I do not enjoy carving pumpkins. As you can see from the above Jack-o-lantern, my artistic skills are quite limited, and I usually get very bored halfway through. I do, however, enjoy roasting pumpkin seeds, and then eating pumpkin seeds, while everyone else is still carving bulbous squashes. I believe my activity is…
Beer. People like drinking it.
When we think about pairing alcohol with our food, the first thing that comes to mind is typically wine. While a nice wine pairing is great, you can also pair your food with beer.
I was never cool(?) enough to be invited to a “kegger” in college, but I did drink a lot of beer, and I hosted a few parties. Because each attendee would often bring a case of whatever cheap lager they favored, I would often find my many bottles and cans of beer I didn’t really want to drink strewn across my apartment…
We’ve shown you how to open a beer bottle with a knife, a spoon, a lighter, a stapler, a newspaper, a Mac power brick, a countertop, a frisbee, and your arm. Now a video on Reddit shows you how to open a beer bottle with a beer bottle—or, if you’re clever, with just a bottle cap.
On a recent summer Sunday, I was drinking a Modelo with my friend Meghan at a bar and lamenting that it wasn’t a michelada. I’d tried to order one, but the bartender told me they didn’t have them, and while the cold can of beer was refreshing, I wanted it spiked with spices, hot sauce and lime.
We here at Skillet are huge fans of cooking with beer, especially the cheaper stuff, which is why I was thrilled to find that Chef Aaron Sanchez (aka the chillest Chopped judge) uses light beer heavily in his summer cooking. Chef Sanchez is also “all about making life easier,” and was kind enough to share some summery…
I think I speak for all Americans (except Mike Pence) when I say: what the heck is the point of non-alcoholic beer? But it turns out to be popular in Europe as a sports drink. Which, to be fair, is no weirder than the way a lot of athletes here swear by chocolate milk.
Cheap beer gets a bad rap, but I’ve been choosing it over the fancy stuff more and more these days. Unlike heavy IPAs, generic lagers don’t compete with food or give me a hangover, and they’re an absolute joy to cook with.
Sometimes the best way to celebrate the holidays is with a beer and some delicious Chinese food. but, what beer should you have with which dish?
Many people love knocking back a few hop-tastic brews like Indian Pale Ales after a long week, but not supertasters. In fact, they can barely stand the taste of beer at all. If that sounds familiar, you might be a supertaster yourself.
When some people go on vacation they bring back magnets or postcards. I bring back booze. For a long time I was just bringing back beer to give as gifts or share with friends, but that eventually evolved to spirits as well. When I went to Scotland earlier this year my home whisky collection ended up getting a huge…
Beer, just like most other food and drink products has a shelf life, as well as proper and improper way to store it. Where and how you choose to store your beer can make a huge difference in what it tastes like when you finally do crack that bottle or can open.
I like a wide variety of beers, but if you open up my fridge you’ll mostly find those cold activated cans of Coors Light. Why? Because it’s just fine. That’s right, I said it.
In order to be classified as a “craft beer,” The Brewer’s Association requires the brewery making it to be small, independent, and traditional. That means that while some breweries owned by companies like Anheuser-Busch might call themselves “craft” they aren’t. If you don’t pay close attention, it can be hard to tell…
A few years ago I decided to get certified as a Cicerone, the beer version of a sommelier. During my studies for the title, I learned what constitutes a “Beer Clean” glass. It’s honestly something I’d never thought of before. A clean glass is a clean glass, right? Wrong.
If you’re meticulously pouring that bottled beer out into a glass slowly so you don’t get any head, you’re doing it wrong.
The only thing more divine than floating around in a pool on a hot summer’s day is floating around in a pool with a refreshing beverage, but once you’re settled in your doughnut shaped floatie, the last thing you want to do is get out to refresh your beverage. Luckily, The Kitchn has a cheap and easy solution for this…
There’s something uniquely summery about mixing up a beer cocktail. Pairing fizzy beer with something harder not only results in a larger-than-average drink that you can keep sip on for a spell, but a bit of extra booze will get you buzzed before you get bloated.
Happy weekend, and welcome back to 3-Ingredient Happy Hour, the weekly drink column featuring super simple yet delicious libations. This week we’re making a drink that’s perfect for sipping while lazily float around in a body of water: the shandy.
