Bonfire Stout Marinade Recipe

The entire team here at Drop Bear absolutely love to cook, especially cooking with beer, and there’s nothing better than using our award-winning, alcohol-free Drop Bear Beer to really make your dish pop!

Say hello to our Bonfire Stout Marinade Recipe!

It’s okay, we’re not gonna bore you like other recipe websites do, you know the ones that give you their entire life story and tell you their recipe was passed down from their Uncle’s, Nan’s, Father’s, Half-Sister’s, Cousin? Where they go into excruciating detail about how their recipe “saved dinner time” and all that jazz.

No. Our Head Of Marketing, Amy, spent an hour in her kitchen experimenting with a range of herbs and spices, sipping on a Drop Bear trying to create the perfect mind-blowing beer recipe, using our amazing non-alcoholic Bonfire Stout. She succeeded.

Whether it’s fresh veggies, tofu, meat or meat substitutes (whatever ya’ like really!!), we can guarantee that the Drop Bear Bonfire Stout Marinade will take your dish from a ‘woah’ to a ‘wooaaahhhh’.
