For this week’s edition of What We’re Cooking, PorchDrinking’s Emma Wargolet provides this Porter cupcake recipe that comes from Betty Crocker and was adapted by Deschutes Brewery using their Black Butte Porter. Emma loves this recipe because it’s easily adaptable, and if you’re short on time, you don’t need to make the frosting from scratch (don’t worry, we won’t tell). These Easy Porter Cupcakes are rich enough without being overpowering, and the beer provides complementary notes of chocolate and coffee. Deschutes’ Black Butte Porter is available year round, so rest assured you can bake off a batch of these cupcakes every season of the year. Enjoy!
Beer, like a great meal, is best when shared with others. This recipe brings that holy trinity of beer, food (in this case the king of foodstuffs, cheese), and people together around one delectable pot of gooey awesomeness. PorchDrinking’s Karl Kalinkewicz has been using this recipe for over a decade as a way to satiate cheese cravings while also hosting an interactive and communal food experience. Invite over your cheesiest friends, crack some beers, duel with your fondue spears over the last morsels of melted deliciousness, and enjoy this delicious recipe provided by Karl!

Ah, Thanksgiving. That time of year we kick off the holiday season with family, friends and lots of food. It only seems fitting to pair all of that food with appropriate beers though, right? Well, be sure to take some notes and get your beer shopping on, these pairings won’t disappoint. I had a great time whipping up these dishes to pair with some very stellar beers.
I don’t know what’s so impressive about being able to mix up anything more than a Cape Codder (cranberry juice + vodka), but there’s something about it that says — in a very cool, collected and understated way — that you’ve got it together. For non-beer drinkers, being able to mix up a legitimate cocktail, is akin to bringing the perfect six pack. Here are a few simple cocktail recipes to get you started.
