Should you cook with beer?

Certainly. Beer can be used in cooking rather like wine. The Belgians are the masters of beer cuisine, the classic dish being the succulent beef stew called carbonades flamandes (called vlaamse stoverij in Dutch-speaking areas). So many culinary variations are possible with the huge range of Belgian beers that some restaurants are devoted entirely to beer cuisine.

The British, for their part, make fine beef stews flavoured with beer, especially the slightly sweet brown ales.
