Coney Island Brewing Company is one of my new favorite beer brands to drink this summer. Having tasted it last week paired with a juicy, mouthwatering Cheeseburger and hand cut fries at Brinkley’s NYC.
Also paired was a death by flour-less chocolate cake, which was decadent, rich, and out of this world yum, paired with a 1906 Amber Ale (Sorry for jumping to dessert before walking you through my favorite brew and pairing).The Mermaid Pilsner Beer with the Brinkley’s Burger was great for a warm summer day. This beer is hoppy and refreshing with just the right amount of body; perfect as a burger beer.
Beer: Overpass IPA
Pairings: Brinkley’s Burger, Bacon, BBQ and Grilled Meats/ Veggies.
Ok back to dessert, because that pairing was a sweet one. This Flourless Chocolate Cake can certainly be shared as it’s very rich. When paired with the Amber Ale it’s delicious and the ale compliments the chocolate… then again beer and chocolate get along very well.
I loved Brinkley’s and now I love Coney Island Brewing Company beer… make both a part of your summer!
