  • Recipe: Shandy Ice Pop

    Cooking with Beer, Recipes

    We go back and forth on shandies, the lemonade-spiked, official beer cocktail of summer. Done right it's a super refreshing way to make your pint a bit more session-able.  But done wrong (and we'll call any premixed bottled versions very wrong) and you've got a handful of lemonheads polluting your beer.

    When it came time for us to concoct our own shandy, we could think of no better way to combine the tartness of lemon, the essence of beer (in our case, the already citrus-packed Citrus Wheat), and the spirit of summer than in the form of a special adults-only ice pop.

    Plus it leaves one hand free for a pint.

  • Recipe: Ultimate Beer Burger

    Cooking with Beer, Recipes

    Simply-made or indulgently complicated, a good burger can come in a slew of mouth-watering iterations. But one thing's for sure: It's best served with a cold beer. We've taken our love for the classic combination of burgers and beer to the next level by stacking a stout-spiked patty with some of the most beer-filled and burger-ready recipes around including our Hop Mayo, Beer Bacon & Onion Jam, and Spent Grain Burger Bun.

  • Recipe: Peanut Butter Stout Cake

    Cooking with Beer, Recipes

    Peanut Butter Stout Cake

    Peanut butter — sweet, creamy peanut butter. Whether you're eating it in a classic PB&J, peanut butter cup, or right out of the jar with a spoon, there's no denying how amazing and versatile it is. Elvis switched things up by introducing America to the peanut butter and banana sandwich. We thought, why not make our very own smooth concoction? After all, we always have peanut butter on hand.

Enter Pitcher Beeritas, our latest creation in the world of alcoholic beverages. Refreshing and spicy, this delightful concoction will whisk you away in seconds to a sunny, tropical, beach-side meal with your best brunch buds.

  • Recipe: Sweet Potato Beer Hash

    Cooking with Beer, Recipes

    Beer-Soaked Sweet Potato Hash

    You’ve got your biscuits, you’ve got your bacon, but might we suggest a new brunch staple: sweet potatoes! A solid substitute for over-greased hash browns, this recipe is soaked in beer but still super healthy. Imagine the crispy, carb-y goodness of a baked sweet potato dipped in the refreshing, lightly hoppy taste of your favorite pale ale and you’ve got the Beer Soaked Potato Hash. It's a perfect (and vegan!) addition to any boozy brunch.

    This modern take on a diner breakfast staple is not only delicious, but good for your gut. Using sweet potatoes instead of regular golden potatoes, coconut oil instead of vegetable oil, and beer flavor sans-alcohol (it cooks off in the skillet), the simple mix of ingredients won’t have you wondering what’s on your plate before you dig in.

  • Recipe: Buttermilk Biscuits & Beer Gravy

    Cooking with Beer, Recipes

    Buttermilk Biscuits & Beer Gravy

    In a lot of places today, breakfast is a relatively light meal - some in our native Brooklyn have reduced it to coffee and a scowl - but that wasn't always the case. When farm hands had to spend all day out in the fields, toiling under the hot sun, breakfast had to be a huge, hearty meal. It was this need that birthed one of mankind's greatest culinary inventions: the biscuit with gravy.

    Inspired by the classic southern biscuit recipes we so adore, Brooklyn Brew Shop did what we do best and made a beer-based gravy to pair with it. The biscuits are the simple, flaky perfection you remember, but we cooked the juicy slices of sausage in a skillet with some smooth Oatmeal Stout to make our own delicious, beer-fueled gravy. If your brunch guests are anything like ours, this will be the dish fought over for seconds, thirds, and fourths.

  • Recipe: Plum & Ale Tart

    Cooking with Beer, Recipes

    Honestly, we're a bit hesitant when buying plums at the farmers market. Often they're fantastic to eat as soon as you get home. Mouthwateringly juicy and perfectly balanced between sweet and tart, a plum should be far from mealy with skin that's firm but not too firm. But sometimes a plum grown with the best intentions on a beautiful farm somewhere at least an hour from the city just doesn't taste that great no matter how many days you wait for it to ripen up.

  • Recipe: Hop Honey

    Cooking with Beer, Recipes

    Hop-infused honey

    Taking a cue from chili-infused hot honey and our overall beer-mindedness, we got to experimenting with our own honey infused with hops. Citrus-packed varietals (like CentennialCascade and Chinook) add a bright zing and light bitterness that rounds out the honey's super-sweetness.

    We've been slathering it on cornbread, savory waffles and used it in the sauce for a batch BBQ Beer Wings. With a 10 minute cook time (plus another 10 minutes for cooling) and so many hops to choose from, we foresee this being a cupboard staple for years to come.

  • Recipe: BBQ Beer Wings

    Cooking with Beer, Recipes

    Beer BBQ wings
    Drinking beer and eating wings has forever enjoyed its place in the hall of culinary marriages alongside the likes of peanut butter & jelly, fish & chips and bread & butter. Well, we've decided to take this love a step further by soaking our wings in beer–-the biggest beer-wing experience since the duo made their game day debut.

  • Recipe: Beer Cured Bacon

    Cooking with Beer, Recipes

    Beer Cured Bacon Recipe on The Mash from Brooklyn Brew Shop

    Beer. Cured. Bacon. Really... need we say more?

    This recipe is inspired from the barbecue icon Meathead Goldwyn. He has a method for bacon from scratch that allowed us to make the important addition of beer for more flavor. We used this bacon in our BBQ Bacon Beer, which was served at the recent Bacon and Beer Classic.

