Audio Interview with Brewmaster Mark Ruedrich on Beer Obsessed

Thanks to BeerObsessed for posting his great interview with Brewmaster Mark Ruedrich! Here’s an excerpt from his blog post.

Thanks to Mark Ruedrich and North Coast Brewing Co. for taking the time to do the interview and for his hospitality in general.

We talk about why he came to Fort Bragg (mainly due to his love of Steinbeck and tidepools).  We talk distribution: how far and wide North Coast beers are (45 states and 7 countries). Also plenty of great info on his beers, how he formulated Old Rasputin, other beers, etc.  The last third of the interview is a tour on the production floor including: the brew system, fermentation tanks, bottling, and his cold storage area. Mark talks about future expansion and also a bit about his barrel program (yes, more good things to come in barrels).

Navigate over to BeerObsessed to hear the interview.

Everything's Big in Texas

North-Coast-Dinner-JazzNorth Coast Brewing at Coco BarNorth Coast Brewing has just completed a couple of high-profile, sellout beer dinners at some of the most-happening spots in Texas. Coco Bar in El Paso was the site of a great food/beer/music evening co-hosted by Audrey Kiefer, North Coast’s Texas Sales Manager, and Chef Julio. One of the favorite pairings of the evening was savory lamb sliders which were a great match for Red Seal Ale. Marty Olivas and his jazz group, Case Closed, provided some first-rate sounds including some Thelonious Monk tunes in tribute to, guess what, our Brother Thelonious Belgian Style Abbey Ale.

North Coast Beers with Chocolate CakeThat was followed by a memorable evening at Rudyard’s British Pub in Houston. Audrey Kiefer teamed with co-founder, Tom Allen to represent the brewery while Chef Joe Apa and his crew handled the food duties. The menu was a Texas tour-de-force with each dish incorporating a beer ingredient to match the accompanying ale. A smoked trout pate with Scrimshaw Pilsner started the meal followed by Venison sliders with Red Seal Ale and Texas wild boar cassoulet with Brother Thelonious. A chocolate flan made with Old Rasputin rounded out the dinner. It was a landmark event capped off by a round of standing applause from the well-fed and  thirst-slaked capacity crowd.

Lemon Pilsner Cake Recipe Featuring Scrimshaw

North Coast Brewing Scrimshaw PilsnerThanks to Jackie Dodd for sending us her recipe for Lemon Pilsner Cake using Scrimshaw. Jackie says:

“If you have ever had the opportunity to talk to a brewmaster, you have seen it. You’ve seen that look that lets you know that there is an art and a respect for what they do that goes far past what most Americans experience at their day jobs. The look that tells you that the paycheck isn’t the reason he does the job. The flavors, the journey, the solving of the problems that yield to an end result of a drinkable, shareable masterpiece. You’ve seen that look.

“It’s because of that look that I try to create recipes that respect the years of love and hard work that go into the process of making Craft Beer. I had the idea of making a lemon cake with pilsner, but the issue is always the hops. Hops are a hard ingredient to cook and bake with, given that they often reduce to a very bitter product. Scrimshaw Pilsner, while still a pilsner, has a low, and well balanced hop taste. It is also from one of my favorite breweries, North Coast, that produces an incredible variety of craft beer. And you can bet that if you are ever lucky enough to take a tour of the brewery, you will see that look I’m talking about, all over the place.”

See the recipe and full post at her blog, The Beeroness.
