We all love a good beer and good food but do you really know what food to pair your beer with?  We’ve decided to give you a little “beerology” and tell you in a three part blog about the beers we serve and what foods pair best with them!

It’s all about our draft beers today! draft beer

Blue Moon – Offering year round, seasonal and specialty beers, Blue Moon hit the market in 1995 and has been a popular beer choice among our customers.  The creator of Blue Moon, Keith Villa, studied brewing in Belgium and wanted to craft a beer that was similar to the Belgian wits he loved while in Belgium.  Blue Moon is best paired with grilled chicken, steak, burgers, and ribs.
