Veal Osso Bucco with ReAle Extra IPA, Fiamma

Beer is an excellent braising liquid, especially when it comes to cuts of meat that will cook for more than three hours, such as the veal shank in Fiamma’s osso bucco.

The accompanying Italian-style IPA (on tap in the Southwest only at Fiamma) is dry-hopped with notes of citrus and toasted hazelnuts, and each hoppy sip prepares your palate for more meat.
