Eighty-Eight Beer Advent Calendar – Day Ten

Day 20 tortilla soup!

Today is a very special night. This blogmas post is being written in real time. Like, I’m still drinking the Day 10 beer as I write it. It is incredibly cold out in Calgary – like this insane frigid air from Siberia, aka the coldest air on earth, has swept in. I was lucky enough to work from home today and, despite a dream of going to barre at 5:15 tonight, I am officially hibernating. 

Tonight is a night for soup, Hallmark movies, and the Day 10 Beer.

The Day Ten clue read “Just in case you’re all alone.” And boy, oh boy, was I able to guess which beer it was!!

Tiffany (Rose Saison)

Finally! The time had come that I could enjoy my very favourite Calgary beer – the Tiffany rose saison. I will admit, I bought it once and somebody told me it was a limited edition – y’all know I love an exclusive thing. But it’s two years later and this beer is still here for me to love…

Yes, it is a pink beer. Yes, it has a 24 IBU. But it also has a 8% ABV and it packs a real kick! Unlike the other sweet beers I’ve enjoyed over the past month, this beer is dry yet fruity. If you like a real rose (not a pink zinfandel), this is the beer for you. It is such a great entry into craft beer. It’s just also super dangerous, haha.

Anyway, I made a delicious tortilla soup with real peppers in adobo sauce (which added a great smokiness) and it did not pair at all, but I loved it and I am so happy on this cold night.
