Moroccan Spiced Couscous with Roasted Vegetables {and my fave spring seasonal}

Moroccan Spiced Couscous with Roasted Vegetables {and my fave spring seasonal}

Goodbye winter. Goodbye cold, grey sadness, welcome Aprihop. Aka SPRING. Dogfish Head nails this delicious spring seasonal every year. Mmmm Aprihop. My absolute favorite springtime beer. AND it pairs crazy well with the couscous I’m about to tell you about. As you might have guessed, Aprihop has apricots, and lots of hop action: It is both continuously hopped as its brewed, then dry hopped as it ferments.

(You might not know that Magic Hat #9 has apricot extract in it, but then again you probably do, ’cause you’re awesome like that). Aprihop is available March-May, so go out and find some!
