Char-grilled with lettuce, tomato, caramelized onions, gorgonzola cheese, and blue cheese dressing on our grilled flatbread
She really liked the way the beer's bourbon notes complemented the caramelized onions. She also appreciated how the Timberwolf's hop profile held its own against this sandwich - neither one covered up the other.
*Big enough to share!
I couldn't agree with him more.
I picked Midnight Howl Black Ale, a hybrid beer that is best described as an IPA mixed with a stout, as my first pairing. I liked how the beer's smokey flavors resonated with the char-grilled tri-tip. The hop profile and the sharp roasty notes of the beer also resonated with the gorgonzola and blue cheese dressing.
I found a nice surprise when I paired the Timberwolf Bourbon-Oaked Red Ale with this sandwich. The bourbon is quite subtle (well, more so than other bourbon beers) and when it was paired with the sandwich, the bourbon notes became more prominent. In a very pleasing way!
