Holiday IPA Popcorn

Posted in Food & Beer

Cooking with beer is familiar to some and uncharted territory for others. Beer imparts special character, aroma and taste to recipes, and lends adventure to culinary exploration. While eggnog, cocoa, pies and other dessert favorites may dominate your holiday gatherings, here's a fresh idea for a sweet and savory snack: Celebration IPA popcorn. Someone might physically have to take this bowl away from you. Caramel Popcorn with Celebration® IPA 2...
