Breaking Bread Hop Valley Style: Cheddar Chive Beer Biscuits

You already know that beer and cheese make for a great pairing. So we couldn’t wait to try out this hearty biscuit recipe that incorporates smooth and mild cheddar cheese, delicate and fragrant chives and creamy buttermilk with Hop Valley’s robust and balanced Alphadelic IPA.

These biscuits make a fine addition to all kinds of meals. From roasted and grilled meats to seafood entrees to vegetarian dishes to just devouring them as a tasty snack, these delectable Cheddar Chive Beer Biscuits make for a delightful little extra. Served with some Alphadelic IPA to wash it all down with, of course.

Ingredients: 

  • 6 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 12 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded (being from Oregon, we love Tillamook)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh garlic
  • 1/3 cup chives
  • 12 ounces cold butter, cut into cubes
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 ½ cup Hop Valley Alphadelic IPA

Directions:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Add flour, baking powder, salt, cheese, garlic and chives to food processor or mixer and blend until well combined. Add cold cubes of butter, either pulsing with the food processor or mixing with the mixer until mostly incorporated (a few small chunks of butter is fine). Turn the device off, pour in buttermilk and beer then mix again until just combined. Drop dough onto a baking sheet with a large spoon (a 4-ounce ice cream scoop also works great). Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. For a bit of extra pop, sprinkle the finished biscuits with smoked paprika or Jacobsen flavored salt.

Cheers!
