Perfect for celebrating Saint Patrick’s Day in Tijuana, this dry, black stout will drive the snakes out of any place you want. Roasted barley goes well with hot peppers, if only you let it.


Crazy Ed’s Cave Creek Chile Beer clone

Digital and Plus Members Only

This recipe is an attempt to clone Cave Creek Chili Beer, which was originally brewed by Crazy Ed’s Black Mountain Brewing in Cave Creek, Arizona with a chili pepper placed in each bottle. This golden lager looks harmless enough (unless there’s a chili lurking in the bottle!) but if you’re not careful, that hot stuff will reach right out of the glass and tear your throat open!


Classic Rauchbier

This is a Bamberg-style reddish lager, sweet and substantial like a Marzen, with the distinctive smokiness of a beechwood fire.
