I went out to the guest house and found I had forgotten about 20 bottles of beer in the refrigerator, all leftover from a fund raising party last year. It has got to be really stale. It wasn't even great beer to begin with. Any ideas what I can do with so much stale beer besides recycle the bottles?

You can make vinegar! The Ideas in Food book has detailed instructions. Here are some of their blog posts about it:

They might be just fine - pop one open to see if it's flat.

If it's not flat. And it really shouldn't be if it's been in the fridge. Use it for tempura batter.
If it is flat (unlikely) Save it for summer or St. Pat's day. to boil and steam cabbage and corn beef. Then for boiled hot dogs or sausages in the summertime or additions to chili, or stews.

Shrimp (in the shell) boiled in beer is delicious.

If it's not good beer to begin with, I say pitch it. I have the same rule for cooking with beer as with cooking with wine. If you wouldn't drink it, don't cook with it. Just because it isn't flat doesn't mean that it is drinkable.
