I like to drink beer and eat beef, so why not cook with it too? We're going to try a French Onion soup recipe using my favorite beer, Guinness Extra Stout next time we make it ... I can't wait ... mmmmmmm. We used the Extra Stout for Beer Brats one time, but the flavor of the beer overpowered the brats, so hopefully with the onion soup's other strong flavors, it won't conquer it.

I just made turkey and used beer for marinade, I guess that was all I had in the fridge, it did not come out as nice as would like it to be. It did have beerish taste to it. I did not like it. So I see your point.
Sounds like an interesting mix. I prefer wine for marinades. I once tried marinating with mustard as one of the marinade ingredients and did not like the results. I used cheap mustard (that wasn't tasty enough for any other uses) and could really taste it in the final product.
