Waffle Week at Brown's

brows waffle week logoThis sounds fun (and potentially yummy): next week is "Waffle Week" at Brown's Brewing in Troy. From the press release:

For on August 24, 1869, one Cornelius Swarthout of Troy, New York was awarded the very first patent for the Waffle Iron. From that day forward, waffle enthusiasts the world over rejoiced, and the making of those fried battery delights would never be the same.
To commemorate this erroneously overlooked moment in history, Brown's Brewing Company is hosting its first ever "Waffle Week - A Glorious Celebration in Praise of The Waffle Iron." Beginning on Monday, August 23, Brown's will offer a different waffle each day - all made with one of Brown's Dependable Ales & Lagers. And to truly celebrate the occasion, Brown's is featuring a famous Waffler in history to represent the dish of the day.

The waffle-by-waffle schedule is after the jump. It includes a "a snappy Cajun Creole Waffle" and a "rich Oatmeal Stout Dark Chocolate Waffle."

Sadly, there's no offal falafel waffle...

Monday, 8/23 - The Joe Lieberman
Democrat. Independent. John McCain for President endorser. What's your party, Joe? Not sure, but what is sure is that this waffling Senator is from the Nutmeg State of Connecticut. And to salute him, we offer a Brown's Porter-Sweet Potato/Nutmeg Waffle with a Whisky Syrup.

Tuesday, 8/24 - The Brett Favre
Packer? Retired? Jet? Retired? Viking? Retired? Sure we love Brett. At his age, he's an inspiration to any of us former athletes over 40. But what's his deal? Is he in or out? We do know that Brett is from the Bayou country and our Chef Paul Brett has concocted a snappy Cajun Creole Waffle seasoned with Old Bay and topped with a Crayfish/Andouille Sausage Etoufee made with our Brown Ale.

Wednesday, 8/25 - The Arlen Specter
Yet another waffling politician? Sure! This Oklahoma born Senator from Pennsylvania began his career as a democrat, then became a Republican and recently jumped the G.O.P. ship to become a Dem again in order to save his job. Last we heard, he's not leaving the Keystone State, so we're dishing up a tasty tribute to Pennsylvania Dutch Country with a rich Oatmeal Stout Dark Chocolate Waffle topped with a White Chocolate Syrup and Cinnamon Whipped Cream.

Thursday, 8/26 - The Bill Parcells
We love Bill. One of the greatest coaches in the history of pro football ... he's even lead one or two, or three of our area's favorite teams, the Giants. And the Patriots, no, wait the Jets. Then the Patriots. Then the Jets. Then the Cowboys?! AFC, NFC, Inter-division rivals? We love ya, Big Tuna. Hope all's well in Miami. This waffle is lovingly made with our Hefe-Weizen and a Tuna Nicoise Motif.

Friday, 8/27 - The Benedict Arnold
To conclude the week, we commemorate our nation's greatest Waffler of all time - Benedict Arnold. Continental Patriot. British General. Traitor. Arnold set the standard for waffling in America - and for that, we tip our iron to him with a serving of an Eggs Benedict Waffle, complete with a Tomhannock Pilsner infused waffle topped with a Poached Egg, Canadian Bacon, and our Tomhannock Pilsner Hollandaise.

The Benedict Arnold looks deeeeelish. Is that unpatriotic?

i wish it was pancakes...

Where's the Fried Chicken & Waffles a la Roscoe's?

Oh, I am SO THERE on Wednesday. Dark Chocolate Waffle with White Chocolate Syrup and Cinnamon Whipped Cream? Yes, please!

This makes me wish I lived closer to Troy.

@Meagan: I tried The Arlen Specter tonight, it was delicious. You probably have another hour to go...
