Shipyard Shabu Shabu ("Swish Shish")

** Shabu shabu is one of Japan's most popular dishes and is a glorified fondue. It consists of paper-thin slices of raw beef and raw vegetables, cooked by each diner at the table in a pot of hot broth. The name comes from the sound that is made as the meat is swished through the broth: 'swish swish.'

Rad Clues to all Brews:

There are only two categories of beer - Ale and Lager. From there are endless variations. Let's explore some of the more popular styles within each category:

Lager
Made with bottom-fermenting yeasts at cold temperatures.

Pale Lagers are what many Americans think of as "beer", i.e. Miller and Bud. Also called "American Adjunct Lager". If this is the only beer you drink, it's time to branch out!

Pilsner has a hoppier taste than pale lagers, and is traditionally from the Czech Republic.

Bock is less popular than Pale Lagers or "Pils," but deserves more attention. Bocks often have a complex malty flavor with less hoppiness. Amber to dark color, with a rich taste.

Ale Made with top-fermenting yeasts at warm temperatures. Ales are what most British people think of as "beer".

Wheat Beer and Belgian White are both styles, which are made with wheat and are often seasoned by orange and spices.

IPA (India Pale Ale) is a very hoppy and dry beer with medium color.

Porter is a very dark, full bodied brew. They have a very strong malty flavor, with hints of chocolate, caramel, and coffee.

Stout is a subcategory of Porter. Stouts have more alcohol content than Porters, and also have a slightly dryer and more bitter characteristic.
