We all love our mushroom, chicken, and tomato soups, but how about trying something different with beer? Try this creamy white cheddar and pale ale soup, topped with fried onions and bacon for added crunch and texture. Sprinkle some herbs and pepper from the top and you are good to go. Grab a toast if you need an accompaniment.

Savoury Beer Waffles

There’s possibly nobody on earth who doesn’t like their waffles for breakfast, let it be sweet or savoury. But here, we bring you a savoury version with a subtle twist and touch of pale ale, which you can incorporate into your buttermilk batter. Skip garnishing the waffles with ice cream and fresh fruits and instead, go for bacon and maple syrup. With a breakfast like this, you’ll want to jump out of bed in the morning.

Beer Battered Fried Chicken

Beer Battered Fried Chicken

Just knowing the words “fried chicken” in beer batter are enough to get your mouth watering, especially when we are talking about binge eating while watching our favourite show on Netflix. Marinate the chicken pieces in beer, olive oil, pepper, herbs, red chilli flakes, garlic, and some lime juice for an hour or two, and leave it for frying on full flame after giving it a coat of bread crumbs. Serve it with a side of mayonnaise dip or hot and chilli sauce.

Beer Cheese on Toast

Beer and cheese – we bet you won’t find a better combination than this. These two together allow you to give your toast a different take altogether – a serious punch of the brew and a creamy spread of melting cheese oozing over from the edges. Combine beer, egg, butter, chillies, spring onion, and breadcrumbs in a pan, dip the bread into the batter, place a slice of cheese once the bread is semi-toasted, and continue to grill until the cheese melts completely and turns golden.

Beer Dip and Sauce

Beer being a versatile spirit, it can be used for a variety of reasons, including dips and sauces. In fact, beer cheese dips are commonly served with all kinds of chips, from potato to corn, and fries to garlic bread. Even the slightest amount of beer can add that desired kick to the dip. Try it out.

Beer is a lesser-explored yet great ingredient to use when making certain recipes. It adds and balances flavours, and gives dishes an unexpected depth!
