Fall Football Tailgating Trick

Perfect for fall football celebrations, Oskar Blues Brewery, out of Lyons, Colo., brews up its popular Old Chub in a can.This Scottish strong ale is brewed with hearty amounts of seven different malts, including crystal and chocolate malts, and a smidge of U.S. and U.K. hops. Old Chub also gets a dash of beechwood-smoked grains imported from Bamburg, Germany, home of the world’s greatest smoked beers. Old Chub is eight percent alcohol by volume.The cola-colored beer (almost black) features a tan head, a creamy, skim-milk mouthful, and rich, semi-sweet flavors of caramel and chocolate throughout. The addition of smoked grains gives Old Chub a delicate kiss of smoke on the finish.Old Chub is the beer equivalent of a lightly smoked single malt scotch, or your favorite dark chocolate.Brewers even call it “Rocky Mountain Mutha’s Milk.”- Courtesy of http://www.oskarblues.com

Despite the fact this recipe is from an Oakland Raider fan named Matt, this shrimp recipe is easy and great for warm-weather games. All that’s needed is a camping stove, large pot and:• 2 pounds of large shrimp (don’t shell them)• Six-pack of good beer (perhaps a dark ale such as Old Chub)• 1 pound kielbasa sausage• 2 or 3 bay leaves• Tbsp coriander seeds• Salt and pepperThe night before the game: Slice the kielbasa into one inch slices. Wash the shrimp in cold water.In the parking lot: In a large pot, bring to a boil the beer, sausage, bay leaves, coriander seeds, salt and pepper. Lower heat and simmer for about 10 minutes. Dump in the shrimp and bring back to a boil. Boil for about two minutes (shrimp should turn pink).To serve: Put the shrimp on ice and serve it cold – although it is also tasty hot.Any bottled cocktail sauce will do, or try this homemade recipe:• 2/3 cup ketchup• 1/4 cup horseradish• 2 tbsp hot pepper sauce (less, if preferred)• 1 tbsp fresh lime juice- Courtesy of http://www.femmefan.com
