Sometimes, things in the universe just seem to align.Whether you call it fate, destiny, or coincidence, it happened today. Enter Thirsty Thursday (aka nostalgic homage #tbt to our college days) and National Beer Day. Cheers!

New England has been all kinds of hot and then cold these last couple weeks, and while we’re once again patiently(ish) awaiting warmer temps, we figure we might as well take advantage of what we’ve deemed soup weather with this 30 minute beer cheese soup, via The Wanderlust Kitchen.

If you’re not into Guinness (and that’s okay, a lot of people aren’t) you’ll at least probably be into this chocolate cake made with Guinness. This would be the perfect use for dark stout beer that’s left over from a party. Recipe and photo via The Hungry Housewife.
