Frederick, MD (PRWEB) May 1, 2010
Using fresh and locally grown ingredients is the philosophy for both the food and the specialty drinks at Firestone’s Culinary Tavern at 105 N. Market St. in Frederick, Maryland’s renowned historic district. Now Firestone’s has taken its “buy local” commitment a step further: all of their beer drafts will be from breweries located within a day’s drive!
““Firestone’s is known for delivering fine, well-crafted food in a lively tavern atmosphere; customers also rely on us for innovative cocktails and interesting brews,” said Chris Tereyla, Firestone’s general manager.
“This region is rich with exceptional breweries,” added Tereyla. Some of Firestone’s new spring/summer brews include:
- Stoudt’s is a German-style gold helles medium-bodied lager from the Adamstown, Pennsylvania Stoudt’s Brewing Company.
- Lancaster Amish Four Grain Ale is produced by the Lancaster, PA Lancaster Brewing Company. This is a hoppy brew that matches the tastes of those who like IPA and pale ales.
- Troegenator Double Bock is a dark, strong lager with a rich, warming feeling and subtle spicy flavors. Interesting tidbit: The Double Bock style dates back a century or so ago. During periods of fasting without solid foods, the Monastic brewers relied on the double bock; a stronger, richer beer to fulfill their basic nutritional needs. Known as "liquid bread," a double bock has a strong malt aroma and chewy rich body.
- Woody Creek White Belgian Wit is Flying Dog’s tribute to the town they consider to be "Gonzo Ground Zero". Woody Creek White is a traditional Belgian-style Wit Beer, brewed with unique ingredients like orange peel and coriander. The result is a refreshing and slightly citrus flavor that’s perfect for the "Dog Days of Summer".
Cool Cocktails for Hot Summer Nights
Firestone’s is also known for its innovative cocktails. New this spring is the Cantaloupe Margarita, made with Cantaloupe puree, tequila, triple sec and Firestone’s homemade Myer Lemon Sour mix. The ingredients are shaken together and poured over ice for pure enjoyment.
Mojitos, a long-time favorite, have returned to Firestone’s menu this spring. Firestone’s Mojito is made by muddling fresh mint in a highball glass, adding ice, Mount Gay rum, simple syrup and fresh lime juice. It’s then shaken, topped with club soda and garnished with fresh mint and a lime wedge. “It’s the perfect refreshment on a hot summer’s day or evening,” added Tereyla.
“Many of our customers eat at the bar, and they enjoy the innovative way we approach both our food and our libations,” said owner Kim Firestone.
