My boyfriend and I recently spent a weekend in Asheville, N.C., after attending a wedding in Charlotte. If you didn’t know, or have never been, Asheville is home to a lot of great breweries. Naturally, we spent most of our time exploring some of the best breweries (and food) in Asheville.
I love good traditional brownies, but adding a nice dark beer to them just kicks those rich, chocolate flavors up a few notches.
Beer brownies might be my new favorite brownies.
I experimented with beer brownies a few times last year. The first batch I tried, I made with a barrel-aged pumpkin ale, which ended up being a really unique flavor combination. The other time I made them with a brown ale, which was nice, but not quite as strong a flavor as I would’ve liked.
Then I tried the Love Supreme milk stout from local brewery Heaven & Ale, and my life changed.
