10 Buzzy Ways to Eat (and Drink) Your Beer

March 28, 2014

Beer is the everyman's drink. We love our sangria and our whiskey sours, but when we're really honest with ourselves, a cold, frosty-bottled beer can hit the spot like nothing else. In honor of our newest collection on our online shop Provisions, we're celebrating beer in all of its forms. 

Don't sell your brewskies short. When it comes to the main event, beer can do much more than quench your thirst or provide some social lubrication. From hoppy IPA's to smooth, creamy stouts, beer is just begging to make its way from your pint glass into your main course. Pick up a nice six-packpop open a bottle, and let beer surprise you in the kitchen. If you get peckish, these beer and pretzel caramels and whole-grain pilsner crackers are here to tide you over.

I also love adding beer to slow cooked meats. My Beer and Chilli Ribs are simply to die for - I "blame" it on the beer.

Danish ollebrod/ beer and bread porridge. Like Indian pudding only better and easier, not to mention a great way to use leftovers. Here is a slow cooked version:
and here is a quick microwave one:

I put beer in my chili and in my chipotle goat stew. My mother used to use it for pot roast.
