Super Bowl Snacks. With Beer! So, our boys won’t be playing in the big game this weekend, but that won’t stop us from having some of our favorite game day snacks. We’ve got a few recipes to impress your friends on Superbowl Sunday. Adding a little beer to your favorite foods is a great way to enhance the flavors of both the beer and your food. Natalie has a great Sasquatch Chili recipe that she has made a few times for the Saturday Brewery Tours. Everyone always loves it and she is happy to give out the recipe. We are also sharing our Pecan Porter Black Bean Dip recipe that is great with chips or veggies. A lighter (LOL) and sweet touch to your Sunday can be a Milk and Honey Fruit Dip. It is a classic recipe with a few special touches added. The dip is very tasty with fresh fruit and even better if you put the fruit on skewers. Just don’t get too angry with the game and hurt a friend.
