Suggestions for recipes using flat beer?

A neighbor very graciously gave me about 3/4 gallon IPA from a keg they had last weekend-great local beer-and I put it in glass jars and promptly forgot about it. Hate to just throw it out or use it for slug bait...any recipe ideas?

  1. Mussels? Like white wine, but with beer.

    1. Make bratwurst links, or ... add beer to ground beef before grilling.

      1. Beer is great as the liquid for braising a pot roast in. Chicken with beer and prunes is a Belgian dish that is very tasty and unusual.

        1. Use it as the liquid for a batch of pancake batter. With the bitterness of an IPA, it will contrast nicely with butter and syrup.

          1. Cook shrimp in it with some Old Bay seasoning.
            Use a cup in a batch of chili.
            Cook steamers in it.
