In a very large pot (12-quart) combine the water, beer (if using), Old Bay seasoning and salt. Bring to a boil over high heat. Add the potatoes, onions and garlic and cook for 8 minutes.
Add the sliced sausage and cook for another 5 minutes.
Add the corn and cook for 7 minutes. Make sure to gently stir everything together after each addition of ingredients.
Stir in the shrimp and cook until pink, about 4 minutes. Be careful not to overcook the shrimp at this point, or else they’ll become rubbery.
Once done, carefully drain the cooking liquid and then turn out the shrimp boil onto a very large platter, a large baking sheet or onto a table that has been lined with newspaper or brown butcher paper. Sprinkle with more Old Bay seasoning if desired. Serve with lemon wedges and enjoy!
