Dark Beer Syrup


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

  • 1 (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle dark beer (such as Goose Island® Oktoberfest)

  • 1 ½ cups white sugar


  1. Combine beer and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat; bring to a gentle simmer. Cook, skimming off any foam that forms on the top, until reduced to a light syrup consistency, 30 to 45 minutes.


Try not to stir the mixture too much, or you may end up with beer-flavored rock candy.
