The Clipper City Pale Ale is the newest addition in their beer lineup and was the winner of the All Maryland Homebrew Pale Ale Competition in the fall of 2001. After one sip, you’ll know why. This pale ale pours a perfect cooper color with a firm, frothy, and tall head. Hugh uses both American and English hops to brew this pale, which gives it a spicy and sweet, yet notably English, hoppy aroma. The flavor is all American though, look for an aggressive bitter hop profile that lasts through to the finish. Match this one up with your favorite light pasta dish, chicken, or cheeses.
Recipe Name

Oxford Raspberry Wheat Chicken

12 oz. Oxford Raspberry Wheat
1 Vidalia onion, peeled and minced
Juice of one lime and grated zest of one lime
2 chicken breasts, split into four pieces
Salt and black pepper to taste
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves garlic minced
2 teaspoons fresh rosemary, stemmed and minced
2 tablespoons minced parsley

Mix 8 oz. raspberry wheat beer, onion, lime juice, and lime zest in a glass baking dish deep enough to cover chicken. Season the chicken with salt and pepper then add to the baking dish. Marinate for 2-3 hours. Remove chicken from marinade and discard marinade. Place 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large nonstick skillet, and brown chicken, skin side down.

Cook, uncovered, for 5 to 6 minutes, turning chicken once. Add garlic and rosemary. Stir in remaining raspberry wheat beer, cover and braise on low heat for 15 minutes. Turn chicken and simmer uncovered, so pan juices reduce. When pan juices reach the thickness of a syrup, chicken should be cooked through to 160F. Serve with steamed rice and a sprinkling of parsley.


Hey Murl,

I got a real Brian-bender for ya! Is it a coincidence that there are 24 beers in a case and 24 hours in a day? I’m not saying nothing I’m just saying Cause when I’ve got myself 24 beers, they pretty much ain 't making it to the next day if you get my meaning!

Heeeeeey Fred!

When I first read your letter, I was hoping that your name would be Paul and that the smatter of random thoughts that followed was perhaps a part of your deeply warped sense of humor. But sadly, Fred, it is not and your brain-bender is not offering too much of a burden to my apparently advanced canine gray matter! You see, you’ve clearly demonstrated that it is in fact, no coincidence at all and the boyz in packaging at your favorite brewery did their homework well before rolling out the 24 bottle case of brew! They knew you 'd do the math and push the envelope just for the sheer braggin rights of saying you made it through the 24 hour Laverne and Shirley marathon without having to make a second trip to your local 7-11. We salute you Fred. For your astute powers of observation. For your dedication to the better good of beer consumption. And for providing some great material for my column!

Woof!

Murl.
