Dirty Beers | Slang/Ritual | Cans of cheap beer, specifically those purchased as gifts for the kitchen staff by a visiting chef from another restaurant who has come in on his/her night off to dine (typical Dirt Beer brands include Old Milwaukee, Pabst Blue Ribbon). A thoughtful gesture of respect and goodwill that is invariably hugely appreciated by the recipients.

Usage | “Make sure this next pick is soigné. Table 20 brought us Dirty Beers…”
