This Happened Last Night at The Partisan

Roast pig head on a bed of arugula and shredded pig ear, mashed potatoes, Brussel sprouts slaw, and these amazing little bread discs.

Paired with Cigar City/Great Lakes Wandering Pelican, Jolly Pumpkin Biere de Mars, and a Pino noir.

Still recovering today. We regret nothing.

Thanks again to Brauck and Stewart.

Giant Duff Beer Pong with Pitbull

Charm City Meadworks in DC

On the left, test batches of rosemary mead. On the right, the first appearance of the carbonated variety. The still checks in at 12%, carbonated at 7%.

It’s delicious and coming soon to the Baltimore/DC region.

Stay tuned.

Cold Beer by Jesse Stewart 

1. Newcastle Brown Ale - The Newcastle beer has been found to contain caramel coloring. Class 3 and 4 caramel coloring is made from ammonia, which is classified as a carcinogen. While alcohol is a carcinogen itself, drinking it in moderation may decrease your chances at developing cancer. However, more added carcinogens will have the opposite effect. “The one and only” beer with extra cancer causing qualities.
2. Budweiser - One of the most popular beers, or most advertised is Budweiser. Budweiser contains genetically modified (GMO) corn. In 2007, Greenpeace discovered experimental GMO rice in Anheuser-Busch (Budweiser) beer.
3. Corona Extra - I used to love Corona’s commercials. They were so peaceful and relaxing. That is until I found out that the beer contains GMO Corn Syrup and Propylene Glycol. Propylene Glycol is controversial, and is said to may be potentially harmful to your health.
4. Miller Lite - This is another very popular beer in America that contains GMOs. Miller Lite contains GMO corn and corn syrup. It’s “GMO time”.
5. Michelob Ultra - Less popular but still readily available Michelob beer, should be eliminated from your choices. This beer has been found to contain a genetically modified sweetener (GMO dextrose)
6. Guinness - Guinness is often praised for it’s smoothness.  However, several investigations proved that Guinness ingredients are quite disturbing. The beer contains isinglass, an ingredient which comes from fish bladder and high fructose corn syrup. High fructose corn syrup has been long banned from many stores and drinks.
Update: Good news! We’ve contacted Guinness and they have stated that they no longer use high fructose corn syrup in any of their beers.
7. Coors Light - Coors light is a drink that is very popular at bars and among college students.  Mostly because its cheap. The beer contains GMO corn syrup.
8. Pabst Blue Ribbon - Pabst Blue Ribbon contains GMO corn and GMO corn syrup.
