YAH Brew and Desserts Pairing

YAH Brew and Desserts Pairing

Cupcake and Beer

A dessert pairing with a fresh beer, it feels like my Christmas present already arrived.  Ben and I decided a quick date night was in order.  As soon, as you walk in the door you feel like the 90s theme of YAH Brew was successfully switched over to a 90s theme Christmas Brewery. They completed the transition with a Gingerbread stout by YAH Brew and paired it with a Gingerbread cupcake from Desserts Etc.

The Gingerbread stout, Santa’s Bake, is described on Facebook as “a Gingerbread stout with Flavors or gingerbread, spices, vanilla and cream cheese frosting”. The Gingerbread Stout starts off with a light gingerbread flavor, the thickness of the stout comes in and then it feels like you dive into one last kick of gingerbread so you don’t forget it. 

Santa’s Bake comes in on Untapped with a 6% ABV and it has an overall rating of 4.08. 

The sweet cream cheese frosting, soft gingerbread cookie and soft gingerbread flavor cupcake are the perfect complement to this thick milk stout.  I knew right away Grandma SueAnn would love this stout.  I hope you remember me explaining we weren’t just pumpkin spice loving gals, we love all the seasonal flavors! I made sure to take a Crowler home to Grandma SueAnn. 

While at YAH Brew enjoying this paring with my Boo, we had to also have something a little savory.  We tried out the Nachos and added the smoked pork.  This was an incredibly good choice to balance out the sweetness from the stout and cupcake.  The beer cheese in the nachos or maybe it was the pico de gallo had just a touch of spice that was the perfect balance. 

Nachos and Imprint’s Dream Bars

We also split the Bourbon Barrel Aged 5ifth Anniversary Dream bars by Imprint Beer Co.  This pastry stout was like a dream.  It went along well with all the other tasty selections we were enjoying. 

Then, to finish off Ben ordered the Gushee: Creepy Crawler.  I thought all my food/drink aversions where over after my pregnancy.  But just the thought of this one makes me gag.  Seriously, as I am writing this my visceral reaction is to vomit.  It was greatly upsetting as I was still polishing off those nachos when the drink arrived.  I was never the type of girl to be like that.  Your girl knew how to take a shot down the hatch.

YAH Brew’s crowler.

We noticed the crowler label as I watched Ben finish off the Gushee; adoptable pets from the Humane Society.  Any business that supports a non profit will always have my business.  Not only do I get to bop my head to tunes that remind me of being a teenager, but I feel good when it helps supports my community.  YAH Brew might be one of our fav breweries, especially for a date night.

We are working on a massive project here at The Beer Thrillers. We are creating a map of all of the breweries across the United States. State by state we are adding maps of all of the different states with every brewery in each state. (We will eventually get to the US Territories, as well as the Canadian Provinces, and possibly more countries; as well as doing some fun maps like a map of all the breweries we’ve been to, and other fun maps.) You can find the brewery maps here:

We are also working on a project of creating printable and downloadable PDFs and resources to be able to check and keep track of all of the breweries you’ve been to. So stay tuned for that project once we are finished with the Brewery Maps of the US States.
