Pride Pub:Your Grub and Grog Selections for Orlando City at Seattle Sounders

This week, Pride Pub heads west as Orlando City takes on the Seattle Sounders at CenturyLink Field next Sunday. That leaves plenty of time for you to gather the ingredients and bottles o' beer to maximize your viewing experience.

Austin Warren, The Mane Land

Welcome back to Pride Pub! I always appreciate these trips out west--those left-coasters have been doing the craft beer thing for a while. As always, we choose a craft beer from the state/city of our opponent and we pair it with a tasty recipe. Then, to keep things fair, we choose a Florida craft beer with great vittles to represent our Orlando City Lions!

This week, we're taking on the Seattle Sounders in a battle of teams that have some of the largest attendance numbers in MLS. It should be a great atmosphere, and we've picked some great beers to complement this match. Seeing as they are named the Sounders, I know you'll appreciate the Seattle beer we chose even more.

From Seattle, WA: Audible Ale, Red Hook Brewery

According to the brewery:

"Redhook has teamed up with Dan Patrick to brew the ultimate craft beer for watching sports: plenty of flavor and aroma, and crushable enough to make you want another - without making you sloppy by halftime. So, whether you're watching the Dan Patrick Show in your man-cave, or tailgating in a parking lot, it's time to fill your passion bucket with crushable craft. Listen to your thirst. It's Audible."

That's a fine commercial for Audible Ale; for more detailed impressions head over to our friends at Beer Advocate.

Pair with: Blackened Salmon

Dave's recommendations: For a side dish, go with Sweet Potato Fries and maybe top with Parmesan cheese. This particular recipe is for oven-baked fries, so we can continue the "healthy" vibe started by the salmon.

From Florida: Bimini Twist IPA, Three Daughter's Brewery

According to the brewery:

"Don't let this one get away. A slight hint of citrus from the hops makes this India Pale Ale as refreshing as a Bimini sea breeze. It's a catch worthy of a rollicking fish tale. Definitely a keeper. Unfiltered, copper colored IPA with intense citrus and floral hop aroma and a flavor that is balanced by sweet caramel malts with a clean hop bitter finish."

Pair with: Steak (or Chicken) Fajitas

Dave's recommendation: Dave's Homemade Salsa! Simple to make (though it will take an hour to finish with all the chopping) and very tasty--if I  say so myself.

Ingredients:

5-6 Medium Tomatoes (the type that are on the green vines)
1 each - Orange, Yellow, and Green peppers 
1 Large Onion (Yellow or white depending on your taste)
3 Jalapeño peppers (or more depending on taste)
1 Serrano pepper (or more depending on taste)
1/2 Small jar - Minced garlic
Cilantro (about 2/3 of the tube container)
Salt (3/4 tbsp)
Black Pepper (heaping tbsp)
Chips of your choosing

Instructions:

Take the seeds out of the tomatoes and the peppers. Dice the tomatoes and peppers. Add all ingredients together in a glass/ceramic container and refrigerate. It's best the next day, but still tasty right away.

That's all from the Pride Pub. Tip your bartender, drive safe, and Go City!
