The fools back at the Institute laughed at me! They LAUGHED!!!

But we'll see who's laughing now! Years of research, dozens of failed experiments, the scorn of a thousand eyes...all of that will be forgotten, and the world will tremble in the shadow of my ultimate creation...

BEER PIE!

"kids"????????????

In the county I live in here in Texas, I could EASILY be your father at my age.

Now, let's consider the question you ask.

While Guinness is supreme, would it be legal to adulterate it w/the fat content to make it into cheescake? Consider the butter for the crust and then the fat in filling. While you have a great idea, my stomach has never been able to digest much fat. Perhaps a Guinness sorbet????????

Yeah, kidz! Card, a Guiness Sorbet sounds great, but I've found that alchohol has a difficult time freezing, but drizzled over another base sorbet, might be great. But Ben & Jerry's make a most decadent flavor called Dublin Mudslide, which is essentially Guiness base, with chocolate gooey stuff in it. How about a lowfat version of a Guinness Cake , or fruity beer torte? I could do guinness truffles, easy.

You could probably actually do a beer version of a cream pie... made of course, with low or nonfat milk. Topped with some kind of lowfat whipped something... or something else.

Godiva amaretto truffles are the supreme taste!!!!!!!!!

While Guinness truffles have their merits, they have stiff competition for my taste buds.

Sorry

Sounds like a good way to waste a perfectly good beer.

Pie was invented for those of us who don't drink beer.

Or maybe it was invented BY someone who didn't drink beer.

One can also go for the combo with Brown Ale Beer Shoo Fly Pie:

Or Southern Chocolate Stout Beer Pecan Pie:

The conservative in me suggests..........."Eat Pie................and Drink Beer".



Somehow that sounds like a Gekko should be saying it.

Nope! At least not for me. I haven't had a beer for 19 years, 3 months and 25 days. My life is definitely better without it.

I *personally* am not apt to care for the idea of ruining a perfectly nice desert with an after-school snack of beer.

I've mentioned on another thread how I sometimes carry my backpack coffee making schwagg in my panniers on my sport rides, just in case that perfect vista point, and perhaps even nice company happens to all come together synchronistically . So, I'm wondering why you kids here haven't designed the beer cart that looks something like a BobTrailer.... in which you could really make some good converasations, possibly even friends, along your happy trails.

It's been done, on Ragbrai of course. Fellows towed a bar, complete with stools, all across the state. Just one small part of the fabric that makes Ragbrai what it is.

Unclassified NASA Document: Upon the quest for the beer pie, scientists quickly discovered that the liquid properties of the elixer made it impossible for the batter or its cooked product to remain on the pie plate without dispersing from the pie plate as liquids will do.

On July 29, 1958, Congress enacted the creation of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). The primary directive of NASA was to establish beer pie factories on low-gravity planetary bodies, to facilitate the baking of the beer-pie batter without the batter dispersing as any liquid would do in normal gravity. After numerous NASA launches, and while Americans remained unaware of the true reason for these space flights, beer pies became a reality. Success rested on the ability to make these pies on a low-gravitational orb that circles our planet Earth.

Good for you, Grouch!

I've never really done much drinkin' since back in college. These days, a six pack of Fat Tire Ale could last as long as six months in my fridge! But...when the mood strikes me for a cold one, it strikes me. But just one.

I practice the beer diet. Here is how it goes:
A 12 oz beer is 349 grams of liquid
A light beer has about 105 calories and is 12 oz
I drink Corona light which is 105 calories
A cold beer is stored in my frig at 38 degrees F which is 3 degrees C
My body temperature is 98.6F or 37C
My body heats the beer 34 degress C (37-3)
It takes 1 calorie to heat 1 gram of water 1 degree C
Therefore the simple act of drinking a beer requires my body to produce
349*34 = 11,866 calories. If the beer has only 105 calories then my net calorie consumption is 11,761.
If I drink beer I can afford to eat cheese cake!
BTW: I did my PhD under Flieschman and Ponds
