Along with the sprouts, bulbs, and buds of Spring, our event schedule at Fire Brew is blooming this weekend!
As you may have read in a post from earlier this month, we will be at Ag Fest this Saturday and Sunday, April 29th and 30th. It is going to be a wildly fun time, focused on helping families understand where their food comes from and how Oregon benefits from such a rich agricultural bounty! For more info and tickets check out their website!
Also on Saturday, April 29th, you can catch us at both the Hollywood Farmers Market and Bumble Spring Emporium and Plant Sale. The Market is always a blast, absolutely spoiling us all with the freshest produce direct from the farmers! Bumble Spring Emporium, presented by Go Forth Culture, brings out the latest and greatest talent on the garden, wellness, creative, and food scenes of Portland – come experience something new!
On Sunday, April 30th, join us at the PDX Flea + Food! Hosted on the corner of SE 6th and Salmon, this happening flea market always dazzles on the last Sunday of the month. Come celebrate Spring, shop for rare and creative goods, and obviously have a Fire Brew shot with us!
We’ll be busy this weekend serving up the Brew for any and all, and we hope to see your smiling face!
It was once remarked to the Olympian deity Apollo that Horseradish was worth its weight in gold. For thousands of years, the leaves and roots of this perennial plant were harvested for medicinal and culinary usage. As such, this week begins the Passover tradition in Judaism, which means many observing the holiday will find Horseradish at their dinner table.
Horseradish is a low-fat, high flavor ingredient which packs a serious punch of Vitamin C. The main chemical compound in Horseradish also fights foodborne
bacteria and pathogens (such as E. Coli or Listeria) and is responsible for the pungent but invigorating taste you’ve come to know.
A little goes a long way, which is why we’ve put a small but meaningful serving of fresh Horseradish in our Fire Brew.
One of the oldest cultivated plants in the world, Garlic belongs to a family of flora distinguished by its pungent aroma and taste.
Though its role in the battle against vampires is still open to interpretation, Garlic has been used as a remedy of sorts for over 5000 years (per ancient Sanskrit documentation). During World War I it was even applied to wounds in order to cleanse, treat, and heal – earning Garlic the nickname ‘Russian penicillin’ because of its antibacterial properties.
Garlic is a bountiful source of Vitamins C and B6, and also minerals including phosphorous, calcium, potassium, iron and copper. It helps improve heart health, lower cholesterol and blood pressure, support blood flow as an anti-coagulant, and even reduce the risks of cancer.
Garlic is a prolific member of our Fire Brew recipes, and for good reasons. This daily dose of raw, fresh Garlic nourishes even more than you may have originally thought. Last but certainly not least, it is a key player in creating the unique and explosive flavor you can expect from a shot of your favorite Fire Brew!
