The Session is a monthly event for the beer blogging community begun by Stan Hieronymus of Appellation Beer, and co-moderated with Jay Brooks of the Brookston Beer Bulletin.
On the first Friday of each month, one blogger hosts The Session: Beer Blogging Friday, choosinga specific, beer-related topic, inviting all bloggers to write on it, and posting a roundup of all the responses received.

Here's how host David Jensen. author of blog Beer 47, announced the theme for The Session #47 - Cooking with Beer, for 7 January 2011:
We all know beer is great for drinking but what about using it as an ingredient in cooking? Wine is used as an ingredient for numerous dishes and recipes yet beer seems to be under utilized in cooking. However, with the rise in popularity of craft beer and advocacy from the likes of The Homebrew Chef, I think this trend is slowly changing. For the month of January, Beer 47 will be hosting The Session #47 and encouraging beer bloggers from all over the internet to discuss Cooking with Beer. ... Include other dishes besides (or in addition to) dessert, the reason being that we have already discussed Beer Desserts for The Session #30.
I'll jump right into it, with a recipe that I cook often. These ingredients ...
... yield this result: Beer Rice.
From prep to eat, it's no more than 60 minutes. Go here for the full recipe. Go here for the links to the participating bloggers.
And, yes, that's a Bud in my blog.
