Pork & White Bean Beer Chili

Our neighbors at Brew York New York posted a delicious recipe for a chili using Gansett. So naturally we asked if we can share with everyone here. Taste and Enjoy!

Beer isn’t just for drinking; it’s for cooking, too! The Brew York, New York kitchen is experimenting with beer-based food recipes, and when they actually work, we’re sharing them with you! Here’s a recipe for a white bean chili using Narragansett Lager. Naturally, that’s not the only beer you can use, but we recommend a lightly-hopped, light-bodied American Lager for this recipe so it doesn’t overpower the heat of the green chiles. We think this is the perfect simple, hearty recipe for those cold winter months.

Happy cooking!
