When Jensen Ackles isn’t playing Dean Winchester on The CW’s hit thriller series “Supernatural,” he nurtures his hidden talent and passion project: Family Business Beer Co., a new destination brewery and tap room set on a horse ranch just outside of Austin, Texas. Here you’ll find small-batch IPAs, stouts, and lagers, as well as Jep’s Southern Roots food truck run by Ackles’ friends and “Duck Dynasty” stars Jep and Jessica Robertson.
Ackles is all about the scrumptious Cajun shrimp po’boy sandwich, with crisp seafood, fresh lettuce and tomato, and a creamy, spicy remoulade; it pairs perfectly with their classic American IPA with notes of pineapple and grapefruit. “I’ll put that with the Cosmic Cowboy IPA all day long,” he tells Watch! in their November-December 2018 issue. Sounds like a hoppy pairing to us!

If you do a significant amount of deep frying, and/or if frying on the stovetop still makes you nervous, even in the deepest Dutch oven, it makes sense to invest in an electric fryer like this reasonably priced and highly rated model.See It ›
