Smoked beer

You heard that right. Smoked. Beer. If you can’t get enough of good smoked flavor when you’re grilling, then this is the craft brew trend you need to check out. Rauchbiers from Bamberg, Germany are the famous originals; their distinctive smoke flavor comes from using malted barley that’s been dried over an open flame. Today’s craft brewer smoked beers use generally the same process, but their flavor is lighter with a “BBQ sweetness,” according to Josh Cody of Colorado Malting Company.
