Beer and cooking

Posted by ebrius on October 16, 2008

Last night I was chatting with one of my roommates, and the topic of beer batter came up, (mainly because he was eating beer battered fish) and he was surprised that I had never made a beer batter before. I mean, it makes sense, I love beer, and I love to cook as well, so why not combine the two. I have often thought about what foods to put into my beers, and what foods beers would pair well with, but I have never really though about cooking with beer.

So this morning I decided to do a basic Google search on ‘beer batter’, and after digging a little deeper, I discovered the many different recipes and styles I could explore. I’ve done beer-in-the-butt chicken before, but I have always used a lighter beer, why not try something heavy and sweet, like the stout I have sitting in my closet? I’m sure it would go great in a stew, or even in a loaf of bread.

So I think I’m going to start focusing on cooking with my beer more then actually drinking it, since of course, the beer usually tastes the same each time you drink it, but who knows what it will taste like each time you cook with it.

Edit: You’ll also notice that I have created a new category, ‘cooking’. Any interesting recipes or insights I develop will be posted there
