bourbon barrel ale

Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale Barbacoa

This recipe produces a delicious type of shredded beef you can use for tacos, nachos, sliders, and more. The sweet, smoky flavor of the aged stout lends itself well to being used as a meat marinade, while the long cook time ensures all the flavors blend into something delicious.

Ingredients:

  • 2 to 2 1/2 pounds chuck roast
  • 1 12-ounce bottle of Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 6 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 1-4 chipotle peppers in adobo
  • 2 Tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 Tablespoon cumin
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt & pepper
  • Bay leaf

Procedure:

  • Combine the onion, garlic, chipotle, lime juice, cumin, chili powder, oregano, salt, and pepper in a food processor until it’s a grainy paste. Add a bit of adobo sauce to give it a creamier texture (reserve some adobo for later).
  • Gently coat the chuck roast with the mixture.
  • Put the roast in a slow cooker, and slowly pour the beer in. Take care not to wash the spice mixture off. Add the bay leaf.
  • Cook on low, 8-10 hours. Shred the meat with two forks, and return to the slow cooker with more adobo sauce to keep warm until needed.

Goose Island IPA green

Goose Island IPA Spicy Cheese Dip

Though this beer-infused dip is traditionally made with jalapeño, use any pepper you like: habanero, Fresno, even ghost pepper! And though this recipe usually calls for cheddar, you can use Monterey, Colby, or similar well-melting cheese.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 2 Tablespoons flour
  • 2 Tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup Goose Island IPA
  • 2 cups shredded cheese
  • 1-2 hot peppers, minced

Procedure:

  • In a saucepan, melt the butter over high heat. Whisk in the flour and cornstarch, cook until slightly brown. 
  • Carefully add in the milk and Goose Island IPA. Bring to a low boil. 
  • In stages, slowly whisk in the shredded cheese. Let the cheese melt before adding more. 
  • Fold in the minced pepper. Keep warm until ready to serve.
