Cooking with Beer
Beer has been used in cooking for centuries. In the Middle Ages, people would have a lot of leftover bread, and they would use it to create beer soup or porridge. More recently, people have begun using beer in recipes to add flavor. If you are looking for a way to spice up your dishes, you should try incorporating some beer into them!
