This Beer Pie was inspired by one of my wife’s favorite pies: chocolate cream pie. It is classic, traditional and elegant in its simplicity. I wanted to take this classic coconut cream pie base and create more layers of flavor, depth and texture, while incorporating beer as an ingredient into the pie recipe. A beer I love to drink is Maui Brewing Co Coconut Hiwa Porter. It’s rich cocoa powder lusciousness blends with toasted coconut, adding a unique sweetness to the finish. As with coconut being a flavor some barrel aged beers have, along with vanilla, I use this coconut porter in a coconut cream pie, then added a few other flavor profiles to further enhance this beer pie and create a Chocolate Coconut Porter Cream Pie!
This pie will be a favorite of those who enjoy pairing beer and chocolate, along with a taste of the Islands!