    For ease of scaling, ingredients are listed for 1 lb. If you are doing a larger slab (we regularly do 3-4 lbs) just multiply the rest of the ingredients for the size your butcher has in stock.

  • Recipe: Hoppy Deviled Eggs

    Cooking with Beer, Recipes

    Hoppy Deviled Eggs
    Deviled Eggs, when people remember their existence in the pantheon of appetizers, are the hero of any dinner party. Despite being part of the finger food group, they're perfectly filling — at least enough to keep the crowd happy until dinner time. They're also super easy to whip up. We like to put our usual spin on these sinful hors d'oeuvres with an Everyday IPA, adding a bright, citrusy kick on top of each creamy bite.

    We suggest pairing your Hoppy Deviled eggs with a bright IPA, as the beer will cut right through the creaminess of the egg. A microplaning of a hops adds a layer of floral aroma to the dish, making the eggs feel right at home with a citrus-packed IPA.

  • Recipe: Shrimp & Sausage Beer Gumbo

    Cooking with Beer, Recipes

    Shrimp and Sausage Beer Gumbo

    The heart of our gumbo is the slow-cooked, dark rue that requires a half hour of constant stirring (but the biceps workout will just build up your appetite!)

    Our take on the official state dish of Louisiana is teaming with shrimp and andouille sausage and gets it's rich beer-base from our Chestnut Brown Ale (although any malt-leaning brew works fine). Imparting its nutty and additional maltier notes, the beer works hand-in-hand with the smokey andouille sausage and our creamy roux base to give the gumbo a warm, hearty taste.

    Although we opted against adding okra, the gooey Louisianan gumbo staple can be added at your tastebuds' discretion.

  • Recipe: Beer Mac & Cheese Waffles

    Cooking with Beer, Recipes

    Waffles are fantastic. There's no question about it. And when they're savory (i.e. chicken and waffles), they're even better (in our opinion). So we asked ourselves a question. How does one make the ultimate savory waffle? The answer was clear and incidentally packed with cheese. We looked in The Mash archives, rediscovered our gooey, smoky, uber-easy, and super-cheesy Stovetop Beer Mac & Cheese and it came to us. Let's make waffles out of mac & cheese. We did, and the resulting waffles were insanely delicious.

  • Recipe: Lambic Float

    Cooking with Beer, Recipes

    Lindeman's Kriek Lambic Float
    Dessert time is dedicated to enjoying the sweeter things in life, and nothing says sweet like your classic diner float. Crowned with huge scoops of ice cream and your favorite soda, it's pretty unsurprising to see kids in movies lined up at the diner counter, jumping at the prospect of imbibing this sugar rush. Well, consider our lambic float the grown-up version of your favorite diner treat, hitting that perfect balance of "sweet-but-not-too-sweet." Simple and delicious, the lambic's sour bite helps temper the vanilla's sugar overload. The result? A mellow sweetness crowned with an airy dollop of float foam, perfect for ailing those childhood memories and cooling off during hot summer days.

  • Recipe: Stovetop Beer Mac and Cheese

    Cooking with Beer, Recipes

    Some dishes seem like they were invented just to be experimented with (re: add beer to) - and we think mac and cheese is the perfect blank canvas to get creative! When we developed our Beerchamel recipe, we knew the logical next step would be to prepare one of our favorite comfort foods with it.

    Instead of using powders or concentrates, or grating 10 blocks of cheese, using Beerchamel will cut your prep time in half and double the creaminess of your sauce. In addition to Beerchamel, you can add just about anything to make this mac your own - chiles, mushrooms, greens - really, just about anything.

  • Recipe: Beerchamel

    Cooking with Beer, Recipes

    One of the "mother" sauces of France and Italy, béchamel has been around for what seems like ages. Made from a roux of butter and flour mixed with milk, it's the base of several classic sauces - such as Mornay, a cheese sauce - and is used in a great variety of dishes like lasagna, gratins, soufflés, and one of our favorites, mac and cheese! Our take, aptly titled Beerchamel, adds flavor complexity to the sauce and makes the perfect addition to your favorite comfort foods, whether hoppy, nutty or slightly sweet. It's the key to making your mac super smooth and creamy!

  • Best of 2014: Cooking with Beer

    Cooking with Beer

    We don't just like making and drinking beer - we love cooking with it too! When added to your favorite appetizers, entrees, and even desserts, beer adds a whole new level of flavor and complexity to standby recipes. It can also inspire you to try something new - like swapping wine for beer in mussels, taking a hoppy approach to cocktails or adding some stout our porter to homemade ice cream.

    We have way more fun cooking with beer when we also have a beer in hand, so pick up a few bottles and try your hand at our five favorite beer-infused recipes from the past year:

  • Recipe: Hard Cider Pudding

    Cooking with Beer, Recipes

    Beer-filled desserts are a staple at Brooklyn Brew Shop (see Peanut Butter Porter Ice Cream Cake, Spent Grain Spent Grain Macarons and more for examples). We love the complexity that beer lends to crust, chocolate and any sort of sweet. Since we debuted our new Hard Cider Kit this fall, we began experimenting with hard cider in the kitchen, too! Pudding seemed like a great place to start, and this version is spectacular (and simple). It's thick and velvety with butterscotch and apple notes - irresistible to stray spoons on the counter.
