Marinate meat by placing it in a plastic zipper-top bag with beer. Let the meat marinate for several hours before draining and cooking.
Add flavor to food
Add flavor to recipes by using beer as an ingredient in the sauce, base, or coating.
Polish the tarnished bottom of a pot, or any other copper object, with beer to remove stains and give a lustrous finish. Pour the beer on, let it sit for a few minutes, and then wipe it off.
Deal with pests
Deal with pesky snails, slugs, and bees by leaving a shallow dish filled with beer in your garden. The creatures will climb in and drown.
Fall asleep easier
Fall asleep easier by washing your pillowcase in beer. The hops in beer give the pillowcase a comforting nutty scent, which will help you relax and go to sleep.
Make beer-sicles by freezing beer in a popsicle maker. Adults will enjoy this unusual summer treat.
Take a beer bath
Pour a few cans of beer into your next bath. The vitamins and yeast are very good for the skin. Take a quick shower after!
