Focus on Beer

  • By 7016414854

Let's focus on beer. It's good to have focus and beer is a much more interesting subject than your neighbors kids. It's less divisive than anything in the current political arena, and it's more fun than helping with ANY kind of interior decorating. We can all agree, beer is worth our precious time.

Which brings us to the focus of today; UFO Huckleberry Hefeweizen.  I should hate this beer. I have never been a huge fan of the hefeweizen style in general, and I have definitely never been a big fan of fruit-adjunct beers. By all rights, this should be my beer equivalent of Sharknado IV starring The Situation from Jersey Shore: the original was bad enough but now you've added something completely horrifying to the mix so I should want to burn the whole thing down, but somehow I don't. It's weird.

The reason this beer works so well is that the huckleberry flavor isn't overwhelming. Far from it.  It's a barely there, very subtle sweetness on the back end of a relatively dry start. The nose is a pleasant mix of yeast and nice fruit-forward aroma, and at a relatively low 4.8% ABV, this is an easy summer crusher practically built for patio consumption. I never thought I would enjoy a beer with the word "berry" anywhere in the name, (thank you Leiny's Berry Weisse), but UFO Huckleberry Hefeweizen is clearly an exception. We have it on draft right now for a limited time. Come get some!

Today for Lunch at Luigi's, try our new Five-Star Lamb Burgers!

6 ounces of premium, locally raised, ground lamb from our friends at Five Star Lamb, char-grilled to perfection and served on a crusty, grilled ciabatta roll with homemade garlic mayo, fresh greens, sliced Roma tomato, sweet cucumber salad, and creamy, briny Wisconsin Feta.

There is no messing around with this one! We didn't stuff this with fillers to cover the flavor. We let the lamb shine through, and shine it does!

Today for Lunch at Luigi's, we have a wrap that is SO good, the picture doesn't do it justice. (Of course, maybe the picture would do it justice if stupid Samsung didn't automatically update my phone and change the camera completely so I have to relearn the dumb thing!!!)
Rant over.

We take whole roasted chicken- that's right, the whole thing, not just breast- and shred it by hand to make sure you are getting nothing but the best parts, toss that with our AMAZING homemade pesto, a little Greek Yogurt, fresh mozzarella, baby spinach, and Roma tomato, and voila, awesome wrap, baby.

Today for Lunch at Luigi's, it's a soup and salad combo perfect for a quick lunch on the go!

We take a small bread bowl, made fresh for us at Fannita's bakery, fill it with our homemade Chicken Pot Pie soup, and serve it alongside a fresh green salad, full of Tuscan greens, sun-dried tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, and fresh-grated Parmesan cheese. It's light, it's quick, and it's delicious.
