Oh, Rauchbier makes a great beef stew. Just 500g of nice beef, couple of red onions and a couple of carrots, fry the onions1 and beef, slice carrots, throw the lot into a casserole pot with some herbs, pour in a bottle of Rauchbier and leave in a low oven while you go down the pub. Eat with fresh bread. Yum.
1 Don't burn the onions or lark_ascending will complain. This is easier said than done when low-fat frying. It tasted fine to me, we're guessing it's something like the evil taste in brassica, which some odd people just can't taste. Weirdos.
