With the rise of craft brewers in the country, Filipinos are enjoying a wider range of beer options. Though it’s hard to stray from pale ales and lagers, it’s nice to have something darker and maltier (such as stouts; Happy International Stout Day!) once in a while—especially if you can find ’em.

Fine, these pumpkin beer brownies are more pumpkin than they are beer. But we recommend making it if you happen to have a stray brownie mix in your pantry, and a few leftover bottles of brew in the fridge. That said, feel free to make your own brownies from scratch, too. The darker the beer you use, the deeper the flavor. That, with the subtle pumpkin flavor, you get an over-all not-so-sweet hearty dessert.
