The pints&pairings #beersuggestioneers talk to Chef Tim Kilcoyne about his angel shark ceviche pairing with Anacapa Brewing Company's American brown ale called Barking up the Right Tree. Jason Coudray, brewmaster from Anacapa Brewing Co., also joins us to talk about why he decided to use eucalyptus bark in his beer.
Jason Coudray, Anacapa Brewing Company brewmaster, and I explore the complex pairing of a Belgian Wit and a spicy Thai peanut sauce.
Jason Coudray, Anacapa Brewing Company brewmaster, and I explore the sweeter side of beer pairings in this pairing short. Jason explains why their Santa Rosa Red is a perfect pairing with their pulled pork sandwich.
Jason Coudray, Anacapa Brewing Company brewmaster, and I explore one of his favorite beer pairings. The avocado tuna rolls and the Pissy Pelican Pale Ale. Listen or watch to find out why this is such a delicious pairing.
I want to thank Jason Coudray for all of his time and patience. He has never once asked "When is that thing gonna get finished?". I would also like to thank Anacapa Brewing Company (ABC) for letting us disrupt their normal day to day operations and for treating us to all that great food and beer!
This episode is the condensed version of my visit to ABC. Each segment was 10 to 15 minutes long and those full length segments will be released as web extras in the coming weeks. Notification of the new releases will be made through Facebook and Twitter.
It has been well over a year since I started this crazy adventure (pints&pairings)but the original concept is starting to come together. Below you will find a teaser to the first episode which was recorded at Anacapa Brewing Company. The full episode will be released on August 16th, 2013. So for now, sit back and enjoy the next 18 seconds!-)
Theme music by Matt Cook.
It was like getting ready for the first day of school. I didn't sleep well, anxiety dreams of being chased and forgetting my locker combo plagued me for a couple of days beforehand. I was truly excited and I felt prepared but obviously the unknown was affecting me a little more than my conscious-self knew.
But once we got started everything started to smooth out and flow nicely. I will probably look a little stiff, to those of you who know me, but Joel (video producer) and Dalaney (show producer) were quite happy with my first on camera performance. We are all looking forward to the next few episodes when we hit our stride, so to speak.
Some montage video being recorded while Jason (brewmaster) does a little work. You will see some of these clips in the opening and closing credits. When Jason was done with his work we got right down to the beer and food pairing interview. I didn't have time to take anymore behind the scenes photos except the one below!
This was delicious! It is a wonton wrapped piece of ahi and avocado deep-fried with a teriyaki drizzle. I won't tell you what we paired with it, just yet. You will have to wait for the show!
A special thank you to Destiny and Jason at Anacapa Brewing Company for letting us come in and disrupt the lunch rush. We really appreciate your hospitality. It was a perfect place to shoot our pilot episode!
I would also like to thank Revolution Surf for supplying my wardrobe! I was rock'n an awesome O'Niel shirt but you will have to wait until the episode is released to see it.
