    Best beer for Texas BBQ?

    Not grilled burgers; real BBQ like brisket and pulled pork.

    Need advice asap. Please post before Tuesday, 6/21.

    +1 if you can find it.


    Great beer. I like both the amber Shiner Bock and Shiner 102 with a double wheat base.

    ust like you can never go wrong with selecting a wine produced in a region of Italy or France to pair with a classic dish where it was created, use the terroir approach in finding the brew to serve at your party.

    I would ask the caterer what style(s) of BBQ is being prepared. Then, go online to find a few top rated BBQ joints in that area. Finally, either call them or check their online sites to ascertain what beers they serve.

    Get yourself a good American pale ale. Sierra Nevada, Dale's Pale Ale from Oskar Blues, or Stone Pale Ale.

    An IPA may be overdoing it, so stick with a regular pale ale. The three I mentioned all have a nice solid hop flavor without being overdone. They pair well with BBQ.

    Next time I'm out of state (can't find it in NY, don't think) and see it, I'm picking up a couple of cases.
    Lonestar doesn't hold a candle to Shiner....not even close. There's this place in NYC that does an admirable job of Texas BBQ (Hill Country) but they carry Lonestar, not Shiner. Big difference.

    The caterer is a restaurant specializing in BBQ; been there many times and they server lots of different beer. But I'm looking for culinary expertise, not the something that caters (pun intended) to the great unwashed masses.

    You of all people should appreciate that.

    This. I'm guessing 80% of Texas BBQs have Bud or Miller products and go perfectly well with Brisket
