Default What Kind of Beer with Ribs?

Here's a question...what beer do you drink with your ribs?

Sadly enough, I like Miller High Life (The Champagne of Beers) with both pork and beef ribs. There's a lot of variation in "styles" (St. Louis, KC, Memphis) of ribs...

I prefer beef over pork, and either Carolina, Texas, or Memphis style "wet".

Ok, Spicy dry rubbed beef ribbs with a good pale ale does it for me. Garlic, salt, pepper, paprika, crushed cayenne. Just goes great with a APA/IPA.

It all depends on the type of ribs... for you're run of the mill baby backs, I'll take a nice Northern Brown or American Amber, for St. Louis style, IPA all the way.

Yeah, gotta love that IPA with the spicy food. I ate a chipotle pepper I smoked in my water smoker, and it was so hot I had to wash it down with some Stone IPA. I went from 0 to drunk in 60 seconds.

Theres pretty much nothing that a Miller High Life doesn't go good with. Don't see whats so sad about it....

If you're talking about some nice dry rub pork ribs or maybe beef ribs, you know where you're just gonna throw down and eat then I'm with you on the Miller High Life, maybe a Miller Lite. Definitely a Miller Lite instead if you want the wet style ribs.

But If you're talking about just snacking on some baby back ribs, maybe a cheese plate or something while you're planning on enjoying a few brews and some conversation I could drink a Killians Red or four pretty easily.

Wit or IPA for me. Also like my ribs cooked in Argentina fashion.

I think IPA is the best with any style of ribs.

You mean with chimichuri? Great stuff, though I haven't had it in a while...

BTW, I like pale ales with most of my grilled goods. Good flavor but doesn't over shadow the main event, MEAT!!
