    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?

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

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

    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... :slight_smile:
