I love these duck rillettes with beer! The sweet/salty mix is perfectly balanced and they will fit perfect for your picnic or brunches!


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons rendered duck fat
  • 1 yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 4 confit duck legs (total 560g), deboned and shredded
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary leaves finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1/2 cup Raftman beer by Unibroue
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
  • Salt and ground pepper


  • In a pan at medium heat, add the olive oil and 1 tablespoon of the duck fat. Cook onion and garlic for 3-4 minutes, until soft, while stirring often. 
  • Add the duck and the rest of the duck fat, maple syrup, rosemary, wine, beer and parsley. Season with salt and pepper then mix well. 
  • Continue cooking for 10 minutes or until all liquid has evaporated. Stir often. 
  • Remove from heat and let cool down for 15 minutes. Spread into jars and place in fridge for at least 2 hours. Serve with a fresh bread baguette!

Our wine stewards suggest

Dominus Vobiscum Double, Microbrasserie Charlevoix

Duck confit, maple syrup and smoked malt beer will be delighted with the Dominus Vobiscum Double, a Belgian dark beer strong in alcohol, rich with notes of candied fruits, port and rock candy. Despite its high alcohol content, it still offers a thin body that will contrast with the fat of the rillettes! It will easily replace candied fruits to go with the rillettes.
