Collaboration Results In Creation Of “Solid Beer”

December 3, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Both beer and bread rely on similar grains – barley, rye, wheat – along with yeast to come up with related flavors. A California bakery is now ratcheting up the relationship with the help of a brewery to create bread that could be called “solid beer.” Butcher’s Daughter bread and pastry chef Perry Ledesma worked with Lars Larson, brewmaster at Berkeley brewery Trumer Pils, to come up with a bread that even includes a hint of hops, the aromatic flower that gives beer its distinctive bitterness but can overwhelm a loaf of bread. Trial and error, however, led to the successful creation of Toasted Barley Honey, along with sourdough with Hops Fleur (brushed with toasted barley brown butter), and a whole wheat with Hops Levain. The brewmaster and the baker expect this marriage baked in heaven to someday become a national phenomenon.[Image Credit: © The Butcher’s Daughter]
