There’s No Need To Guzzle Your Craft Beer While Your Child Eats For Free This June At Mroganfield’s!

It’s been at least a couple of years since the arrival of my grandsons that I let my hair down so when Bar MF by Morganfield’s invited me to one of their Saturday Beer Club events, I gladly accepted.

The kitchen was a huge glass partitioned area where one can observe the chefs at work. And oh, that’s the succulent burnt-end skewers (thick cut pork) served with delicious pineapple satay sauce this cook’s grilling. I loved them and had seconds!

Andrew and I registered ourselves at the entrance to the main restaurant and got ourselves wrist tags for our free flow of crafted beers and food. We proceeded to a table near the bar and buffet spread.

The 3C’s of Beer and Food Pairing are Contrast, Complement and Cleanse!
Contrast – Everyone says opposite attract and that’s especially true for beer and food. When mixed together, you can push and pull tastes, bringing out unique characteristics in both your pint and plate.
Complement – Pair beer and food that share similar flavours and characteristics. Delicate dishes work best with delicate beers, and strongly flavoured foods go great with beers that have more intense flavour and aromas.
Cleanse – Beer is the perfect palate cleanser and that’s because the carbonation, alcohol and hops from beer “cut through” th flavours and textures on your taste buds, making each bite taste just as flavourful as the first.

The 4 main ingredients of Beer are Water, Yeast, Malts and Hops.
Malts are germinated cereal grains. It contributes to the beer colour, flavour and mouthfeel. Malts make beer sweet and can also make the beer darker and heavier.
Hops is the bitterness that balances the sweetness of malt. There are 2 types of hops, Bittering Hops which do as much as the name implies and Aroma Hops which adds citrusy flavours.

There are 10 kinds of craft beers served at Bar MF by Morganfield’s and we tried small glasses of several varieties. The one both Andrew and I agreed on is SweetWater Going Coastal IPA. He also liked the Stone & Wood Pacific Ale but I found that too light – like drinking fruit flavoured sparkling water. I think the Beerfarm Western Cider falls into this category of tongue cleanser although I much prefer it to the former. The Beerfarm West Coast Lager is a good thirst quencher with its crisp and citrusy notes. We didn’t quite take to Black Kite Wheat but given the right mood and food, their Bridgeroad Robust Porter can be libidinous, hahaha…

Everything in moderation:

Of course, alcoholic drinks are fermented, too, and red wine in moderation is actively gut-friendly. This is partly to do with the polyphenols in red wine, which you may have already heard about in their capacity as antioxidants, but they have the added benefit of being rocket fuel for good bacteria. It seems to be the combination of alcohol and polyphenols that is especially good. “If you compare grape juice and wine and gin’s effects on the microbiome,” says Spector, “gin isn’t very good, but red wine is better than grape juice. So, alcohol plus the fruit is good.”

Not surprisingly, warns Spector, “microbes don’t cope very well if you drink too much, and liver damage also causes problems for your microbes”. But he does hypothesise that beer and cider in moderation “are probably also of some benefit”. The alcohol has killed off the fermenting microbes before you drink, but you still get the tasty and useful chemical byproducts from fermentation. “A lot of these things that are thought to be bad for you,” says Spector, “have so many polyphenols that they might be overcoming any potential downsides.” He also recommends a little polyphenol-packed coffee and dark chocolate. – https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2018/jan/29/magical-microbes-how-to-feed-your-gut

If your six-pack abs have morphed into a keg, don’t blame the beers alone!

When you take in more calories than you burn, the excess calories are stored as fat. Where your body stores that fat is determined in part by your age, sex, and hormones.

Boys and girls start out with similar fat storage patterns, but puberty changes that. Women have more subcutaneous fat (the kind under the skin) than men, so those extra fat calories tend to be deposited in their arms, thighs, and buttocks, as well as their bellies. Because men have less subcutaneous fat, they store more in their bellies. –

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED:
DO DRINK IN MODERATION. That goes for everything in life, doesn’t it?

DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE! There’s always a teetotaller in your circle of buddies, a spouse/family member you can make arrangements for transportation. If none of the above exists in your present situation, there’s always the reliable “Dive Home Services” and mobile apps such as ValetUncle that can accurately pinpoint your location (before you hit alcoholic amnesia) in Singapore.
