What do you drink with barbecue when you are drinking?
Beer and barbecue, I think, just go together. The lighter the beer, in my opinion, the more meat you can eat. We’ve got Pabst Blue Ribbon on the menu because, to me, it’s a throwback beer. We’ve also got a great India pale ale. We’ve got Full Sail, so if you like the spicier sauce and the spice notes, that’s a great match. We’ve got some beautiful Zinfandels on the menu if you’re more of a wine person. The only reason I don’t like to drink wine when I’m eating barbecue is my hands get too dirty and the glass can slip out of your hand. And bourbon, there’s no way you can go wrong. It’s a great way to finish the meal because it’s got some of the smoky, sweet, and spice characteristics of barbecue.
What are some of your guilty pleasures?
I like my bourbon, don’t get me wrong, which is also another great reason why I’m working here. Not that I’m drinking at work, but it’s nice to be surrounded by all those beautiful bottles.
