Kicking off the summer and celebrating the reopening of frog season with none other than Sauteed Frog Legs. Frog legs rank high in my list of favorite things to eat. If prepared right they are hard to beat. Lean on acidity to help break them down and you won’t be disappointed.
Pairs well with: Shiner Weisse N’ Easy
Wheat beer brewed with Texas dewberries. Dewberries are another summer favorite of mine. This beer pairs perfectly in season , and certainly in flavor with the sauteed frog legs.
