If there’s one thing I know, it’s comfort food. I grew up on it. My mom always made the best shit. One of my favorites, though we didn’t get it often, was sausage, gravy and biscuits.
When brainstorming recipes for DrinkingCraft.com, I like to play to my strengths and try to enhance the already awesome stuff with awesome beer to make it even awesomer.
That’s what I did with this guy. I made sausage gravy and biscuits, which is normally amaze-balls, and added beer. For this particular dish, I used Lagunitas beers. I chose their Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’, a lovely, light and hoppy wheat beer in the biscuits and then a more hop-forward IPA, Hop Stoopid, for the gravy. Using the stronger hop flavors in the gravy ensures that the beer is actually tasted rather than just being a hidden ingredient. Otherwise, what’s the point?
Dig in guys!
