loki red aleThere are lots of rules to follow when it comes to barbecue, but when choosing a beer to pair with it, here’s a pretty safe bet: if it’s red, it’s all right.

So snap a cap on a Fearless Brewing Company Loki Red Ale.

For years, the brewers there have been tweaking and retweaking this brew, but they’ve finally settled on one that’s malty, hoppy, smokey and piney, and these 16-ouncers are about as perfect as a barbecue beer and can be.

Just watch out: they’re as as playful as the trickster for whom they’re named, but they’re also as strong as Thor, clocking in at a formidable 7.7 ABV.
