– 12 oz bottle Yuengling Black & Tan
– 2 fillets of cod fish, fresh or frozen and cut into chunks
– 6 cloves garlic, minced
– 1/4 cup diced ham or bacon
– 3 stalks of celery, chopped
– 1 large onion, diced
– 1 cup bell pepper strips
– 1 large can Italian tomatoes
– 8 oz chicken stock
– 1 cup okra, chopped
– Tabasco and Worcestershire sauce, to taste
– Cayenne pepper, thyme and bay leaves, to taste

Lightly brown garlic in olive oil. Heat the ham/bacon, celery and onions. Add peppers, tomatoes, stock and beer. Cook until peppers soften. Add Tabasco and Worcestershire sauce to taste, along with salt and pepper. Add okra and cod fish. Season with cayenne pepper, thyme and bay leaves. Simmer until fish cooks through. Garnish with parsley to serve. Makes 4 quarts

– 12 oz bottle Yuengling Lord Chesterfield Ale
– 2 1/2 pounds boneless chicken breasts or thighs
– 1 large onion, thinly sliced
– 1 pkg dried apricots, chopped and lightly dusted in flour
– 2 cloves garlic, minced
– 1 tbsp fresh ginger, finely minced
– 1 tsp cinnamon
– Kosher salt and pepper, to taste

In a 9x13-inch baking dish, place half the onion slices and apricots. Rub the chicken with garlic and ginger, and sprinkle with salt, pepper and cinnamon. Place chicken in the dish on top of the onions and apricots, then scatter the remaining half of onions and apricots around the chicken. Pour beer over it, submerging the onions and apricots so they don’t burn. Cover with a foil tent to keep it moist. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 1 hour, or until the chicken is cooked through, basting every 15 minutes with the liquid. Remove foil tent and cook for 15 more minutes. Top chicken with the cooked onions, apricots and sauce to serve. Makes 6 servings

I would love to enjoy a couple variety pack cases, but alas, my favorite brand of beer is not available in the Bluegrass State. Hopefully it will be some day soon.
