Humble origins of a holiday ale


If you find yourself on say, a short, dark, and damp day in February of 2009, popping the cork on a bottle of our holiday ale for a little winter's warming, try to think back to that day at the end of May when the sun never seemed to go down, and the coriander blossoms opened up on the portion of cilantro in our herb pot that we allowed to bolt. It has to start somewhere, right?

I was just commenting to a friend on how beautiful the flavor of cilantro blossoms are. I've always been a fan of green coriander seeds. But recently just totally blind sided when I tasted some cilantro flowers. Amazing! There's a spicy thing there that I really didn't expect. Plus an amazing length of flavor. Damn.

And to celebrate this post, I finally broke open last year's holiday ale. Damn delicious it was!
