Brown Ale Caramel Corn: Resistance is futile

Brown Ale Caramel Corn. It would be best just to get it over with.

Don’t blame me. Blame my e-mail. Blame Betty Crocker. Blame the season.
All I know is that it’s not my fault that shortly after falling for a beautiful picture of an 18 Layer Red Velvet Cake, to the point that I printed it out and shared it with Marnie, I fell down a rabbit hole and bumped my head against Brown Ale Caramel Corn.
Now it’ll be weeks before I get it out of said head.
Actually, based on past experience, it’s best if I just take this recipe home and make it as soon as possible to see if I can get it out of my system.
That’s a solid rationalization to start with.
Here are a few more:
Popcorn is a whole grain. Peanuts have protein, even beer is good for you in moderation. It only calls for 1/2 a cup. That’s the very definition of moderation …
So, here’s my story: I was walking around, minding my own business, a cake caught my eye and I fell into a hole, hit my head and woke up with an overwhelming desire to make beer-sweetened popcorn.
It could have happened to anyone. Seriously. Why are you laughing?
