Beer Battered Fries Beer Battered Fries John

The first time I had Beer Battered Fries, was at a bar/restaurant in Huntington Beach, CA. After an interview in Irvine, I met up with my friend Set and Gary for lunch. Set took us to this place for the sole purpose of trying their Beer Battered Fries. I still remember this day like it was yesterday. In fact this was in July of 2001, exactly 9 years ago. With a little help from Google I found the restaurant and sure enough they still have Beer Battered Fries on the menu, the place is called Huntington Beach Beer Company. Now I can't remember how the food was, but I can say that I don't see Beer Battered Fries on menus very often. This Beer Battered Fries Recipe isn't the same as the one they have at HB Beer Company but it is good. Choosing the type of beer you use in your batter makes this recipe personal to each individual. What type of beer would you use? Check the comment section to see what I used.


  • 5-6 Russet Potatoes
  • 1 Cold bottle of your favorite Beer
  • 2 Whole Eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 cup Corn Starch
  • 1 Tbsp Salt
  • 1 Tbsp Fresh Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 Tbsp Ground Cayenne Pepper (Optional)
  • Milk
  • Extra Flour
  • Kosher Salt
  • Oil for frying (Peanut Oil recommended)


  1. Peel and slice your potatoes into fries
  2. Rinse until water runs clear
  3. Place fries into large bowl submerged in milk and place in fridge (this can be done the day before)
  4. Combine flour, baking powder, corn starch, salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper and mix
  5. Beat the eggs and add to dry mix
  6. Gradually mix in your favorite beer until thick batter is combined
  7. Prepare a baking sheet with a cooling rack
  8. Strain the fries
  9. Dunk the fries into the batter and place onto cooling rack
  10. Heat the oil to 375°F and fry for about 3-5 minutes
    (You may have to drop in the fries by hand to keep from clumping)
  11. Remove to a baking sheet covered with paper towel and season with kosher salt to taste

If you haven't noticed in the video, I used Coors Light. Not my #1 choice but that's what I had at the moment. Would love to try this again with New Castle or another dark beer.
