Tank 7 Quiche

Beer Quiche

Tank 7 is our distinctly American twist on a classic Belgian-style farmhouse ale. It's beautifully complex, with a surge of fruity aromatics and big grapefruit hoppy notes before tapering to a dry, peppery finish. You may be reading this I'm supposed to put this in a quiche? Don't worry, all will be explained.

What's really special about Tank 7 is that peppery finish. The technique outlined below will have you reduce the beer (yes, the whole bottle!) with other aromatics that will result in a beautifully savory broth. Reducing the beer and cooking off the alcohol will leave you with a bready, peppery, and slightly fruity bunch of veggies that will punch up just the regular ol' quiche.

Crust (makes one):

1 ¼ cup flour
1 stick of butter
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
6-8 tbsp of ice water with a splash of apple cider vinegar


½ large onion
1 carrot
1 stick of celery
1 12oz bottle of Tank 7
2 tbsp butter
4 large eggs
1 cup milk
¼ cup heavy cream
¾ tsp salt, pepper
1 cup of sharp white cheddar cheese
Optional: bacon or ham (sprinkled on top)
Optional: herbs like chives, thyme, rosemary




  1. Optional Make the crust and let it rest in the fridge for at least 30 mins. If using store-bought crust skip this step.
  2. Add flour, salt, and sugar to a medium-sized bowl and mix. Cut butter into cubes and cut into flour until it resembles cornmeal. Add water until dough forms.
  3. Parbake the crust at 450 degrees for 8 minutes with weights (dried beans over aluminum foil) and 3 minutes without weights.
  4. The sauce. Finely dice your ½ onion, carrot, and celery and sauté for 8-10 minutes with the 2 tbsp of butter. Add the 12 ounces of Tank 7 and simmer for 30 minutes until reduced.
  5. The filling. Combine your eggs, milk, cream, cheese, and spices in a separate bowl.
  6. Once your pie is parbaked, fill the bottom with your onion/Tank 7 mixture. Top with your egg/milk/cheese mixture, and sprinkle in any extras on top (bacon, herbs, etc)
  7. Bake at 450 for 30 minutes and reduce to 400 for another 20 minutes or until golden brown. See tips for more.


Cool completely before slicing and enjoying. We'd also recommend you serve it with arugula salad and a cold Tank 7!
