This richly flavored cake features quintessential Irish ingredients such as dark porter beer, dark brown sugar and whiskey.

2. Guinness Ice Cream with Chocolate-Covered Pretzels

Star chef Michael Symon's delicious ice cream has a strong, malty Guinness flavor that goes supremely well with the salty, milk chocolate-covered pretzels.

3. Cherry Lambic Crisps

Kriek—lambic beer fermented with cherries—intensifies the fruit flavors in these crisps.

 

4. Chocolate-Stout Tiramisu

For this rich tiramisu, chef Jason McCullar soaks ginger-spiced cake in a reduction made with chocolate stout (Rogue brewery makes a good version) before layering it with mascarpone cream.

5. Sour-Cherry Lambic Sorbet

"Above all, sorbet should taste--and feel--almost like eating fresh fruit," says ice cream maven Jeni Britton.
