Stock vs Broth The basic difference between stock and broth is that stock includes bones, often giving it a gelatinous consistency. Often though, these two terms are used interchangeably in the supermarket. So, what are you really getting? That's as tough to pinpoint as a single recipe for meat loaf. Likely, you will be getting a flavorful liquid simmered with meat, bones, aromatics, onions and salt. Regardless of the name, test the different varieties of broths and stocks to choose your favorite.
If you find yourself lucky enough to acquire this rare double IPA, share it with a couple of friends. But don't expect to go to your local liquor store and find it on the shelves. The search is almost half the fun. Even if you live in Santa Rosa, California, where the beer is brewed, you will be limited to one growler fill and two cases of bottles. I have tried to find it in my area and it does exist but only only for a fleeting moment, like a shooting star. As soon as the limited supplies are placed on the shelf, they sell out almost instantly in Southern California. Fortunately, I have family in Northern California who brought me the famed elixir. What does it taste like? You really need to find out for yourself but it does have notes of pine from the Simcoe hops. It's a must try beer if you are a hop lover, maybe even a holy grail of beers.
