  • Recipe: Beer, Bacon & Onion Jam

    Cooking with Beer - May 28, 2014

    Bacon's easily the star of any breakfast plate or burger-top. It's almost indescribable how delicious it can be. Typically best served at the very moment it's cool enough to pick up and eat for a super crunchy surge of umami, it's understandable to not get too adventurous with your bacon-eating habits. But imagine a spreadable, picnic-ready jam made with loads of bacon, beer, brown sugar, caramelized onions and a few other simple ingredients, and you have our Beer, Bacon & Onion Jam. And with this recipe, you may never look at a cheese plate or any meal in need of condiments the same way again.

  • 2 O'Clock Tasting: Dogfish Head's Minutes

    2 O'Clock Tastings - May 27, 2014

    It is an understatement to say that Dogfish Head is an interesting brewery. They're one of the largest craft brewers in America but yet there may be no brewery today that exhibits such a dedication to experimentation and boundary pushing.

  • Hop of the Month: Liberty

    Hop of the Month, Brew School - May 21, 2014

    We’ve covered a number of German hops recently. Originating in America, this month’s hop, Liberty, is a close cousin to many of those famed hops. This shared German and American heritage gives the hop great versatility; you can find Liberty hops in a wide variety of beers, most commonly in lagers.

    Deriving from the German noble hop Hallertau, Liberty’s mild floral and spicy characteristics and overall clean flavor make them an ideal choice for German-style beers. Because of its parentage, Liberty shares many characteristics with the noble hops. Relatively low in alpha acids, the hop is mostly used for aroma. Contrary to what many assume, Liberty hops are not present in Anchor Steam’s famed Liberty Ale.

  • 2 O'Clock Tasting: Half Acre Beer Company

    2 O'Clock Tastings - May 20, 2014

    On a recent trip to Chicago, we hopped around town to a number of breweries to sample the local craft beer scene. One of our favorites was Half Acre Brewing Company. Started in 2006 by utilizing a contract brewer in Wisconsin, Half Acre has now grown into one of Chicagoland’s favorite local breweries. Since 2009, they have been operating out of their current facility in Chicago’s North Center neighborhood, along with a storefront for bottles, cans and growlers-to-go, as well as a taproom, which opened in 2012. Half Acre has been on the forefront of the recent, local craft beer boom in Chicago, paving the way for dozens of others. In 2010, they became the first Chicago brewery to can their beer.

  • Beer Cocktail Recipe: The Hop Collins

    Cooking with Beer - May 19, 2014

    The Tom Collins is a classic cocktail. The basic recipe is as standard as its signature, slender glass. Typically it will consist of gin, lemon, simple syrup, and soda water with a maraschino cherry and lemon twist on top.

    For our latest beer cocktail creation, we reinvented this fizzy mainstay with a hoppy IPA for an aromatic, complex, and visually fun cocktail. We swap out the soda water with our Everyday IPA (or another fragrant hop-forward IPA) and use old Tom gin, whose mild sweetness helps balance the beer's bitterness. In lieu of the lemon and cherry, we use a fresh raspberry for a garnish with the perfect sweet/tart balance. Stir and serve or let your guests combine the drink table-side.  Read More...

  • 2 O'Clock Tasting: Brasserie Dupont

    2 O'Clock Tastings - May 14, 2014

    It's nearly impossible to talk about saisons without ending the sentence with "Dupont." And because we love Belgian-style beers, we picked up some Brasserie Dupont brews to remind ourselves of how good these beers can be.

    Brasserie Dupont is located in French-speaking region of Wallonia in Belgium, not far from the French border, in the town of Tourpes. There has been brewing on the site continuously since 1844. After the DuPont family bought the brewery in 1920, brewer Louis Dupont established the tradition of re-fermenting all of the breweries offerings in bottles. Brewer and 4th generation Dupont family member Olivier Dedeycker took over in the 1990s. He has preserved its historic brewing traditions while upping production to more than 18,000 hectolitres. (Or 15,000 barrels, for you Americans.)

    We tried the legendary Saison Dupont alongside three of the brewery's other offerings. Belgian beer-lovers, rejoice!

  • Recipe: Spent Grain Burger Buns

    Spent Grain Chef - May 12, 2014

    The perfect bun is the foundation for an amazing burger. Firm enough to hold everything in one place--meat, condiments, sauce--but soft enough to give when you bite into it. Beyond the basics, what we love about our burger bun is that it's made with spent grain, which means the ideal pairing of beer and burgers just became an even better match.

  • 2 O'Clock Tasting: Goose Island's Four Sisters

    2 O'Clock Tastings - May 6, 2014

    It's quickly apparent on any visit to Chicago that you've arrived in a Goose Island town. And while Honker Ale and the super-citrusy 312 might be on almost every tap in the city, they're only a small part of their quickly evolving (and often slowly aging) line of increasingly complex beers. We've touched on Goose Island before (see our first Goose Island 2 O'Clock Tasting), but today we're unpacking our new Beer Tasting Set and filling its glasses with the brewery's four "Sisters."

  • Recipe: Curry Beer Mussels

    Cooking with Beer - May 5, 2014

    We absolutely love sitting down to a bowl of mussels, and we personally think they're best with beer. A staple in many a beer-loving Belgian bistro, Moules à la bière is the gold standard for almost any beer-fueled dinner. The brininess of the mussels combined with the crisp hop and gentle malt character of a light, dry beer creates an elegant dish that feels so much more complicated than simply scrubbing some shells and boiling them in beer with a few choice ingredients.

    And since we're always fans of a little heat, we made ours as a curry that's incredibly fresh, full of citrus and spice, and with a broth that's destined to be soaked up by the crustiest of baguettes. This recipe does an amazing job of highlighting our Grapefruit Honey Ale, whose intensely aromatic grapefruit character accentuates the lime and cilantro of the broth while its bitterness helps balance the sweetness of the coconut milk.

  • Weekend Beer Events 5/3

    Beer Events - May 2, 2014

    Beer may be the furthest thing from your mind this weekend, what with Cinco de Mayo and Derby Day doling out the tequila and bourbon. Not that we don't enjoy both libations, but we can always find a good reason to drink a beer. And if goats, neon clothing, and art projects aren't reason enough to grab a beer this weekend, we don't know how else to convince you.

    If you're hoping to avoid the large number of sombrero and large-hat-wearing drinkers this weekend, check out some fun beer events going on this weekend. (Well, we hope you wear a sombrero while at Cinco de Micro brewfest.) And don't forget, New Yorkers, to sign up for our Beer Making Class next month!
