Carmelized Onion Beer

Beer with a sweet oniony flavor
  [vote for,

Use carmelized onion as the sugar substitute in brewing beer.

       You know, onions sauteed in oil until they become sweet.
muppetboy, Dec 04 2002

       Well it'd probably be better than cock ale.

       Do onions grow on de vine?
Jinbish, Dec 05 2002

       I seem to recall that in Pharonic times the Egyptians made beer by fermenting bread, and this bread would often be flavoured with onions. There was a prayer which pretty much went, "Oh mighty <Deity>, give us this day our bread and onions". So there may well be a historic basis for this.   

       Pickled onions go pretty well with beer. And real ale brewed from onions can hardly be worse than the vile tasteless Eurofizz that many mass market brewers foist on the public under the appelation of "Premium Lager".

       I would avoid work for the next 10 days.

       Added to certain ales this would make bitter, sweet.   

       [UB] Camellites - The little known order of smoking monks?
Jinbish, Dec 05 2002

       Are they related in any way to the Caramelised nuns ?

       [UB] thats very true - because camels aren't very hygienic. All that bactria. <resists lame hump jokes>

       Shirley if the onions were
// sauteed in oil until they become sweet //
then that would "ship of the dessert joke"?

       Back in 'the day,' we had a carmel-apple eating contest. Yummm.... Guys vs. gals. Only there was one small change: the guys didn't get carmel-covered apples. We got carmel-covered onions. One big bite later...

       There's a Carmelite convent near where I work. No onions though.

       Is the Father who officiates at a Carmelite convent technically known as a Sugar Daddy ?   

       Wah ... wah .... wah ..... waaaaaaaaa.

       <picks up [8th of 7] - throws him to the baying mob - saving himself from the inevitable 'caning' and beet-ing>
Jinbish, Dec 05 2002

       or even a spaying mob - sorry, [8th]

       Go on - tell us
DenholmRicshaw, Dec 06 2002

       You don't really want me to. There's an ethnic slur involved. =/

       But I like light lager (when I'm off the wagon )-:

       // "ship of the desert" joke//   

       Camels are called the "ship of the desert" because they're full of Arab mariners.
MaxwellBuchanan, Mar 17 2015

       So a two masted scow in the Gulf of Arabia is called a Two Humped Camel of the Sea ?
popbottle, Mar 17 2015

       Flavour! grrrrrrr
