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?

Orange Witbier Chicken Fajitas

Orange Witbier Chicken Fajitas

Everything we cook these days is on the grill.  It is way too warm to be hunched over a stove or oven, inside a stifling hot kitchen.  Instead, we sit outside, in the shade, throw food on the grill, and enjoy craft beers.  Summer isn’t my favourite season (gasp!), but this is my favourite part about summer; grilling outside (or smoking!) and enjoying summer craft beers like IPAs, radlers, and wheat beers.  And of course, if you don’t know by now,…

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…
