    Do ya like heat in your beer?

    Worlds hottest beer:


    It's a little over an hour from me, and I ain't gonna make the trip...

    Plus that Fredericksburg area is the worst part of 95!


      Hard pass.


        If I want some heat in my beer, I just make myself a Michelada. You can find any of a number of recipes for it on the Internet. Its basically a Bloody Mary with beer instead of vodka, Tajin seasoning and some other stuff.


          I like the flavor but not the heat in my beer. Our local brewery has a jalapeno beer that is quite popular. It captures the flavor of the jalapeno and not much of the heat. I was talking with the owner today as he was slicing peppers for the current batch and he said he was surprised at how popular it had become.


            Nope, nope, nope.
            Just good old fashioned Budweiser or PBR for me.

              Oh lord. You didn’t just mention PBR ? 😂

            Not when it's pineapple flavored.


              I had a spicy IPA at a local brewery one time, and it was mildly spicy - enough so that I ordered it more than once. Drinking ghost pepper juice though? No thank you!


                Do I? No! And I like heat more than most folks.


                  Ive had some spicy beers that are actually pretty good. Founders (MI) made a mango habanero brew that was quite tasty.




                      Not my cuppa tea....or pint of beer....I want a icy cold beer to get away from the heat not increase it.


                        I accidentally bought a spicy beer once. I hated it. It was the only beer I hated in my life. Bought the 4-pack of course. Still drank all of it. Didn’t want to waste money. 😅

                          Steve B I could’ve wasted the beer. My palate didn’t like it!

                        I have to wait another week to try it, but I made a bunch of chipotles for a brewing friend a while back. He said it smelled very peppery and was extremely active so we'll find out... plan to cheat and share on SUWYC since technically I cooked the ingredient even if someone else brewed it... but as far as heat in beer, I don't want it spicy but I've had some VERY good ghost pepper beers that had the aroma and slight heat but still did their own thing. Also had a few where I might as well have drank cold hot sauce, no thanks.


                          I've had more than three chili pepper beers, although I can't remember all the names. Stone Brewing makes a pair of them they call "Crime" and "Punishment." SWMBO and I decided we'd try Punishment first, because that was going to be the hotter of the two, right? It was tough to drink. Then we tried Crime. Boy were we wrong. It was far worse, and aptly named if you ask me, because it's a crime to treat beer that way. I won't be going back to the well anytime soon.

                          Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

                          The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

                          The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                          The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                          Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

                          This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

                          3 burner gas grill

                          The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King’s proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills. The quality cast aluminum housing carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty.
