    Cooking With Beer: Gingerbread Ale & Butternut Squash Soup

    I love to cook with beer. In my opinion, any recipe that calls for water, stock or broth can easily be replaced with beer. I love to steam rice and couscous in beer. It adds so much flavor. Whenever I come across a spiced beer, fruit beer or specialty beer — the wheels in my [...]

    This recipe is short of brilliant. Promise me. At first, I had no intention of cooking with beer tonight.

Every spring, summer, and autumn my family and I would spend many days hiking at Minnewaska State Park in the “Gunks”. We would reward ourselves with several cold beers at the bottom of the mountain in the town of [...]

    NRA Chicago – Day Three

    Although the two previous days in Chicago were spectacular, from the perspective of The Beer Wench – the third evening was “la piece de resistance.” (For those of you who did not grow up spewing out French sayings, I’ve attached the definition …) pièce de ré·sis·tance n. pl. 1. An outstanding accomplishment: “The bison is [...]
