National Beer Day Recipes from the Eastern Shore

National Beer Day toast among friends at bar hands holding tall beer glasses

National Beer Day is cause for celebration! Well, if you like beer, that is. Either way, we know everyone will love these beer inspired recipes. Beer is almost a secret weapon in the kitchen; for instance, it adds an earthy depth to cooked foods, and depending on the color and flavor of the beer, it can be great in sweet foods as well. And of course, you can always just drink your beer! That’s why we created our beautiful Pomegranate Shandy for people who aren’t keen on cooking.

Get together with your friends, have a few drinks, and make these delicious recipes to complete your party. And remember, always drink responsibly!

Yummy National Beer Day Recipes

Start off your night with our beautiful Pomegranate Shandy. Made with light beer and Eastern Shore Honey, it’s a fruity beverage that pairs well with all types of appetizers and meals. Above all, you can swap out pomegranate juice for your favorite juice. Try grapefruit or pear juice that will taste just as great.

Pomegranate shandy made with Eastern Shore Honey

Use your favorite dark beer in this Sweet + Spicy Honey Chili. It’s made with a great mix of beans, tomatoes, spices, and vegetable crumbles that will make you go back for seconds. To sum up, it’s a perfect appetizer or meal for your get-togethers, and you’ll love how easy it is to prepare.

Spicy Honey Chili with Beer

If you want something to dip into your chili, make a loaf of this Honey Beer Bread. It’s easy, yeast-free, and doesn’t require time to rise before baking. This recipe lets you have freshly baked bread any time you want it, without trekking to the bakery.

More to do with beer for National Beer Day

Kill Slugs

You heard it here first, but maybe not. If you are an avid gardener, so are we. Slugs get into the garden and do battle with your leafy greens. Yuck. Nothing worse than finding a garden slimed by slugs. As a kid we would pour iodized salt on slugs to get rid of them. Later in life I learned to take mason jar lids and fill them with beer. Apparently the little buggers have a taste for beer.

Also in the great outdoors, beer.

Cure your lawn of brown spots. Acids in beer kill off bugs and the other ingredients promote green growth.

Ease a Tummy Ache

There I was in DC many years ago at a Michael Jackson concert with the worst stomach ache and my dear friend Kathy handed me a beer and said “Drink this, it will ease your stomach“. I was a little apprehensive, and was never a beer drinker but Kathy was on to something that night. Try it, you may be surprised.

Tenderize Meat

Rather than using a meat tenderizer that’s MSG laden, try beer. It will tame and soften your beef in no time.

raw meat to be tenderized with beer on straw matt with fresh veggies including garlic, carrots, onlon and celery
