Little Sumpin’ Stoopid: Lagunitas Sausage Gravy and Biscuits
On the east coast and throughout the country, this winter has been unrelenting. Even now that spring is upon us, there are chilly temperatures and threats of more snow. Now more than ever, we are in need of comfort food to warm our bones and keep us insulated. Even the warmer states would be remiss if they didn’t make this recipe.
Sausage Gravy and Biscuits is the comfiest of comfort foods. But adding Lagunitas Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’ wheat ale to the biscuits adds a fun new complexity to the deliciousness of homemade biscuits and using Lagunitas Hop Stoopid in the sausage gravy ties it together with a strong hop flavor that mingles well with the richness of the gravy.
Whether you need to warm up or just eat well, give this awesome recipe a go.
