Just a girl trying to cook with beer. I'm a St. Louis Cardinals die-hard fan, lover of saisons and my hero is Leslie Knope. In my free time (outside of grad school and PorchDrinking) I write for my personal blog, Drink and Spoon. If you want to find me, I'll be at the breweries or in the kitchen!

Cooking with Beer | Kaiser Butternut Squash Soup

October 20, 2016 | Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

It’s the middle of October, the shelves are filled with gourdy beers and the temperatures are falling outside. If there’s one thing I love about fall evenings, it’s sitting inside and stuffing my face full of delicious treats. On this particular day, I decided butternut squash soup would be the perfect meal to accompany my Netflix binge-sesh. This ain’t your run of the mill butternut squash soup either – I filled it with apples, fennel, onions and garlic. To give it an extra kick, I tossed in a good amount of Kaiser – an Imperial Oktoberfest Lager by Avery Brewing that is chock full of festive spices. The final product is finished with a balsamic reduction drizzle and a few sourdough croutons. Make this meal, cuddle up on the couch, and never leave your house again.
