May is finally here, which means summer is on the horizon. As your calendar begins to fill up with Memorial Day weekend plans and barbecues galore, don’t forget about American Craft Beer Week, beginning May 13th through the 19th.
We are getting the celebration started with three recipes highlighting some of our favorite Oregon beers. From recipe integrations to pairings, the combinations of Oregon hazelnuts and beer are endless. Cheers!
Breakside’s traditional German-style lager is light and crisp – perfect for a beer bread. If that hasn’t sold you, wait until you try the savory streusel topping made with cracked hazelnuts, butter and Parmesan cheese.
A brings a welcomed citrusy flavor to this cheddar soup made with Tillamook’s Sharp Yellow Cheddar Cheese. To top it off, throw on fresh garlic and chives, and roasted hazelnuts for a nice crunch.
The perfect snack for long summer nights, this Sweet and Spicy Hazelnut Snack Mix combines the sweet flavor of Glory Bee Honey with spiciness from Jacobsen Salt’s Habanero Salt. Don’t forget an ice cold can of Rogue Ales’ Honey Kolsch to wash it all down.
What are two things Oregon is known for? Beer and hazelnuts, of course. With over 280 craft breweries and 72,000 acres of hazelnuts, this pairing is destined to be together.
