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…

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…

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…

Chocolate Stout Beef Stew

Chocolate Stout Beef Stew

The weather here has now dropped below zero… it didn’t even happen gradually… only a couple weeks ago it was 19 above… and then within a day, it dropped below zero… and stayed there! As soon as the weather drops like this, I am craving dark beers and rich soups and stews. I have made a few Guinness beef stews in my time, but thought it would be just as tasty to use a different stout beer to make this…

Beer and Lime Cauliflower Tacos

Beer and Lime Cauliflower Tacos

Cauliflower is kind of a big deal. It can be found on almost any menu these days: fried, roasted, in salads and soups, or as an alternative to carbohydrates as in cauliflower rice. I am not going to lie; I am totally the type of person that jumps on food-trend bandwagons and hangs onto them with all my might. Another trend that started a long time ago is “Meatless Monday’s” and we like to incorporate meatless meals on Monday’s as…
