Sausage Trio: (from left to right) Rabbit, Duck & Rosemary and Elk & Boysenberry
Between the forecast of lent striking and me feeling sorry for my iron deficient-anemic self, I kinda went on a hamburger binge. My self proclaimed eating a hamburger every 2.5 years days are over. Cuz, well, it's only been since October since I last had a burger.
A whopping cinco months.
A few days after noshing an excellent burger at Grüner, I continued my animal-flesh fueling at Burnside Brewing, formally Alchemy Brewing Co., whilst urban hiking in lower Southeast Portland.
Beers came first: the Burnside IPA is powerfully bitter while the Oatmeal Pale Ale is distinctively smooth. My friend, Gerard, and I ordered a round of house-made exotic sausages as shown and described above - all delicious with the most unexotic wiener being the rabbit which tasted like chicken thighs. The Burnside Burger, seared in duck fat, adorned with grilled onions on a hop studded bun was also necessary. My last carnage before lent, and really the perfect way to go
You can see why. Good bye meat, see you in 46 days!
