Well, it is common thinking that wasps as well as bees are attracted to beer. You will be amazed reading that this is true. So don’t spend your precious time finding the most suitable citronella candles or oils for this purpose, but try open beer cans instead. You will definitely achieve your purpose and eventually will get rid of the bees around your picnic point in the park. Just put these open beer cans at a minimum a yard away from the BBQ point.

You probably have heard of the usage of raw eggs as shampoos which was very common in the old days. This use of beer is at No. 5 in our top 10 amazing and unusual uses for beers.

Though the best friends of a gardener are generally named worms, slugs are always included in the no-wanted list of all gardeners. Well, these slimy pests could be dried up using some salt and this technique works really well, but it requires a lot of effort before application as you need to find them first. Slugs love beer and you can entice them using this technique. Find an empty jar, pour some beer into it and finally place it anywhere in the soil. They will die drowning in the end.
3 – Use Beer to Make a Batter
It is a usual habit in households that a little raising agent is added whenever the intention is to make the batter and mainly baking powder is used for this purpose. But beer could be another interesting and useful option for this purpose. You can get raises in your batter from the yeast and the bubbles in the drink. You can add more beer if you feel the batter is still very thick and add little more flour only if the batter is too thin.
2 – Put Beer in Chili
Well, this could be a unique usage for many as well in addition to an amazing and unusual use for this drink. Well adding beer to the chilli is definitely one of the best ways for all those who want to add a little extra liquid and flavour to their chilli. I recommend using darker beers for this purpose only because it is available relatively in more flavours than others and therefore you can get more punch.
1 – BBQ a Chicken using Beer
This could be the relatively easiest recipe to BBQ a chicken using beer. Just have an opened beer can, stand a full chicken on this can and let it cook on the barbeque. You must insert the can in the neck area of the chicken which then is stood upright. The beer subtly flavours the meat as soon as the chicken started cooking on heat. This results in preparing surprisingly moist as well as relatively tastier chicken.
