Beer Brownies


  • Place a rack in the center of the oven and preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter and flour a 9 x 13-inch baking pan. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, sift together flour, cocoa powder, and salt.
  • Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pot of boiling water.
  • In a small pan over medium heat, melt the butter until it just turns golden brown, about 5 minutes.
  • Pour the brown butter into the chocolate and stir until combined.
  • Remove the bowl from the heat and stir in the stout or other dark beer or cold coffee.
  • In a separate medium bowl, whisk together eggs and sugars until thick, about 2 minutes.
  • Add the chocolate mixture and whisk to combine.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until all of the ingredients are well combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Pour into the prepared pan and bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until the edges are firm and the center is set.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely in the pan before slicing.
  • Slice into 12 large or 24 small brownies.
  • To store, cover the pan in plastic wrap and keep on the counter for up to one week.
