would it be possible to make everything for this and then freeze the pie to cook for later? or would that ruin it?


I don't drink much beer... can anyone give me some tips on what to look for and/or recommend one?


I liked this a lot! I used a homemade crust that turned out really  dry & crumbly, due to operator error (too much hurrying/ not enough measuring!), but even with that difficulty the dish was still delicious... for leftovers, I topped the (unfortunately dry) top crust with Awesome Mushroom Gravy (from this site), & very nearly had to lick the bowl (ok, ok, I licked the bowl... but only when no one was looking). I will definitely make this again; I think the filling could make a great beefy-type stew, also, with a little more broth/ less thickening... Very nice flavors, especially with a heavy garlic- & pepper- seasoning hand. Yummy! Thanks for the recipe.
