I want to make crepes, but I am out of milk. Can I still make crepes? What can replace milk in this application?
I do have yogurt, beer, eggs, cream, butter, flour, salt, and sugar.

Try watered down cream, as you'll still get some of the milkfat, but you don't want quite as much.
Water would probably also work for your crepes, although it would change the taste.
This might sound nutty, but do you have cashew or almonds? I typically have a stash (though unroasted, unsalted isn't often in the house). You can search around for a recipe for making milk from nuts though:
Put 1/2 cup raw pecans, almonds, walnuts, Brazil nuts, etc., into a blender container. Process until ground. Add 1/2 cup water and process at low speed for a few seconds, then turn blender to high. Blend for a couple of minutes, then add 1 1/2 cups water. Blend well.(from here)
I would say cream is a perfect milk replacement (given you have enough). The crepes will probably taste even better a well.
Will they contain more fat?
Should you care (this one time when you are out of milk)?
Well, since some are saying to use non fat or almond milk, I am going to experiment with rice milk, which I find quite tasty.
Thank you for your interest in this question.
