First stop for #SceneBurgerWeek18 was @craftbrewed for their Reuburger. All the fixin’s of a Reuben (always a favorite of mine) on a burger. I knew I wanted a malt-heavy beer for the pairing, and @embracethefunk recommended the @huttonandsmithbrewing On-Sight, a Northern German Altbier. Think of a solid amber ale with a very drinkable body, just enough hop bitterness to balance a dominant malt character that makes a perfect compliment to rye bread, sauerkraut, and a juicy beef patty. Really solid burger and beer pairing.
Craft Brewed has another burger special for this week, not on the $5 menu, an Animal Style burger in ode to the In N Out classic. I sampled this as well, with @3fonteinen Zwet.be, a Brett porter. This is a fun burger, and those caramelized onions are to die for, but Animal Style is just not the same for me without the double double, fries and a shake. Zwet.be is a wild spin on a porter, with a lighter body and moderate Brett funk. This wouldn’t be a daily drinker, but was fun to try with an equally wild burger.
