Mixed Berry Beer Muffins

Mixed Berry Beer Muffins

If you follow me, and I hope that you do, you will know that I am not a big fan of baking; but, you will also know that I have dabbled a little here and there in baking with beer! These mixed berry beer muffins have a blueberry wheat ale in them to help with flavour and whatever else yeast and bubbles will do for baking… see how much I know about baking? Not a lot… I know that blueberry…

English Mild Beer Bread

English Mild Beer Bread

A beer bread is an easier type of bread to make where you don’t have to knead it or let it rise. It comes out a bit more cake-like, but also tasty and …bready! The English Mild Beer Bread took me literally 10 mins to make and then an hour in the oven. The beer has yeast in it that helps the bread rise, which is why you don’t need to add any! Science! Pretty neat!

Strawberry Rhubarb Wheat Ale Loaf

Strawberry Rhubarb Wheat Ale Loaf

If you have been reading Chews and Brews from the beginning, you are well aware that I like rhubarb and like using it in baking and cooking. This Strawberry Rhubarb Wheat Ale Loaf is a recipe I have used before in baking, but adding beer adds some different flavours plus yeast which is great for baking loaves and bread! I have used beer before in a loaf, in my Banana Beer Bread. Making fruit loaves like this Strawberry Rhubarb Wheat…

Pub Snacks Beer Cookie Squares

Pub Snacks Beer Cookie Squares

I am very excited for this post, as it is my first recipe using a beer from a brewery that I actually visited! These pub snacks beer cookie squares are made with Folding Mountain Brewing’s Parkway Porter! On my birthday weekend Eric and I drove west of Hinton and visited this brewery for a couple flights and some food, and my parents ended up surprising me with a visit as well! I tasted every beer they had available (I just…

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. 

Pilsner Beer Biscuits

Pilsner Beer Biscuits

Pilsner beer is the world’s most popular style of beer, invented in the Czech Bohemia, by Josef Groll in 1842, at the Pilsner Urquell brewery. They haven’t changed their recipe since; however, other versions from Germany, USA and other countries have developed. Enter the Four Star Pils, a Pilsner beer from Goose Island Brewing. This pilsner takes a blend of German and American hops to create their own pilsner style of beer that is crisp, refreshing, tastes of buttery biscuits…

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…

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!
