    On the plate: lemon caper Rock Fish, fried polenta, Irish Salt Potatoes with Butter.
    In the Glass: read the label
    Not exactly the best pairing, but damn it is all good on its own. Fish would be better with a Saison or Wit.

    I'm sorry I didn't take a photo, but Founders Backwoods Bastards pairs really well with honey roasted peanuts. I wanted a light snack that would pair really well with a big bourbon barrel aged beer. I know strong, savory foods like blue cheese or prosciutto are recommended, but sometimes you want something less intense than that. Turns out that peanuts pair really well with the big boozy beers. They're light and tasty and yet they didn't feel overpowered by the huge beer.

    The natural progression for the day after chili, is chili cheese dogs, paired with Founders Solid Gold Lager.

    No picture today. Brats, parboiled in Metropolitan Iron Works Altbier, onions, & Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning, then finished on the grill. Toppings, just diced onions and yellow mustard. Paired with Metropolitan Iron Works Alt, of course.

    So there is a Pho place that just opened near my place and so I had to try it. I figured a wheat beer might be a good match and it ended up being a textbook good pairing (to me at least).
    [​IMG]
    Just the aroma of the soup brings out phenolic character in the beer both in flavor and aroma. The soft and slightly fruity beer really cleanses the mouth nicely and didn't even clash with the strong basil flavor of certain bites. Really just about a perfect pairing. Crisp for the salty broth.
    Rich and hoppy with the meat.
    Fruity and spicy with the anise flavors of the soup.
    Absolutely recommended and I will certainly have it again!

    A rare day working from home so I decided to make a meat and cheese plate from whatever I had in the fridge.

    Beer: Von Trapp Bock Bier
    Food: Rye crackers, pepper jack cheese, whole grain mustard, spicy brown mustard, Gruyère cheese, hummus, cornichons, and brown sugar ham.

    The beer and Gruyère would have been a good enough pairing on its own but it was delicious with everything else on the plate as well. Cheers!

    A couple meals over a couple days with a couple beers.

    The first was "Asian Glazed" pork tenderloin, potatoes and asparagus with Orval.
    [​IMG]
    In my book Orval is about as close to a universal pairing beer as there is. It did well here, too. With the food (especially the meat) it tasted a little more leathery/earthy. Nice bite for the spiciness. Something like a saison or a pilsner would maybe have been better for my tastes, but it was still a damn tasty meal.

    The second was a melt and homefries nubs with the leftovers and a California Common I recently brewed. It was the first beer I've made that surpassed what I would call "good". It was a great pairing as well. I'm a big fan of pub-y meals like this with moderately malt beers, so it was made to be.

    Santé!

    Looks like the share your pairing forum was eliminated. Perhaps we can keep it going in its own thread in Beer talk.

    I'm doing a low carb diet. I was craving some fried fish so decided to do some pork rind encrusted flathead catfish nuggets. Caught on a limb line at mark twain. 40lb'r! Paired with bacon fat/vinegar braised greens (collard and kale) washed it down with Static electricity DIPA from perennial.

    Hoping a mod could move my post to the share your pairing thread. Then they can close this one.

    I think you've won this thread already. I'll post my English pale and aged cheddar some other time.

    Having 2015 bells third coast old ale with a sandwich cookie. Two oatmeal raisin cookies with maple creme in the middle. Great pairing for the beer.
