Drink of the Week: Dale's Pale Ale

Somehow, it's mid-July and we've yet to make one of summer's most satisfying eats: beer can chicken. But this is the weekend for it, and today's Drink of the Week will provide a key ingredient. Canned beers often get a bum wrap, but these days there are actually some great craft beers to be found in cans. Dale's Pale Ale is a perfect example. It's a light and snappy beer that has a nice balance of malt and hops, making it perfect for sipping on a hot day and also infusing a grilled chicken with just the right amount of beer flavor. Looks like it's going to be another scorcher this weeked across the country, so invite some friends over, head to the backyard, fire up the grill and let Dale's Pale Ale take care of the rest.
