BLC Says:
Long Island Potato Stout by Blind Bat Brewery is their offering in the category of “dry stout”. The beer is brewed using organically-grown, local, Long Island potatoes. These potatoes are boiled, mashed, and then added in the “mash” phase of the brewing process during which, a mix of milled grain (typically malted barley with supplementary grains or adjuncts such as corn, sorghum, rye or wheat), known as the “grain bill“, and water, known as “liquor”, are combined and heated. Brewing the beer by this process is why it is branded with the charming tagline “Twice Mashed”. You may ask yourself, “Why brewed with potatoes?” to which Blind Bat Brewery responds, “Potatoes add sugars that supply dryness to this extra-dry stout.”, on the beers well designed label. keep reading...

As you may have recently read, we here at Beer Loves Company cooked up a meal (detailing the experience and providing the recipe) here on our website. With only one cup (8 oz.) of beer required to make our stout stew and our chosen beer, Blind Bat Brewery Long Island Potato Stout, coming in 16.9 oz. bottles we had some left over. What better way to enjoy these “leftovers” than with some tasty cheese? Since the our stew, while not a difficult recipe, does take some time to cook you’ll definitely want to enjoy a snack and a beer while it simmers away. In the spirit of St. Patricks Day week, we selected a Dubliner Irish Cheddar made with Irish Stout and also a Fourme d’Ambert (aged over 60 days) to pair with the beers we would be pouring. Speaking of those beers, in addition to the Blind Bat Stout we also opened a can of the limited release 3Beans by Sixpoint Brewery which was a collaborative effort between Sixpoint, Stumptown Coffee Roasters & Mast Brothers Chocolate. We wanted to see how these beers from, “the Dark Side“, would taste with our two cheeses. keep reading...
