English Mild Beer Bread

English Mild Beer Bread

A beer bread is an easier type of bread to make where you don’t have to knead it or let it rise. It comes out a bit more cake-like, but also tasty and …bready! The English Mild Beer Bread took me literally 10 mins to make and then an hour in the oven. The beer has yeast in it that helps the bread rise, which is why you don’t need to add any! Science! Pretty neat!

Pale Ale Beer Pickles

Pale Ale Beer Pickles

In the USA it is almost Thanksgiving, and who doesn’t love pickles on the Thanksgiving dinner table? Actually, pickles are good anytime of the year, in my opinion, especially these pale ale beer pickles.  Adding beer to the pickle brine gives it a tang and hoppyness, yet allows the salty, garlicky flavours to still shine through.  If you are looking for other Thanksgiving ideas, how about trying a beer brined turkey!? It would be the perfect way to present your…

If you know me, you know I like to make simple dishes while using craft beer.  One of the most simple ways that I have found to incorporate beer into a recipe is to use it to make a sauce.  I made this stout beer cherry sauce using an Alberta porter beer from Theoretically Brewing, and used it to glaze a grilled pork loin.  And you guys, it was so good! So good and so easy!! The recipe below is…

Honey Jalapeno Strong Beer Chicken

Honey Jalapeno Strong Beer Chicken

One of the easiest ways to incorporate beer into a recipe is to use it as part of a marinade for meat. You can add some of your own favourite ingredients to a beer to make the perfect marinade for chicken, beef, pork or seafood. For this honey jalapeno strong beer chicken I used a strong beer from Delirium as my marinade base and added in jalapenos, onion and garlic, honey, vinegar, salt, soy sauce and olive oil. For added…

Pilsner Beer Biscuits

Pilsner beer is the world’s most popular style of beer, invented in the Czech Bohemia, by Josef Groll in 1842, at the Pilsner Urquell brewery. They haven’t changed their recipe since; however, other versions from Germany, USA and other countries have developed. Enter the Four Star Pils, a Pilsner beer from Goose Island Brewing. This pilsner takes a blend of German and American hops to create their own pilsner style of beer that is crisp, refreshing, tastes of buttery biscuits…

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…

Grilled Acorn Squash with Tomato Curry Chutney

Grilled Acorn Squash with Tomato Curry Chutney

We grill and cook outdoors a lot in the summer. When I made this recipe, it was stinking hot out and there was no way any of this was happening inside my hot house. The squash was done on the grill and chutney done on the Coleman stove; this whole grilled acorn squash with tomato curry chutney was done completely outdoors! You don’t have to do it that way, but there is something tasty about cooking outside. Bring this recipe camping…

Whole Wheat Hot Cross Buns with Dried Berries

Whole Wheat Hot Cross Buns with Dried Berries

First off I have to admit I have never had a hot cross bun before, and I am not sure why?! They are bready, and I like bready things; and they also have a lot of flavour with all the spices added, and I love spice! So since it’s Easter, I have been seeing a lot of hot cross bun recipes floating around the web, and as I checked them out, I realized I needed to make them! I changed…
