Article by Barin von Foregger, Grillax.com When creating unique dishes in Grillax Nation, it’s all about a really good marinade … and we think you’ll love our dark beer marinade. With seafood, you want to go light. With beef, you want to go heavy. With chicken … the sky’s the limit! [Abita Turbodog] Abita Turbodog is perfect for a dark beer marinade. You will generally see the usual suspects when putting together your own marinade — salt, pepper, vinegar, etc. If you are looking to add a unique twist to your next marinade, pour in your favorite ale. But save some for the glass, too. We suggest you give Abita Turbodog a try. It’s a dark brown ale brewed with pale, caramel, and chocolate malts and Willamette hops. This combination gives Turbodog a rich body, deep color and a sweet chocolate, toffee-like flavor. The Beer Marinade 1/2 cup dark beer (We like Abita Turbodog) 1 cup apple cider vinegar 1 Tbsp light olive oil 1 Tbsp Kosher salt 1 Tbsp white pepper 1 Tbsp garlic powder 1 tsp chili powder 1 red onion, diced Combine all ingredients and use as a marinade or grilling sauce.

Story by Nora McGunnigle for GoNOLA.com The Emeril Lagasse Foundation’s eighth annual Boudin, Bourbon & Beer is happening on November 9 in Champion Square, and founding sponsor Abita Beer will be providing the third “B” in BB&B as always, reminding us that a Louisiana-made beer is the best to pair with this unique, Louisiana food. There are almost as many beer styles at the event as there will be dishes (more than 70, which is the event’s largest number of chefs yet) and each dish has a perfect beer to complement it. Multiple bars and beer trailers will be dispensing Amber, Hop-On IPA, The Boot, Turbodog®, Andygator®, Purple Haze®, Wrought Iron IPA, 30° 90° Citra-dry hopped lager, Christmas Ale Seasonal, Grapefruit Honey Lager Harvest Seasonal, and Office Party spiced stout. There also will be the opportunity to have your beer AND your bourbon cocktail in one glass because two of the beers in Bourbon Street Series collection will be poured this year: Old Fashioned Pale Ale and Rye Pale Ale. Since the event also profiles bourbon, the bourbon-barrel aged beers are a nice tip of the hat to the overall theme of BB&B. To get into the spirit of pairing the beers with boudin,...
