Back when I wrote the IPA Pickle recipe for PorchDrinking.com, I knew that one day those little slices of joy would transform into crispy bites of heaven – aka fried pickles. I’ve got a crush on fried pickles and when I say that I mean it, I’ve got it bad. Usually when I’m eating fried pickles, I’m at a bar drinking a cold one so I thought why not just combine the two and make everything better? These pickles soaked in IPA for a week and were also beer battered before meeting their maker in the hot oil. To top it all off, I served them with a dip that is probably going to become a staple in my refrigerator because it’s just that good. Go grab your deep fryer and lets make some pickles!
