We get pretty excited for springtime at Great Lakes Brewing Company. After all, with springtime comes the holiest of community gatherings: the barbecue.
Whether it's a small front porch gathering or a total backyard blowout, you can usually expect two things at any self respecting cookout: food and beer. If you're lucky, someone comes through with a few communal bottles or kegs of GLBC beer. And if you're really lucky, they bring along a perfectly paired appetizer to graze as you sip your way through a chilled GLBC bottle.
If you're thinking to yourself, "I want to be the hero of my spring party. I want to be the bearer of good brews and tasty snacks", you're in the right place. We have the solution for your springtime potluck needs.
Our Recipe Spotlight this month features our classic spring seasonal, Holy Moses White Ale, our handcrafted white ale with spices and chammomile. The tangy, fruity notes of this hazy wheat beer make it a perfect warm-weather session beer. It's refreshing, clean, and aromatic. A definite lawn chair-sipper. And what goes better with a sunny seated respite than a Holy Moses White Ale and a bowl of colorful, freshly made salsa? That's right--nothing.
Holy Moses Cucumber Lime Salsa
Dice vegetables and drain of any excess liquids. Combine all ingredients, excluding olive oil. Refrigerate for 2 hours. Add olive oil before serving. Great for a piece of fresh grilled fish, or simply served with tortilla chips.
Holy Moses White Ale is coming soon in 6-packs, 12-packs, and on draft at bars and retailers located in our distribution markets. Visit our onsite or online gift shops for Holy Moses White Ale merchandise including posters, glassware, and magnets. And don't forget to pick up a GLBC apron for your next barbecue. Cheers!
