When it comes to the perfect beverage for barbecue, it’s tough to beat beer. Jeff Alworth’s new book The Beer Bible is a compendium of all things beer: which beers to try with which foods (including barbecue), how to maximize your enjoyment of prominent flavor profiles, and more. In honor of the book’s release, our friends at Boulder Beer Co. (whose Pale Ale is a “Beer to Know” in the book!) are giving away a Beer Lover’s Prize Pack and a copy of The Beer Bible to THREE lucky winners! Enter below.

Read what Jeff has to say about Boulder Beer’s Hazed and Infused (excerpted from The Beer Bible):
MALT: Pale, caramel, roasted barley
HOPS: Nugget, Willamette, Crystal, Centennial
4.9% ABV, 1.050 SP. GR.
Pale is a relative term, not a dictate. Made with roasted barley, Hazed and Infused is a deep orange in the glass. Yet color isn’t the emphasis here; hop flavor and aroma are. Dry-hopping produces rich grapefruit and orange aroma, and this is backed up by saturated flavors of citrus and cedar. The roasted barley comes in at the end, adding a snap of dryness that helps anchor the beer. If at all possible, try Hazed and Infused at the brewery; those dry-hop notes are delicate and evanescent.
