Default BBQ Question

Other than cold and/or free, what are your favorite beers/styles for BBQ? My brother has a couple of BBQ competitions. I'll be bringing some beers to help keep the crew motivated.


I like Dude's Watermelon Wheat. Any other ideas? It will be hot down here in Alabama around all those smokers.

I think the overwhelming majority of folks are going to pick lawnmower beers, light lagers, and other refreshing brews. In general, I'd rather have a dark porter with the kind of things that usually come off the grill or out of a smoker.

My brother might be going to Memphis, but I'll be going to the one in Birmingham, Al. Birmingham has a good one this summer at Sloss Furnas. Hard not to go to that one since it's right down the street. It's in July or August I believe......

Personally I like a nice hoppy IPA or Pale Ale with my BBQ.

Pale ales seem to work for me. Not going to get too buzzed and burn myself on the grill.

I got the stuff for Beermuncher's Blonde today. I'll see how that works. The amber I have planned might work too. I haven't tried a Kolch or Lager yet.
