Very Important Brownies

Hop Valley Vanilla Infused Porter Brownies Recipe

Beer and brownies? Beer in brownies? Hop Valley beer in brownies?

Now you’re talking.

Certain beers—particularly porters and stouts—make an ideal match for pairing with sweet treats like chocolate and cookies. (And brownies!) And compared to similar varieties, Hop Valley’s Vanilla Infused Porter (VIP) brings with it notes of vanilla, a bit of cocoa and a nice, mild toasty character that plays well with many sweet-tooth-satisfying concoctions.

In this recipe, Hop Valley VIP is added to an otherwise straightforward brownie recipe for a delicious creation perfect for celebrating…well, dang near anything you want. Because who doesn’t like brownies? Sweet, savory and richly flavored, whip up a batch of these brownies and give yourself the VIP treatment!
