    Let's see what everyone has been doing with beer.

    Started this in the morning in the crock pot and it was ready for halftime

    Jackie O's Oro Negro turned out to be the perfect beer to make chili with. I was a little concerned with the bourbon barrel but there's just so many spices in chili, the bourbon was merely an afterthought.

    As good as the chili was, sometimes a good bread bowl makes all the difference

    Cheers,
    Dave

    Love the presentation, that really looks good. I’ll keep that in mind next time I make chili.

    I made Choucroute Garni and had it with a 2011 Old Stock.
    Home fermented sauerkraut, smoked pork neck, bratwurst, cured pork belly, bacon, saffron potatoes, shallots and carrots. Of course I had a Riesling on the side. Otherwise it would just be obscene.

    From a while back, but still a classic: Mongolian beef and sushi, paired with Stillwater Extra Dry Sake Style Saison. (Disclaimer: Food not made by me. :wink:)

    Beelzebub beef stew

    [​IMG]

    I would categorize Beelzebub as a black IPA instead of a stout but it's great in beef stew! A nice rich meal after shoveling/snow blowing and a good choice for Championship sunday.

    Go Pats!

    That looks amazing. Could not imagine necking back an Old Stock with it, but damn your dinner looks fine.

    Late to this party but the only food I ever pair with beer on purpose is Mexican. A nice Modelo with enchiladas is outstanding. From there I’m thinking wine or Prosecco.

    Not the best picture, I know, but more of a general post about how amazing citrusy beers and Indian food are together. This particular pairing is fresh MBC Another One and my favorite Indian spot's chicken tikka masala over rice. Kane Sneakbox is my local go-to with Indian food.

    On Saturday I treated myself to a Drie Fontenien Oude Gueuze with a pate forester (wild mushrooms/wine) and a nice cheese plate, taleggio, and three year aged Gouda. What a combo! Love the sharp acidity and carbonation scrubbing the palate clean.

    Breakfast this morning consisted of a Quiche Lorraine paired with Bell's Amber ale that brings some touches of toasted caramel malt sweetness balanced with some herbal and citric character and adds a light clean bitterness in the ending.

    This Chicago dog from Portillo's made a perfect pairing with Zombie Dust (plastic motel drinkware notwithstanding :wink:).

    Super generic combo, but dang near any Tripel or Dubbel works really well with pizza to me. I get really full pretty fast because it's basically yeast on yeast, but the sweetness of the Tripels washing down the saltiness of the pizza great. Discovered the combo at BJ's with a Devil's Backbone. When they stopped carrying Devils Backbone, I switched to Gulden Draak. I personally think it works better with pizza. But as a stand alone Tripel, I'll reach for Devil's Backbone everytime.

    Going to give a few, some of which people probably do the same and are by no means phantasmagoric. That said, I find it funny that I have these because they are the exception, not the rule. Per the “does anyone else not like drinking beer with food” thread, I typically think food detracts and changes the flavor enough that I usually eat and then drink, not together. Here are the exceptions:

    • Pizza: Always drink a good dunkel (although my favorite pairing is Scafley Scotch ale, which is not a dunkel, but very malty still). I enjoy the combo so much that every time I have a pizza, It’s like “give me dunkel, or give me something else to eat.”
    • Indian: enjoy a good (NE style( IPA. It just works for me. I prefer the cream based Indian dishes, and while I do not think that they are particularly heavy, I think that the IPA is probably “cutting” it very well.
    • Cheese/meat and cheese/cheese and crackers: Really enjoy a good saison with this. It works well, just like you would expect from wine.
    • Gumbo: really enjoy a good, simple Amber or something similar. I tend to specifically lean toward Abita Amber it Abita Purple Haze for Gumbo.
    • Bratwurst in a mustard and onion “gravy” over rice: This is a German brasserie inspired Louisiana dish. Use Amber for the sauce per a Louisiana chef. Works the best. Usually pair it with the same as gumbo above, or perhaps a bock (preference for Abita Andygator or Mardi Gras Bock).
    Note that these Abita beers are not my favorite for the style, but they are my favorite for these dishes.

    While it is not a true pairing, I find that Barleywines do tend to pair well with Steak.

    I'm starting to warm up to the notion that a farmhouse ale or a grisette works well with just about anything. I wish I could find more grisettes. :slight_frown:
