After reading the wonderful reviews, I was anxious to try this recipe. I prepared it exactly as described, and marinated it for 3 1/2 hours- ample time for the flavors to delevop, according to the recipe guidelines. I LOVE garlic & I LOVE beer, so this sounded terrific! I was actually rather disappointed. The beer flavor was very subtle, and I used a fairly robust brew. The garlic was nice, but I'd have increased it a bit if I'd known how flat (no pun intended!) the overall dish would be. It was alright, certainly edible. We were planning to eat these as an appetizer. I also prepared an old standby recipe that evening (shrimp skewered with bacon & marinated in teriyaki sauce, then grilled) and those were a HUGE hit! The beer shrimp sadly languished on the plate...
They might be better as part of a dish, like in shrimp tacos with other zippy ingredients. I really wanted to like these! So simple, and two of my favorite flavors. Just not anything remarkable, according to the friends we served them to.
