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. I brined a whole turkey once in beer, and that didn’t disappoint! And these Wheat Ale Beer Brined Pork Chops didn’t either! They are seriously good. A variety of beers can be used to brine or marinate meat. Brown ales are great for beef. Wheat ales and hefeweizens are pretty versatile and can…

Blonde Ale Air Fryer Crispy French Fries

Blonde Ale Air Fryer Crispy French Fries

We have been playing around with our air fryer lately, trying to make foods that are bad for us a little healthier. It’s healthier in that it uses significantly less oil for cooking. We are still eating French fries, so I am aware of the portion control issue as I shovel these crispy bad boys into my mouth! Making beer fries was a no brainer, as it draws out the starch, making them more rigid and less likely to stick together,…

Blood Orange Ale Vinaigrette

Do you remember way back at the beginning of 2020 when I said that I would be back writing and creating recipes twice a month? Yeah, well, I didn’t exactly take into account that a pandemic would occur… I am not going to drone on about COVID-19, as it’s often all that we talk about now… But what I will drone on about is this blood orange ale vinaigrette! It’s perfect for all of your summer salads! It is so…

Chews and Brews is 5 Years Old!

Chews and Brews is 5 Years Old!

Five years ago today, Chews and Brews was born! This little food and drink blog has morphed from a random food blog with writings of what I was eating or drinking daily into a more specific blog where all recipes I post are using an Alberta craft beer in it! Since narrowing down my blog niche, I have written recipes using beers from over 20 Alberta craft beer breweries. On top of that, I have visited over 35 Alberta breweries.

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…

Grapefruit Beermosa

Grapefruit Beermosa

It has been above zero for a few days and I was feeling a little springy. The warmer air, especially after an asinine deep freeze of a week of minus 40, had me craving something light, refreshing and citrusy. The Grapefruit Beermosa did just all of that. Using beer to make a cocktail is something I have enjoyed playing around with, such as this Cherry Lime Beer-Aid.
