Ice Cream, Beer and More! The Summer of Wasabi!
It has been such a fun summer for us here at Oregon Coast Wasabi and we wanted to share the joy with you!
We previously let you know about 6 different ways people are using our all purpose wasabi this summer at picnics, BBQs and Family Gatherings – http://www.thewasabistore.com/thewasabistore/b3flbzr8jekjmegj398welprxxkg5z
In addition - the wasabi we grow right here on the Oregon Coast has been appearing in some really fun places. Our wasabi was used this summer in both an ice cream and in a beer!
Here are those stories!
Salt & Straw is a wonderful ice cream company with locations in Portland, Seattle, San Diego, Los Angeles, and San Francisco.
The Portland area Salt & Straw Ice Cream shops featured our Wasabi in one of their special flavors for July – raspberry sorbet!
They also came out and filmed at the farm. Here is a link to their article that has the short video they made about us - https://saltandstraw.com/collab-lab-oregon-coast-wasabi/
Sunriver Brewing is a wonderful brewery located in Sunriver, Oregon. They were invited to brew a beer for The 2019 Oregon Brewers Festival (OBF) that happened in Portland, Oregon at the end of July.
They named this beer “Sunriver Roll” and they brewed it with our wasabi!
Here is the description of this beer - "Sunriver’s Japanese Dry Lager is the base for this Kappamaki roll-inspired beer. The brewers added fresh cucumbers, ginger, and Oregon Coast Wasabi to create a refreshing journey into Japanese cuisine."
This beer was even named of one the “Recommended Beers” to drink at OBF by The New School Beer website.
They said - “Expect cravings for sushi to follow this expertly crafted rice lager with ginger and just a hint of wasabi. Don’t let the word ‘wasabi’ lead you astray. This is a must try lager that you’ll taste once and return for a full pour of”
Wow! This beer was amazing, and we are very much hoping that Sunriver will brew it again next summer!
If you hear of any fun uses for wasabi – please pass them on to us!
