The past few weeks have felt bizarre as the entire world shifts into a state of social distancing. Businesses have had to change their models overnight, schools have shut down and most of us have settled into the new normal of being homebound. 

With so much time on our hands, and so little to do, it’s a great time to get creative and try new things. It’s also a great time to revisit old favorites. 

This week, to help you make the most of time at home, we're helping folks get creative in their kitchen by trying out some of these fun, beer-infused recipes we found around the internet.

 

FLEMISH BEER AND BEEF STEW 

First up, is a tummy-filling, slow-clooking staple - a rich beef stew. This recipe (via Saveur) recommends using a Belgian-style beer with deep, dark flavor. Our pick is: Rockingham Three Little Pigs

BACON CRUSTED BEER MAC AND CHEESE

Who doesn't love a cheesy Mac n Cheese? It's great as a side dish or a main dish, and it's easy to make. We love the Bacon Crusted Beer Mac and Cheese from Melanie Makes. The recipe calls for a stout, so our pick is Oskar Blues Ten Fidy.

JALAPENO BEER CHEESEBURGER WITH BEER-CANDIED BACON

Last, but certainly not least is beer's favorite companion - a nice, juicy burger. The Beeroness Blog doubles your fun with this Jalapeno Beer Cheesburger with Beer-Candied Bacon. Woah! The recipe recommends an IPA, and our pick is Cigar City Jai Alai. Be sure to serve this up with a pile of fries on the side.
