I am not going to Ohio to eat but it does sound like a few steps above skyline chili

...Die Hard...?

*clicks*


Yep.

That has nothing to do with Bernard and the Genie.

That's a really good sounding meal and at a reasonable price.  Last time I did a meal like that, it was $65 and really good.

Cost is non-refundable $85. Menu is subject to change.

Great.  I'm going to pay, and then upon arrival, find out they've swapped to "A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD" and the main course will have been swapped to Viktor Chagarin's gelatine kholodets and desert will be Yuri Komarov's kissel.

Viggo would like a word with you about your movie choice.

If it wasn't for the whole pandemic thing I'd probably be going to this, barrel aged Christmas ale sounds delightful.

For those who wish they could go, I'll try to help you out by criticizing the menu.

I mean 'spicy slaw' in the 4th course?   Is that supposed to be for 'the cowboy', or for Hans?  The proper German dish to go with the two pork dishes would be braised red cabbage.  And we have to assume German on that one, as a true cowboy would likely consider a sprig of parsley on his steak to be a 'salad'.

Is this a sign that they can't pair one of their beers with something sweet and sour?

Not great lakes in Milwaukee like I hoped.

Menu looks solid, beer looks ok.  Different strokes for different folks.  I'll try anything. Not driving for that however

I get it. Anything can be better.  Seeing as how neither of us has eaten this I'll go defense and say thay your judging a side as a last resort.  Sure, red cabbage would be proper, but they got the main on point.

/Picked red cabbage in fridge with jalapeno and shallots with clove and orange peel right now.

I would go for 5 courses with their Christmas ale.

That shiat is delicious.

It's actually one of the better breweries to come from Ohio. But the Christmas ale is something special. Otherwise me and the commodore made things happen. And I've done things on the Edmund.

The dirt wolf. Even though I'm tired of throwing back IPAs is almost as memorable as the Ruination.

But yeah the Christmas ale is a must.

The only food I remember from Rare Exports is gingerbread.

I was just trying to help people who might feel bad that they weren't going to be able to go.  Give them a reason to not drive cross country and possibly help the virus spread.

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to come up with criticisms of the other four courses. I tried.

Well, I mean, other than the beer.  I don't know how people are able to drink stuff with hops in it.  ('Acquired taste'?  I could see if it had major health benefits like it did it in the days when water was contaminated, but if it's just about getting drunk, there are so many better things to drink)

/actually likes to try unusual food pairings, as you never know what's going to work 'til you try it

Are you a super bitter taster by any chance? My wife is highly averse to hops like you, she's a super bitter taster. I get her sours, lambics, saisons, witts, and a few other styles with very low IBUs.

I don't know.  There are some foods that they say supertasters can't stand that I'm okay with. (Broccoli, grapefruit, cabbage, dark greens, although that's also partly how they're cooked), but others that I'm not a fan of (coffee, gin, beer).  I admit I wasn't a fan of broccoli growing up, but it's one of my go-to vegetables now, as are other things in the cabbage family.  The same with dark chocolate, although that might be more defensive, as I have milk issues, so it's often the only chocolate I can eat these days.

I've never done the PROP test, and supposedly supertasters tend to be skinny, and I'm only skinny if you compare me to someone who's morbidly obese.  (I'm your average American size, ie, borderline obese by BMI)

I also know I've had some foods that are pleasantly bitter-- marmalade, a bit of char on veggies, etc.

But there is something about hops that I just find disgusting, even in every beer that people insist isn't very hoppy. (Sours, gose, wheat beers, etc). I can drink some sours if I had to, but it's like trying to get a German to drink Jaggermeister or a Brit to drink root beer (their cough syrup flavors).  I'd much rather stick with cider (although some of those are now hopped), mead, mixed drinks, hell, even zima would be better than a beer.
