At Roosters, in Ogden and Layton, owners Kym and Pete Buttschardt have always been as serious about food as they are about beer. So, it should come as no surprise that there are a multitude of bodacious beer-and-food matches at Roosters. Shrimp and cheese might sound like an unholy combination. But, trust me, like Kym and Pete, this is a partnership that works. I’ve encountered very few brewpub dishes any more enjoyable than Roosters’ large shrimp baked with a zippy Pepper Jack cheese sauce and crumbled bacon, served with baguette slices and spritzed with Louisiana hot sauce for an additional fiery kick. Forget the shrimp; I could easily just drown myself in that spectacular sauce. Well, with the heat from the hot sauce and both heat and fat from the Pepper Jack cheese, you’d be wise to turn to Roosters’ Heavenly Cream Ale (available only at the Layton location), a full-bodied blond ale, lightly hopped with Willamette hops. This partnership will have you crowing about Roosters.
