It’s obvious that we love drinking beer, but what about cooking with it? Be the star of your next pot luck-style meal by bringing a beer-infused dish. Here are just a few recipes (and beer recommendations) to get you started.

Stout Recipes


According to The Beeroness, “Beer and cookies are vastly superior to milk and cookies. No exceptions.” This recipe takes just two tablespoons of your favorite stout, but the flavor should last all day. Try Empyrean’s Peanut Butter Porter if you think you’re ready for a bit more flavor.

Stouts to try in your recipe:

Badger Hill Foundation Stout

badger-hill-foundation-stoutTaking cues from old English and Irish Stouts, two brothers from the Land of 10,000 Lakes landed on their own perfect brew. The reveal? A sweet, malty roast that hints of coffee, caramel and chocolate—and finishes off clean with touches of American hops. In other words: not too schmaltzy, not too bitter. Like you’d expect from a couple of nice, well-balanced Minnesota guys.

Lift Bridge The Warden Milk Stout

lift-bridge-wardenLift Bridge’s Warden Milk Stout clocks in at 5.75% ABV and pours a deep black with a thin, whitish-tan head that quickly dissipates. Aromas of coffee with hints of smoke greet the nose, and the beer’s flavors include a complimentary combination of sweet and savory in the forms of chocolate and roasted malt. At 23 IBU, there’s a trace of earthy hop bitterness on the backend. The mouthfeel is silky smooth and the unfermentable sugar from the lactose leaves the sweetness on the palate that you’d expect from a milk stout.

oskar-blues-ten-fidyBeer Description: Ten FIDY Imperial Stout – This titanic, immensely viscous stout is loaded with inimitable flavors of chocolate-covered caramel and coffee and hide a hefty 65 IBUs underneath the smooth blanket of malt. Ten FIDY (10.5% ABV) is made with enormous amounts of two-row malt, chocolate malt, roasted barley, flaked oats and hops. Ten FIDY is the ultimate celebration of dark malts and boundary-stretching beer.

Stone Coffee Milk Stout

stone-coffee-milk-stoutBeer Description: We’ve discovered through delicious experimentation the delectably roasty character that comes from adding coffee beans to just about any beer style. For this traditional yet worldly stout, the mild bitterness of the roasted coffee is balanced out brilliantly by milk sugar, adding a touch of sweetness and creaminess. Cheers to the artful coalescence of two highly artisanal mediums.
