A very nice substitute for regular maple syrup. It can also be used to flavor cocktails as well. Use your favorite craft beer to make this delicious syrup. Darker beers, like nut brown ales, porters, and stouts work best.

I've been making this stout syrup recipe for about 6 months now. We use it is an "old fashioned" drink. I use 1/2 white sugar and 1/2 brown sugar. It may been the heat I cook it on but only takes about 35 minutes from start to finish. Read More

I made it when Demerara sugar and brown sugar so it resulted in a molasses/honey consistency. Smells like stout but doesn't give any flavors. Read More
