In last week’s NY Times, Eric Asimov called the category of Belgian golden ales “truly glorious beer at the highest level.” He went on to praise our Leelanau Good Harbor Golden Ale as “tart, sour and beautifully funky with wild, vibrant citrus flavors and subtle sweetness.” Crafted in Dexter, Michigan, this delicious brew bested 9 out of 10 actual Belgian beers sampled by the tasting panel.
Good Harbor comes in a 750ml bottle – the same amount as a typical wine bottle and indeed this brew can have a place at the dinner table. The brewery recommends serving it with cassoulet, rack of lamb, roast poultry or even spicy curry dishes and spicy sausages. Steve the beer man recommends it with Tarentaise or a similar nutty cheese like Gruyere. Laura, one of our cheese whizzes, suggests an American washed-rind cheese like Oma, Grayson or Hooligan!
