Recipes: Croûte de Pécan Bière (A Pecan Pie Ale)

  This is a recipe I wanted to post that I consider a tip of the hat to my southern Louisiana roots. Pecan Pie is served especially in the fall with coffee as the perfect end to large family meals. With very few "pecan pie beer" out in the craft beer world (none that i like) I decided to give it a shot. Now you can too, so go brew it up, judge for yourself & enjoy with family around a dinner table!
