Has anyone done beer can chicken with a can of craft brew? I am curious to hear your tasting experiences.

Im thinking about doing a can of one of Oskar Blues beer in the future.

My favorite to use is Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy, although I need another empty can to pour it into. I don't recall what pale I used, but once I used a hoppy beer and did not like it. The flavor didn't justify the use of a good beer.

I've used a homebrew before after pouring it into a can. Turned out pretty good.

I always use the oldest, skunkiest beer I can find. If I can't, then I'll use a bud/miller/coors and let it sit outside for a week.

I would assume he doesn't want to waste a good beer to put inside a chicken's but and will never be drank.
