I just popped open my first bottle of Revvy's Kentucky Common recipe, and it's delicious and appealing to non-beer folks (that is--my sister likes it). It was my first attempt at AG, and I ended up being much more efficient than I planned, so I had an OG of 1.056 instead of the 1.046 in his recipe. Beer finished out a hair over 6% ABV, but it's remarkably smooth and easy to drink. I can't say how it pairs with venison, but I wouldn't really imagine any problems. At any rate, it's at least worth a look.

Almost forgot, you need some grilled asparagus as a side......
OK, I'm sold. I don't hunt but I might have to chase down the occasional deer I see on the side of the road if it's as good as you make it sound.

Malty beers do best when used in cooking. Concentrating highly hopped beers will clash with most foods. Now drinking them with the food is a different story.

Another east Texas hunter here. As far as cooking beer, my go to cooking beer is shiner bock. Works well with marinades and reduces down to make a very good sauce. The guys I hunt with drink more mix drinks than beer, but do drink the occasional shiner bock to start happy hour when we first get back from the stand. I just brewed what I'm calling an American bock to take up this fall for them to try. I went for something close to shiner bock but about 1% ABV more.

I say porter but you could go the Belgian route with pretty much anything (dubbel, blonde, trippel, quad) although your BMC drinking friends may not be into much of that. Gratzer might be an interesting pairing...

Shiner makes a killer braised pork chop.

Me to, but if I were amking one for camp I'd do a malty Scottish ale. A little venison wrapped in bacon on an open fire, some grilled onions and a baked potato washed down with an 80/- would be a great end to a day in the field.
