So I wanted to make a recipe that had one of my homebrews in it, and I've really been enjoying this Wit I have on tap recently, so here is the orange chicken glaze that I ended up making.

1 1/2 cups Belgian Wit
1/4 cup lemon juice (~2 large lemons)
1/4 cup rice vinegar
2 1/2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp grated orange zest (~1 large orange)
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh squeezed orange juice
1 cup tightly packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp freshly minces ginger root (or 1/4 tsp powdered)
1 tsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
3 tbsp cornstarch

Pour everything but the cornstarch into a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally to prevent the sugar from burning on the bottom. Be careful if the beer is still carbonated, it will foam up and take some time to get under control. After it comes to a boil and stops foaming, reduce to a simmer and slowly add in the cornstarch while stirring to thicken. Pour over lightly battered fried chicken chunks for a great orange chicken, or use as a dipping sauce.

And believe it or not, this pairs perfectly with a pint of wit. I would have taken pictures, but I didn't think about it until I was halfway done, and it was really good so I wasn't stopping to find the camera.

Fermenting: Nada
On Tap:Cran Wit, Dr Pepper Dubbel, Cascadian Pale Ale, Dark Chocolate Stout, Imperial Stout, Brown Mild, Schwarzbier
On Board: IIPA
