I"d just like to say that keggers also often have left over beer that just won't fit in a keg!

I used to be greedy and fill my keg and a couple of bottles, as I try to get 5.5-6 gallon batches but that takes so much damn extra work it really isn't worth it. I really like the beer batter idea or beer marinade. I'll have to give that a shot as I find that my kegging/bottling day has been getting lazier for sure.

My apologies, I just figured that every keg owner would say "I don't waste any beer because it all goes in my keg blah blah"

I rarely have that much left over...maybe half a bottle. I just drink it.

I end up with so much trub, that it isn't really worth me pursuing those last milliliters.

If I am bottling I go ahead and put it in a bottle anyway - that's the one I pop open in a few weeks to check for carbonation.

When kegging I use a growler or lately I have been using those carb caps to "hurry up and try some". The work real well. Sometimes I use them when I don;t know if I should carbonate something like an apfelwein or cider ... let's me carbonate a little bit.

I have 12 6oz bottles that I got form some Sam Adams specialty beer thing they did a few years back. I always sanitize 1 of them when I'm bottling a batch. When I do bottle it's big expensive beers (rest is kegged) and I don't end up with more than ~5 ounces of extra of the precious stuff.

All remaining beer after bottling is quickly chilled and consumed. The way god intended. :-)
