Feed The Resistance: National Beer Day!

Today is National Beer Day – so I went straight to a cookbook called “The American Craft Beer Cookbook” for a recipe that originated at  Gritty McDuff’s Brewpub in Portland, Maine.  The recipe is for Blackened Shrimp and Corn Chowder (follow the link to The American Craft Beer Cookbook – and then scroll down to the “Take a Look” section – the recipe is there).  The soup has a great, spicy flavor that paired perfectly with the “Lady Luck Dark Red Ale” that Dee brought in from Karben4!

My only suggestion is to do as the instructions say, and use good FRESH SHRIMP (the recipe says “preferably Maine-harvested”) – I used cheap frozen shrimp, and while it tasted good, the shrimp came out a bit rubbery!
