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…

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. 

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…

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…

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…
