Scotch for barbecuers

The typical barbecue drink seems to be beer. I have nothing against beer. I like beer, in fact. I'm probably most partial to nut brown ales, especially English nut brown ales. I like microbrews, too, and I think it's great how good beers are easier to find today than they used to be (however, I think the day of the local microbrewery restaurant has mostly passed...
