Frambozen Beef Stew

Raspberry brown ale with beef ?!? Who would’ve thought those two ingredients could go together? Maybe they don’t, maybe you’ll just have to make the recipe and see…

This means you’ll find a Crock Pot, dutch oven, lots of baking sheets, and whatever else you need to make heaps of stews and cookies. I’ve also started to gravitate towards winter ingredients, hence the seasonal Frambozen by New Belgium and a few pounds of beef. This year’s Frambozen is slightly tangy, slightly sweet, and has just the right amount of raspberry with earthy undertones you’d expect from a brown ale. When you mix that goodness with some herbs and veggies, it creates a pretty damn delicious stew.
