Beer shows up in all kinds of food recipes. It adds crisp texture to hunks of beer-battered fish and combines perfectly with a hot pretzel in beer cheese sauce. Beer goes in bread recipes, punches up broth for clams and mussels, and during the summer season, beer can help your grilled meats cook to a flavorful perfection.
A Twitter exchange last week on the topic of barbecue roused my appetite. I just checked out three spots that were “new” in a fluid sense of the word—Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q is new to me, since it opened in 2007 during my three-year absence; D.B.A. Barbecue has been open almost five weeks; and Rolling Bones BBQ has been under new ownership since June 15.
When I think of beverages to serve with barbecue, the obvious—cold beer—usually comes to mind. I’ve yet to sample any ‘cue at the new DBA Barbecue in Virginia-Highland, but I’m already a fan of the drinks. The other night after a home-cooked dinner, a friend and I went for a walk into the Highlands and, having worked up a sweat in this balmy weather, decided to grab a refresher. We passed El Taco, where crowds were two-deep at the bar for margaritas, and settled on the laid-back patio at DBA next door—the hostess said we were welcome to sit out there just for drinks. DBA has plenty of beer selections—Abita, Sweetwater and Terrapin on tap; lots of craft bottles—plus a full wine list, but the intriguing cocktails got our attention.
