  • Mix graham cracker crumbs and melted butter in a bowl; press into an 8-inch springform pan.

  • Combine cream cheese, brown sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, and cinnamon in a bowl until smooth; stir beer into cream cheese mixture until batter is thin and smooth. Pour batter over graham cracker crust.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until cheesecake is puffed and set in the middle, 40 to 60 minutes. Cool completely.

  • Melt chocolate chips and cream in the top of a double boiler over simmering water, stirring frequently and scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching. Pour over cooled cheesecake. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate 4 hours to overnight.

Cook's Notes:

This recipe can also be used for eight 6-ounce ramekins lined with parchment tabs. Cut parchment strips 2 inches wide and 8 inches long and line ramekins before pressing in crumbs.

Turned it into cupcakes. The Guinness added a nice flavor to the cheesecake, not too overpowering. The mixture was a bit watery, but they came out fine. They disappeared before I could take a pic lol. Read More
