Today’s Five Finds on Friday come from Dave Warwick, Founding Brewmaster of Three Notch’d Brewing Company. If 2016 has been challenging for you, Three Notch’d has just what you need: a hug. Next Saturday, December 17, the brewery is rolling out a new beer called Group Hug, its first ever collaboration with crosstown friend Champion Brewing Company. Group Hug is a pale ale blending Lemongrass with three kinds of hops: Citra, Amarillo, and Sorachi Ace. The release party starts at 1 pm at Champion on the 17th. Details here. Hugging encouraged. Warwick’s picks: 

1) Pastrami Sandwich at Kardinal Hall. “In-house pastrami, McClure cheese, and rye bread from Albemarle Baking Co. Wash it down with a Ghost of the 43rd APA from Three Notch’d Brewing Co.”

2) Scrapple, Egg and Cheese Biscuit at Ace Biscuit and BBQ. “Available after Pig Roasts. I grew up in Maryland, scrapple is a delicacy there, and Ace does it right! Gotta get pimiento cheese on it!”

3) Cheese Curds at South Street Brewery. “Just amazing. Beautifully paired with Mitch Hamilton’s My Personal Helles Lager.”

4) Ham, Egg and Cheese Breakfast Sandwich at Keevil & Keevil Grocery and Kitchen. “Cheesy, gooey, egg yokey goodness. All Virginia-sourced ingredients. Made to order or grab one out of the hot box if you’re in a hurry to get to work. They also have cold-brewed coffee on nitro from Charlottesville’s Snowing in Space Coffee Co. You can even take a growler of it to the office with you.”

5) Crazy Legs at LW’s Livery Stable. “Pork shanks marinated in jerk seasoning, paired with their Headless Horseman cocktail.”
