BLC Says:
Surge Protector Sandy Relief Ale is, as you may have guessed, an ale that was brewed to help support victims of Hurricane Sandy. Among the thousands who faced damages from Sandy were Long Islands Barrier Brewing Company in Oceanside, who had the majority of their brewing equipment destroyed by flooding. The proceeds from this beer support Barrier’s rebuild as well as Long Island Cares, a local charity that has been active in the community for over 30 years. In addition to benefitting from this brew in recent years Long Island Cares has also partnered with Blue Point Brewery to collect donations during their annual Cask Fest (if you are attending this Saturday, bring something to support Long Islanders in need). keep reading...

Irelandia (Ireland + India) – Curried Cabbage & Pairings

0 comments

Saint Patrick’s Day is almost upon us and here at BLC that means cooking up something delicious (and maybe wearing a little green as well). Since no doubt we will soon be hearing the (let’s be honest, sometimes blaring) tones of bagpipes in the air it seemed like we should prepare something to honor this holiday from the Emerald Isle. It seems no Irish inspired meal is complete without cabbage, so in addition to our Blind Bat Stout Stew, we also cooked up a curried cabbage side dish. You may be asking, “Is this another recipe with a twist?” Yes, yes we did decide to add a twist to our cabbage. While we think corned beef and cabbage is a fine choice for your St. Pat’s celebration we wanted to try two recipes that were a bit different and offered some more depth of flavor to pair with the beers we would be enjoying. This side dish was savored with our stout stew, but it would make a suitable side dish for just about any St. Patty’s Day meal. This could also be turned into a hearty main course on its own by adding meat or tofu in the mix. This dish is savory, a little spicy and was quite tasty. keep reading...
