We dry hopped The Ogden with American Citra® and Brewer’s Gold hops to add spicy, tropical flavors. Then we fermented it with a unique Belgian yeast to give it a bold, complex palate.
Tripels love basil. You're good to go with anything pesto. Whip up a simple pasta dish with sautéed veggies, Swiss chard, and a pesto cream sauce. Pair it with Maredsous 10. Herb and spice flavors in the beer merge with the pesto while the mid-palate sweetness grabs hold of the veggies. High carbonation clears away the cream.
Tripels also love shellfish, and shellfish loves basil. Try a shrimp margherita pizza with the Allagash Tripel Reserve. The booze and bubbles will tackle the cheese, but the light body and light flavors won't overwhelm the pie.
For something spicier, go with Thai dishes like spicy basil chicken. Alcohol can sometimes become hot in the presence of spice, so Chimay Cinq Cents at 8% is a good choice with this zippy dish.
William Ogden opened Chicago’s first brewery. He was the city’s first mayor. And he added the North Brand channel to the Chicago River that created the island from which we take our name. Three good reasons why we gave our first-ever Belgian Style Tripel his name. We dry hopped The Ogden with American Citra® and Brewer’s Gold hops to add spicy, tropical flavors. Then we fermented it with a unique Belgian yeast to give it a bold, complex palate.
