What Can We Do With Flat Home-Brewed Beer?

Good Questions

Q: My husband and I made a batch of homemade beer and well the results were less than spectacular — the beer was flat.

I know we can't save it but any ideas for uses in cooking?

Editor: Kimberly, we might use it to deglaze short ribs or a pot roast — something hearty! Readers, any suggestions?
