Beer is one of those things you either really love, or really hate. If you happen to love beer, like many of us, there’s a good chance you enjoy craft beer, light beer, dark beer and trying new brews. Beer pairs so well with a variety of foods, but I would say the best pairing is a hearty home made burger with an ice cold beer on a hot day. While you may be finding many ways to incorporate beer into your mealtime, you may not have considered actually cooking and baking with beer. It adds fantastic flavor to certain dishes and can produce some of the best comfort foods around. Cheers!
