I understand why it is named Boilermaker because you can taste both the beer, yeasty as LW says) and the tequila, which gives it a bite. The monterey jack that I used also had jalapenos in it. So I got a double kick from the chipotle and jalapenos. By the way, isn't a boilermaker a shot of tequila dropped (shot glass and all) into a glass of beer? Something is telling me from my youthful years that this is what a boilermaker is. Now mind you, [b]I[/b] never drink those. I made this for ZWT III 2007 - Mexico Region
