Peaches and Ale Cream Pie

It’s peach season in New Jersey and I went peach picking for the first time this year! I have about 12 pounds of peaches sitting at home waiting to be eaten. Believe me, 12 pounds is a lot of peaches. What better way to enjoy all of these juicy peaches than combining them with beer and trying out some new recipes. The Beeroness has done it again with her recipe for Peaches and Cream Ale Pie. Yum!

    • Hmm…that is an interesting thought. I didn’t think to use an IPA, but I think it would balance out the sweetness of the peaches nicely. Will have to try this out 🙂
