I'm kind of into spanish/latin beer like san miguel or corona


Welcome to the board, DGrey87! :cheers:

The first place I had ice-cold San Miguel was in Torremolinos, Spain back in 1988 at a bar called Nick's. Back then it was a famous bar catering mostly to Navy personnel. The place had hundreds of pictures and other memorabilia from every ship's crew that docked in Malaga just down the coast. There were items from U.S., Canadian, British, other NATO countries, Israeli and even a few Russian ships. And the burgers and fries were excellent. :D

The thing that was neat about this particular bar was that the beer was almost superchilled. If you left the bottle out for a few minutes it actually formed a thin coat of ice, not just the usual condensation. That really beat the heat out there, and that's saying something as some of the days there were as hot and humid as places I've visited on the US Gulf Coast.

It took me a few years to figure out how to duplicate that technique, and all it involved was setting the beer fridge to 35 or 36 degrees. That's about as cold as my beer fridge can go, but it works great.
Unlike propane, you'll never wake up scorched and naked in another county because you mishandled a bag of briquettes.

I just got done with some mowing and an ice-cold beer like that sounds great! And Mrs. Chicken just got back from the grocery store so my fingers are crossed... :wink:

I buy Sam Adams by the case at Costco and keep in the little frig I bought for the kids when they were in college. It's my little frig now! Melody brought home some 20 ounce mugs she found at Salvation Army and it takes two bottles to fill one mug.

That little frig also holds the briskets and butts when they are sitting wrapped with rub overnight so the main frig doesn't small like onions and garlic.

I think it's important to remember you really can't go wrong with beer and barbequing. I enjoy using different micro beers, especially as the seasons change. I have a locally brewery which makes a killer winter ale. The beer with the chicken made a for an excellent combination. Experiment, try new things besides that's half the fun of BBQ.

Welcome to the board grillmarks. I agree with you 100% I'm a homebrewer and a beer geek. So I am always open to different beers.

Those of you who home-brew might enjoy this episode of Wisconsin Foodie. It features George Bregar of Milwaukee and his home setup is pretty darn impressive:

Nice video. I'm jealous of his homebrewing set up.

That link led me to,not only the beer but a whole smorgus board of foodie videos. I particularly liked the baker and the cheese maker segments.

I checked my local World Market and they did not have it. I asked the store employee about the beer and she said they could order in it for me. I am looking forward to trying it this weekend. Beer, BBQ, and a long holiday weekend doesn't get much better than that!

For you dark beer drinkers out there, try a Warsteiner Dunkel. This stuff puts the "oooo in smooth!"
