Leinenkugel’s Wisconsin-Style Brew-Based Super Bowl Recipes

Oftentimes being a mom involves attention to some mucky details we’d rather do without. Like men, for example. Imagine if we could just make the kids ourselves and not have to deal with all that extra baggage!

Totally kidding, of course. Lots of men are pretty okay some of the time, including my very own husband, father to my children; and my dad is great, too. Surely you have a special man or two in your life as well. And to get the things we want, sometimes it is best, we know, to treat them to the silly little things they desire. Like beer. And football.

Football, food and beer are undeniably a winning combination. And as next weekend is the football game of all football games, and happens to be starring the Green Bay Packers of Wisconsin, I appreciate finding these beer-inclusive recipes from The Wisconsin-based 144-year-old Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Co. to set the culturally representational stage for my guys.

Leinie’s Classic Big Game Beer Cheese Spread

• 1 8-oz. package cream cheese
• 4-oz. shredded sharp cheddar cheese
• 1 tablespoon chopped green onion top
• ¼ cup Leinenkugel’s 1888 Bock (seasonal Jan. – March)
• 1 teaspoon horseradish
• ½ teaspoon dry mustard

Microwave cheeses for 2 ½ minutes. Gradually beat in remaining ingredients. Cook covered for another 1-2 minutes, stirring twice. Serve with pretzels, crackers and veggies.

Leinie’s Sunset-Glazed First Down Chicken

• 10-12 pieces of chicken (cut for grilling)
• 2 bottles Leinenkugel’s Sunset Wheat (measure out 1/3 cup and set aside for sauce)
• 3 tablespoons Canola Oil
• 1 cup finely chopped onion
• 2 tablespoons of minced garlic
• 10-oz can mandarin oranges (save 1/3-cup liquid and finely chop oranges)
• 4 tablespoons pure maple syrup
• 2 tablespoons soy sauce
• ¼ teaspoon ginger
• ½ teaspoon pepper

Clean, salt and pepper chicken and place in a gallon-sized plastic storage bag. Pour all Leinie’s Sunset Wheat, minus 1/3 cup, into bag with chicken. Refrigerate overnight.

To make Leinie’s Sunset Grilling Sauce sauté garlic and onions in canola oil over medium-low heat until onions become lightly browned and translucent. Add 1/3 cup liquid from orange can and oranges to onion mixture and continue to sauté until juice is reduced. Turn heat to low and add maple syrup, soy sauce, Leinie’s Sunset Wheat, ginger and pepper. Simmer for 10 minutes.

Prepare charcoal. Place chicken in baking dish and bake at 350° for ½ hour. Place partially baked chicken on grill and baste with Leinie’s Sunset Grilling Sauce until done. You may want to make extra sauce to serve with chicken.

A Sweet Ending

Pair Leinenkugel’s Berry Weiss, featuring a fresh blend of indigenous Wisconsin berries, including blackberries, elderberries and loganberries, with chocolate or a triple cream cheese like Camembert for a simple dessert option.

    HI THERE! I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHAT SIZE PITCHER CAN BE USED?
    IS IT A 1QUART, 2 QUART, OR A LOT BIGGER OR DOES IT MATTER, SINCE IT WAS NOT MENTIONED! THANK-YOU!

    I ALSO NEED TO ASK, IS IT BEST TO USE A GLASS PITCHER, OR PLASTIC? BECAUSE THE PLASTIC ONE’S ARE MORE TALL STAIGHT KIND OF PITCHERS OR IS IT BEST TO USE THE BIG MORE ROUND KIND THAT YOU HAVE DISPLAYED ABOVE HERE? THANK-YOU!
