Wouldn't the oils in the peppers kill your head retention?

Cave creek Chili beer is ok if its fresh. Tastes like crap if its skunked just like Corona. Also each bottle has a whole pepper in it which is way to powerful I take a slice of pepper and add it to a light colored beer and its very good ... But then again I poop fire most times anyways love me some spicy food.

Let us know how yours comes out

If it is too much to drink, this would make a great base for some chili.

I put whole peppers in the bottle of a 6 pack of an Amber ale and a stout. Turned out incredible. Amazingly the peppers stay very well preserved even 6 months later. One bottle is enough to satisfy your pepper craving for a night.

I've had a chili beer once, and I believe it was the cave creek one. It didn't taste that great, but wasn't good either. Certainly not as spicy as everyone seems to make it out to be. I also order my Indian food Indian hot, though.

I would recommend having another beer in the other hand and alternating the two.

I had the jap-a-leano one at a brewfest. It was weird. Nothing special. I wished I asked for the chocolate coffee stout instead... it was back of the line for me again. I didnt like hot beer

I had this beer a couple of weeks ago. I am not a real big fan of wheat beers, but this beer was really nice. It had a great taste of Jalapino and Habanero peppers. I asked the brewer and he basically makes a beer and dry hops/peppers the beer with the peppers in the keg. When it is spicy enough, he racks it to another keg.
Good stuff!

Never had Chilli beer but sounds good.

I made a Chilli and Blackberry wine last crop and It was hot but that's what I was aiming for.

Used 3 birds eye chillis and a scotch bonnet mushed in with the berrys before fermenting and It kept plenty of heat.
