3 Ways to Cook with Beer
All beer buffs worth their hops know beer adds rich, earthy flavor to all kinds of food. Our Beer-Braised BBQ Shrimp calls for lager, which is the most widely consumed beer. Lager has a slightly tangy flavor that works well with fish or spicy curry dishes.

You can use beer in place of water, wine, or broth in sauces and marinades, as we did in our Beer-Braised Short Ribs, or as a poaching liquid.
Flavor Tip: Brown the meat before braising for heartier taste.

Whatever the dish, you can't go wrong using a beer you enjoy drinking straight. Our moist Stout Chocolate Cake calls for dark beer or stout, which is known for its chocolate and roasted coffee notes and dry intensity.
