What happens when a preppy girl buys a farm? She learns how to care for her family, two goats, too many chickens and the latest addition of some bees. All this while still trying to remain the preppy girl she's always been.
I hope you enjoy my creations, recipes and photos of living on the farm.
Summertime is the time to do a little exploring. My husband and I had opportunity to have lunch at Devil's Backbone in Roseland, VA. This is a brewpub in the finest sense of the word. They have an expansive menu, and everything we tried was delicious. The beer cheese spread, made with their Vienna Lager, was superb. And their summer beer selections are tasty and adventurous.
I was surprised to find out that I really enjoyed their BERLINER METRO WEISS
German -style Sour Ale. Gold Medal 2012 Great American Beer Festival German-style Sour Ale Lactobacilli were added to this brew to provide a tart & snappy sourness. Straw in color and light bodied. Berliner Weiss is often served with a shot of syrup to sweeten it; traditionally woodruff or raspberry. 3.8 abv, 21IBUs
I ordered it with blackberry syrup. And then opted for a growler to take home.
If you are headed through Nelson County, make Devil's Backbone a stop on your travels. Here is a link to their website so you can peruse their menu of food and beer.
