Bam! Beer Basil Chicken


Hop Heads and Hot Heads unite with this dish! It’s light, spicy, and wildly complex. It can be served solo as an appetizer or can be paired with rice and veggies for an exotic summer cuisine. The beer marinade gives this dish an incredibly rich dimension of flavor and also keeps the chicken nice and juicy. Once you taste this, you’ll think twice about paying for that thai food takeout….Click Continue Reading for Full Post

Sweet Auntie Anne Goes Eurotrash


Most of us have indulged in those decadent little cinnamon and sugar bombs from Auntie Anne’s Pretzels. It’s hard to go to the mall and not give into the temptation of buying  one…or four. It lures in the unsuspecting mall patrons with its hypnotic aroma- anyone and everyone in the vicinity is completely doomed for. We feel that way about Southern Tier too. Every time we come across one of their beers, we must try it. Consistently, they have brewed some of the most flavorful and delicious beers on the market today. We stumbled across their Eurotrash Pilz a couple of weeks ago, and knew that it had to be our next project. I mean, how could we pass up a beer with a name like that? Once we took a sip, it turned out to be everything we hoped to find in a great pilsner. It is so drinkable and balanced, it would be a complete disservice to beer cooks everywhere not to showcase it in a dish. We knew the marriage between a copycat recipe of an Amish lady’s pretzels and Eurotrash Pilz would be beyond epic. And it so was…Click Continue Reading for Full Post

Cast Iron Stout Brownies


Growing up, we had an unforgettable sign hanging in the kitchen- “Life is uncertain, eat dessert first”. With this featured dessert, you may find this suggestion a little hard to resist. We developed a cast iron stout brownie that is sure to please anyone and everyone who has the blessed opportunity to try it. We were inspired by all of those tasty Guiness Brownies that we indulge in every St. Patrick’s Day. They are super good, but it is time for a remix. This year, we highlighted one of our absolute favorite stouts- Secret Stache Stout by Finch’s Beer Co. Their Secret Stache Stout is loaded with chocolate malts-which makes it a perfect complement for all that rich, chocolaty brownie goodness. The best thing- serve it warm, right out of your cast iron skillet for a fudgy, gooey, and completely satisfying dessert. And guess what, these stout brownies pair perfectly with the rest of your Secret Stache Stout. Whether you are starting or ending your meal with this, you’ll be one happy camper. “Here’s to a long life and a merry one. A quick death and an easy one. A pretty girl and an honest one. A cold beer and another one!”- Irish Toast…Click Continue Reading for Full Post

Eat Your Whiskey


We enjoyed tasting all of Wigle’s spirits and bitters so much that we decided to come up with three decadent desserts that highlight some of our favorite Wigle Products. Starting off with the Whiskey Cream Cheese Pound Cake which was inspired by Wigle’s “Old Fashioned” cocktail. We took an old fashioned cream cheese pound cake recipe from Southern Living, 1990 and boozed it up with a fantastic Rye Whiskey from Wigle. Every pound cake needs a sweet drizzle over the top- and we couldn’t think of a better topping than a boozy caramel sauce. To end this dessert spread, we wanted to highlight the delicious and complex flavors from their Rosemary Lavender Bitters…. Click Continue Reading for Full Post

Pittsburgh Cubano: A Sammich Powerful Enough to Mend 54 Years


In light of the discussion of America and Cuba reexamining their relationship, we decided to speed up the process and share our Pittsburgh Cubano Sammich– a sammich sure to spark resolution once eaten. This sammich highlights the best from both countries-Full Pint Beer and the delectable Cubano Sandwich. The marriage of the two will make all of us forget why we were feuding in the first place. Wishful thinking, I know. But it isn’t that far off base- many epic tiffs have been resolved over some great food and beer. With this sammich, it’s both food and beer! It’s made with four different Full Pint Beers: Little Brown Ale Mustard, Spicy Hobnobber Pickles, 3-2-1 Win Buns, and Mojo Pork Tenderloin with Paw Paw Berliner Weisse. One bite may help each side remember how prolific (and delicious) our unification could be…Click Continue Reading for Full Post

Mojo Pork Tenderloin with Berliner Weisse Beer


Traditional Cuban sammiches are served with a pork cooked in a Mojo sauce; the signature marinade of Cuba. Typically, it consists of garlic, citrus, and spices. Authentic Mojo recipes call for the use of sour orange juice. Hmm, as appetizing as that sounds, we are skipping out on the sour o.j and going with one of our favorite sour beers-Full Pint’s Paw Paw Berliner Weisse. A Berliner Weisse is a sour, wheat beer of around 3-4% ABV. We couldn’t wait to incorporate this beer into a recipe. Ironically enough, we were at Full Pint Brewery interviewing one of the brewers while they were tasting the Paw Paw Berliner Weisse wort to see if it reached the proper sour profile. We watched them make the executive decision to go on with the next brewing step. We are so glad they did, the beer is perfectly sour in all the right ways. Just the right brew to sip on and incorporate into this fine Cubano dish…Click Continue Reading for Full Post

Spicy Beer Pickles


When we think about Cuban food, rich flavors and spices comes to mind. During recipe development, it seemed only natural to combine Pittsburgh’s beloved pickle with some Cuban heat. This isn’t the first time Pittsburgh and Cuba have been unified, however. Pittsburgh and Matanzas (Cuba) are Sister Cities!  A Sister City is formed to foster friendships and understanding between the two cultures and promote peace, acceptance, and reconciliation. Matanzas is also known as the “City of Bridges” with 17 bridges that cross over 3 rivers- Rio Yumuri, San Juan, and Canimar. Sounds a whole lot like home, but 1,204 miles away. Interesting, eh? Well, Pittsburgh is lucky that Full Pint Brewery has an excellent IPA that just so happens to lend itself well to spicy foods. Please enjoy our interpretation of Pittsburgh Pickles, Cuba, and Beer with our Spicy Hobnobber Pickles…Click Continue Reading for Full Post

Brown Ale Mustard


Mustard. A superb condiment for those classic foods that pair all too perfectly with good brews like brats, pretzels, and good ol’ deli sammiches. Since mustard and beer go together like rush ahr and jagoffs, we figured why not put them together for an outstanding condiment experience. Plus, mustard seeds are notoriously hard to grind if they aren’t soaked. Well we couldn’t think of anything better to soak these little buggers in than one of our favorite beers from Full Pint Brewery. Their Little Brown Ale perfectly complements the spiciness and sweetness of this homemade mustard. Plus, you’ll be doing a good deed for the day- when you buy Little Brown Ale, some proceeds go to bat conservation groups. So go fourth and make some awesome mustard! Your friends and family (and the bats) will be so pleased that you did…Click Continue Reading for Full Post

Cuban Beer Bun Sliders


Cuban bread is sweet, hardy, and hard to come by in Pittsburgh. So we thought- why not make our own….with beer. Traditional Cuban bread comes in the form of a large loaf. But we want to shake things up around here and make a Cuban Slider. Full Pint Brewery has an awesome Pilsner called 3-2-1 Win! that works perfectly in these tasty little buns…Click Continue Reading for Full Post
