Barbeque in a Bottle
Imagine digging into a plate of Angelo's barbeque brisket and washing it down with a swig of Shiner Bock. Mmmm.... the meaty goodness of brisket and the malty snap of the beer.
But if you can't get out to a good barbeque joint, what can you do? Simple: Pick up a six-pack of Shiner Smokehaus beer. The flavor sensations will be exactly the same, even though the barbeque is missing. I guess it's kind of a novelty brew: A beer that tastes like barbeque. But... it works.
I don't know how you brew "mesquite smoked" beer, but the good folks at Spoetzl Brewery figured it out. It takes you out to a barbeque picnic even if you're hangin' out in your BarcaLounger. Add a bunch of nostalgic labeling, and this beer is a winner.
