Did you know that there was an American Beer Day? I mean of course there would be, if there is a national lemon juice day (for real) or a national eat outside day, then why shouldn’t we celebration something as American as beer! Although truth be told, beer isn’t very American, it’s actually quite European and for a long time Americans did horrible things to the beer scene but thank goodness for the explosion of the craft beer scene.
However, I will get off my soapbox and discuss my real purpose today. Sunday is American Beer Day and Coleen of The Redhead Baker, is celebrating this awesome holiday with a week long ode to American Beer. Coleen is clearly a women after my own heart. 🙂
Since it’s pumpkin season, it only made sense to me to use my favorite Pumpkin Ale – Brooklyn Brewery’s Post Road. Brooklyn gets the balance of ale and pumpkin just right in this beer, it isn’t overly pumpkiny or spicy but has just a enough added to know you are drinking a Pumpkin ale. As for these pies, it was my attempt to recreate savory pies from a favorite joint at home – Dub Pies. They make savory New Zealand pies that are to die for.
To find out how I created my version of these savory pies, head over to Coleen’s site for the recipe!
Seriously, I’m in love! Pinned.
oh my god these are seriously the bestest thing I’ve ever seen! I have got to try these!!
I just bought my first 6pack of Post Road! And it is by far my favorite pumpkin ale also. So good!
You are just entering the world of Post Road? Joanne! What took so long? 🙂
Yes to everything about these! Heading over to Coleen’s to read your post, Susan.
