    I am eating a heavy garlic meal, what style or specific beer pairs well with garlic?

    Thank you

    Brown or amber. Maybe a porter or dry stout... avoid hops and sweetness.

    There is a "Beer and Food" forum in the subculture section. I'm sure they would love to tackle this question, but I'm sure they would love more info. Is your "garlic heavy" meal garlicky and spicy? Tomatoey? Rich? Light? Or are you just eating raw garlic cloves. The details will impact the pairing.

    IPA sounds good with it!

    this heavy garlic meal. More details are needed like other ingredients and cuisine type would be helpful. but a nice Triple or Pils or Saison might cover a lot of the bases, If its a garlicky Asian dish then any dry lager or big IPA would work wonders.
