Boom Island Thanksgiving Pairing No. 4: Thoprock & Cranberry Sauce

IMG_7993Nix the canned cranberry sauce this year and make this homemade sauce using our Thoprock IPA! IPAs can become even more bitter when boiled or reduced, so we added it at the end. This late addition allows the flowery, citrus flavor of West Coast hops to shine through. Please celebrate responsibly. We wouldn’t want you to get sauced on our account!

serves 6-8

• 1 – 12 oz package fresh or frozen whole cranberries
• ¾ cup water
• ¾ cup sugar
• 2 tsp orange zest
• ½ cup Thoprock

• In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat combine the water and sugar. Bring to a boil, stirring until the sugar is dissolved.
