Beer and food go together better than anything else you can eat and drink at the same time. The complexity of craft beer lends itself to near-unlimited pairings, many of which are multi-layered and work on several levels. And then, there’s beer and wings. Get down, get stuck in and everything else comes a distant second. Wings are made for craft beer. If you agree, you’ll want to read this.
Introducing all you can eat wings. Seventeen BrewDog Bars. Every Wednesday.
Yes, you read that right. Visit one of our bars that rocks wings and when you order a regular portion, all you need to do is enjoy them and you can order five more. And then top up with another five. Add a quintet on top. Keep going. All you can eat wings, just £10, or £12 if you are chowing down in one of our London bars. Good for regular chicken or our crazy-good Buffalo Cauliflower variety!
Our top choice for what to drink with chicken wings? It has to be our original and flagship Punk IPA. The bitterness from the New World hops cuts through the juicy payload of the wings, cleansing your palate for the next bite – and if you love heat that same hop bitterness will boost the spice of our famous hot sauce. Plus it takes our blue cheese dip to elbows-out heaven.
In the spirit of last week, where we launched DIY Dog 2018 and released the detailed recipes of all 325 BrewDog beers for the global homebrewing community, for free, we asked our kitchen wiz Tom if he would reveal his recipe for BrewDog Bar wings (and secret hot sauce). He said yes. So here we are – another gift to those of you who like to create your own at home:-
“First up, prep the wings by marinating overnight in buttermilk and a pinch of salt. Then coat in gluten-free self-raising flower to order and deep fry for 7-9 minutes until golden and crispy. The sauce is 100ml Franks Red Hot Sauce, 50ml honey and 50g butter reduced low and slow until sticky, spicy, sweet and hot. Toss the wings in the sauce until just coated (not too much – they need to be crispy) and then serve!” (Don’t forget the Punk IPA…)
To take part in Wings Wednesday we ask that you reserve a table first, just so as Tom’s crews around the UK can get enough of their sauce on. You can do that via the bars’ website right here. So which BrewDog Bars are your new midweek haunt for great wings?
