Back to Blog List Page

Raise a pint to this delicious recipe full of some of our favorite things – shrimp, butter and beer. The best part? Cooking in a foil packet makes prep, grilling and especially cleanup a snap.

    5 min - 10 min
    6 min
    16 min


  • 1 ½ lbs. of peeled, deveined large shrimp
  • ½ cup lager-style beer
  • 3 tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 1 lemon
  • 3-4 cloves of garlic
  • Salt, pepper and Old Bay seasoning, to taste


  1. Preheat grill to medium.
  2. Lay a large piece of foil on a flat surface, turning up the edges slightly to hold the ingredients in while prepping. Tear off a similarly sized piece of foil and set aside.
  3. Spread the shrimp onto the foil. Add the beer, juice of the lemon, roughly chopped garlic, butter and seasonings, to taste, on top the shrimp.
  4. Place the other piece of foil on top, and fold the edges tightly together to create a sealed packet.
  5. Place the packet onto the grate and grill with the lid closed until the shrimp are cooked through, about 5-6 minutes.
  6. Remove and let rest for a few minutes before opening – be careful of the steam – and serve!
