Growing up in the Midwest, Streeter McClure spent most of his childhood far away from the kitchen. The charismatic young man preferred chasing girls, riding his dirt bike and sneaking pulls from his father's Coors. It wasn't until his college years at the University of Oklahoma that Streeter learned when income is limited, adding a beer to chili can stretch the recipe and enhance the flavor.
Streeter was introduced to the art of making beer during his college job at Coaches Micro Brewery in Norman, Okla. World famous brew master Brian Smittle taught Streeter how to properly combine water, barley and hops. After graduating with a degree in business, Streeter worked as a bartender, ski instructor and even a U.S. Senate intern before relocating to Denver and launching a company that designs and fabricates jewelry safes. His company still going strong, this young entrepreneur and "man about town" is as comfortable in the board room as he is at a bar.
It is no surprise that as a single man balancing a business with an active social life, Streeter would get hungry and very thirsty. While he is admittedly no culinary expert, one could certainly classify Streeter as a beer connoisseur.
Combining his two loves—beer and entertaining—Streeter had found yet another career, this time cooking with beer and developing his own recipes, and sharing them with the public. Several years after college and numerous rough drafts later, The Single Man's Guide to Cooking with Beer was born. It is a compilation of well-tested, easy to prepare, delicious recipes that are guaranteed to impress guests while satisfying even the most refined palates.
