After a hike up to Lake Ramona at the Blue Sky Ecological Reserve, we headed over to Stone Brewery for a tour...only to realize that a zillion other San Diegans had the same idea. The tour would have to wait for another day, so off to the bar for some macaroni & [beer] cheese and a taste of some fine brews. My favorite from the 30+ unmarked taps: Sublimely Self-Righteous Ale, and a bottle of Fox Barrel Cider. With a taste of the Imperial Russian Stout, an epiphany was had...why not create our own mac n' beer n' cheese? Here is the recipe, with Guinness Draught used. Mmmmm!
