Lager Rye Ciabatta
Following the lead of rick.c (http://www.thefreshloaf.com/node/13531/can-i-just-make-recipe) I decided to try a rye infused poolish vesion of ciabatta using beer as an ingredient.
The formula and procedure went like this:
92 grams AP flour
48 grams rye flour
140 grams water
ferment 3 days in fridge
160 grams bread flour
52 grams lager beer
5 grams salt
3 grams active dry yeast
Mix with stand mixer, knead 10 minutes using dough hook
Move to oiled bowl to raise 90 minutes or approx. double in mass
Stretch and fold 8 - 10 times, shape into loaf, oil top and cover
with plastic wrap to proof 60 - 90 minutes or approx. double in mass
Baking stone, parchment, 500 degree oven with water in container to provide steam
5 minutes, remove water, reduce heat to 425 degrees
Bake approx, 10 more minutes to internal temperature of 200 degrees.
The results were:

Crust was brown, tender and offered a somewhat nutty flavor
Crumb was open, very light and tender, a slightly sour rye flavor
This one was pleasing, but I think I'll try a dark beer next time and allow it to reach 205 degrees before removal from oven.
