Default favorite beer to add to soups!

I know that is a broad question, but for general purpose beer used in soups and chili i like SA's Boston lager.

I just made a loaf of bread using three bottles of my chili beer. It turned out great.

Guinness is a staple ingredient for my beef stew.

I make a pretty good Texas Stout Chili.



Jett Rink Texas Stout Chili

Ingredients:
3 1/2 lbs. Chuck Roast (Cubed)
2 Large Walla Walla Sweet Onions (Minced)
4 Large Cloves Garlic (Minced)
32 oz. Chicken Stock
8 oz. Stout (I use Elysian Dragonstooth Stout but any flavorful English Style Stout will work)
16 oz. Tomato Sauce
3 oz. Gebhardt's Chili Powder
3 Tbsp. Ground Cumin
1 Tbsp. Oregano
1/4 Tsp. Cayenne Pepper

Sauté beef in a heavy skillet. Place in your favorite chili pot, cover and simmer with onions, garlic, chicken stock and stout for 1 1/2 hours. (Do not remove lid! No matter how tempting it may be). Add tomato sauce, chili powder, cumin, oregano and cayenne. Stir, cover and let cook another hour and 15 minutes.

Serves 6-8

Other than stouts or porters in chili, I haven't tried beer in soup. Maybe I should, my soups aren't very good. Made a pot of chicken soup yesterday & didn't like how it turned out. So, this afternoon I whacked up some deep fried chicken breasts, tossed them in batter & all. Much better.

Beer cheese bread? Yummy stuff! Had a Lt. Boss Lady who didn't drink. She'd "borrow" a can of beer from me, make bread & give me a loaf.

The Atomic Ale Brewpub in Richland, Washington makes a great cheese/porter soup using their house Plutionium Porter. It's very good, as are their wood oven fired pizzas
