A Summer Classic with a Twist: Beer Guacamole

With a splash of lime and a lot of fresh flavor, guacamole is the champion food of summer. On the patio, by the pool, or at the ocean, this big bowl of green goodness is summertime happiness. 

In true Hi-Wire Brewing fashion, we’re adding a twist on this classic (because we’ll look for any excuse to get beer involved.) So, we’re infusing our guacamole with Hi-Wire beer. Sound weird? Sound crazy? Well, just wait until you dip a chip and try a bite.

How to Jazz Up Guacamole

If you’re like us, playing on the creative side is always a go. And inventing new recipes is kind of our thing — definitely when it comes to beer, and we won’t turn down a chance to play around with food either. 

If you’re getting a little tired of your guacamole recipe (the one you’ve made a hundred times,) we’ve got you covered with some ways to jazz it up next time. For a flavor boost, add diced mangos for a taste of the tropics, crab meat, or cotija cheese to add creaminess. And if you really want to play on the wild side, add beer. 

Hi-Wire Beer Guacamole Recipe

Attention: this is not a recipe where your guacamole is swimming in beer. Think of it more as a little spark of flavor.


  • 3 ripe avocados
  • ½ small yellow onion, finely diced
  • ¼ cup sun-dried tomatoes
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, finely diced and seeds removed
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • ½ can of beer
  • ½ teaspoon salt


Slice the avocados in half, remove the pits, and place in a mixing bowl. Mash the avocados, add the onion, cilantro, jalapeño pepper, garlic, lime juice, and salt.

In a small bowl, mix the sun-dried tomatoes with beer. For beer choice, we’d recommend a pilsner. And two of our favorites are Hi-Wire Lager and Leisure Time Lager for their bright, crisp flavors. Once you’ve mixed them together, microwave for 1-2 minutes. Drain off the beer, chop up the sun-dried tomatoes, and add them to your guacamole.
