Bravo's Top Chef and LandShark Lager

Post by parithedfred »

I normally don't watch Top Chef but the wife was flipping channels and stopped on it so what the heck. The challenge was to pair up a beer with a dish. Jennifer won the challenge using LandShark Lager, can't remember the food. I just thought it was kind of cool.

Believe it was paired with Beignets. Obviously those squawking about the quality of Landshark are pairing it with wrong food. Perhaps, not pairing it all--- just drinking it.

We have it here in Illinois, and to be honest your not missing much. I personally didn't like it so I'm sticking with Corona.

I so agree! The first six pack was a great novelty, but I'll still to my regular beer.

I, too, was anxious to try it. On a recent trip to Florida, I found it in a local grocery store. A friend and I picked up a six-pack (we'll try anything that's beer related!) and we weren't terribly impressed. I'll drink it if it's around, but I certainly won't go out of my way to buy it again.
I'm growing older, but not up!

The stores I near here in Pa just started carrying it. Might be cause a couple f us were calling to check each week when they were getting it in. We will be picking up a case soon. I'll let you know what we think when we first try it.

I guess I am the minority but...I think it is a great summer beer, with a lime just like a Corona. Guess that is what makes the Parrothead Nation go round... :lol:

My brother-in-law loves it. I like it OK, its just a little pricey. I'll stick with Dos Equis/Modelo at that price range.

yep - i think i've made my personal comments already - but i got some feedback from outside the phlock this weekend

we were at an outdoors, all day event that included a tournament of the finest leisure games - anyhow, we brought some landshark with us as we would be outside most of the day and prefer it as a very light, easy drinking summer beer to corona and some of the other light mexican style beers (and in AZ it's actually a little cheaper!)

anyhow, it was a huge success - my cooler got empty real quick and I started to see fins sticking over koozies more and more as the day progressed - people were grabbing it over the dos equis, corona and fat tire on hand

on a 90 degree sunny day it works just fine when I dont' want something heavy and most of the other people there seemed to agree

I saw that too!! (Wife and I are reality TV junkies)

I haven't found any Land Shark yet so will probably have to wait until October at Shoreline to try it.

Think they'll have it there? :wink:


For the naysayers of the group (those who HAVE tried it :lol: ) the chefs picked the beers they used after a blind taste test of 3 of the 16 beers. Of course the chef who won didn't have first choice. :D

I was never a big fan of Corona, but this stuff isn't bad. I typically prefer a darker, heavier beer (Guiness) normally but it sucks if you don't get it at the bar. I'll take Landshark.
