It’s also hockey season, which is my favorite time of year. I decided to live it up a bit while watching the game and have some snacks. Homemade French Onion Dip (recipe here) with chips and a brew was perfection.
The beer that I had with my snack was Stone’s Enjoy By 10-31-14. Double IPAs are a favorite of mine and Stone does the style well. The beer is fresh and so well balanced. Stone is known for being a little heavy handed with the hops but the Enjoy Bys are not aggressive. They are pleasantly bitter with a crispness that is clean rather than overwhelming.
This beer paired perfectly with the salty chips and the oniony dip. As I sipped and munched away on my snack, I watched as my team completely roasted the other team, walking away with an 8-3 win.
Then I watched some Gilmore Girls and headed off to bed.
Now that was a great night!
