My guess would be pasteurize it and add in secondary. Just don't use too much of it!

I tried a "Wild Blue" blueberry lager from Blue Dog Brewing the other day, and boy is this heavy on the blueberry!! I love blueberries, but this was not yummy by any stretch.

The beer is purple with a foamy purple head, and tastes like spiked blueberry soda.

Search here for Blue Berry Cider. You'll find some good reading

You might try a venture into meads as well. Several good recipes for Blueberry Melomel ou there. I just made my first one in November. I don't know if it's any good as once you get past the primary it's a sit and wait game for the aging, but it was a nice change of pace to cook one up just the same.
Primary: German Hef, Belgian IPA, Scottish 80, Belgian Dubbel
On Tap: Oatmeal Stout, Vanilla Oatmeal Stout, Belgian Dark Strong, Munich Dunkel, Dunkel Weizen, Oktoberfest, Bock, IPA, Black IPA, English IPA, Pale Ale
