Highlights a Friend

 

GABF Logo

 

 

New Holland Brewing Company's Beervangelist, Fred Bueltmann, brings the classic American cookout to the GABF. All year, people are cooking on their grills and washing it down with a cold, craft beer.

Fred will discuss how to pair 

beers to your typical cookout foods and talk about the flavor families of beer, including how and why they are a  

great fit for the grill.

 

For the second year in a row, Fred teams up with Laura Zaspel of Serendipity Catering to provide samples of an appetizer, main dish and dessert, each precisely paired with a New Holland beer.

Did You Know? 

The Hard-Core Facts on
Apples & Pears
  
        

apple and pear  

     

 

More than 2,500 varieties of apples are grown in the United States, but only the crabapple is native to North America.

      

 

Pears are native to Asia and Europe. The first pear tree was planted in the North America in 1620 in the Massachusetts Bay colony.

Apple trees take four to five years to produce their first fruit.


In Chinese, fen li means both "to share a pear" and "to separate." Therefore, it is considered bad luck in China to share a pear because it may lead to separation of friends or lovers.


Apple varieties range in size from a little larger than a cherry to as large as a grapefruit. The largest apple ever picked weighed 3 pounds.


The Bartlett pear is the most popular variety of pear in the United States.

In Europe, the Bartlett is known as the Williams Bon Chrétien or the Williams. It got its American name when a Bostonian named Enoch Bartlett bought a pear orchard and, not knowing the pears already had a name, began distributing them as Bartlett pears.


 

     

The top apple producers around the world are China, United States, Turkey, Poland and Italy. Apples account for 50 percent of international deciduous fruit tree production, and they are a member of the rose family.


 

   

Asian pears were cultivated in China as early as 1134 B.C.  


 

   

It takes about 36 apples to create one gallon of apple cider.
