Fall is a great time for experimenting with food and drink pairings.  Beer especially can open up some wonderful and unique opportunities. And with Autumn being one of the prime seasons for artichokes (the other being Spring) this combination can be amazing. Some mouthwatering duos could be grilled artichokes and lager, beer-braised artichokes, or ale and artichoke dip! Below we have a great recipe for this enticing appetizer, perfect for football tailgating, or even a holiday get-together.


16 oz. artichoke hearts, drained and coarsely chopped
1 shallot, finely chopped
1 cup mayonnaise
1 ½ cups shredded Parmesan
¼ cup beer – blonde, wheat or sweeter pale ale
¼ tsp. cayenne pepper
¼ tsp. freshly ground black pepper
½ cup dried spent grain or panko bread crumbs


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. In a mixing bowl combine artichoke hearts, shallot, mayonnaise and Parmesan. Fold in beer and spices.
  3. Transfer to oven safe baking dish. Top with dried spent grain (or panko).
  4. Bake for 20 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes.
  5. Serve with crackers or toast and enjoy.
