    This topic came up recently, and I was persuaded to start a conversation about it, here!

    When you have 'leftover' beers, (is there really such a thing? icon_wink.gif ) how do you use them up?

    Save them for a party?
    Pass them off to your neighbors?
    Cook with them?
    Choke them down, 'cause you don't like to be wasteful?

    Step right up, and share your secrets for 'leftover' beer!

    My hubby is having fun trying new craft beers. Some of them don't please his palate and we have the rest of the six pack gathering dust. What do you do with them? My frugal self hates to simply toss them. icon_rolleyes.gif

    My questions are:
    How do you decide what kind of beer will be successful in a recipe?
    If he didn't like the taste as a beer, can the beer still be used in a recipe?

    I think it depends on why he did not like them. If it's too bitter, I think those are a bit harder to use. But if the flavor is too light, or too sweet, or too fruity or of that nature, then a lot of those would work well in breads or soups/stews, as marinades.

    Hi Alli!

    Leftover beers have a bit of a limited shelf life...but there's room for all sorts of beers in recipes...be it pancakes, beer battered fish, "beer canned" chicken or whatever...

    Just drinking "beers" means trying different things...witness this past week, with St Patrick's Day, and the idea of pouring a flat head of Harp Lager into a tall glass, then pouring a "Guinness" over a spoon to "float" on top of the Harp, to give a perfect "Black and Tan"...admittedly, its "acquired taste"...but its in keeping with European "pubs" as opposed North American "bars" (that are admittedly sort of "alcoholic filling stations") but taking the good time and trouble to evolve and develope a "taste"...

    Organic pest killer? Have been using it for years to lure slugs and thus to hasten their untimely deaths! icon_biggrin.gif

    Beer bread is a must! I have made many beer bread recipes that use Guinness and the bread turns out unbelievably moist.


    3 cups self-rising flour
    1/2-3/4 cup sugar
    12oz beer (I used Guinness)

    Bake at 300F for 1.5 hours, baste top of bread with butter every 30min.

    My father liked to use the left over beer to make beer biscuits.

    are we talking about unopened beers here? If so, definitely save them for a future party or whatever. No sense in being wasteful. Although, a cool thing you can do with old beers is use them as bug traps in your garden. Just set out a cup of beer in the garden and bugs, especially slugs, will pop in for a drink, get drunk and not make it back out again to eat your zucchini! Sad for the slugs, good for your salad! icon_lol.gif

    just ran across this thread and got me to thinkin about a dish I haven't made in years. Check this one out "Immoral" Sandwich Filling (Loose Meat) #58224. If I can get DH to share his amber beer, it's the best.

    Thanks for sharing that recipe, BB; I'd always wondered about loose meat sandwiches! Now, I know! icon_biggrin.gif

    Here is yet another Rajas Con Cerveza (Pepper Strips With Beer and Cheese) 369701 While I opened a can of beer for this recipe am think leftover beer would also work very well.
