Peel and coarsely grate the potatoes. Using the grating blade, you can also use a food processor for this step. Place the grated potatoes in a bowl of water and set aside.
In another bowl, whisk together the eggs, beer, flour, salt and pepper to taste. Add the onions. Drain the potatoes and pat dry on paper towels. Add to the egg and onion mixture. Toss well to combine.
Pour a few tablespoons of oil in a heavy non-stick frying pan and heat over medium high heat. Using a slotted spoon, spoon some of the mixture into the hot oil forming a round pancake. Cook in batches until golden and crispy, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Remove from the pan and serve immediately with Roasted Spiced Applesauce.
