20 Delicious Foods You Never Knew You Could Make Using Beer

I love holidays that give me excuses to stuff my face with food.

But, you know what's even better than a day dedicated to binge-eating? Festive occasions that make it socially acceptable to run around like a drunken idiot all day, of course!

Yep, if you haven't already heard the news, today is National Beer Day. It would pretty much be an injustice to not knock back a few brews in honor of this intoxicating event.

But, if you happen to love eating as much as I do, you can kill two birds with one brew and incorporate some beer into your favorite snacks.

Did you know you can use your beloved beverage to do more than just make the basics, like brats and beer-battered onion rings?

That's right. From beer-infused breakfasts and mouthwatering meals smothered in beer cheese to delectable drunken desserts -- there are all sorts of ways you can use beer to turn up your favorite treats.

In honor of National Beer Day, I rounded up a bunch of badass beer recipes to help you celebrate this glorious occasion like a true champion.

Take a look at the pictures below to see all the things you never knew you could make with beer.
