Beer #1: Vanilla Porter/Stout
Notes: There aren’t even enough reviews on this beer to confirm whether it’s a porter or a stout, and there’s no info on it on the website. So, let’s go to the food pairing. Vanilla stout, paired with sour cherry and vanilla bread cheese? You like. I like. We all like together.
Beer Advocate: N/A
Rate Beer: N/A (not enough reviews)
Beer #2: Monadnock Mountain Ale
Notes: “American Pale Ale. Medium body, assertively bitter.” Paired with a stromboli. Sounds like a Friday night made in heaven to me.
Beer Advocate: B+ (2 reviews)
Rate Beer: N/A
Summary: A reliable source says their beers are approachable and satisfying, and pair well with food but won’t “wow.” Hard for me to say given the limited information I have. I am, admittedly, enticed by the idea of a vanilla stout/porter with vanilla bread cheese. So I’ll hit this up if only for that.
