Stout Beer Cherry Sauce

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…

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,…

Cherry Lime Beer-Aid

Cherry Lime Beer-Aid

It is like a lime-aid with vodka and beer! Super simple to make, especially if you already have some simple syrup handy,…

I am very excited for this post, as it is my first recipe using a beer from a brewery that I actually visited! These pub snacks beer cookie squares are made with Folding Mountain Brewing’s Parkway Porter!

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…
