Beer & Cooking

The Fork & Brewer kitchen is proud to use beer in our dishes


In addition to being an excellent accompaniment to food, beer can be used as an ingredient. The Fork & Brewer kitchen is proud to use beer in our dishes because, used appropriately, craft beers with flavour can bring a lot to the meal. We currently utilise beer in our battered fish, the rarebit, and the Porter marshmallow to name a few.

It is not just beer which can be useful in the kitchen. By-products from the brewing process – which is fundamentally very similar to cooking – can be used with a bit of imagination.

At the moment, spent grain from the Tuatara Brewery is used in our bread and on our chicken wings. Once the Fork & Brewer in-house brewery is up and running, we will use spent grain from there and also make more use of other brewing materials including brewer’s yeast and wort (brewing liquid).
