Asian Ginger Brussels Sprouts

Hey, y’all – Happy Day 17 of Blogmas! Blogmas is a series that I am bringing to the blog this year (and hopefully in subsequent years) that will provide y’all with a new recipe every day of December through Christmas. How fun is that? Today I’m excited to be sharing my recipe for asian style brussels sprouts. The best part? They have a Kentucky twist, as the ginger profile is achieved via the incorporation of Winchester-made Ale-8-One.

Asian Style Brussels Sprouts


1 lb. Brussels sprouts, halved + chopped

1 tbsp. soy sauce

1/8 c. Ale-8-One

1.5 tsp. sesame oil

1 tsp. red pepper flakes

3 tbsp. honey (I prefer to use hot honey)

1 tsp. minced garlic

Black pepper, to taste



  1. Heat extra virgin olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add Brussels sprouts (halved – or chopped if you prefer).
  2. Cook brussels sprouts for 5 minutes and then add in Ale-8-One and minced garlic. Cook for another 3-5 minutes.
  3. Add in soy sauce, sesame oil, red pepper flakes, and black pepper. Cook until tender and/or the Brussels sprouts have reached your desired level of crispiness. JC’s tip: right before my sprouts are done, I typically turn the heat up to high to rid of some of the liquid + increase the crispiness of the sprouts.
  4. Top with honey (or hot honey) + serve warm!
  5. Enjoy!

About Ale 8 One

Launched in July of 1926, Ale-8-One is the only Kentucky-invented soft drink still in existence. It was invented by G. L. Wainscott and was named via one of America’s first slogan contests at the Clark County Fair. “A Late One” – the winning entry – was a pun adopted for its witty description. From that, a Kentucky legacy transpired.
