    My apologies if this topic has been hashed out before - I scanned through several pages of threads and didn't see anything...

    Have you ever accidentally (or intentionally) paired a beer with something and it clashed in epic fashion? Just a few minutes ago I was sitting here at my computer munching on some frosted oatmeal cookies I had in my desk drawer and needed to wash them down with something, so I reached for the Magic Hat #9 I'd opened about 15 minutes earlier. Yeah, that was a bad idea. I had to go get a drink of water just to get the taste out of my mouth.

    Any of you have any examples?

    Wintergreen Life Savers and Bourbon County Stout. :(

    Isn't drinking #9 the same thing as drinking water?

    Apparently not. Water doesn't taste bad with cookies.

    I stand corrected.

    Dogfish head Brown ale and crabs. Really wanted the beer, and it wasn't the worst combo, but finished that beer right quick before I had another bite... :)
