* Not Local : Yes we have strayed here and there on our 100% local beverages. Even we have our limits and occasionally I will drop a few dollars at Downeast Beverage and purchase some high quality brew. We also have had our moments of caffeine withdraw and on those rainy afternoons... we will indulge in a few shots of espresso or a french press full of Matt's Coffee. However we stay dedicated to our food sources being complete of Maine origin 100% !
Anyhow that being said, yes I put a little of the beer in the batter and managed to drink the rest. Cassi even took a small glass of the pure clean German doppelbock. Im a beer geek, I love trying different varieties from various different regions... however if i were to pick three brewers that make a wide array of very high quality beer I would narrow it down to Cantillon, Allagash, Mikkeller .
Ok enough beer talk... dinner was great with Cassi throwing the potatoes in an hour before I got home making them cooked to perfection and on the brink of bursting with juice. A wonderfully nourishing dinner that had me pan frying the $2.99/# fish in a beer/egg mixture then breaded in fresh ground cornmeal that was tossed with ground herbs (sage, rosemary, thyme). From there it is onto the pan of hot sunflower oil and a tablespoon of butter. Yummmm!
