The restaurant I work at is having a BBQ in about 6 weeks, and my mangers asked me if I'd like to brew the beer for it. We live in Austin and most everyone that works at this place are pretty versed in craft beer, but I dont know about the people they will be bringing.
Im going to do two 5 gallon batches, and keg them. Im thinking of doing my 'house' pale ale (all Amarillo hopped, 35-ish ibu's, 10 srm, 5.5% ABV) and then maybe doing doing Yoopers Hoppy Amber (http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f66/hopp...le-ale-145402/
) Both of them are pretty medium gravity, and not TOO intimidating for most.
Any other styles/recipes you guys think might work better?
This will be the first time anyone I've worked with will try any of my beers, and I want to blow them away. I want to do everything by the book, and get super clear, perfectly carbonated, crisp tasting beer. That, and its the only beer for the whole BBQ so I cant mess it up...
thanks for the help!
