Like basting a hotdog in the beer?

 

I've heard worse ideas

 

I was thinking about a sausage since I like beer brats but yes.

Ok sausage sounds like a much better idea

 

Is there a beer that is good for basting or marinading

Do not drink coffee so would never try it.  It would sell better in Hawaii where people watch game with breakfast.  I watched games there for a number of years when I would go to Hawaii for Christmas and would see guys eating eggs and drinking beer and coffee.

I'll go you one better.  I don't drink coffee or beer, I'm definitely not their target customer

I'm mean that's opinion

 

90% of buffalonians would take a sahlen over a zweigles and 90% of Rochester would be the opposite

 

sales and demographic show that

 

I actually recently changed my preference to Hofmann's which are better than both.  Their Jalapeno Cheddar Brat is excellent.  They also have the best All-Beef.

I despise coffee but have found that I like coffee flavored stouts.  It isn't as overwhelming as you would think. 

 

Try it - ya just might like it.  then again - maybe not.

I like beer and I like Zweigles, but I don't know if I could drink this.  Cheers to those who try -- they are braver than I.

 

The beer doesn't taste like notdawgs,  it is a play off the color.  Red for a red ale and White for a white ale.  Rochester based brewery where those damn dawgs are made.  I hate em.

 

I pray someone has already stated this but it was a DOH moment to me.....I happen to like craft brews......

Beer is much to important in my life to trifle with novelty ideas and gimmicks.

I know. What's wrong with a Heineken or a good Canadian beer!

Make Me Wanna Stout | Big Ditch Brewing Co. | Buffalo, New York

1994221524_MakeMeWannaStout.thumb.jpeg.bb9ecd32d36b5711b42c4f8085f11ccf.jpeg

Make Me Wanna Stout was so popular during football season that it's now available year-round in Western New York. Courtesy of Buffalo News

Tribute to: Bills' fight song, "Shout"

Beer style: Coffee and cream stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.2%

When it was brewed: It was first made in 2016, but Big Ditch started canning it only last year. It became so popular around Western New York that it eventually became available year-round.

Why a coffee and cream stout? Here's what president and co-founder Matt Kahn had to say: "We were looking for something that was good for pregaming. Pregaming is a well-partaken-in tradition for Buffalo Bills fans, you could say, both at home and at the stadium. We were sort of thinking, 'Hey, wake up, have your coffee with your beer, too.' The ABV is light enough that you can get a few in you, get some caffeine in you, too. It's a good wake-up-and-go beer. It's almost like a can of alcoholic iced coffee."

Key ingredients: Coffee (the beans come from a local roaster called Public Espresso), milk, sugar, roasted barley, oatmeal, U.S. Northern Brewer hops

Yuck!!!! Probably tastes like it came straight out of the ***** ditch!  NOT that I know what that tastes like!  😇

And I thought there were some intellectual beer drinkers on this forum!

 

Definitely going to try this when I'm up there in the fall.  Sounds like a perfect tailgating beer on a chilly morning.

On the lower end of the scale, Budweiser could be re-branded under the name 'Buffalo p!ss'.

Zweigle def better than Sahlen's, although I might take a Hoffman German frank or white hot over both. Syracuse does make a good dog.

 

As for Italian sausage, gotta go with Garafolo's in Oswego. Best I've ever had by far. They even make an extra hot that is not easy to put away.

The thought of drinking a milk stout in this summer heat is vomit inducing. 

lol, Yeah i drink dark beers all year round. Most people think Im crazy.

Ive had the Big Ditch make you wanna stout and it is OK. Nothing to scream home about. Now the Southern Tier Nitro s'mores I just tried recently is hands down the best stout I've tasted in a long long time. Everyones taste is different though.

I love a good stout...when it's cold out. Also, I don't know if stouts are good for tailgating. I can't really drink more than 3. To me it's more of a session beer.
