  • 1 12oz Cans Beer

  1. Cut the top of the husk off the corn and removed a few of the outside layers of the husk.
  2. Place corn, in the husk, in a deep baking dish. Pour the beer over the corn and add additional water if needed to fully cover.
  3. Soak for 1 hour.
  4. Remove from the liquid and place on a microwave safe plate. Microwave for 5 minutes.
  5. Once finished, removed the husk and silk. Brush with melted butter and season with salt and pepper.
  6. Place on a very hot grill to sear all sides, about 3-5 minutes total.
  7. Serve with additional butter if desired.


  • Gluten-free - Omit the beer and soak the corn in water.
