Carnival Time

Thanks to Sam of Nerd Heaven, the Ascension-themed Lutheran Carnival XXIV is up and running.

Summer ales: Moose Drool's Summer Honey versus Schell's Zommerfest

After a long absence, I finally have a post for the Purpose Driven Drinking blog. I recently tried two beers labeled as "summer" ales. The first was New Ulm's Schell Brewery's Zommerfest and the second was Moose Drool's Summer Honey.

I had my husband also compare the two beers. Both are excellent summer brews, being light in taste and appearance. The Zommerfest is far less sweet than the Summer Honey, not surprisingly. Summer Honey is sweet and tastes best on its own and the Zommerfest begs to be enjoyed with salty or spicy foods, such as chips, salsa or pizza. The Summer Honey also has the flavor of some sweet spices. Zommerfest has a sharpness to its taste.

Recommendation: Moose Drool's Summer Honey is my favorite and the Schell's Zommerfest is my husband's favorite. We recommend them both!

Not By Beer Alone

Since most of us like to eat a little between our pints, jiggers, and pitchers, I thought that PDD readers might be interested in reading a little bit about what Scripture says concerning our diets. I just posted Food For Thought: Veggies, Meat, and Genesis 1, looking at the changes that God has allowed us since mankind's fall in the Garden.

I still can't figure out what wine goes with bok choy.

Attention: German Beer Experts!

What does 'kolsch' mean? The context is 'German Style Kolsch Bier'. Thank you.
