Seared Brussel Sprouts with Bacon

Seared Brussel Sprouts with Bacon | @Teavolve | B.LEE iMAGERY

Delicious dish at Teavolve in Baltimore, MD.  Nice green color, not overdone, just enough bacon, seared to perfection.  Once I laid eyes on these veggies I knew it was going to be good–and it was.


Whiskey Flight

We got to taste 3 kinds of single malt whiskey: not so old, kinda old, and really old.  The longer the spirit sits in the barrel, the more oaky and woodsy aromas are embellished in its flavors.  I think the oldest was 14 years in the cask and I could hardly finish this 1.5 ounce elixir.  I really love whiskey as a sipping drink, but for my taste buds at 26 years old, I will go with the 8 year old scotch and a smooth cigar while talking with friends on politics, philosophy, and the meaning of time.  Cheers to good health.


Fuller body lager with a nice amount of hop with earthy tone. Lingering notes of the lightly toasted malt. Smooth and easy to drink if you’re really into ales when drinking from the can. This, when poured and allowed to breathe, softens it’s drink and the bitterness becomes subtle and pleasant. It pours a rich gold color and at 4.7% it’ll get you well.

I found it at The Perfect Pour in Elkridge, MD, check it out while in stock.


Eurotrash Pilz by Southern Teir Brewing Company

This beer has two kinds of malts and two kinds of hops.  I must say it has a great flavor, crisp on the tounge, and smooth going down.  I love the golden yellow color it has in the glass and the light carbonation makes it easy to drink and doesn’t make you have that full-in-the-belly feeling.  Clean finish with a hint of apple in the aftertaste.

What really drew me to this beer was its label.  Fun colors and an interesting name.  Pilseners have taken a place on my palate because of their clean and crisp qualities and have become a more common choice of mine.

Here are the specs:

  • Style: Amer. Pilsener
  • Alcohol % (ABV): 5.2%
  • Bitterness (IBU): 25
  • Beer Color (SRM): 5

And of course I had to take a picture of this beautiful brew:
