Beer-b-que or Brew-b-que (beer/brew + bar-b-que)

A “beer-b-que” or “brew-b-que” (beer/brew + bar-b-que) is an event of barbecue/barbeque and beer. “Beer-B-Q” has been cited in print since at least 1959 and “Brew-B-Q” since at least 2006. Budweiser first advertised a recipe for “Beer-B-Cue Sauce” in August 1974.


Urban Dictionary

Don’t forget the Lone Star and brisket; we’re going to Chad’s for the brew-b-que

3 September 1959, Los Angeles (CA) Times, 100 Attend ‘Beer-B-Q’ at Tustin Home of Enderles‎,” pg. D6:
One of the larger parties of the summer in the Tustin area was the “Beer-B-Q” party in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Maurice A. Enderle (Nancy).

1 May 1960, Hartford (CT) Courant, “Know A Dubbidobber? Ever Worn Leotights?,” pg. 1B:
Most of the words brought to light seem to have fairly legitimate uses but what can you say for “Beer-BQ?” A “Beer-BQ” is a barbeque at which beer is the main beverage. This makes sense, but leads you to wonder what people used to serve at the bar at an old fashioned Bar-BQ.

23 August 1967, The Times (San Mateo, CA), pg. 21, col. 5:
Beer-B-Que Seasoning Ideas
What is more fun than a bar-b-que? A beer-b-que!
(Beer is included as a cooking ingredient in several recipes—ed.)

14 September 1975, Chicago (IL) Tribune, pg. N3 ad:
BEER-B-CUE SAUCE
In saucepan combine:
1 cup Budweiser beer ...

11 April 1991, Rocky Mountain News (Denver, CO):
To coincide with the fourth-season return of a Coors Light Beer-B-Que promotion, the dancing cans will don a chef’s hat and carry a hamburger flipper.

11 March 2000, St. Louis (MO) Post-Dispatch, “Readers turn up old recipe for beer-b-cue sauce” by Judith Evans, Lifestyle, pg. 28:
Q: Do you have the recipe for beer barbecue sauce published in a magazine in the late ‘70s or early ‘80s? It was made with Budweiser (no other beer made it taste as good).
Karen Moran, Twin Oaks, Mo.
