Tacos and Brooklyn Lager

Kris: Drinking this lager takes me back to drinking it in some amazing bars in Brooklyn, New York. It is brewed to a pre-prohibition recipe. It has sweet, malty flavour with floral/grassy hop aroma’s and a subtle bitter finish. Perfect with some chicken tacos.

Caroline: Me and the Brooklyn Brewery go way back. Nothing like a spring day drinking some lager in the back yard.

 Chicken Tacos

Fry off 1/2 brown onion (thinly sliced).

Add 2 cloves of finely diced garlic, some ground cumin, ground coriander, black pepper, finely chopped coriander root and some sliced red capsicum.

Add sliced chicken breast and brown off.

Add a diced tomato

Season with salt and cracked pepper and squeeze over some lime juice

 To serve:

Make a simple guacamole with some mashed avocado, lemon juice, salt and pepper.

Make a salsa out of diced tomato, red onion and some fresh coriander

Also serve with some lettuce and grated cheese.

Kris : It is all about simple, fresh flavours, perfectly matched with the Brooklyn Lager.

 Caroline: Kris, it seems you’ve forgotten the MOST important ingredient! I cannot eat tacos without tabasco sauce! The shells were a bit stale, but hey, they were store bought. After the first taco I just ate the fillings by themselves, still delicious and fresh…one of these days we will think ahead on taco night and make our own tortillas. It was great to be drinking one of my favorite American beers with one of my favorite foods.
