Delicious beer and BBQ pairings
You don’t need to be a food connoisseur to figure out which beer will pair best with what’s coming off your Q. Whilst a beer sommelier (yes, they do exist) will go into tremendous detail about what you should/shouldn’t serve, we like to keep it simple with this basic philosophy: Darker beers for rich food, lighter beers for light food.
If your local liquor store is having a good deal on heavier beers (dark ale, stout, porter), pair them with these delicious BBQ recipes…
