Extremely embarrassed ... need HELP!!!

I have a 1/2 empty beer that I can't finish. Before I'm asked to hand in my Canadian citizenship, I need some suggestions for what I can use the remaining amount for.

Any ideas???

Say you have to pee... go to bathroom with beer, empty beer in toilet.

If you ask your wife to finish it for you, you'll need to turn in your man card, too.

Marinade
Snail/slug bait (pour in shallow dish set at ground level - snails crawl in, get drunk & die).

You've obviously never met a Canadian before. We don't pour beer down the toilet.

My man card is still in good standing. No worries.

The slug bait is a pretty good idea, but I'd need a 24 pack to kill off the ones in our front yard alone.

You'd be surprised at how many will crawl into the dish. It can get pretty disgusting.

This one looks pretty good - beer can chicken. It only takes half a beer.

Save the beer overnight and use it tomorrow.

Hey that's not a bad idea. Have you ever tried this before? Is there a concern with the ink getting absorbed by the chicken when it's heated up?

I have never tried it, but there are hundreds of recipes out there where you sit a fowl on top of a can of beer. I figure it can't be bad if the chefs on the Food Network show it on TV.

Edit: I think Tom Stormcrowe might have done this on his BBQ.

Both... but mostly the avatar. I had a really bad crush as a toddler with the genie.

I've eaten a meatloaf with a dash of beer added in before.

Wait ... if you are sprinkling beer on your meatloaf just before you eat it, couldn't you just take a bite, then chase it down with a swig of beer? Same effect? ... or does the 'before' need to be clarified?

I know your pain brother! Pour it into the compost, the yeast activates the bugs that make the fine dirt! (Now what do I do with this half glass of Merlot?).


Cheers,

I do this fairly often, it's wonderful. Never heard anyone complain about the paint...

I can send you some armadillos to take care of the slugs in the yard but I think wasting beer would be considered alcohol abuse and that is not acceptable. Drink it!
