A NEW BOTTLE OF COL PABST WORCHESTERSHIRE SAUCE
Buying Col Pabst
This week, I was running out of Col Pabst Worchestershire Sauce, so I had to run to Orange Street Food Farm for another!
Update: Col Pabst is no longer available at Orange Street Food Farm in Missoula. In Missoula, it’s currently available at Double K Ranch Deli, along with other delicious specialty items.
How I Learned about Col Pabst Worchestershire Sauce
This product is made with a family recipe found by one of my web students Bridget Byrnes. I remember when she told me about the project. It seems that the recipe was found in a box in a garage.
“Colonel Pabst All-Malt Amber Lager Worcestershire sauce starts with a fresh Milwaukee Amber Lager and blends in 21 all natural ingredients from around the world, including Indian tamarind, Grenadian ginger and Madras curry. The sauce is small-batch brewed, bottled and aged to perfection, bringing you the most rich and flavorful Worcestershire sauce on the market today.”
The last paragraph above was in all caps on the website. To copy the text here, I would have had to retype it. I made the suggestion to Bridget, that she use CSS to make it caps. So, she did! Thanks, Bridget!
The History of Worcherstershire Sauce
If it seems like the ingredients are heavy on flavors from India, the history of the sauce is based in India. “The story goes that Lord Sandys, a local aristocrat who had been Governor of Bengal, visited the chemist shop asking for a recipe he had found in India to be made up. ”
Tamarind is an essential ingredient in Worcestershire sauce. While tamarind originated in Madagascar, it has been cultivated in India for thousands of years, and is a flavor associated with Indian food.
