Welcome to my most recent installment in my series “Cooking with Beer”. I’ve done a few posts in the past, but this will be a much more regular occurrence in 2016. I will feature DuClaw beers in many of my recipes as they are sponsoring many of the posts, but I’m sure I’ll branch out occasionally.
Today’s recipe features DuClaw Brewing’s Serum Double IPA. Serum is one of the beers that are available from DuClaw year round. It’s a nicely hopped beer using Columbus (bittering), Amarillo, and Cascade with an ABV of 8.3%.
This was my first time cooking with a hoppy beer (I’m a dark, malty beer kind of girl). My friend Steve helped me come up with a recipe that was tasty but not overpoweringly hoppy. The combination of heat and hops in this Thai Green Curry comes together quite well (and tastes even better as leftovers.)
This turned out really well. We forgot to marinate the chicken so ours needed some extra zing (and I picked out the peppers and gave them to Beer Geek LOL). I’m planning to make it again next week with beef and will let you know how that works out.
