Cuisine in Milwaukee is strongly influenced by the city’s German heritage; Miller Park is one of the only baseball stadiums where brats outsell hot dogs. Miller Lite is the Official Beer of Milwaukee Summerfest and Beer-Can Chicken is a great way to incorporate this sponsor into your meal.
There is an element of showmanship to this dish, as your friends and family will be mesmerized by the cooking method, which involves inserting the beer can into the cavity of the chicken before roasting it. When it is done, lift the bird off the can (being careful not to spill hot beer) and carve for serving.
