Boil 'Till Red

Salt a mess of fresh blue crabs
Steamed in a beer broth,
with onions and Old Bay spice. 
Mix vinegar with
Worcestershire sauce.
Pick, dip, eat.

note: Have plenty of cold beer and paper towels on hand!

Inspired by Sara's Low country Boil contest

    I can safely say I've never eaten this kind of thing, but I'd give it a go. I like the sound of beer being in there!
