Last year, around this time, I brought you a recipe for “Beer Brinded Turkey” This year, I couldn’t help but think I was missing a piece of the puzzle, and then it occurred to me, “THAT TURKEY NEEDS GRAVY!”

Not only does the turkey need gravy, but it needs BEER GRAVY, specifically. The beer isn’t even the “best” part of this recipe, it’s also super simple to make too! What’s not to love? So, without further delay, let’s make some gravy (and put it on everything).



4 TBSP of butter

¼ cup AP flour

1 yellow onion minced

2 Garlic cloves minced

2 cups chicken/beef or turkey stock

2 cups of dark beer (porter, stout, or brown ale)

Salt and pepper to taste

How to make it:

In a saucepan over medium-high heat and melt the butter.

Once the butter is melted whisk in the flour, stirring constantly until smooth.

Add onion and garlic, cook until soft.

Next, add in the stock and the beer and then bring the mixture to a boil, whisking constantly until thickened. This should take about 5-6 minutes.

Remove the gravy from the heat and season with salt and pepper to taste.

And there you have it folks, a delicious and easy beer spiked gravy! I hope you enjoy this recipe and if you make it, please let us know in the comments!
