What’s so special about the steer roast? For starters, the steer is unique.
Spent grains from the brewery are currently being fed to our steer at the Bryersquart Family Farm, one of the top farms in polled genetic cattle in Door County. Bryersquart is family to one of the winery owners. The steer is well cared for by Scott Jeanquart, a genetic expert, who is growing one of Door County’s finest herds. His animals and embryos are sold at auction to buyers in the United States and beyond.
Why is the steer roast called the “BrewVino Roast?”
This steer is raised on Ahnapee Brewery spent grains at the Bryersquart Family Farm (Brew). Prior to the roast, the steer is bathed in a cherry wine marinade (Vino). This is a true farm-to-table experience! And not just anybody is preparing this feast. For starters, the steer is processed by Otto’s Meats in Luxemburg. von Stiehl Winemaker, Aric Schmiling, prepares the special cherry and red wine marinade. Then, the full carcass is marinated for 24 hours prior to the steer roast. The roast begins with a hot fire at 3 am on the day of the event, with a serving time somewhere between noon and 1 pm.
