I had the opportunity to partner with one of my very favorite sites on the web, Pints and Plates, to attempt one of their tried and true recipes and pair it with one of our favorite beers. I chose this Whipped Goat Cheese Crostini for the reasons above, but also because we just LOVE finger food around the Super Bowl. I want to taste everything on the table, so all the items need to be tapas style for me. This crostini is perfect. About two bites of fabulous goat cheese with just a hint of apple, all on perfectly toasted french bread. Wash it down with some Redd’s Apple Ale and you’re really in business!
