Grilling Recipes and YYC Beer Pairings to Try All Summer!

The weather is warmer, the days are longer, and we are now able to gather in the backyard to spend time with family and friends. Summer is the perfect time to try new recipes – especially when they are made on the barbecue. It is also a good time to try new beers from local YYC breweries with these recipes! 

At East Hills Bottle Depot we are all about trying new food and sharing it with our family and friends to create that East Hills Hype! Whether you are having a family reunion, a backyard bonanza or just having a Sunday night family dinner, these recipes and drinks will have you craving them long after summer is over. 


If you are looking for something light and easy for that Sunday night dinner vibe, we suggest this easy make shrimp cobb salad. This unique spin on a classic recipe is sure to take your tastebuds to the next level! Pale ale is a nice light beer that pairs well with shrimp and salad, so we suggest checking out the Star Cheek IPA from Tool Shed Brewing with this meal! 


We also suggest this fresh take on a corn on the cob recipe that will leave your party guests wanting more. This easy to make grilled corn with chipotle lime butter is simple to make and requires little preparation. The grilled corn is packed with a tender, crunch filled bite, perfectly paired with the chipotle lime butter, giving it a zesty kick that pairs well with burgers, salad, or fish! The Beltline Blonde from Last Best Brewing is the perfect beer pairing for this zesty recipe. We also recommend the Tropical IPA from Eighty Eight Brewing which will have your taste buds running wild with flavours of mango, pineapple and cotton candy. 


We know a summer BBQ wouldn’t be complete without an awesome burger recipe like these grilled chicken ranch burgers. Our favourite thing about this recipe is the mixture of flavours such as the ranch dressing, bread crumbs and parmesan cheese which are mixed into the ground chicken. It pairs perfectly with a creamy potato salad and a cold, sweet-tasting scrapple cider from Cold Garden Beverage Company.

To perfect your summer tastebuds, the salt and pepper rib eye is sure to impress any of your dinner guests, significant other, family members or friends! It is a very simple recipe but it can be spiced up with scallions that have been tossed in olive oil, salt and given a quick char. 

Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram and tag us in your pictures of the backyard grilling recipes and YYC beers you try, and you might be featured on our page! Don’t forget to check out our website so you can return your summer empties to East Hills Bottle Depot!
