A few days ago, you might know that we bagan a discussion about beer, here:
viewtopic.php?f=2&t=24216&start=15

Upon recommendation and intrigue, I "hopped" to it to track down some of that hoppy-go-lucky India Pale Ale. Shazbot!!!-- This brew is produced in Colorado, checks in at 6.5% alcohol, and rang my bell. Who says there's a shortage of honey bees this year?
This isn't no Bud, Coors, or Miller light, is it Wiseguy, CBG, & Brad? My goodness, that was delicious! Here is a pic of this "Ranger" brand:

Anyway, what is YOUR favorite for the pit? Or, do you brew your own? :cheers:
Got beer???

I'm all over New Belgium brews, but that Ranger is not my cup of tea. The coriander is a huge turn off for me. I'd have to go with Boulevard Tank 7 (especially from the tap). My goodness, that stuff is awesome. Don't even need a pint glass. Just pour it in a baby bottle, cause I will 'nurse' the heck out of that stuff.

Thats's a good choice there Beercuer. I am a newbie beer geek so I am trying to get into beer pairings. I like an IPA with spicy food. For a grilled steak or burger try New Belgium Fat Tire. Another cooking tip not BBQ related if you can get your hands on some good chocolate stout use it to make pancakes just replace the amount of water needed with the beer the only downside you might have some beer left over in the bottle that you have to drink in the morning :wink:. I also brew my own at the moment I have some red ale in the fermentor. My next brew I plan on making a jalapeno saison that should hit the spot with some spicy recipes.

Works for me, too! :wink:

I don't really have a favorite as I like a lot of different styles. Except Belgian. No Belgians at my house.

Gordon Biersch's Marzen is my current favorite. However, Newcastle Brown Ale is a close second.

Take care,

Derek
Always keep an open mind. But not so open that your brain falls out.

Living in the micro beer capitol of the US (Pacific Northwest) There are soooooo many to choose from. I like Mac and Jack's but it is only available in kegs :( I like Alaska Amber and guests get PBR in a can.

Thanks fellas. Come to think of it, my town also has a microbrewery. It's time for me to go back there and actually venture inside.

Get a growler filled. That's what I do when I find beer I like only available on tap.

Wiseguy, World Market place use to sell it I ahven't been there in a few months so I'm not sure if they still carry it. But no I haven't tried it or any of the Rogue products mainly because they are quite pricey or at least they are for me.
