Beer Can Chicken (pictured above)

Nothing creates moist, fall-off-the-bone chicken like cooking it over a can of beer. If you’ve never seen this technique before, it might look a little over-the-top — but once the chicken is finished grilling, you’ll be hooked after one juicy bite!

For those looking to add a hot, crunchy snack to the lineup this Father’s Day, look no further than these beer-battered onion rings. White Belgian beer makes them crispy, light and fluffy.

Perfect for a pulled pork sandwich, this flavorful dish is topped with a homemade sweet-and-salty sauce that will have you swearing off the bottled stuff for good.

Calling all beer lovers with a sweet tooth! These boozy brownies are an indulgent way to end any meal. You’ll get a nutty, caramel flavor from a 12-ounce bottle of brown ale, which pairs perfectly with the pecan icing and reduced beer glaze.

Marcela Valladolid pairs one cup of lager with crisp orange slices to give her steak a refreshing citrus flavor. Throw it on the grill and watch as you make Dad's day!
