The tartness of the cranberry complements the full-flavored Oud Bruin (a Flanders-style sour brown ale) from Deschutes Brewery. Adding in cherries and orange peel amplifies the flavor spectrum of the beer, producing a cranberry sauce that is addictive and serves as a wonderful compliment to a turkey. This sauce can also be used with a roasted goose, roasted duck, pork roast and great when used in a leftover sandwich!
In a medium-size saucepan, add the washed cranberries, dried cherries, sugar, honey, candied orange peel, vanilla bean (that have been split in half lengthwise), cinnamon stick, salt and Deschutes Brewery The Dissident Oud Bruin. Bring the mixture to a slow simmer over medium-low heat, stirring somewhat frequently. Once the sauce comes to a boil, cook until all the cranberries pop, about 10 - 15 minutes. Transfer the cranberry sauce to a serving bowl and let cool. This sauce can be made up to two days in advance, and refrigerated until ready to serve.
