Since you're making chili, beer works well in chili. Add a bit to your chili, and let it cook in a bit. Then if required, add a bit more.

Historically, beer has been used to help leaven breads and batters, because of the yeast in it, and has been used as a braising liquid for meats, espcially beef, before adding to stews, chili, etc. Beer, according to a respected foodie freind of mine, is a great poaching liquid for mild fish, and shellfish.

Where it is used as a braising, or poaching liquid, it is often thrown away after the food has been cooked.

As mentioned previous to my post, beer is used in a host of cheese soups and sauces as well.

Hope that helps.

Me, I detest the flavor of beer, except in chile.

If you have a nursing home nearby, see if they might like it for a supervised happy hour!

I've made brats with onions in beer. I used the liquid left over in a roux sauce the next day. It was incredibly delicious.
