Drink beer, eat wings. It’s the thing to do together.

We all enjoy wings and beer.  It’s just the thing to do. It seems to work well in many restaurants where sporting events are televised. It’s especially a big deal for Superbowl parties. Well why not put it together? Have wings made with beer. You can still pair it with your favorite beer. The infamous “rootbeer” wings are the non-alcoholic version but this is a twist with beer and is quite easy. As you know, the alcohol cooks off anyways. Even if you are not a fan of stout beer, you won’t be disappointed. Give this Grilled beer and brown sugar wings recipe from The BeerOness a try and let us know how you like it.
