I picked up a sixer when I was in the area over Memorial Day and yes, it was pretty good. Can't remember which one it was, though.

Looks like you're off to a great start, Griff! The 5.24% ABV sounds about right for that style of beer.

Good to be back CharredGriller. Just FYI I think about your quote every time I light my propane grill. :P

So do I now. I picked up a MasterChef 4-burner gasser last year as I was getting really ticked off with not being able to grill as a result of a bunch of fire bans. The price was really good, though - for $300 I got 4 burners, a really good rotisserie burner, and an infrared side/sear burner that tops out at about 850-900 fegrees F.

But I still like to fire up the chinmeys whenever I can, too. :D
Unlike propane, you'll never wake up scorched and naked in another county because you mishandled a bag of briquettes.

I tend to not secondary, especially wheat beers or Hefeweizen.

They also are better young in my book, I did secondary one wheat I made a Kristalweizen (clear wheat) which almost didn't taste like a wheat beer since so clear and crisp.

Congrats on first batch

I just picked up a sixer of Leinenkugel Summer Shandy and it is pretty tasty. They will probably go down too fast though.

Probably my one beer of the Summer. Had a Summer Shandy a week ago last Saturday. Very smooth and would liked to have had another but 120 some miles from home and still had to make the drive.

sweet water 420 extra pale ale or Boulevard Single Wide get my vote, both are excellent with smoked pork butt and/or chicken! :cheers:

A bbq is only PARTLY about the food. It's MOSTLY about getting together and hanging out in the backyard with friends.

Decide to BBQ some baby back ribs.

Had some Sam Adams Harvest Pumpkin Ale while the ribs were in the smoker.

Image
Had some home brewed Irish Red Ale when it was time to eat.

My brother surprised me with a Mission Amber Ale. Phew, folks!-- this one be a tad expensive. Comes from San Diego, CA. 5% alcohol by volume. I found it produced a wonderful foamy head with a refined bouquet, as one would expect at such a price point. I was actually surprised by how "hopsy" a flavor it had, something like some kind of pale ale. My brother really wanted to take the pic for me, so that's why it looks a little different than usual.

Nice brother regardless of his picture taking capabilities. My brother is a Corona guy. At least if he was going to drink something from south of the border, he could try to drink something good.
