Great Cans of Beer for Barbecuing

Barbecue season isn't complete without a few frosty brews

Shiner Bock-Spoetzl Brewery, Shiner, Texas

Few Texans can live without their Shiner. In recent months, this beer has been spreading even further throughout the country -- coming to New York City for the first time ever. Brewed at Spoetzl Brewery since the early 1900s, Shiner is the best example of the brewery's Bavarian heritage.

Of course, this old school beer comes in a can (like all our selections). The deep amber-colored bock has a sweet flavor that's combined with a very mild hop bitterness. It's also a perfect complement to your typical smoky Texas barbecue -- what else?

  • All good beers, however, not one Pacific NW beer in the bunch, many of which come in cans. This seems a bit biased not to come all the way out to the West Coast essentially where craft beer started post prohibition.

    Just to name a few that are really great cooking beers as well as sipping with the bbq; Pike Kilt Lifter Scotch Style Ale, Pike IPA, Pike 5X Stout. Other breweries to take a good look at; Fremont Brewing, Big Time Brewing, Naked City Brewing. Better yet go to the WA Beer Commission site and you can search all of them. http://www.washingtonbeer.com/

    Yeah, this list is mediocre at best. If you're going to include an Oskar Blues beer, Old Chub is much better than Mama's Little Yella, especially with food. Ballast Point's Sculpin IPA, one of the best beers in the country, is available in cans now, too; definitely deserves inclusion over the likes of Shiner and Anderson Valley.

  • Who says you ought to drink canned beer at a BBQ? Bottles stay cold a lot longer, which encourages slower sipping instead of gulping, and the beer also tastes better.
