@bleusteel:  You could experiment with different flavored beer batters for fish or chicken!

you can use beer in:

dough – pizza crust for example

batter for fish/chicken etc

in stew – a nice hearty stout-lamb/beef stew is a great winter meal or even a beef-barley soup

I would bet you can braise with beer the same way you’d use wine, this might be interesting to experiment with

Beer is amazing in Chile, especially darker beers. Just pour some into the crock pot when you mix in the other seasonings.

I also use it to season chicken sometimes, which works well with either white wine or beer. Just brush it on with maybe some salt and pepper, or whatever seasonings you wish.

Third option, send some to me!

Chocolate stout cake, beer bread, beer battered fish, and stew are all things we have made before.

Additionally, we braise onions in beer for burgers etc- so good! Slice rings medium-thick, throw them in a pan, and add maybe 2/3c of beer. Braise over medium heat, adding more beer if necessary, until the onions are tender and caramelized.

Well, the weather’s a bit warm for it now, but a stew is a fantastic place for a stout!

This is the one I’ve done: http://www.simplyrecipes.com/recipes/irish_beef_stew/

It’s delicious, especially with some garlic mashed potatoes.  I like a pilsner in my chili, it’s not TOO heavy and it gives it that extra acidic taste. 

Oh, but for summer – stout and ice cream float!  Vanilla is classic, or you can use a dark chocolate ice cream for a richer flavor, or a dulce du leche for that caramel-y taste.  A 1-1 ratio usually works pretty well.

We use beer as a basting sauce for chicken breasts on the grill. Let the chicken sit in a beer bath for 30 minutes, toss them on the grill, and spray (or pour) fresh beer on them as they cook. The chicken stays moist on the inside, but nice and crispy on the outside.

I love kielbassa and sauerkraut cooked in a crock pot with beer – certainly not healthy, but it’s delicious.
