We love cooking almost as much as we love brewing. Almost. In this section you'll find some of our favorite recipes to cook at home. Most are Garrett's personal creations. Some are from friends and neighbors. All go great with Brooklyn beer.

  • Brooklyn Lager

    Beer-Can Chicken

    Beer-Can Chicken

    Steve Hindy learned this recipe in Italy, where he met North Carolina barbcue legend Jim "Trim" Tabb at a Slow Food Festival. The vapors from the beer yield a moist, tasty chicken, and the cooking time gives you a chance to enjoy another Brooklyn Lager while the first goes to work on your bird.

    Linquine Carbonara

    Linquine Carbonara

    The flavors of the dark malts and candi sugar meld perfectly with the flavors of the pancetta and cheese. You’ll be astounded by how good this pairing is (then again, it does have bacon in it, so it’s no surprise).

    These are a real favorite, from my barbecues in Brooklyn to seaside hangouts with friends in Brazil. The recipe sounds a bit strange, but these burgers are mighty tasty.

    Boneless Quail stuffed with Foie Gras and Black Truffle Mousse

    Boneless Quail stuffed with Foie Gras and Black Truffle Mousse

    This recipe works well with any number of stuffings; another favorite is fresh goat cheese. The easiest quail to use are the pre-prepared semi-boneless type, which normally have a V-shaped wire inside the cavity.
