My lovely friends over at Dry Dock Brewing are preparing for the Super Bowl and they wanted to cook with beer. Luckily for me, they make so many amazing brews so it was easy to find one to incorporate into food: I went with the gold medal winning Apricot Blonde. To come up with a recipe, I figured out what a Dry Dock brewer craves for football munchies and this is what Doug Hyndman had to say:
“I certainly am a football watching fool. Wings and pizza are always a good fit with football. I’m also a big fan of bacon-wrapped jalapeños, and fried cheese curds would be sweet. Bison chile with habaneros…”
Doug, I’m sorry I won’t be cooking everything you want, but you will see some Doug-inspired recipes in the future. For now, I hope this recipe for Apricot Sweet Chili Sauce will suffice.
As for the Super Bowl, I don’t care who wins as long as its not the Patriots.

This recipe is a tagalong to my Beeracha post found here. It’s a healthy way to put this spicy condiment to use and I consider this hummus a staple item in my refrigerator.
3 cans garbanzo beans, drained
2-4 cloves of garlic (depending on size)
1 tsp salt
1/3 cup grapeseed oil
1/4 cup water
2- 5 tbsp Beeracha
You only have to do one thing. Blend it all together! I started with 2 tbsp of Beeracha and it gave a nice background heat to the hummus. If you’re looking for more of a kick, you can drizzle some on top when it is finished or add a few more tablespoons into the blender. I suggest blending for 3 minutes to get a perfect creamy texture.
The best thing you can bring to a party, besides delicious beer, is an amazing dip. This great salsa is sure to please and luckily, it can be used in another recipe as well. One dip is good but two dips are twice as nice. What better to serve them with on Super Bowl Sunday than Man Beer. Straight from Colorado’s own Bull and Bush Brewery, the orange and blue bottle represents the Broncos and the beer inside is packed with flavor. This delicious English IPA is a classic and the hops and citrus help to even out the spice in the salsa. Good luck whipping up this easy recipe and GO BRONCOS!
