    Sure, the obvious one is chili. I don't use water, only beer as liquid. It has a marked effect on the flavor (and for the record it does not result in a 'beery' flavor). I have also made a yummy beer soup (I know it doesnt sound yummy but trust me it is). Beer also makes an excellent base to boil any kind of sausage you can think of.
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    I've got a few recipes at home I could dig out...is there a particular type of dish you're looking for? Are you just trying to get rid of some unwanted beer or are you looking at "themed" dinner?

    There is always the infamous beer-butt chicken...

    On today's trip my parents only packed light beer.... YUCK!!!! Moosehead light... How can Canadians even have the guts to: a) Kill a decent beer like Moosehead and b ) Export that crap!

    I only thought US beers were f*ing close to water.... I was wrong (ok actually we do have here some Bud style beers... but that's just like mineral water with beer taste)
    Moosehead??? Wow I used to drink that in college, I remember that being a very "skunky" beer...

    Last night I enjoyed a 40 oz of Labatt Blue, 3 shots of vodka and 5 PBR's. Don't get mad at me either beer snobs
    No way, both excellent brews in my book. :drunk:

    How about the easiest thing possible to cook with beer? A Lowcountry shrimp boil. Fresh shrimp, corn on the cob, sausage, red potatos, water and beer. Just boil, serve and wash it down with more beer. Mmmmmm.......

    Ok. BEER QUOTES:

    Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel
    ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers
    in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't
    drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams
    would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that
    I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish
    and worry about my liver." --by Jack Handy

    The purpose of the factory beers (Bud, Miller etc) is to convince the world that American beer sucks, so that we can keep the good stuff to ourselves. :nana:

    By the way, these emicons keep getting funner. I love the dead horse.

    I&#39;m not a particular fan of Chelsea, just can&#39;t stand Man U .


    Sounds like you and I have something in common. I&#39;m not rooting for Chelsea to pull off the quadruple though.

    I only tossed out a couple of UK beers that I figured you&#39;d be able to get in Colorado. The ones Noj mentioned are all fine ales. I&#39;ll put in my vote for Fuller&#39;s "London Pride"...I love that stuff. Not sure what would be available in your neck of the woods. I actually enjoy a good cider when I&#39;m watching footie.[/b][/quote]
    Good to find more lovers of the beautiful game....I&#39;m not rooting for Chelsea either, but it is refreshing to find a top manager who is fairly honest about his team and doesn&#39;t believe the whole world and their dog is against them&#33;

    London Pride - very nice, but unfortunately not that available in the part of England where I am now. Drove past a billboard for Marstons Pedigree this morning, which reminded me how much I like that beer too ( the power of advertising&#33.

    Like the new french smilie.... :surrender: , and especially its name&#33;

    Sorry about that. Allergic or Jewish? Not that it matters because, either way, you can still enjoy the beer portion of the recipe. :cheers:

    its shellfish, shrimp, lobbies etc. I think the basic rule is anything that eats crap

    fish with skin can be eaten.

    I don&#39;t keep Kosher for the most part, its the allergy apparently to ALL things from the water so I avoid it all.

    Thanks, I think it is all coming back to me now...fish with skin...hmmm I would think sushi would be alright then...I guess thats probably making you green considering the allergy...I could not keep kosher, there is no way, I like bacon bits on my salad
    When I was younger and went to summer camp (Jewish camp) it was a kosher camp and it was strange for me to adjust...had little choice so I did just fine but different nonetheless.

    Kosher fish must have both scales and fins. Shellfish such as shrimp and lobster are prohibited, as well as some fresh fish such as swordfish, sturgeon, catfish and eel

    Looked it up

    I dont keep Kosher as much as Id like, Im not giving up my Bacon cheese burger&#33;

    I had a good red lager last night at Bilbo?s Pizza. I am not sure it is a local chain or regional.

    It was not too thin, smooth, and great flavor.

    Anyone try anything from New Holland Brewery? :cheers:

    This year I am going to make it a point to visit all of the micro-breweries in Michigan&#33;

    I will keep a log and pictures on the regular never ending beer thread&#33;
    Invest in the things today, that provide the returns tomorrow.

    I love all beer, but I have to say that there is nothing like a good homebrew. Mmm...frothy.... :cheers:

    I bought a 6 pack of Dogfish Head Raison D&#39;Etre and a 4-pack of 90 Minute IPA last week.

    I would have to say that that 90 min is one of the best beers I have ever had. Dogfish Head is slowly becoming my favorite microbrewery.

    As for cooking with beer, the best recipe by far is "Beer Can Chicken"
    The recipe below yields excellent results:
