrashness, playful intimacy and profoundly satisfying mixture of old world and new world styling’s tempered by a sparkling approach.
Exotic spices from the East round out this global journey to joy. Get on board. This Monkey’s bound for glory! Strong and sensual, this golden Belgian-style ale glows with goodness.
