The Saturated Sauna

I love beans. What do I mean by that? I mean I love this dish that my mother used to make which is just beans simmering in a pool of water all day with some pig pieces. I guess it is a bean soup. I just called it beans. I still refer to it as just beans. Every time someone mentions beans, I picture these beans.

What makes these beans so good is the abundance of fat. This dish was usually cooked after a big Christmas ham dinner or any time leftover ham was around. The ham provides the right amount of salt and a little fat, but the extra addition ham hock or pork knuckle opens up your gluttonous fat chakras and takes it to another level.

Unfiltered Fish

Ballast Point’s Unfiltered Sculpin provides you with all the wonders that you’d expect from this beer after all these years. An IPA that serves as a reminder for my curiosity towards craft beer (let’s not debate if BP is still considered craft here). So why not invite the hops into our saturated sauna.

Forgotten Fat

Sculpin added its unique hops to the flavor thereby taking away from the fat. If I had to attempt to look at this objectively, I would say that the hops leveled out the greasiness that comes with the fat to provide a balance. But that isn’t me. I’m emotional. And I want my fat back. The addition to the Sculpin took away from the original Will you Be Mine recipe. I should probably give it its own name considering the change in flavor. Delicious! But nowhere near my childhood dish that I use as portal to the past.

    I am a developer, cooking fanatic, and craft beer lover. However, lacking in baking skills, I decided to try making beer bread. Baking Brew is dedicated to cooking and baking with one main ingredient in mind. Craft Beer!

    Unfiltered Sculpin

    Our Unfiltered Sculpin IPA packs extra hops into every sip, enhancing the classic Sculpin notes of fresh apricot, peach, mango and lemon with a slight haze and less bitterness.

    Freshness is key to every beer, but especially true for this extra-hopped IPA—store cold and drink soon. This limited release is now available at all locations and rolling out nationwide soon!
