Serve with red onions caramelized with brown sugar and chipotle chili pepper for a smoky finish.

Melt butter in large skillet on medium heat. Add onions, 1 teaspoon of the Marinade Mix and chipotle chili pepper; cook and stir 7 to 8 minutes or until onions are golden brown. Add 2 tablespoons of the beer and sugar; cook and stir 1 to 2 minutes or until beer has evaporated. Set aside.
Mix remaining Marinade Mix, remaining 1/3 cup beer and Worcestershire sauce in large bowl until well blended. Add ground beef; mix lightly. Shape into 6 patties.
