    New addition to the rotation, but I recently discovered Candied Bacon and my whole world was flipped upside down.

    Pretzels either store bought hard pretzels or if I am at a bar that offers fresh soft pretzels then I go for that.

    One of my newly discovered food snacks to go with beer is shrimp crackers!

    You can make these at home, they fry up in 10 seconds, and you can season them a million different ways when pulled out of the oil. Old bay is a perfect spice with them.

    I made a bunch with different seasonings, and they went so perfectly with beer... just about ANY beer since I was eating them with several styles.
  8. Pistachios roasted & salted.

    Dude. Stop trying to make Chechil happen. It's not going to happen!

    And I'm not backing your cheese based kickstarter either.

    Cheese, charcuterie and nuts are the cornerstone of our beer snack tray. Throw in some chips and salsa, hummus and pita, anything with the words "house cured" or "dry aged". If your beer is aging and evolving, so should yer grub!

    My favorite has got to be garlic stuffed olives. Between the crunch, texture and savory flavor, it's great for when I have the munchies.

    Soft pretzels are awesome with just about any style. I like oatmeal cake with stouts though sweet and dry to clear the palate leaving you thirsty for the next sip.

    I love candied bacon, but I don't feel it pairs well with much.
