    I made bread with it and it was great. Pork, I would think it overpowered.

    I wouldn't recommend drinking it, either.

    I don't cook with beer often, but even less so with hoppy beers.

    Agreed with the Bread Post, done it several times with great results

    Yeah, I tried cooking with Deviant Dale's once and got a similar experience. Great beer, not a great cooking beer. I like the bread idea, I may have to try that.

    I've found that when you reduce hoppy beers by cooking down your sauce, it becomes way too bitter. I've splashed them in toward the end, like in mussels, with good results. I, too, learned this the hard way.

    Couldn't agree more. Cooking with bitter beers is always a no-no.

    IPA braised carnitas is always delicious.
