  3. Beer Battered Fish

    Beer Battered Fish

    Who said fish-fry? What? You didn’t say “anything”? Yeah, okay, whatever; you can’t just blame “EVERYTHING” on the voices in my head! Heh. Heh. Heh. Why were we here again? OH YEAH, FRIED FISH! Not just any fried fish either! Beer battered; fried fish is more like it! Not only is that “time of year” in the States, but May-September actually marks the “blue water” fishing season in Australia, too! I don’t know about you, but that’s enough justifiable excuses for me. So, without further delay,

  4. Hefeweiss Banana Beer Bread Recipe

    Hefeweiss Banana Beer Bread Recipe

    I don’t know about you, but one of my favorite types of bread, especially for breakfast, is banana bread. It just so happens that my favorite banana bread recipe is a lot like my favorite “normal” bread recipe, in that they both contain beer. I know, I know, you’re shocked, right?... Stop! That question was rhetorical. All joking aside if you like to brew and drink Hefeweizens, but you also enjoy warm and delicious banana bread… Say no more, as the kids say, “I got you, fam”.

    Besides tasting freaking amazing, this recipe is in keeping with my usual theme of “waste not” or at least waste, “less”. Got the trub-y cloudy bits leftover from a wheat beer brew? No problem. Got smooshed, bruised bananas? They are beautiful just like you, let’s use them up! Honey and or maple syrup hiding in your cupboard? Not for long!

    Don’t have any left-over Beer after bottling? That’s okay too! You can use a beer that is already bottled or even commercially produced beer, but what IS important, is that you use a beer specifically made with a “wheat style” yeast.

    This plays a big role in the flavor of your finished banana bread. Unfiltered, bottle-conditioned wheat beers are especially great, because the little bit of activity from the yeast in the beer, will help give it a lovely texture… But this is not completely essential to use a beer that contains live yeast cells. It’s just extra nice if you can, just don’t let a lack of access to that, stop you from making

    Bottom of the Barrel Oktoberfest Pretzel Bites & Beer Cheese Dip

    Oh Autumn, how we love the signals of your arrival. Changing leaves, cooler temperatures, aromas of cinnamon and spice dancing in the air. Those are just some of the lovely things about fall, but here at Mr. Beer, a couple of other things come to mind. The Fall season brings us the most beer-centric holiday that many of us celebrate all around the world, reaching far beyond its original cultural borders!
