What to do with root beer?

I have several cans of it and we aren't crazy about it.

Can I use it in chicken like beer, or are there other ways to use it in cooking?

Thanks

I guess you could reduce it for a glaze but if your not crazy about it why try and use it at all. You won't be crazy about whatever you make with it.

I don't really want to drink it. I wonder how it would taste, like with fennel or something else sort of strong flavored ....

Give the nasty stuff to someone who likes it. Or, keep if for the occasion of a kid visiting.

I have seen it with pulled pork, baked beans, and the "beer can chicken". I'm not saying they are good recipes (haven't tried them)... but it has been done!

Funny, I never liked root beer as a kid (maybe because it was Shasta), but now I like it. We buy Barq's Root Beer.

Barq's with a bite!

I loved root beer as a kid and I think I burnt myself out on it, I can hardly drink it now.
