Chicken Pasta in Creamy Beer Sauce

Chicken Pasta in Creamy Beer Sauce

I love pasta almost as much as I love craft beer, so making this chicken pasta in creamy beer sauce was a best of both worlds for me! When I was planning to make this, I was basically cleaning out the fridge. I had a few veggies, some thawed out chicken, a little carton of cream, and, of course, some craft beer. Using another Alberta craft beer from GP brewing, and the remnants of my fridge cleanup, I ended up…

Red Rye IPA Mushroom Ragu on Flatbreads

Red Rye IPA Mushroom Ragu on Flatbreads

We bought this Cosmic Autumn Ryebellion Red Rye IPA beer in the fall and used it to make this Red Rye IPA Mushroom Ragu recipe back in the fall as well. Now that it is basically spring, and this was an autumn beer, the beer is out of production for the season. But really, you can use any kind of beer you would like for this recipe, and actually an IPA will make the mushroom ragu more bitter than one…

Gose Beer Steamed Mussels

Gose Beer Steamed Mussels

Gose beer is one of those beers that is meant to be enjoyed on a hot summer day. It is refreshing, sweet and sour, and light. It also works perfect when steaming mussels! Basically, any recipe you have for mussels that calls for white wine, replace with a gose beer and you have Gose Beer Steamed Mussels! Easy, tasty, and fun!  I made mussels on Chews and Brews a long time ago – two versions in one post, both made…

Oatmeal Stout Oatmeal Cookies

Oatmeal Stout Oatmeal Cookies

Oatmeal Stout Oatmeal Cookies… I know… not entirely creative. While I was sitting back enjoying Ghost Train Oatmeal Stout from Hell’s Basement brewery, I immediately thought of oatmeal cookies. And creativity aside, I decided to just make the best damn oatmeal cookies I could using this thick, roasty beer.

Lager Beer Braised Chicken with Pasta

Lager Beer Braised Chicken with Pasta

Braising meat with beer just sounds like a fantastic idea to me. People braise meat with wine, so why not beer, right? That is how this lager beer braised chicken with pasta was inspired. And I am thankful for the inspiration because this dish was amazing, if you don’t mind me tooting my own horn. Obviously I love my own cooking and love sharing all the recipes that work (yes I have a lot of failures I don’t share!) but…

Winter Warmer Beer Pumpkin Ice Cream

Winter Warmer Beer Pumpkin Ice Cream

In the dead of winter, most don’t think about making ice cream. But what if it were a winter warmer beer pumpkin ice cream?! A boozy, spicy, sweet treat might be just the perfect end to a heavy winter meal – maybe after chocolate stout beer beef stew? That’s what I was thinking when I made this ice cream – and by make, I mean throw a few things together and into the freezer. That’s right. This is a no…

Honey Jalapeno Strong Beer Chicken

Honey Jalapeno Strong Beer Chicken

One of the easiest ways to incorporate beer into a recipe is to use it as part of a marinade for meat. You can add some of your own favourite ingredients to a beer to make the perfect marinade for chicken, beef, pork or seafood. For this honey jalapeno strong beer chicken I used a strong beer from Delirium as my marinade base and added in jalapenos, onion and garlic, honey, vinegar, salt, soy sauce and olive oil. For added…
