Episode 23 :: Orchard White Clams

The move into the new house is complete and it’s time to get back to business.  With Summer on the way out, there’s no better way to see it off than with one of the most impressive Belgian Witbeirs I’ve ever tasted, Orchard White from The Bruery right here in Orange County — Placentia, California.  And to make things even better, we’re steaming a big pot of clams in the beer in the classic French manner.  It’s the perfect pairing, and a good way to get things back on track.
