This is how the burger is advertised at Calapooia Brewing - in case you ever make it to Albany, Oregon.
This is my "little brother" Ben. He looks like my older brother John, but is younger than me. We went to school together and traveled to Mexico and then worked at the same place in Albany, OR. He is basically my brother. He is also a one of Calapooia's Chili Beer fanatics. This is a true chili beer made with fresh Anaheim, Serrano and Jalapeno peppers. It's bold after just one sip. You wouldn't think you'd find this in rural Oregon, right?
Of course I had to try one of their Cow-Beer-Burgers. The salad had bun croutons on it, surprise.
The "brew beef' burger aka cows fattened on spent brewery grain was not mind blowing. It was not ultra greasy and flavorful. It tasted like a hamburger my Significant (m)Other would make back in the 90s using 99% fat free beef my father would buy. Clearly, I baptized it in in ketchup. I don't know what the French were thinking. I gobbled this burger up sans any sort of indigestions or American obese feelings. It was a nice meal, but not a mind blowing hamburger. This was the last hamburger I've eaten and it's been two months. I had to try this burger to complete the cycle and here it is. Satisfying if you are hungry, but not going to knock your tube socks off. No matter what, I love Calapooia Brewing and I will go there any time I possibly can. Their beers are bold and rural Oregon is awesome.
