  1. Bring beer with dry crab boil to a boil in a large pot. Add shrimp to boiling beer and place a cover on the pot. Bring the beer again to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook at a simmer for 5 minutes. Remove pot from heat and leave shrimp steeping in the beer another 2 to 3 minutes; drain. Serve immediately.

This was well received at my house. The only thing I did differently was to remove the pot from the heat as soon as it came to a boil after adding the shrimp. I didn't want to over cook the shrimp. I left them in the hot beer for about 5 minutes. Thanks for sharing!

I didn't have the crab boil, so I had to substitute spices I had on hand. I used a blend of minced onion/garlic and some dried parsley and dill. I also didn't want to overcook, so as soon as the shrimp started to boil and turn pink (I used shell on shrimp) I pulled them off the heat, and drained immediately. I then put them in the freezer to cool down to serve as a cold appetizer with some home made cocktail sauce (organic ketchup and horseradish mix).
