IPA Ceviche


As summer nears it’s inevitable end, it’s not the weather that I’ll miss the most. In fact the leather boots and chunky sweaters of colder days are starting to beckon. The produce, back yard grills, the smell of life and food floating on a late afternoon breeze will be lost in the dawning of fall.

This isn’t a recipe about avoiding the oven, or  grumbles of triple digit heat, it’s about enjoying August produce, paired with those Summer release beers and spending as much time as you can in the open air before we’re all forced to head inside, cook with squash, and drink stouts. Which I am already looking forward to.

IPA Ceviche


  • 1/4 cup fresh squeezed lemon
  • 1/4 cup fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 1 1/2 lb raw shrimp shell & tail removed, chopped
  • 1/2 cup IPA Beer
  • 1 yellow onion diced
  • 3 cups tomatoes diced
  • 1 large jalapeno diced, stem and seeds removed
  • 1/2 cup cilantro
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp red pepper sauce such as Sriracha


  • Add the lemon/lime juice and raw shrimp to a small bowl. (Shrimp will "cook" in the juice as it marinates.)
  • Mix beer, onion, tomato, and jalapeño in a large bowl, allow to marinate in the fridge for at least one hour.
  • Drain the vegetables and return to large bowl.
  • Once the shrimp have "cooked," drain and add them to the large bowl along with the salt and pepper sauce, toss to combine.
  • Serve cold with corn chips.

This looks fabulous! I’m clinging to summer for dear life.

Do you think I could substitute a white fish like halibut for the shrimp??

I think so! I haven’t done it myself, but it seems quite common.

Oh my goodness, my friend, this is incredible! Bring on the stout and fall weather, and boots! I’m sad to see the produce go, too, but love to watch the leaves fall!

I’ve always been afraid to make ceviche myself, but this sounds so good! Lemon and IPA, perfect combo.

I made this with a citrusy IPA that I brewed and it went excellent with this. My wife convinced me to add diced cucumber and I’m so glad I did! Yum! Thanks as always!

Your wife has good taste, obviously, cucumbers sounds amazing!

I was feeling a little bit bummed about the end of summer, but then over the weekend I picked up my first winter squash of the season from the farmers market and I got over it. I’m ready now!

I’m not a fan of IPA (unless I haven’t tried the right one), would you recommend any other beer?


Jackie August 22, 2012 um 1:04 pm

There are a lot of people who don’t like IPA’s, but most of them just haven’t had a good one. I would say to keep trying IPA’s, there is bound to be one that you love. You can also try a pilsner, but I would recommend using this as an opportunity to sample a new beer and see if you like it. There isn’t a strong presence of the IPA here because I call for so little and the beer isn’t reduced (reducing beer causes it’s bitterness to grow exponentially) and it’s balanced by the lemon. Big chain stores like BevMo and Total wine let you buy just one bottle so you don’t have to commit to a 6pack of something you may not like.

I love these guys style with unique flvoar and additives to their beer it’s the different things that work well in a beer that makes this totally free of competition or foul balls so-to-say if it works in a beer then why not use it right on!!

I made this ceviche and it was awesome. I used the Habenero Sculpin IPA and it was so, so, good in this!


Jackie July 5, 2015 um 10:32 am

I love that beer!


Irving February 1, 2016 um 12:19 pm

I’m wondering if I could sub out a Gose for IPA. While I love IPAs I love cooking with Gose style beers. Have you done this?


Jackie February 1, 2016 um 12:29 pm

Sounds like an interesting swap! Let me know how it goes 🙂
