I am brewing up a 5 gallon batch and a 3 gallon batch for a small BBQ.

For the 5 I am thinking about a hefeweizen or a wit. I'm curious about what people would suggest for the second beer.

It will need to be something quick so no imperial stouts.

Centennial Blonde and his Munich Helles were both very widely enjoyed at my bbqs this year. I highly recommend either one! Of course my neighbors proclaim "this is my favorite" homebrew no matter what kind they're drinking lol

Guess I'm pretty lucky that way...we have a great deal worked out with the neighbors. We tend to hang outside a lot this time of year and since we all enjoy the homebrew so much they go in half for all the ingredients I buy to make it. They also come keep me company while I brew outside. We also pretty much split meals most of the week so I don't even have to make dinner every night. They're at the point now where they even tell other people THEY make beer hahaha

+1 on the centennial blonde. It's awesome! And if your kegging it can be ready in as little as two weeks.
