Directions

Prep time: 30 mins to 1 hr

Pour the Steam Whistle Pilsner, vinegar, and water into a tall gallon stockpot. Add the Old Bay seasoning, cover and heat to a boil. When the blend is boiling rapidly, add the shrimp and cook for 1 - 2 mins, or until the shrimp turns pink. The flesh will continue to cook in the shell, so don't overcook. Drain the shrimp in a colander.

Before serving, blend the minced garlic and Creole seasoning, and butter and toss the shrimp in this spicy blend.
