Buying Col Pabst

This week, I was running out of Col Pabst Worcestershire 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 Worcestershire Sauce

This product is made using a family recipe found by one of my web students, Bridget Byrnes, a descendant from the Pabst family, as in Pabst beer. I remember the excitement when she told me about the project. They found the recipe in a box, when they cleaned out a family garage. The whole story is a very interesting read on the Pabst Mansion website, and the sauce is available from the Mansion’s gift shop online.

Description of Col Pabst Worcestershire Sauce

“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.”

Over the years, I have included the sauce in Christmas gifts, Easter baskets, and as birthday gifts. My daughters have mentioned that they have trouble keeping their husbands from taking a swig right out of the bottle. Unlike other Worcestershire sauces, it has a full flavor without the sharpness. I recently used it in baked beans for Thanksgiving.

The History of Worcerstershire 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. ”

About Tamarind

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.

The descriptive 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!
