    Good beer is dark... like used motor oil. [​IMG]

    Porter, Stout, Nut Brown... all favorites of mine.

    One of my all time favorites was pipeline porter from Kona Brewing, but I only saw it in the store once and haven't been able to find it since. [​IMG]

    Is that beer inside the smoker? You must be addicted if you smoke your beer too.[​IMG]

    Yes, it is in the smoker, I was doing some log lighter testing at the time, and found out smoked beer is really addicting. Its a good thing I don't have a drinking problem, because I really like to drink.

    BTW, you've got your neighbors trained REALLY well. I gotta remember to drop that little hint cause I've got an old fella that lives a couple doors down that always likes to drop by when I'm out cookin. He's good company too - not one of those annoying neighbors [​IMG]

    Dark brown, thick and warm is the best way to enjoy my favorite beer EKU 28 11% alcohol by volume and drinks like molasses. Don't hand me a light colored beer either, the darker the better! OOPS I did forget I will drink one light colored beer. Cave Creek Pepper Beer.

    Natty light is my beer of choice. Occaisionally I'll get some sam adams for something different. Haven't found a brew of sam adams I haven't liked so far. I reaaly like the sam adams black lager hard to find in my neck of the woods. But good old natty light is about everywhere you look. Oh a little JACK DANIELS hits the spot toooo!!!!!

    Sam Adams Black sounds good, will have to look for that. There is an Irish pub in Columbus that has a drink they call a Black Castle, its half Guiness and half New Castle. Its like a black and tan or half and half. Its my new favorite beer.

    The best beer in the world for BBQ is the one you like! I like a cold Moosehead as I prep the grill and a rich HobGoblin ale works wonders for the soul. My wife likes Newcastle on hot summer days.

    Lot of beer mentioned here, some I've heard of some I haven't. I think the best beer for Q is ANYTHING YOU HAVE COLD.

    Now THAT'S BEER!!! Haven't seen that since I was in Germany 20 years ago!

    With the sheer volume I have been known to consume, I have to keep to the light stuff, lest yea another pair of pants goes into the "maybe I'll fit back into them someday" pile.
  15. I think the best beer for BBQ is any you make yourself. Can't go wrong with a good homebrew for a BBQ.

    The best beer for Q? Well now thats easy it's an open one course!
  17. THe best beer for every occasion comes from Oregon. Mirror Pond Pale Ale by Deschutes, or BLack Butte Porter if you like it a bit darker. Amazingly, Mirror Pond tasted better in the bottle than draft. Opposite is true for Black Butte.

    I bought 5 cases of each along with 5 cases of Bridgeport IPA when I left Oregon, kicking and screaming. Good beer is hard to find in WYoming. The bars have all the standard fare.... bud, bud light, and coors. Sometimes you'll find a good bar with "ferrin" (for Wyoming) beer... like Sam Adams.
  18. All of the Celis beers are now brewed by Michigan Brewing Co. just outside Lansing, MI. They do some distribution around the country.

    For my favorite beer for Q' would be anything I brew.

    Alamar, what does it take to start home brewing? How much money and equipment is involved?
