Atlas Brewing Co. Bentley’s Bitter Lime Beer Bread

About a month ago, we had the opportunity to go down to Atlas Brewing Co. in Chicago.  Atlas is our second brewery and it was incredibly different from being at Church Street.  Atlas is actually a brew pub.  This means they brew the beer and sell it in the bar on site.  The bar itself […]

Chicago Breweries 2013: Atlas Brewing Company

Finally, we are all caught up with our beer breads.  Our next stop was Atlas.  They are a brew pub with a 7 barrel system.  Their beers were a little more traditional.  The interior truly felt like a place you would want to go for a drink.  The dark ceilings and dark furnishings put your […]

Church Street Brewing Co. Lemon Continental Lager Beer Bread

Church Street’s Continental Lager is strong on citrus, particularly lemon, and hops.  Hoppy beers aren’t high on our list of faves.  Maybe because we’re new to the beer scene we don’t appreciate bitterness as much as other beer connoisseurs would.  That’s the only reason for this being our last beer bread recipe from Church Street.  I wasn’t […]

Church Street Brewing Co. Scottish Ale Beer Bread

This beer bread post is way overdue.  All I can say is being sick does not mesh well with being productive. Here is another tantalizing beer bread recipe featuring Church Street Brewing Co.’s Scottish Ale.  The Scottish Ale is a caramel and malty beer.  We both loved this one and thought it would make an […]

Church Street Brewery Co. Brimstone IPA Bread

Are you ready for our second beer bread recipe?  We used Church Street’s Brimstone IPA to make a fantastic sandwich bread.  This beer has a definite spicy note to it.  It definitely comes through in the finished baked bread.  The bitterness in the beer also lends a sourdough like quality to the bread.  This recipe […]

Chicago Breweries: Church Street Brewing Co.

Church Street Brewing Co., a new local brewery and our first visit!  Just our luck too, because Joe knows beer with a background in chemical engineering.  He can brew with precision.  They started in September.  They have a thirty barrel system and they are a brewery to watch.  You may only be able to stop […]

Chicago Breweries: Beer Bread Project 2013

We posted a couple of weeks ago about a special new project at Rosie Discovers.  This year we’re touring breweries in the Chicago area.  Why are we touring them you ask?  Well over the holidays we got this great idea to make bread with craft beers. Had I ever made beer bread before?  Well, no […]

*Psst* We’ve got a Secret!

*psst*   We’ve been keeping a secret the past couple weeks!  It was an idea that came to us during the holidays.  Something that will involve local businesses and make something new all at the same time. Can you guess what it is?   Okay, okay I’ll give you a hint.  It involves local breweries. […]
