If you're a fan of cooking with beer…only like, REALLY cooking with beer, the American Craft Beer Cookbook is a volume that should never leave your kitchen. Apply the beer-cooking method to favorites like meatballs, clams and epic burgers and infuse ordinary food with the greatest carbonated beverage ever created by man. Fried avocado tacos just got so much better.

Vegetarian tacos are a great alternative to meat-laden variations, and all the fresh ingredients in this recipe really bring a pop of flavor. If frying is not your thing, the avocados can be served fresh. Accompany the tacos with black beans, Spanish-style rice, and an American strong ale like Arrogant Bastard Ale, which has a smack of hop bitterness.
