Whole Foods in La Jolla now offers Love Local Brews Nights on select weekends. We attended a few weeks ago for a preview of the offerings. If you’re doing your grocery shopping on a weekend and you see the beer night going on – stop on in for a bite and a brew.
We tried the buffalo meatballs and the beer bread with cheese fondue sauce for appetizers. The meatballs were really good but that pretzel bread was even better. The sauce is made with white snaked beer and is oh so delicious!
For dinner I had the shrimp with spinach and butternut squash. I really enjoyed the grilled shrimp paired with the salty sweet of the spinach and butternut squash salad. It seems like such an easy salad to make but I have never tried it at home. I am going to have to give it a try. The flavors just went so well together.
Mark tried the steak with brussels and mash potatoes. I loved the side dishes but I wasn’t too big on the steak. I think it was the stout sauce that I wasn’t big on.
We brought our kiddo along with us and she loved the pretzel cheese bread and meatballs.
