Beer and food pairing chart created by Florida auto dealer

Craft beer has become such a huge part of the American conscience that it is appearing in places that are completely unexpected. Take the example of Merrit Island, Fla. Nissan dealership Mike Erdman Nissan. To appeal to craft beer lovers and help neophytes avoid craft beer and food matching faux pas, the dealership has created an infographic that outlines pairing basics.

“Beer is great,” said dealership owner Mike Erdman. ” Beer with matching food, even better.”

According to dealership representative Krista Meiers, the dealership wants to reach out to the digital community with fun facts and interesting tidbits.

“Our goal,” Meiers said. “Is to help the people in our community with more than just finding the perfect car.”

With the holiday entertaining season upon us, the dealership thought a helpful guide to beer and food pairing was a perfect fit.

“This time of year many people are interested in splurging and trying different foods,” Meiers explained. “Mike Erdman Nissan wants to help make your Holidays special, not only with cars, but also with food and beer pairings!”

Gnome Week Continues with Two Events Friday Night

Gnome week rolls on in Jacksonville with a couple of great events Friday night. As you may recall from the previous Gnome Week article, this week is a celebration of a village of Gnomes discovering a spring that produces magical waters in Belgium. Enterprising spirits that they are, the Gnomes decided to brew beer with the magical water and what resulted were particularly tasty brews. After centuries of keeping the beer and the recipe to themselves, the Gnomes decided to give the formula to the founders of Brassiere d’Achouffe (literally Brewery of Gnomes) in Belgium. Now, 6,666 years since the discovery of the spring and Gnome-style brewing began, we celebrate Gnome week by partaking of the beers and, in the case of at least one event, pairing them with great food.

The first event takes place at Total Wine and More at the St. John’s Town Center where you can taste several beers from Brassiere d’Achouffe. Stop by Friday, June, 8 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. and enjoy samples of these enchanted brews with Marc Wisdom, Jacksonville Craft Beer Examiner, Springfield Brew Crew blogger, and I Know Jax’s The Beer Guy. Distributor representative Carolyn Graham will also be there to answer questions and hand out cookies (think elves here – what do you want there are no Gnome cookies).

The second event takes place both Friday and Saturday, June 8 and 9 at Pele’s Wood Fire. The Riverside eatery has dubbed the two-night event as “Gnome Gnights” and Chef Micah Windham has prepared a three course meal that is inspired by and paired with the Gnome’s brews. The menu for the event is:

First course

Bouquet Flower Salad, with La Chouffe Vinaigrette

Second course

Tomato and Rabbit Cappeletti Pasta with Garden Vegetable Ragu

Third course

Warm chocolate cake with La Chouffe Gelato

The special dinner is available for $30 and is sure to be a hit.

In addition to the special dinner, Pele’s is offering La Chouffe and Houblon Chouffe on tap.
