“A malty, sharp, chilly & hot breathtaking blast of flavor we used to enjoy poolside in Phoenix. Recipe from the Cafe Terra Cotta in Tucson. Later the Black Mountain Brewing Company in Cave Creek began brewing their own Chili Beer with a whole Serrano chili in the bottle, an equally good poolside libation.”
