Quick Tip:

Heating Pans
If you want to sear meats properly, you need to make sure your pan is sufficiently heated. Don't just turn on the heat and toss the meat in and pray. Depending on the thickness of your pan and the type of meat, you might need to heat a pan for 5 to 10 minutes on medium-high heat to get a really good sear. Add oil after the pan is heated.

Velvet Merkin

I look forward to this beer release every fall. But you gotta move fast cause they don't stay in stores long. I was able to find three this year without too much effort but I knew the release date. And, don't confuse this beer with it's younger cousin Velvet Merlin which is released later in six packs. Velvet Merlin is a great oatmeal stout but it hasn't been aged to perfection in bourbon barrels. Get ready for notes of chocolate, coffee, vanilla and, of course, bourbon. Make sure you get two bottles. Drink one now and age the other one for a year!
