We’re not talented cooks, but a dapper man can feed himself. Chili may be a bit out of season, but hot dogs are right in line. We went with our homemade Chili Dog and Laguinatas Wilco Tango Foxtrot Jobless Recovery Ale.

The brown hoppy ale complements the acidic chili and salty hot dog. The cheese is optional and the entire meal  a nice finish. Here’s the ingredients you’ll need and the recipe on how to make your own:
