Kellan has been a wonderful partner for Blue Moon! It all started when we were in a jam to develop recipes for pairings with our seasonal beers. At Blue Moon Brewing Company, we love delicious, flavorful beer and great food to go with it. It’s all about enjoying a celebration with friends – and not over complicating things. We needed simple yet delicious recipes that didn’t require a culinary arts degree to prepare them! Kellan nailed it! He really gets food and our drinker. My personal favorite is the cedar plank salmon that pairs with our Vintage Blonde Ale. Though I loved his twist on beer can chicken that we used to support our can launch. Fun! – Amy, Brand Manager, Blue Moon Brewing Company
