Default Beer chili recipe

Want to make a fairly simple beer chili, buy not sure what beer to go with. Was thinking about it and thinking either dogfish head 120min ipa or something like a Russian imperial, thoughts??

I'm making one tonight using a scotch ale homebrew. One of my main reasons for making chili is to have a cheap meal so I'm not big on putting expensive beers in it. Instead I'll drink those while I eat the chili.

I don't think there are many beers that would make it taste bad, considering most beer-chili recipes say to use Bud.

I make a Chocolate Chipotle Chili using Young's Double Chocolate Stout, but I've also done it with porters.

I agree with BillyBroas that I wouldn't throw anything too expensive in there. All of the great, complex flavors of a Russian Imperial Stout will be lost in the chili.

Whew...I misread this in a state of panic and thought the title read "chili beer". I was going to start screaming "Dear god, don't speak of it and let it die!!!!!!!!!!!"

Anyway, I used a Southern Tier porter in a chipotle black bean chili I made that was serious kick-@ss.

What about using a chile beer in chili or would that be overkill and not add anything special? Something like DFH Theobroma.

IMO a simple porter or stout would work, though the overall flavors of the meat and spices will dominate.

Don't drop $12 a bottle for DFH 120 or RIS just to dump it in a batch of chili, that's a sin in my eyes. I usually use homebrew in my chili, and have had very good results with Red Ale. I would think that Porters/Stouts would be great, and I love the idea of a Scottish Ale, I think that would be nice. All the qualities that make great beer great are going to be lost in the chili.

What you should do... buy that same bottle of 120 or RIS, but pour it in a glass and drink it with your chili. You'll be MUCH happier with the results of that experiment.

Great I think I'll see what great divide's yeti or maybe a fuller's porter is like. What does everyone think about adding some light hops late boil like 5 min. In a nylon bag to get some aroma/flavor?? I'm sure the spices of the chili will be overpowering but maybe some hops will come through??

Woah... do it.

How about a single hop pellet stirred into your bowl. That should give you an idea.
