What's your beer of choice when eating BBQ?

I just learned that today, April 7, is National Beer Day; so, naturally, I'm wondering what beer folks prefer when eating BBQ. A long time ago, I asked what your DRINK of choice is when eating BBQ. Today, I ask what BEER you prefer when eating BBQ. Feel free to give different answers, based on the type of BBQ.

It depends on the sauce or rub. Deep spice and dry calls for something lighter, refreshing, like Rolling Rock or a better version of that style-- the kind of beer that's too watery without food. Vinegar-based tangy sauces, I'd go fruity, like Aprihop, or crisply cutting like Corona. For a rich red sauce? More complex, maybe Ruthless Rye, or a triple-hopped IPA.
