Plant-Based Bratwurst with Spicy Turmeric Aioli, Coffee BBQ Jackfruit, and Coleslaw – $9.50

Admittedly, we were scared when we read “spicy turmeric aioli,” but this vegan brat was pretty tasty! The coffee barbeque jackfruit and coleslaw balance out that spicy turmeric aioli, and the brat itself was very tasty.

The dish as a whole worked well, and we were all impressed with this offering, given the combination of unique ingredients.

Artist Palette Jumbo Chocolate Chip Cookie – $5.50

This is a giant, chewy chocolate chip cookie. Don’t expect something hot and fresh, but it’s good enough for mom and dad to enjoy a bite to eat while the kids enjoy painting with the brush (and probably eating the cookie, too).

Playalinda Brewing Company Blue Raspberry Blonde, Titusville, FL (5.0% ABV) – $10.75

The beer is true to its name. You initially get a great burst of blue raspberry flavor, which quickly wears off. The fruit flavor is stronger than, say, Sea Dog Blueberry; it’s not subtle even on the fruit-flavored beer scale. For a few moments, you can taste that it is indeed beer. She is on the lighter side, as a blonde should be.

*NEW* 81Bay Brewing Co. Nairobi Coffee Dark Beer, Tampa, FL (6.0% ABV) – $10.75

From correspondence with 81Bay Brewing Co.: “Nairobi Coffee Porter has all the rich roasted and semi-sweet chocolate we love in this style of beer with subtle elements of stone fruit and berries that come from the coffee itself.”

*NEW* Central 28 Beer Company Brown Ale Wall Art, DeBary, FL (6.0% ABV) – $10.75

From correspondence with Central 28 Beer Company, Wall Art Brown Ale is “a rich, oatmeal brown ale brewed with Madagascar vanilla pods. Vanilla, caramel and toffee notes coupled with hints of cocoa and toast along with an earthy, spicy hop character provide a balanced body to this malt-flavored beer.”
