  • The term beer includes ale, stout, Guinness, lager , bitter and pale ale

  • If you can't drink it - don't use it in cooking

  •  Add a splash of the original alcohol to soups, stews and casseroles just before serving to reinforce the flavour

  • Beer goes particularly well with beef and ham  or bacon

  • Add leftover beer to batter, stocks, soups and gravies

  • Buy a couple of tins of beer and keep in your store cupboard for use in the kitchen

  • You can use all types of beer or ale to cook with

  • Don't throw away beer that's gone flat - use it for cooking

  • Because alcohol freezes at a lower temperature than other liquids, excessive use in frozen desserts is not advisable
