Simple Beer BBQ Sauce

I want to post a few beer related recipes and recipes for beer pairings here on the site. Let’s start off with a simple and tasty BBQ Sauce using a nice malty beer.

2 cups ketchup
3-Tbls chili powder
12 oz Bock, Brown, Vienna, Kolsch or other malty beer
1 tsp smoked paprika
1Tbls regular paprika
1 Tbls garlic powder
2 Tbls Yellow Mustard
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (add more if you want more kick)
2 Tbls brown sugar; packed
2 Tbls molasses
2 Tbls apple cider vinegar
Whisk all ingredients in a sauce pan and turn heat to medium, bringing sauce to a slow boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes. Serve with your favorite BBQ.
