It’s a cold, hard truth: Men like sandwiches. Reubens, specials, or even hot-dogs. Basically, meat between bread. And very few things complete a sandwich like a pickle. Problem is, we’ve kinda grown tired of the mass-produced pickles taking up residence on supermarket shelves for months on end. Artisanal pickles are fine, but let’s be honest, a jar costs more than the sandwich. What’s a pickle challenged man to do? Make your own. It’s easy and easy on the wallet.
Now, the question is what kind of pickle to make? After all, there are sweet pickles, half-sours, kosher, Polish, gherkins, and even those cute little cornichons. The good thing about pickles is that it’s really up to your own personal taste, so go with what you like. We decided to combine a sour, slightly salty brine with the unmistakable aroma and taste of a hoppy beer. Yep, we are making beer pickles, kiddos, and you can too.
