out of Michigan with roasted barley topped with Irish bangers and a mushroom medley in a shallot and white wine sauce. Our obligatory “second-course wings” were tossed in a mango plum habanero sauce and served with the tropical Founders Azacca IPA (7.0% ABV), also out of Michigan because apparently no beer comes from Idaho! Our third course was a new twist on an old favorite – the Irish boxty. It was a sweet potato (thanks Idaho!) pancake with Irish whiskey-caramelized onions, Irish sage cheddar béchamel and stewed beef topped with frizzled sage, with the incredibly balanced Kona Castaway IPA (6.0% ABV) out of Hawaii to wash it all down. For dessert and in honor of the Mississippi primary, we tried “Mississippi Mud Black & Tan Beer” (5.0% ABV) out of Utica, New York. In true democratic fashion, the “Poet” from New Holland was voted our winner! Look for it on tap this month! And just in time for the start of baseball season, it was decided that our April Senate will feature beers from the origins of the four teams in the 2015 ALCS/NLCS Championship Series! Expect cool brews out of New York, Missouri, California and Toronto! See you April 12th at 7pm!
