Cheese Profile: Hot Pepper Jack
This fresh, mild cheese is livened up with the addition of hot chili peppers. A slightly spicy potato soup is warming on chilly afternoons: combine celery, shallot, garlic, potatoes, red pepper flakes and shredded pepper jack in chicken broth, then top with cooked bacon and sliced scallions. Stuff a butterflied boneless chicken breast with spinach and pepper jack for a bit of extra heat. A basic béchamel sauce becomes the perfect cheesy nacho topping when you stir in grated cheddar and pepper jack cheeses. Drizzle it atop layers of tortilla chips, black beans, sliced radishes and chopped cilantro for a supreme snack.
The Best Shopping Experience In Town!
The best shopping experience in town just got better! We officially welcome local Growler Country to the store. The Growler Country Outpost, a self contained unit located across from the refrigerated beer cooler, will provide 32 or 64 ounce growlers of local craft beer and cold brewed coffee from local Lucky Goat Coffee Co.
To begin, nine taps will be dedicated to a rotating selection of local brews. The remaining tap will offer locally roasted coffee, cold brewed for 16 hours before heading to your favorite cup. We are exploring the option of offering kombucha on tap and will consider other offerings like root beer, as well. The station will be open Tuesday-Saturday 12 pm-8 pm and Sunday 12 pm-6 pm and will accept debit, credit and Growler Country gift cards.
A state-of-the-art system allows you to find out what’s on tap with ease. Simply visit www.growlercountry.com (where you can also sign up for their newsletters) and click on the Outpost location for a current list of what’s on tap, follow Growler Country on Facebook, or Twitter (@GC_Outpost_pkwy). Of course, the Co-op’s Facebook and Twitter pages will also be keeping you informed of the latest selections.
But the fun doesn’t stop there! Sometime in early 2016, we will expand our offerings to include pints of beer. That’s right, you will be able to enjoy a beer while you leisurely shop or as a complement to your meal.
Being the leader in local products is kinda our thing and we couldn’t be prouder to welcome Growler Country to the co-op family while simultaneously expanding our local product selection.
More About Growler Country
Growler Country is a veteran owned and operated growler filling station in Tallahassee, Florida. Brothers Michael and Bobby Carbonell hatched the idea over beers in October 2013 and lobbied along side the Florida Brewer’s Guild to keep growler fills legal. With victory at hand, Michael and Bobby opened Florida’s first dedicated growler filling station at 3305 Capital Circle NE.
