BEER AND AMERICAN HISTORY
Beer was in America long before the first Europeans got lost on their way to India. Native Americans made it from maize, birch sap and water. A recipe they would share with the Pilgrims who landed at Plymouth Rock.
COOKING WITH BEER
Because beer is such a satisfying, cooling beverage, many people forget that it is also one of the world’s greatest seasoning agents. Used properly, beer turns the most ordinary foods into exceptional party fare. As a marinade for meat, fish or seafood, it tenderizes. In roasting, baking or broiling, beer is used to baste the foods or as an ingredient in the basting sauce to impart a rich, dark color and highlight the gravy.
