Welcome to Thirsty Thursday & Hungry Hearts, an original weekly meme hosted by Lexxie at (un)Conventional Bookviews. She realized that many of the books she read (must have been cozies!) had food or drinks in them and thought it would be interesting and fun to share some food and/or drink quotes.
There are a few rules with this meme: Just share the food or drink quote, and note whether or not it’d be something you’d be interested in yourself. Share the title of the book and the character who introduced the delicacy! Easy! You are welcome to use her logo or create your own but please link back to her blog and link your post to hers using her handy little weekly linky.
This week I am highlighting a quote from cozy mystery The Pint of No Return by Ellie Alexander. It’s Oktoberfest in Leavenworth WA and who doesn’t love the location, the music, the German food (the desserts!), and all the special craft beers! (Protagonist Sloan is tasting a beer from another brewery…I don’t drink beer, but after reading some of this–sounded like specialty wines–I was ready to try it again!)
[regarding an Apple Weizen] “I acquiesced and tasted Hans’s offering. The apple beer was slightly tart, with a sweet finish. It shared similar notes with our Cherry Weizen, but I could tell the brewing team at Dere Keller had used a different proportion of wheat and malt.
“This is great,” I said to Hans. “Did they ferment this in the freezer?”
WOW! This book really gets into it! Do you enjoy Octoberfests? Attend any locally or travel? The Cascade Mountains of Washington are gorgeous this time of year. It’s a feast for the eyes…and Leavenworth the palate. ©2018 V Williams
