But in the past couple of weeks Iíve had an Indian seafood dish and a cabbage dish, with a saison, and tonight Iím having a beef-with-broccoli with loads of garlic, mustard and honey, and again having saison. The general dryness, full body, soft mouthfeel, lightly mineralic qualities and herbal characteristics just seem to work with most kinds of foods to me - not drowning out the flavor of the meal, but also being able to stand up and assert themselves. I like lambic with a lot of food also, but there arenít that many I can get here, itís expensive, and sometimes that level of tartness is too aggressive. Saison is IT I think.<br><br>(6 replies) <a href=https://www.ratebeer.com/forums/saison-goes-with-everything_288548.htm>Read more of this discussion</a> at RateBeer https://www.ratebeer.com/forums/saison-goes-with-everything_288548.htm https://www.ratebeer.com/forums/saison-goes-with-everything_288548.htm Wed, 17 Jan 2018 02:08:24 EST Hasenpfeffer Posted by muzzlehatch<br><br>A couple of nights ago I made hasenpfeffer - which for those benighted folks who donít know their traditional old German dishes is basically a rabbit stew, with &#40;in the recipe I used&#41; red wine, shallots, bacon, pepper, garlic, a few other things - and spaetzle and beets with a honey-vinegar-mustard glaze.

Posted by DietPepsican<br><br>I was lucky enough to have seats at the chefs counter at Band of Bohemia over the weekend and I have to say it was the best food experience Iíve ever had at a &quot;brewpub&quot;. 15 or so courses of ridiculously well done food paired half wine, half house made beers. The beers are interesting, with unique ingredients. The beer all was on the dry side. The added ingredients were mild, complimentary, and refreshing. Nothing is going to hit you in the face like an imperial stout or an IPA. The hop profiles seems old world, perhaps saaz or something along that range. I dug it quite a bit myself. I do feel they are a bit out of place without the experience, but I also feel like this is a good move forward. I can get used to this sort of thing with food. Seriously. Cocktails were beyond good. A steal in the city at $10-12 each. House made sodas beyond unique. Wine pairings on point. Basically a liquid powerhouse on all fronts here, but I think the beer has the most room to grow. Really looking forward to how that progresses, and a great step in that direction. On the food front, this was a roundhouse kick to the face. Multiple amuse and small bites brought every few minutes. Main course brought at a feverish pace. Big portions. It was a welcome and refreshing to other restaurants that seem to last the whole night. I like both honestly, but can appreciate having the option to come in at 6 and leave before 9 with this many courses. Huge focus on fresh, seasonal, and local where possible. Modern technique but nothing overboard or weird. The giant fire pit as the focus point pumps off wonderful heat in the cold months and is making excellent meat. My wife being a pescatarian that hates mushrooms including truffles was super impressed, they were very accommodating to all of her requests. The service was some of the best in the city without being stuffy. Napkins refolded while in the shitter of course, but totally attentive and shadowing you but you never really notice. Clean shitters. Mentioned wanting a taste of the soda to my wife and a soda randomly shows up. Super friendly service all around. This truly kicked ass. At only the 5th service for the chefs table and first batch of beer, Iím really interested where this goes.<br><br>(10 replies) <a href=https://www.ratebeer.com/forums/band-of-bohemia-food-and-beer-truly-killing-it_282387.htm>Read more of this discussion</a> at RateBeer https://www.ratebeer.com/forums/band-of-bohemia-food-and-beer-truly-killing-it_282387.htm https://www.ratebeer.com/forums/band-of-bohemia-food-and-beer-truly-killing-it_282387.htm Wed, 17 Jan 2018 02:08:24 EST Just mulled some beer...
