it's not just for kegs, cans, bottles, and buckets anymore. In
fact, it's moved beyond the tap into a whole new territory --
food. With St. Patrick’s Day
, the most popular
beer holiday, just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to
sample foods that feature beer as a main ingredient.More from The Stir
Get Drunk on the World's Strongest Beer
Behold these nine ways that you can have your beer and eat it
1. Fried Beer
: It was inevitable really, since
everything from Twinkies to tomatoes have found themselves sizzling
in grease, but it took just the right guy to actually figure out
how to do it. Beer is poured inside a salty dough, sealed in a
ravioli-like pouch, and fried. When you bite in, beer oozes out.
You must be 21 or older to eat it.
2. Beer Ice Cream:
Earlier this month, Slash Food
reported on the Denver
Beer Ice Cream Fest, which served up flavors like Smoked Porter
S'mores and Maple Pale Ale.
3. Beer Candy:
Straight from England, you can
order Pint Pots-- beer-flavored jelly candies shaped liked little
beer glasses, complete with foam and everything.
4. Beer Hopsicle
Not just some drunk guy's
creation, this is a real menu item at Diablo Royale Este restaurant
in New York. It's basically sweetened beer served in a sawed
off beer can.More from The Stir

bottle along with the traditional ingredients and some raisins.
