10 Recipes for Cooking with Beer!

10 Recipes for Cooking with Beer!

Lately I’ve been on a kick where I want to make and publish recipes that have beer as an ingredient. Cooking with beer is something that seemed natural for me to incorporate into Chews and Brews. If you don’t know already, I really like beer; and I especially like craft beer. Craft beer has a lot more flavour, I find, and it is usually made with pure love and hard work. Brewers put everything they have into selecting the perfect…

Belgian Fruit Beer Brownies

Belgian Fruit Beer Brownies

Here I go baking again… with beer! I’ve baked with beer before – Banana Beer Bread and Milk Stout Chocolate Chip Cookies – both turned out perfectly! I am constantly looking for new ways to add beer to my cooking and baking. When we picked up this Belgian Style Fruit Beer – Cherazz – from Big Rock Brewery, I instantly thought the sweetness of the beer would be perfect in a dessert – and that’s the story of how these…

Beer Can Chicken

Beer Can Chicken

Have you ever had beer can chicken? If you haven’t, then you must. It’s seriously such an easy way to perfectly cook a whole chicken on the barbecue. Juicy inside and crispy outside, meanwhile full of flavours! Making your beer can chicken does require a few easy steps that will all be worth it in the end. First, obviously, is picking that beer. We’ve done beer can chicken with a cheap lager mostly, but this time I am using Big…

Wake-Up Coffee Porter Granola

Wake-Up Coffee Porter Granola

Granola is more my husband’s kind of breakfast; I am more of an egg white and ham sandwich type… or chicken breakfast sausages with eggs… or steak and eggs… savoury breakfast – that’s me! But I saw a recipe in one of my Beer Advocate magazines for a coffee porter granola and played on that idea to make this wake-up coffee granola for Eric! He likes it best with some coconut Greek yogurt! 

Banana Beer Bread

Banana Beer Bread

I love banana bread and I think you all know by now that I love beer; so it seemed like a no-brainer to me to make a banana beer bread! This recipe for banana beer bread turned out to be so moist, fluffy and held a lot of both nutty and banana flavours! You can use any beer you might have on hand, but I would suggest a brown ale because they tend to be nutty, malty and loaded with…

Tropical Ale Vinaigrette

Tropical Ale Vinaigrette

Homemade vinaigrettes for salads are not uncommon in my house. Often I will mix a vinegar with an oil, some herbs and spice and throw it on the salad of the day and it always tastes exceptional! When my friend gave me a six pack of Dead Frog’s Tropic Vice, Tropical Fruit Ale, I decided to try it in a vinaigrette; a tropical ale vinaigrette! 

Pale Ale Grainy Beer Mustard

Pale Ale Grainy Beer Mustard

Want to make a super simple recipe that will wow your friends and family!? Make your own beer mustard! I’m actually a little annoyed at how easy this was because if I knew then what I know now, I would have been making beer mustard for a while now! Now that I have tried pale ale beer I want to make some more beer mustard but with stouts and porters or make a spicy beer mustard. But for today, I…

IPA Simple Syrup Grapefruit Cocktail

IPA Simple Syrup Grapefruit Cocktail

I really like craft beer, in case you didn’t know that about me already! My favourite characteristic of craft beer is that the ingredients are usually hand selected, specifically picked to create a certain flavour characteristic. This end goal flavour characteristic is what brings me back to trying new craft beers all the time. One ingredient in beer is hops. Hops will give beer that bitter taste but also can add a level of citrus, floral, herbal or grassy type…
