Did you know that you don't have to just drink your local favorites: You can make beer a part of your actual meal, too?

No, I'm not talking about a liquid breakfast. I'm talking about new grilling essentials from New Belgium and favorites from Odell that'll allow you to add your favorite alcoholic beverages to your iconic summer grilling staples.

What if you start off with some sauces?

1. Beer sauce

Odell Brewing Company features three on their site: hot sauce, 'hop' sauce, and steak sauce. According to their website, they teamed up with Horsetooth Hot Sauce in Fort Collins to create:

[...]locally made Easy Street Heat (spicy Peach Hot Sauce with an Easy Street Wheat base), Hop Sauce-, an Odell IPA hot sauce (great on eggs!) and 90 Shilling Grilling Sauce (Heinz 57 who?!)

Shop 'em here!

New Belgium also features some new sauces, according to their May newsletter. They featured three new barbecue sauces created with 1554, Fat Tire, and Voodoo Ranger, and we highly recommend slathering these on some ribs. Shop the sauces here.

2. Brew up your vegetables

If spicy's what you're looking for, Odell also shared their recipe for some Odell IPA pickled jalapenos.

3. Beer Meat!

We don't have a cute caption for this one. It is what it is: delicious meat made with your favorite New Belgium beer. NBB teamed up with Niman Ranch to create a 'craft beer collection' of meats, including Voodoo Ranger Bratwurst, Fat Tire Pulled Pork, and more.
