Before everyone goes nuts about the beer diet...

Haven't drank much beer since the college days. Never really liked the taste and it never seemed cold enough. But the new craft beers have really been exciting, so I have on occasion indulged with the right dining experience. Last night we celebrated a friends birthday at the Crab Hut. The food is served in a plastic bag and you are encouraged to slop all over the butcher-paper covered table. Crab & shrimp La-style. I demured and had crab cakes on a paper plate with a plastic fork and sweet potato fries that I shared with everyone. And as a go with beverage...
Purple Haze® is a lager brewed with real raspberries added after filtration. It is brewed with pilsner and wheat malts and Vanguard hops. The berries add a fruity aroma, tartly sweet taste and a subtle purple color and haze...you may see fruit pulp in the beer.
This beer is best served with salads or light fruit desserts, such as soufflés or chiffon cakes. Many people enjoy it with chocolate desserts. Purple Haze® pairs well with certain cheeses, such as ripened Brie or any dessert made with mascarpone. It’s also great paired with entrees prepared with fruit, especially citrus. Consider enjoying Purple Haze® alone at the end of your meal as dessert.
