Onions?
 
Anybody ever brew/ taste/hear about a beer brewed with onions? Thought about trying a batch with some vidalia onions. It wouldn't be a session beer for sure. Somebody must have tried it before me.

No!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok, that's one enthusiastic no. Anyone else? If I do try it I think ill do a VERY small batch. Like one gallon. If it isn't drinkable I can always use it to braise some meat, or steam some clams.

Hmmm. You can get the onion taste with summit hops, no need for the actual onions.

Yeah I'm not going for subtle here. I'm talking ONION. Maybe float a crouton with melted cheese on the foam.

That's pretty rude, considering he was just asking a question.

To the OP, I found something online saying to substitute whatever sugars you might use for caramelized onions. Maybe make an IIPA or something else heavy that would use some form of crystalline sugar and use the substitute.

You should just experiment. Who knows, you could start a big trend. Along side EdWort's Apfelwine and Brandon O's Graff could be a gigantic thread titled "How many gallons of tortination's Bloomin' Onion Beer have been brewed?"

Saute those Vidalias, put them on top of a nicely grilled burger and then enjoy with a pint of homebrew. ;) If you must have some edible lilies in a beer garlic might be a better choice.

Onion beer using mustard leaves for bittering? Could be the next trend. :)

It does sound interesting to make a line of cooking beers.
