Beeramisu -
Yep, it’s a real thing, y’all. Beeramisu. Tiramisu, except made with beer. Local Good People Brewing’s Coffee Oatmeal Stout Beer to be specific.

I’ve been wanting to make this tiramisu all summer, but I’ve been so lazy about baking recently. It is 100% the heat’s fault. No-bake desserts have been totally saving me, so I figured I needed to make this before the summer is over.

(Let’s be real, in Alabama summer lasts until Christmas.)

I have a little bit of a tiramisu obsession. One of the other tiramisu recipes I’ve posted here on the blog uses my fave local cold brew coffee, Icebox, which I’ve been posting a lot of lately.

I first came across a recipe called Beeramisu when I worked at My immediate reaction was omg wuuuut. I absolutely love taking classic recipes and putting a fun, modern twist on them (see doughnut tiramisu), so this past weekend I felt like it was time to spread the #locallove and finally make this thang.

I should warn you that I got a little cocoa-happy while shooting these photos. Please do not put this much cocoa powder on top of your Beeramisu. A light dusting will be fine. 😛

Also, if you aren’t in Alabama and don’t have access to GPB’s Coffee Oatmeal Stout, any stout beer will work. You’ll miss out on a really fun flavor and some pretty sweet typography, but your Beeramisu will still taste good. 🙂

for the filling
  • 8-oz mascarpone cheese
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • ½ tsp coffee extract (or vanilla)
  • 1 tsp espresso powder
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
for the layers
  • 2 cups Coffee Oatmeal Stout Beer from Good People Brewing (or your fave stout beer)
  • 2 (7-oz) packages of ladyfingers (found on the cookie aisle of the grocery story)
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
optional whipped cream
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tbsp powdered sugar
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
for the filling
  1. Combine mascarpone, powdered sugar, and coffee extract in a large bowl and mix on medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth.
  2. In a separate bowl, or the bowl of a stand mixer, add whipping cream and espresso powder. Wait for espresso powder to dissolve, then whip on medium high speed until stiff peaks form.
  3. Gently fold whipped cream into the mascarpone mixture until all ingredients are incorporated.
whipped cream
  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer, or a medium-sized bowl with a hand-held mixer, whip cream on medium-high speed until soft peaks form. With mixer running, add powdered sugar and vanilla. Beat until stiff peaks form.
  1. Line a 9-inch springform pan with plastic wrap or foil. (This will make it MUCH easier to remove the tiramisu from the pan later on.)
  2. Pour beer into a bowl. Dip one ladyfinger at a time for a second or two on both sides, then lay in the the prepared pan until the bottom of the pan is covered.
  3. Spread half of filling over lady fingers. Dust with a thin, even layer of cocoa powder.
  4. Repeat layers--ladyfingers, filling, and cocoa powder. Top with a third layer of lady fingers.
  5. Pipe whipped cream on top of tiramisu and dust with a final layer of cocoa powder.
  6. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for 4-6 hours, or overnight. (If you don't want to mess up the whipped cream or the top of your tiramisu, you can cover the pan with a large plate or lid.)
  7. Remove from pan and cut into slices to serve!
