Greetings to all!
Thanks for letting me know which beer to bring to the cook-out!
The suggestions and the results follow… I’m now leaning to the I.P.A. or smoked beer.
The winner will be posted, with pictures and a paragraph with each one explaining the scene of the crime.

Probably a dopplebock…or you want darker? Go rich with a belgian dark strong. I love imperial stouts but not for a cook-out.

marzen, something like Negra Modelo or a good local marzen, don’t know what’s available in your area, It depends on seasonings.

I say you drink whatever you like. There is no right answer.

Try a Smoked Porter from Stone.

I was thinking the Stone IPA. IMHO dark beers are too heavy for summer.

Personally, I can’t help but reccomend a saison for summer grilling. Sorachi Ace since you’re in NY.
