    And I think it's overpriced at 'free'. How do people drink stuff like this?

      although that might be considered animal cruelty.

      I keep cheap beer around to use instead of water in chili. 5 cases though...maybe time for a chili charity fundraiser for a few hundred people.

    •  Try making red beer out of it (3+ / 0-)

      Tomato (and especially Clamato) juice can fix many travesties--or at least make them marginally palateable.  Add a dash of tabasco and a squeeze of lime for the final touch.

        how much I like red beer. Yep, combine that MGD with bloody mary mix and I'll drink it.

        I found myself wondering for a moment how tomato juice would fix transvestites. It would probably take something stronger than beer.

      1. If you have a hop vine, throw 1 or 2 fresh cones in the glass.  
      2. Get some hop oil at homebrew shop and put a drop or 2 in each glass.
      3. Use it for a lawnmower beer, or bribe someone to mow your lawn or do some other chore.
      4. Blend it in the glass with some other homebrew or commercial beer that is ordinarily a little too strong or funky for you.
      5. Cook with it.
      6. Take it to a party for the people who can't drink real beer.
      7. Use it for brewing water if the tap water is too bad to brew with.
      8. Give it to some homeless (and presumably beerless) person, or a poor musician. Be sure to get a receipt for your tax write-off.
      9. Distill it to reclaim the alcohol (for your vehicle or for still fuel.
      10. Hair rinse.
      11. Jerry Baker wrote several books about cheap lawn care. I think beer was an ingredient in a lawn treatment.
      12.  Empty out the bottles, mount on a framework with a hook, get a cheap string of LED lights and stuff one in each bottle, and sell the chandelier for enough to buy some decent beer. Alternately, make it a Christmas tree.
      13. Fill bottles with varying amounts of water to make a wind harp.
      14. String some emptires up for a wind chime.
      15. Use as building blocks with cement for a window in a wall, or build a whole shed or house.
      16. Refill bottles with good beer that you made.
