best beer for BBQ - Page 29

post #561 of 577

Anything but sam adams (intentional lower case).  After they pulled sponsorship for the Boston Irish festival, because the Irish didn't want to make it a combined Irish-Gaypridefestival, they lost my patronage. Political correctness has gone way to far.

Quality beers shouldn't’t be served colder than 44 degrees Fahrenheit. Here are some general temperature guidelines for different beers:

Serve most premium lagers between 42 and 48 degrees Fahrenheit and quality ales between 44 and 52 degrees Fahrenheit 
Serve authentic Stouts as warm as 55 degrees Fahrenheit

 

In the United States, most beers are served much too cold for serious appreciation. In fact, ice-cold temperatures ruin the flavor of good beer. The average refrigerator is set to keep food and drinks chilled at around 38 to 40 degrees Fahrenheit, but serving beers at this temperature has several negatives, including the following:
 
The colder the beer, the less carbonation is released; the less carbonation that’s released, the less aroma the beer gives off.
 
The palate is numbed to the point that it can’t discern many of the beer’s flavor nuances. (So this explains why some beers are best served just above the freezing mark!) Why bother drinking a beer if you can’t actually taste it ?
 
Cold temperatures = less carbonation released = less aroma = less taste = why bother? Save the really cold temps for lawnmower beer — the kind you chug down after mowing the lawn (taste? who cares?).  Your Bud's Miller's Coors Busch's you get the idea.


I fully agree with this. The only time I drink something that ends in light is when it is free and ice cold.

We all need some bottled water occasionally.

I'll side with jake... Beer is like cheese... Some cheeses you eat at room temp. Some you eat cold. The best beers I've drank were stouts around close to room temp.

Simple. If it tastes good to drink, It's good to cook with.

Any IPA will work for me. My favorite though would be Pliny The Elder from Russian River Brewery.
