Stout beef stew is a classic warming dish that’s perfect for fall! With the addition of red meat, you’ll definitely want to find a dark and robust beer. We’re big fans of the Hawk Tail Brewery Rye Milk Stout that you can order with your groceries from SPUD Edmonton! Beer acts as a natural tenderizer, and the yeasty flavour will stand up well against the flavourful meat.
