Happy Thursday! I hope everyone is as pumped as I am that tomorrow is Friday. Woohoo! I thought the day would never come. Thank God. I didn’t think I was going to make it. So I’ve been waiting a couple of days to post this recipe in particular because I was just that obsessed with it. I wanted to wait for the perfect moment, and I think that because tomorrow is Friday, then that was more than reason enough. A couple of days ago I finally got to try out Stone Saison. It’s like summer in a bottle guys. Summer … in … a … bottle. It is so florally and citrusy and spectacularly delicious. It was the perfect cure for Sunday’s snow day blues. I thought that these grilled shrimp tacos were the perfect way to highlight this saison, and I wanted to share the recipe with you! Steps, steps, steps. As you will see, I am full of steps for this particular recipe. Don’t fret folks. It’s really not that difficult and is actually pretty quick to make too! Read ahead for the recipe for these delish tacos and why you should go out and buy Stone Saison ASAP!
Beer: Stone Brewing Company’s Stone Saison
Brewed By: Stone Brewing Company
Description: Are you ready for this? Stone Saison is 100% all Stone. Yup, that’s right. All … Stone. This farmhouse-style ale is infused with lemon zest, grains of paradise and Stone Farms-grown lemon thyme and lavender. It’s absolutely perfect for the spring and summer months, and although it gives you those traditional flavors you crave with a saison, it has unique characteristics that are all it’s own. It’s citrusy and just a tad florally, yet crisp and dry. It’s the perfect sipping beer while you are lounging by the pool … which is how I tend to enjoy it ;).Now let’s talk cooking and pairing. I really wanted to make this saison the star in these grilled shrimp tacos, so I decided to bathe the shrimp in a mixture of butter, Stone Saison and garlic. It was absolute perfection, and the perfect springtime dish. This ale is the perfect pairing for a light and refreshing dish as this, so make sure you pick up a 6-pack so you can cook with it AND pair with it! Although, I think this should just go without saying. ;)
