Belgium Ale Drunken Onions will add insane flavor to your favorite grill recipe. Pair with a Gulden Draak Belgium Ale for a bold, boozy meal.
Belgium Ale Drunken Onions
To say that I am proud of my husband would be an understatement. After months of debate, job searching and emotional/mental/financial struggle Paul has decided to go into business for himself! Years ago he was in construction and loves working with his hands, creating a finished product he can be proud of.
There are still hurdles to overcome but we are making things happen! To celebrate him joining the 1099 club I grabbed some Gulden Draak Belgium Ale and whipped up a manly meal of steaks topped with Belgium Ale Drunken Onions.
Now my husband is a beer guy and loves all types; but a bold, aggressively smooth ale like Gulden Draak is right up his alley. This dark brown triple ale, more than 300 years in the making, was created for those who are passionate about beer.
We have been to many different tastings since I started the blog and learn something new each time. Gulden Draak uses a fusion of traditional brewing techniques with state-of-the-art brewing technologies to create an authentic, award-winning brew.
In fact Gulden Draak was awarded the best-tasting beer in the world in 1998 by the American Tasting Institute (now ChefsBest).
I love that Gulden Draak is fermented twice, the second time with a Bordeaux yeast because mere beer yeast isn’t able to handle the level of malt used. Bordeaux is one of my favorite wines and the yeast gives this ale an easy drinking finish for such a strong brew.
Who could resist a concoction that has been brewed since the 1700s and is steeped in legacy and tradition. I even used the Gulden Draak 9000 Quadruple in these Belgium Ale Drunken Onions.
It has notes of banana peel, sour dough and pear but is lighter and sweeter than most quads. Pair Gulden Draak 9000 with hearty dishes like vegetable soups and barbecue.
