It isn't really BAD, but just past it's prime (a blond ale, low hops, low alcohol so it is not worth rehopping and making into a hop-bomb ipa).
All the ideas I am seeing online involve roasting meat or boiling animals. Any ideas? I have maybe 4 or 5 liters.

Make it into a tempeh or tofu marinade for fajitas is all I've got. Or try some cocktails that are mixed with beer so you won't notice the beer.

My two go-tos for cheap/unwanted beer are drunken beans and beer-battered anything.

Oh, also, one year I did a Thanksgiving Tofurkey marinated in PBR in a Crock Pot overnight. That was pretty tasty.

You could make seitan carbonade flamande, chili, beer bread, pretzels, and beer-battered whatevers.

Are you up for canning? You could make a lifetime supply of mustard.

i would make mustard. I have to go hunt for gluten flour and see about making seitan whatever.
Had forgotten about beer bread, thanks, and drunken beans, huh? that is a new one for me, I am looking at yummy recipes.
(we are all avoiding fried stuff, so the beer batter and hush puppies and all those delightful thingies are off the table)

thanks yall!

I've also heard of people pickling with beer, but I haven't tried it myself.

Good luck with your beer!

Get buzzed on good beer first so you don't notice you're drinking the bad beer.

This may not be a very good long-term lifestyle choice. Probably marinating things or beer-battering would be a better idea.

This was my first thought!

I like to make the chocolate beer waffles in vegan brunch.

My favorite is to make sort of a stew with vegetables, mushrooms and beer.
Kind of like boeuf bourguignon, but with beer instead of wine (and mushrooms instead of beef. okay, it's totally different ;))
Some chilli recipes call for beer, and I guess id would be nice in all sorts of stews and soups.

I just remembered John Schlimm! His grilling book probably has beer recipes as well, but the index can't be searched by ingredient. His newer book, The Ultimate Beer Lover's Happy Hour, has too many things to list. It has food recipes with beer, beer pairings, beer cocktails, beer milkshakes, etc. Beer, beer, beer.

I'd say welsh rarebit but you really need a stronger ale for that.

Beer battered onion rings? Beer bread?

Woohoo!! what a haul!!

The beer was, to my taste, bad to begin with (no hops? low alcohol? pale and young? eck.) so drinking it, nope.
We had a poker night and when the troops were all havering and sniffing around for anything, I opened one, and nope, they would rather drink my strong porter, which is kind of surprising since everyone here is terrified of dark beer. This pale beer is really bad, drinking it is just not an option.

I wish we had tempeh in this country, because beer would be perfect for it. Alas..... I will have to see how hard it will be to find gluten flour this time, because seitan sounds about right. I did make a soup with some last week that was delightful.

I know this isn't the best suggestion for a beer-maker as it can lead to cross contamination in the household but you could look into vinegar making. I have made vinegar from wine but it was very uncontrolled and eventually got unpleasantly bitter but while it was good it was great. My failing was not researching it enough and not controlling the experiment so to speak. I simply added mother, oxygenated (shook the hell out of it) and let it rest and forgot about it for a while.

Malt vinegar?

EDIT: I went and read the thread here and some reviews. Neat.

Funny you should say this, i spent an hour googling crepe about this yesterday. I could DEFINITELY put malt vinegar to good use.
I don't know where the heck i could access a vinegar mother (here vinegar is all clean and pasteurized), but i do have kombucha scobys. I was considering just leaving a liter with half a scoby in it and seeing what happened. what is the worst, right?

I haven't made anything from it and probably will never after being diagnosed with a soy allergy. Booo. It does have a few dip recipes and the buffalo dip and blue cheese dip look especially good. The recipe for the blue cheese that's used is millet-based, which I've never seen before. Everything in the mac & cheese chapter looks amazing, too.
