we're Flippin' it better this Shrove Tuesday with beer!

haTnks to a dash of our Pilsner Lager in place of milk, pancakes are flipping better this year – it’s official and Comedian Tom Price agrees.

Want to see for yourself how pancakes are flipping better in 2022, thanks to the addition of our Pilsner Lager? Join Comedian Tom Price on his socials (@thepricetom) as he makes pancake batter with beer and demonstrates some fabulous flipping action.

Our legendary Pilsner Lager is a well-balanced, lightly hopped beer that adds a heavenly malty flavour to pancakes. The bubbles aerate the batter and along with the yeast, this makes for a lighter, fluffier and easier-to-flip pancake.

It pairs beautifully with bacon (vegan or the real deal) and maple syrup, tastes dreamy with milk, cream or ice-cream and for a savoury twist, cheese (dairy or vegan) is a match made in heaven. 

For an added health benefit, you can also our CBD Lager in your pancakes. 

Comedian Tom Price says “As someone who is tirelessly competitive I’ve always loved pancakes because I genuinely believe no one flips them or makes them quite as well as me. The news that I can now bring beer to this festival of eating and competing has left me thrilled and hungry. Like I did when I grew up, it’s time to say goodbye to milk and hello to beer. May the best tosser win.”

make that beer batter better E1 brew co and try it

If you want to try the pancakes for yourself, here’s the recipe that Tom will be using:


140g plain flour

100g caster sugar

1 tsp baking powder

Half tsp salt

Pinch of cinnamon

236 ml of E1 Brew Co. Pilsner Lager

1 egg or half a mashed ripe banana

2 tablespoons olive oil (plus 1tsp for cooking)

Half a teaspoon vanilla extract (or vanilla paste/powder)


Mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl.

In a separate bowl, beat the eggs lightly (or use mashed banana) and add the beer, oil and vanilla.

Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the wet liquid, stirring in until well mixed – don’t overdo it though, because this will make the mixture glutenous.

Heat a non-stick frying pan on medium heat, add a teaspoon of olive oil and pour half a ladle full of the batter into the pan.

Cook for a few minutes and when you see bubbles appear and the edges cook and turn golden brown, flip the pancake and cook the other side until lightly browned.

Serve with your choice of toppings – maple syrup goes well with the pancakes, but for a savoury treat, try some vegan bacon too.
