My dad owned a bar. On Saturdays, he’d sell hot dogs boiled in beer. It’s not exactly cooking with beer but those dogs were damn tasty. I’d eat a couple and be drunk until school on Monday. I was a super lightweight as an 8-year-old.
Dad sold the bar but I’ll still occasionally sneak beer into recipes. I’m for damn sure picking up a copy of Cooking With Beer.
