Go figure, you mention Beer & BBQ and the thread gets 26 pages of comments..
update- haha make mine the first of page 27!
Double IPA. 9.5%. Sounds good to me. Takes more ingredients to make a beer like that. That's why they cost more than a Bud Light or other non-flavored beers. But well worth it. IMO.
Bud? The "good reason" is they spend more on marketing and advertising than anyone else. People who know anything about beer know Bud is not good beer. That's like saying Pizza Hut has the best pizza.
I will have to second you on that one AleLover, Personally I cannot stand the BMC's. I prefer to go with a Micro-Brew and there are plenty to choose from.
I've been brewing beer for over 15 years, everything from Pales Ales to Coffee Stouts to German Bock's. What goes best with smoked meat? That's like asking if you prefer blonds, brunettes, or redheads. They're ALL good, some are just better than others, and it all depends on that special moment (I'm talking about beer now guys) when that cold smooth brew washes down those sweet juicy morsels. I have a bumper sticker that reads "Don't eat yellow snow and don't drink yellow beer". Nuff said.
New here. I have to go with my favorite, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. That is my tailgate beer of choice. Lighter than Newcastle (another favorite). My gf bought me a six pack of an Amber ale last weekend that worked pretty good but I don't recall the brand. Will look this weekend and report.
Depends on if it's 90 degrees or 30 out. Summer a good crisp Pilsner (Boulevard Pils out of KC is nice) or a Belgian Wit (can't go wrong with Hoeggarden).
Fall I'll take a nice IPA (Many choices) or a good Porter (Rogue Double Porter is awesome or a Bells Porter)
Winter I'm not standing outside long enough to drink most days...
Spring it's back to IPA's and Porters...
Many other choices but those would be a good start.
