How to make beer popcorn

Colin Joliat Alcohol & Food Editor

Popcorn is great, but wouldn’t it be better if it was cooked in beer? Yes, yes it would, and it’s incredible easy to do. Watching¬†Expendables 2 On-Demand somehow just got manlier.

1/4 cup vegetable or canola oil
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup Truck Stop Honey Brown Ale
1 bag of unpopped popcorn (or 1/2 cup of popcorn kernels)

In a large pot, heat the oil and beer on medium heat until it starts bubbling. Add the sugar and popcorn. Shake the pot (so the sugar doesn’t burn the pot) until the popcorn starts popping. Once there are a few seconds between pops, remove from heat and let cool down for a bit, stirring occasionally to keep the pieces from sticking together. Transfer to a serving dish.
