    Nice! I use beer in cooking on a regular basis. Marinades, sauces, reductions, in soups/stews, in bread, etc. Of course I save plenty for me though!

    Sounds great!
    I try and utilize it where I can...stew, chili, baked goods, reductions, etc.

    That actually sounds like a good use for a chilli beer.

    My wife picked up some cheap KBC Pumpkin ale 2 weeks ago, it was not very good. HOWEVER, she used it for a batch of beer bread and it was amazing! The pumpkin spices came through in the bread just a wee bit, which was perfect.

    OK, here is the recipe.

    This is 5 portion recipe so adjust accordingly.

    Cook 1/2 split peas firm, don't overcook as they will get mushy in the sauce.

    Saute, in oil, one small or medium onion chopped. I like onions so I go with more. Saute until carmelized.

    Cook 1.5 cups brown or white rice. This is a vegan recipe so it calls for rice, but the traditional way is to use toasted bread.

    Make cheese sauce. 1/4 cup oil, 1/4 cup flour, 12oz. beer, 1/2 tsp salt, 1 tbsp tomato paste, dash of nutmeg, 1/4 tsp dry mustard, 1/2 tsp worcestershire sauce, pinch of dried chili peppers and 1 cup grated cheese.

    Make the roux, ( oil and flour ), let the flour get brown ( approx 2-3 min ) on a low flame, add the beer and all other ingredients (not cheese ) and stir until it gets thick. Add the cheese and cooked onions and pea's, keep stirring until smooth. You may need to add more beer if it gets too thick. Serve over the rice or bread, pour cold one and enjoy.

    This is a great cold weather meal.

    Note, using a blond beer makes the sauce lighter in color and a dark beer will make it darker.

    My kids use to love this meal.

    I only use it when steaming clams and other shellfish, i sometimes use as a substitute for white wine when it happens to be out of it.
    But steaming any type of shellfish in beer is freaken awesome, just yesterday i steamed a couple of white and Vietnamese clams in beer and they tasted terribly good !

    You meant vegetarian.

    Either way, sounds delicious.

    Yes, wheat beers with the clams / mussels. Stay a way from the hoppy ones if you are reducing volume, they get too bitter. Brown ales/ porters work well. I like stouts in my chilli.

    A great use for that cheap beer that someone inevitably brings to your house for a party and "lets you keep" when they leave.

    Pour how ever many beers are left into large pot, add as many brats as you can fit and boil until they are cooked.
    Then when you are ready to eat them throw them on the grill for browning/reheating.

    I've tried this with quality beer as well as garbage and it doesn't seem to make a difference in the final product. One caveat....do this outside, cooking bud light inside is somewhat nauseating.

    That sounds fantastic! I will have to try this at my next BBQ.

    I worked at a fondue joint during college - here's a beer base cheese for your gluttony. We do them around the holidays, and really no other time because they are so rich. Ideally you will make these in a double boiler, where boiling water is heating the cooking bowl. This allows the cheese to melt without burning.

    4 oz. beer
    4 oz. salsa
    1-3 cloves of garlic, minced in a little olive oil
    Hot Sauce
    ~ 8 ounces of 80/20 mix of sharp cheddar/emmenthaler swiss shredded and tossed in enough flower so that the shreds of cheese don't stick to one another.
    Cayenne pepper
    Black pepper
    hot sauce
    3 oz. small shrimp (optional)

    pour beer and salsa into the double boiler and wait for it to steam. Stir in garlic and stir in cheese, adding small quantities of cheese so that melting is easy and you can gauge consistency. Whip the cheese with a fork until smooth, then add hot sauce, red and black pepper to taste. Put the shrimp in last if you choose to include it in the recipe. If the pot is full and the cheese is too runny, you can add flour to thicken.

    Cubed up Granny Smith apples go incredibly well with this cheese, as do the other usual dipping subjects such as broccoli, carrots and bread. You can experiment, but I generally like to make the cheese with a malty beer (you get to finish the rest of the bottle while you're making the cheese) and pair it with a nice hoppy IPA.
