Having the classic shrimp boil this weekend (shrimp, corn, potatoes, sausage) with the extended family. Suggestions for styles or specific beers?

Something light & crisp to go with extinguishing the Zartaran's spice.

I'm thinking cold Dos Equis Amber Lager or Regular with lime.

First thing that came to my mind was a nice Belgian Saison (Hennepin for instance) or maybe a dubbel. Nice, light, refreshing, and will let the delicate flavors of the shrimp shine but also give your palatte some action as well.

I think you'd want something with a some body to it. APA
