Beer of the week

Beer: Miami Brewing Big Rod Coconut Ale

Style: Golden ale with coconut

Alcohol: 5.4 percent by volume

Price: About $9 for a six-pick of 12-ounce cans at Total Wine & More

Story: When Schnebly Winery in south Miami-Dade County branched out into beer a few years ago with its Miami Brewing Co., Big Rod Coconut Ale was an instant hit. Huge aromas of fresh and toasted coconut lead to similarly tropical flavors with an undercurrent of vanilla. Like an Almond Joy without the chocolate.

Pairing: Big Rod adds a layer of depth and a touch of sweetness to tart, acidic ceviche. Try it with a mixed ceviche from Doral Seafood, 9743 NW 41st St.

    Restaurant recipe: Roasted carrots with avocado

    Dear SOS: Ever since trying the roasted carrots and avocado from Huckleberry Bakery and Café in Santa Monica, California, I can’t stop thinking about them. They taste more like French fries, even though they are just roasted carrots. I’m dying for the recipe. Any help here would be greatly appreciated.
