NBWA Offers Recipes and Tips for Cooking with Beer
Enjoying a cold glass of your favorite brew isn’t the only way to experience the wide variety of flavors of beer. With more than 13,000 labels of beer available across the United States, beer also can be used as a cooking ingredient to add a distinctive flair to many of your favorite recipes. NBWA offers a variety of collaterals for you to share – from tips on the varieties of beer available and how they can complement the food you serve, to recipes that are sure to please the pickiest palate!
Beer can be an exciting secret ingredient in many recipes from salad dressings and bread, to pork chops and fajitas, to brownies and cobblers. You’ll find some of these recipes in NBWA’s “Everyday Dining with Beer” brochure. NBWA’s cookbook, “Cheers! Brewing up a Great Meal with Beer,” includes recipes that feature beer as a key ingredient to delicious dishes. Recipe cards featuring many of the great meals listed in the cookbook and brochure are also available for your convenience when shopping for ingredients.
Need help deciphering between the different types of beer before you begin a recipe? NBWA has compiled a list of terms often used within the beer industry. This list explains the varying flavors and styles that you will come across when searching for new and exciting brews.
From lambics and lagers to porters and stouts, there is a style and flavor for every beer drinker and occasion. Today’s diverse selection of beer is due in large part to the effectiveness of the independent three-tier distribution system. As part of this system, brewers, distributors and retailers work hard to provide a tremendous variety of beer brands and styles to consumers. An innovative brew master perfects his or her latest recipe; a distributor delivers those brews safely to retailers in local communities; and retailers offer consumers enormous selection.
