Here are 2 fun tips on what else beer can be used for:
1) Turn out fluffier pancakes and waffles – If you like flapjacks on the puffy side, sub your favorite lager for the liquid called for in the recipe. You’ll be amazed at how light and airy they turn out- and how the flavor gets kicked up a notch! Also try using beer when making Matzo balls or baking bread.
2) Cook Juicy Chicken- Prop a whole chicken over a half-full can of beer (the can goes in the cavity) and season with salt, pepper and spices. Then place it vertically on a hot grill or a pan in the oven – the beer evaporates into the bird as it cooks, creating a supermoist chicken. DELISH!

But that would require not drinking it. LOL
Thats why you save a little on the side 😉
The pancake one I THINK I heard about but have never tried. Might be time to do so. The beer can chicken is GREAT.
Great tips. Thanks.
Thank You ; )
Love the site. Do you think the beer can chicken recipe will work for turkey as well?
I have never tried it with a turket but im sure that it would work as well…if you try it with the turkey let me know 😉
In addition to lagers, lots of other beers work well in pancakes and waffles: raspberry wit, blood orange hefeweizen, and even mocha porter!
Thanks for sharing will have to try them 😉
Gotta love some YMMY beer 😉
