So, remember when I blogged on a regular basis?
Nah, me neither.
Thanks for all the birthday wishes! In addition to my birthday, it was also my husband’s! His comes 9 days before mine. To celebrate our birthdays, we had a super romantic dinner.
And by super romantic I mean beer dinner!
There are lots of brewmaster dinners around town. Usually they’re expensive and involve fancy food.
We’re cheap. And decidedly not fancy. So we never go. But, this month there was one at a BBQ spot.
Beer and ribs?
My husband died and went to heaven.
The dinner was at Podnah’s Pit in NE Portland, with beer from the always amazing Double Mountain.
Lots of beers to choose from
and it was all you can drink. For real.
There were house cured meats and pickles and things to start
Followed up with a wedge salad
This was delicious. Like, ridiculously good. It had blue cheese dressing. I hate blue cheese, and I still cleaned by plate. That good.
Then… the main attraction
So many sides
Which were delicious (the beans? Amaaaaazing) but did get in the way of the most important thing
Ribs, brisket, chicken, smoked prime rib, and hot links.
I died. Meat heaven. The brisket was possibly the best thing ever.
We left with bellies full of beer and beef, plus a doggy bag. Happy Birthday to us!
