Seared Scallops with Smoked Eggplant »

Seared Scallops with Smoked Eggplant

To me, SKINNY DIP invokes grilled citrus notes as well as a little touch of hazelnut on the back side. The hops are not very aggressive but still let you know they are there.  All and all this is a refreshing summer time beer, just perfect for finishing up a long single-track bike ride or a grueling trail run.  As far as food pairing, I would cook up seared scallops to set atop roasted and smoked eggplant puree to enhance Skinny Dip's nutty characteristic. To brighten the hop citrus notes ~a little salad of arugula, cilantro, and pickled red onion dressed with grilled lemon and olive oil- these will work together for a refreshing finish.

Steamed Mussels with Chorizo »

Steamed Mussels with Chorizo

Smells like summer. Citrus rind on the nose with a healthy dose of hops on the palate make this light to medium bodied beer a must for steamed mussels with chorizo. While still light enough to not overwhelm the shellfish, its hops enable it to cut through the spice and texture of the chorizo. Don't forget the twist of lemon!
