We’re not the first bakery to create a Beef & Beer Pie, but we challenge you to find a more delicious version than this steak and stout creation!
Recently we teamed up with local craft brewer Willie the Boatman to create our very own, mouth-watering Beef and Beer Pie made with Willie’s small batch Oatmeal Stout. The limited-edition pie was initially launched on Father’s Day weekend in a Pop Up Pie-Shop within Willie the Boatman’s St Peter’s brewery, with only 300 pies being handmade at the Bakehouse.
You might have seen us on Channel 7’s Weekend Sunrise on Father’s Day, feeding the hungry presenters, guests and news crew with all of our pastry creations, and introducing the Beef & Beer pie to a happy audience of Dad’s in the studio!
The pie filling was created using Willie the Boatman’s Oatmeal Stout; an intense, fruity dark beer which was a favourite of staff and customers at the brewery this winter. The filling also contains premium Aussie beef steak, plus carrots, mushroom, onions and herbs, all slow-cooked to aromatic perfection.
Unlike the normal Shepherd’s pasty shape, this limited edition pie is made in the traditional pie (tinned) shape, to make it easier to devour with one hand. We really have thought of everything!
The Beef & Beer Pie was such a huge hit, that in spite of being originally a limited edition offering, we’ve since decided to make it available after Father’s Day. So can now grab a couple both hot (ready to eat) and cold in take-home-and-bake packs of four, from all of our markets and stores.
We’ll drink to that!
