Seriously Good Wheat Ale Beer Brined Pork Chops

Seriously Good Wheat Ale Beer Brined Pork Chops

Brining meat in beer. Mmmmm….. Beer contains enzymes that help break down tough fibres in meat, making it more tender, moist, and flavourful at the same time.

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,…
