Hearty Guinness BBQ Brisket Stew

Hearty Guinness BBQ Brisket Stew There’s nothing like a Guinness stew on a cold day. Unfortunately a traditional Guinness stew can take a bit of time, which I rarely have on weeknights, especially after battling traffic in snow during rush hour. With this recipe in less than 30 minutes, you’ll have a delicious stew that will warm you up inside and out!

Bacon & Beer Smoked Mussels

Bacon & Beer Smoked Mussels The only things that can make mussels better are beer, bacon, and smoke. Isn't it nice when it all comes together for you in one big bowl of smoky, spicy flavors? I love eating mussels for dinner during the week because it's packed with protein and comes together so quickly. The new smoked mussels from Pig of the Month make it even easier for you because they eliminate the need for soaking and cleaning the little guys!

Guinness Floats

Guinness Floats There’s nothing more Irish than Guinness is there? At least that is what my friends who love Guinness will tell me over and over again on St. Patrick’s Day, just like they do every year! This year, instead of just pouring pints of Guinness like I always do, I decided to make the drink a little more special… Who can resist a frothy, rich, and creamy Guinness float?

What to Eat Before Drinking All Night on St. Patrick's Day

Guinness Floats

We're kind of obsessed with St. Patrick's Day this year. From Guinness Floats to Jameson, green beer to endless green shots, we know we'll be feeling the pain come Friday morning. That's why we're giving you a little two-part low down on how to avoid that hangover you are already dreading. So what should you eat before drinking all night on St. Patrick's Day? Let us break it down for ya. First of all, don't skip dinner and eat BEFORE you start drinking. That whole building a base layer for the booze to settle into only works if you're building it before the booze enters your system. Get that nosh in your stomach early so you can change the outcome of your all-night drinking binge.

Second, eat right and eat smart. The best thing to do to avoid feeling like death on March 18th is to eat these killer foods that'll get your mind and body right. Food really does counteract the effects of alcohol... who knew? - Spaghetti (or other carbs) - yep, carbo-load all night long baby. It's a real thing and it works. Try our Pull Apart Bacon Garlic Cheese Bread... - Chicken - protein-rich so it'll stay in ya longer and it will slow the blood alcohol level. That means you can drink longer and enjoy the entire night before you feel like passing out! Go for the small servings like a burrito bowl or even our delicious Sriracha Lime Baked Chicken Wings. - Avocado - protein + healthy fats will actually digest slower than carbs so whip out that guacamole like there's no tomorrow. - Low-fat yogurt - if you're worried about consuming too many calories on this delicious, boozy holiday, start off with some yogurt and granola. You'll get the healthy fats and vitamins in you before you go pigging out on beer and corned beef. - Water - this one's a no-brainer, but don't forget about it. When it comes to hangovers, water does a body good. Pro tip: always take a couple of ibuprofen and chug a gigantic glass of water before bed (or when you wake up with cotton mouth at 4AM). Thank us later.

If you do happen to skip dinner in all the craziness that is St. Patty's Day, never fear. Just load up on nuts and olives at the bar because they've got the fats and vitamins to help you out. Martini with 10 olives, anyone? Happy St. Patrick's Day! Stay tuned because we've got some more knowledge to drop on ya to fight that hellish hangover...

When beer, bacon and cheese come together, it's a beautiful thing. It's an even more beautiful thing when it's all baked up into a gooey dip like the one you see right here. I don't know of anyone who could resist diving into this dish headfirst. I mean, it's bacon and cheese so it's a given that everyone will be obsessed with it.

Bacon & Beer Cheese Dip | Sauce + Style

But it's the beer that really makes this dip insanely delicious. The hoppy IPA gives the dish a little bite of beer flavor that pairs so perfectly with all that crispy bacon and massive amounts of cheese. The result is a dip that needs to be busted out on the regular, especially during tailgating season. As you gather around the TV to watch your favorite team bring home the win, this cheesy mess of goodness will make the win that much sweeter (or cheesier....). Beer and beer always go hand in hand. Don't try to argue with that logic, because you'll lose.
