Let your soup get a little drunk so that you may have more flavor. The hops in beer are a delicious addition to classic tortilla soup.


Beer Brownies

Chocolate Guinness Mousse Cups

Chocolate Guinness Mousse Cups For Two are a fun yet decadent dessert for adults. If there’s one thing that makes stout beer even better, it’s chocolate.
