Salmon with Pilsner Asian Glaze

Salmon with Pilsner Asian Glaze

Happy New Year! We are in a new decade, 2020, and it still feels futuristic to me. Also, the 90s being 20-30 years ago seems impossible… how did time fly and how am I this old?! I turn 40 this year, which is both very exciting and unbelievable to me. Not only do I not feel 40, I don’t act it! I don’t plan to ever act my age, to be honest. That’s one of my resolutions for 2020 –…

Kung Pao Beer Chicken

Kung Pao Beer Chicken

I love a good stir fry. It’s kind of my way of cleaning out the vegetable drawer in the fridge when there are peppers, celery, maybe some carrots or broccoli threatening to expire on me. I can quickly whip up a sauce, find a protein like chicken breasts in the freezer, and start a pot of rice, and voila, dinner is done! When thinking about a stir-fry sauce, I thought about how I could incorporate beer and then my stir…

Pale Ale Crispy Fried Chicken

Pale Ale Crispy Fried Chicken

Who doesn’t love crispy fried chicken? And even better than that is a Pale Ale Crispy Fried Chicken! Adding beer to a marinade of buttermilk and hot sauce helps with the tenderizing of the beer along with adding flavour, of course. I have used beer in marinating before with the Pale Ale Yogurt Marinated Chicken Breasts or the Honey Cream Ale Grilled Drumsticks. This Pale Ale Crispy Fried Chicken can be made into a chicken sandwich or a slider, but…

Pale Ale Yogurt Marinated Chicken Breasts

Okay, so it’s been a while since I have posted. Spring got away from me a little, but I have remained active on Instagram showing you what craft beers I have been trying out. One of the great beers I did try this spring, but waiting until now to post, was the Ten Peaks Pale Ale from Canmore Brewing Company. When I had this beer, I thought it would be great to incorporate it into a recipe, and alas, here…

Lager Beer and Pineapple Juice Chicken Tacos

Lager Beer and Pineapple Juice Chicken Tacos

I have made tacos, or taco-like dishes before, and a couple of times with beer. These are a little different in that I am using my Instant Pot to make the shredded tasty chicken part of the taco. And, of course, there is beer involved! These Lager Beer and Pineapple Juice Chicken Tacos were undeniably my favourite of the tacos I have done. They were juicy, full of flavour, and just down right addicting.

Pilsner Beer Chicken Meatloaf

Pilsner Beer Chicken Meatloaf

First off, before you leave, know that I hate meatloaf too. It has never been a choice food for me, being that I am not the biggest fan of ground beef, plus it’s meat… in a loaf… Eck… but I stumbled upon a recipe of regular meatloaf with beer added to it to add more flavour and moisture. I decided to give it a go, using ground chicken instead of beef, making this Pilsner Beer Chicken Meatloaf. I selected a…

Coq Au Stout (a.k.a Stout Beer Chicken Stew)

Coq Au Stout (a.k.a Stout Beer Chicken Stew)

If you have ever had or heard of coq au vin, then I think you know where I am going with this coq au stout recipe. Yes, I am taking the classic French dish coq au vin, replacing the red wine with a dark stout beer, and making coq au stout. The end result? A rich, delicious tasting stout beer chicken stew that did not disappoint at all. And, of course, an Alberta Craft Beer stout was used in this…
