Preheat one side of barbecue to medium-high heat. Cut 3 deep slits in each drumstick. Transfer to large bowl; sprinkle with salt, pepper and hot pepper flakes. Drizzle with oil, mixing well to coat.

Place drumsticks on grill over direct heat, meaty side up; close lid and cook, turning occasionally, for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, in small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat; stir in maple syrup, mustard and beer. Cook until glaze is bubbling, about 5 minutes. Keep warm.

Remove drumsticks from grill and brush them with some of the glaze. Return chicken to grill, meaty side down; close lid and cook over indirect heat for 5 minutes. Brush drumsticks with glaze; cook until juices run clear when pierced with fork near the bone, about 5 minutes. Transfer to serving dish. Sprinkle with chives.
