The Bruery’s Girl Grey

I am in Rocky Hill, NJ, drinking Girl Grey by The Bruery. The Bruery is a Micro Brewery in Placentia, CA. Girl Grey beer style is Belgian Strong Golden Ale, with an ABV of 8.5% and IBU of 0. I gave Girl Grey a 3.75 on Untappd’s 5 point rating system.

My kids cooked me up a “modified” full English breakfast. What is a full breakfast?

A full breakfast is a breakfast meal that typically includes bacon, sausages, eggs and a beverage such as coffee or tea. It comes in different regional variants and is referred to by different names depending on the area; however, it is colloquially known as a “fry up” in all areas. It is usually referred to as a full English breakfast in England (often shortened to “full English”), and therefore, as a “full Irish”, “full Scottish”, “full Welsh”, “full Cornish”, and the “Ulster fry” in the Republic of Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Cornwall, and Northern Ireland, respectively. It is especially popular in Britain and Ireland to such an extent that many cafés and pubs offer the meal at any time of day as an “all-day breakfast”. It is also popular in other English-speaking countries, particularly countries that were a part of the British Empire. On its origin, Country Life magazine states, “The idea of the English breakfast as a national dish goes right back to the 13th century and the country houses of the gentry. In the old Anglo-Saxon tradition of hospitality, households would provide hearty breakfasts for visiting friends, relatives and neighbours.”Wikipedia

My kids cooked Heinz baked beans, fried polish blood sausage, breakfast sausage, baked tomato, whole grain toast, sauteed baby Bella mushrooms, fried egg, and thick cut bacon. Whole grain toast instead of white bread toast. And instead of Earl Grey Tea, I’m washing it down with this “Girl Grey” IPA.

Hoppy Father’s Day to all the Untappd Dad’s.

Brewer’s notes

Top chef Brooke Williamson is a leader in redefining flavors and roles in the culinary world. We teamed with her to extend those contributions to the beer world with Girl Grey. This beer features the cool character of a Belgian-style ale, with sweet ribbons of almond flavors balanced by the piquant qualities of Earl Grey tea. It’s a creation for a new generation of beer lovers. Cheers!
