Not as common as it once was rabbit if cooked right still is a great meal. One great example of how to cook it correctly is this beer braised rabbit hindquarter recipe.
Picking the right beer can make all the difference in the recipe. As the beer reduces down it gets stronger so it may not be a good idea to start with an already strong beer like a stout.
This recipe can be served with a wide range of sides but something like mashed potatoes or fresh bread that can pair with the rich sauce created makes an ideal choice. Fresh vegetables will also round out the recipe.
