Prep Time: 20 minutes | Yield: 6


  • 5 egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup regular coconut milk
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 1/4 cup Chocolate Maple Porter (or any dark, delicious beer)


  1. To make this delicious porter ice cream, in a medium-sized thick-bottomed pot combine coconut milk, heavy cream, and Porter and cook over low heat just until hot.
  2. In a medium bowl whisk together egg yolks and sugar until thick and pale, about three minutes.
  3. Using a ladle or a small measuring cup, scoop a few small amounts of the hot liquid into your egg yolk mixture, whisking constantly. Once you've scooped in enough liquid for the yolks to become warm (about three scoops), gently whisk the mixture back into your saucepan with the remaining coconut milk, cream, and beer.
  4. Turn the heat to medium and stir constantly with a wooden spoon until mixture is thick enough to coat the back of the spoon in a thin, creamy layer.
  5. Transfer through a strainer and into a bowl. Refrigerate until cool, and churn in your ice cream maker to preferred consistency. Freeze until hard and enjoy.
  6. Find more great recipes from Brooklyn Brew Shop at The Mash.

Stout Braised and Bacon Studded Collard Greens

I often have a debate with my foodie friends down here in the South not about which BBQ joint makes the best pulled pork, but which one makes the best collard greens. Opinions and styles very widely. Some like theirs with a heavy dose of peppery heat. Others prefer lots of vinegar. Then there are those who prefer collards studded with meaty chunks of ham or bacon. A fourth camp would rather have the earthy flavors of the greens shine. This recipe is the perfect marriage of them all. Why? Because the stout blends the heat, vinegar, and bacon in a hearty earthiness.
