Make your own Bloomington Brewing pickles


So cheers to the fun parts of 2015 and here’s to 2016 with a Rooftop IPA Pickles recipe! Bloomington Brewing Company Master Chef Michael Fox scaled a batch down for NUVO readers, with a serving suggestion:

“We use Rooftop IPA and serve the pickles alongside our strombolis and BLTs.”


2 large seedless cukes

1 qt of white or cider vinegar

3 cups Rooftop IPA

1 cup water

2 cups sugar

2 tbsp pickling spice

1 tsp red chile flakes

1/4 cup plus 1 tbsp kosher salt

Bring all to a boil and simmer 5 min. Cool completely before adding sliced cucumbers. Make sure all cukes are covered by brine. Refrigerate. Ready to eat in two days.
