So upon me returning to Columbia, Missouri this fall, I shared that I would be again eating at Flat Branch - and as always my faithful readers chimed in and made a few suggestions on what beer to drink.
Then as I sat at my hotel chatting with one of the locals, she suggested that I try Flat Branch's Green Chili Beer.
At first I was grossed out, who would drink beer that taste like Green Chilies? I don't even like spicy
Arriving at Flat Branch Pub, I was with the gang from Missouri Outdoors Communicators - they all agreed that the Green Chili Beer sounded crazy.
This time, I asked the waitress for her opinion, she happily offered me a sample of the Green Chili Beer ----- then I ordered another glass.
Green Chili Beer has a bit of a kick, it tasted a bit hot, and had an after kick of like drinking whiskey. I was sold, I loved the beer.
Only there is a catch - there is always a catch.
Be careful what you order to eat with your Green Chili Beer. I absolutely love Cajun food, so when I saw they had a Cajun pasta meal - I just knew I needed it. Half way through my meal, it clicked that my Green Chili Beer was not going to cool my mouth after my Cajun Pasta - NOT a good combo, but both delicious.
So Flat Branch Pub & Brewery you set me right, or the locals, my readers, and your waitress did. I am sold on the Green Chili Beer - now to find something to pair it with!
