Beer and Food

The beer and food section of The Academy is all about combining great food with great craft beer. If you think about it, beer is really a food itself.¬† It’s made from grains like barley and wheat, and is even spiced with hops and endless other ingredients. It’s no wonder that beer and food go so well together.

Here you’ll find recipes for cooking with beer as an ingredient and tips¬† for pairing beer with food. With the exploding market of craft beer and its endless variety of beer styles, there has never been a better time to bring these two items to the dinner table.

Visit the sections below to find what you are looking for. I’ve broken them down into three categories:

  1. Cooking with beer: A collection of posts on BillyBrew using beer as an ingredient in recipes.
  2. Beer and food pairings: Tips on pairing beer with food. From classic beer and cheese pairings, to beers that pair with rich, chocolaty desserts.
