Tonight, I also had this pint of Samuel Smith's Organic Chocolate Stout. It's supremely delicious! I would put it up there with the Lugene Chocolate stout mentioned above, maybe even a little better. I would have to put them both side by side to be sure...hmmm that's a really good idea. Hopefully Krug Park will have both on tap soon. I paired this beer with a grilled hamburger from B & B Meat Locker of Wynot, NE, one of our favorite vendors at Omaha's Farmer's Market. We also roasted some root vegetables and onions. This beer fit perfectly with the menu, a hearty beer for hearty fair.
I didn't preach this weekend, a well needed break. I love preaching week in week out. The rhythm of prayer, study, and preparation is life giving and might be the best way that I am a disciple. Nonetheless, having a week of not preaching on occasion helps keep the creative ground fertile. It's like resting a field for a season so that the soil can regain nutrients. So, I am excited to gear up for next week's sermon. Prep begins tomorrow and culminates with editing at Krug Park on Thrusday with, hopefully, a side by side comparison of the Lugene and Samuel Smith Stouts.
