Cider beer makes sense for cider stew. And, this apple cider beef stew is off the charts rich in earthy tastes and a hint of sweet that you have no idea where it comes from. Well, unless you know that there’s a delicious craft brew in this dish1 

Apple Cider Beer

Now here’s a disclaimer. I’m not a beer drinker. Never have been. But, that was until I took a sip of this hard cider apple brew. OMG! Divine. Smooth and beautiful on the palate.

Tasty Beef Stew Recipe

No doubt this tasty beef stew recipe will become a family favorite. I love serving it over a bed of greens. Why dirty another bowl with salad, and those greens wilt under the heat of the stew once poured over them. Top with some shavings of parmesan cheese, which melts like a snowflake. Have plenty of crusty warm baguette bread!
