Kansas City Recipes

Kansas City Burnt Ends

It doesn't get much better on game day than a good team matchup, cold brews and some delicious barbecue. These tender burnt ends go for a slow smoke that infuses flavor deep into the meat. The tangy barbecue sauce wakes up the flavors and gives it that finger-licking goodness you want from great barbecue.

Kansas City Beer Brats

Braising brats and finishing them on the grill gives them the best of both cooking techniques. A beer bath ensures a juicy and tender finish while the grill adds a wonderful smoky charred flavor

San Francisco Recipes

Who doesn't love a good cheese dip? This is the ultimate easy yet delicious party food, and it's my go-to for football parties. Using Anchor Steam beer and San Francisco sourdough keep it local for me at home in the Bay.

This sando is San Francisco on a plate. The in-season Dungeness crab plus good old sourdough makes this dish feel like home every time.
