Guinness Chocolate Cake With Salted Caramel Glaze

The Hungry Housewife

A nice dark stout beer like Guinness makes an amazingly fudgy, dark, dense cake, and topped with salted caramel glaze, it becomes downright decadent and ultra-rich.


Guinness Pulled Pork

Gimme Some Oven

Add some seasonings, a bottle of Guinness, and a few pounds of pork butt, loin, or shoulder to your slow cooker, and sit back and wait patiently for the tastiest fall-apart-on-your-fork pulled-pork ever. Great for sliders, tacos, or even a salad, this recipe is totally versatile and great for crowds.

Classic French onion soup gets an Irish twist in this delicious recipe, which slow cooks the onions in Guinness and red wine vinegar. A slice of French bread and a slice of aged Irish cheddar are the perfect finishing touch.

Guinness Milk Chocolate Ice Cream

Peace Love and French Fries

It wouldn’t be a celebration without ice cream, right? The thought of beer ice cream might be off-putting, but the rich, wrong-right flavor is surprisingly addictive when mixed with chocolate. If you’re a fan of alternative ice-cream flavors, you have to try this.

Guinness Bloody Mary

A Beautiful Mess

The Bloody Mary is one of the most versatile cocktails, but most alterations we see are usually garnishes or seasonings.
