During our trip to Orlando last year, one evening was spent eating at Raglan Road. All of the food we tried was delicious, but the Guinness Reduction Dipping Sauce that was served with the Brown Bread was especially memorable. Here is a recap of our dinner and other places we visited in Downtown Disney.
When we got back home, I searched for a recipe and found that it was actually easy to recreate. The dipping sauce is just a Guinness reduction mixed with equal parts olive oil. For the reduction, equal parts Guinness and sugar are simmered together until reduced by half. I found mixed recipes regarding the sugar. Some used granulated sugar and others used brown sugar. I chose brown sugar just for that extra depth of flavor.

Guinness Reduction Dipping Sauce
- 2 cups Guinness
- 2 cups brown sugar
- Olive oil for serving
In a medium saucepan, whisk together Guinness and brown sugar over medium heat. Once it begins to bubble, reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until reduced by half. It will take about 60 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature. It will thicken further as it cools.
Serve with equal parts olive oil. Place remaining in an airtight container (minus the olive oil) and store in refrigerator.
