I love seafood and Anchor Steam Beer.
I love food and I love beer. Capiche?
Not sure where this thread is going but I enjoy pairing food and beer. Especially like coffee/chocolate heavy stouts or porters with chocolate or mocha desserts.
Having the baby with some dark chocolate cake at the moment
Don't put FBS on your Honey Nut Cheerios. It might seem like a good idea, but trust me on this one.
I've been to some Beer Dinners that were very nice. BJ's Brewhouse does them among others and at a good price. They pair beer with a dish.
I'd use Lone Star.
Orval with anything.
I love pairing beer with food. There used to be a "share your pairing" thread, but it seems to get buried rather quickly these days.
Here's a 6 course dinner I did this year with morel mushrooms.
The only foods I really like with beer are Mexican, and streaks , Italian etc I prefer wine, or cocktails.
Exactly. Just like that.
I have been to BJ's up here and down there and have to agree they do put on a good showing.
With my wife's love of cooking and our mutual love of beer, we love doing beer and food pairings, really lets under appreciated styles shine! We started off doing pairings with cheese and charcuterie boards and built up from there. If anyone is interested this was helpful for us to start years ago
I love pork roll and cheese on a roll with a nice fresh Cape May IPA
Yes, was in a random grocery store last nite and found one 2.5 years old. Saving it for my next special meal
And now I'm both hungry for tacos and on the lookout for a Negra Modelo snifter...
I prefer my pork roll with egg and cheese on a kaiser bun, but with a brown ale
Pad thai with a Belgian Saison
Oh damn.. ..Orval paired up with some lobster? My mouth is watering over here at the thought of it.
There's this general resource:
And I know there are several cookbooks using beer as ingredient, so you'd think a beer used in a recipe might drink well with the meal overall.
A well executed pairing dinner makes for a nice evening. I did one with Allagash and a local restaurant several years ago. I'd pay the hundred bucks again in a heartbeat, it was that good and that enlightening. Beer used in a recipe developed for that purpose, then the same beer paired to go with the course, an explanation by both the brewer and the head chef as to how the beer and food worked together - it was a great time.
I think this is a good idea for a thread, in my opinion. That opinion and $0.99 will get you a gas station coffee...
Food takes up space in my stomach which leaves less room for beer. I don't like that.
I don't do conscious pairings too often, but a spicy beer with polenta is ace.
ever splash an ipa in some chicken marinade for tacos? delicious. stouts go good with pancakes too
Man I just had my last beer of the night with food:
Weltenburger Dunkel at room temp with pumpernickel bread slightly toasted topped with New Zealand ghee and Scotts Limburger/cheddar cheese spread. man it's to die for.
I'm all about pairing - if you have two great things (food & beer) that can mutually make each other better, why not embrace it! I used to be primarily a wine drinker but am becoming more and more convinced that beer is the best pairing for cheese. I've yet to find a beer pairing for fish that I really like (though steamed mussels and Belgian style beers are nice together. I'd definitely appreciate a more searchable pairing forum though. My latest pairing success is fried halloumi and nectarine salad with Sloop's Juice Bomb.
The only beer and food pairing that I actually try to do is Belgium-style sours (e.g. lambic, Flemish red, saison) with a very sharp cheddar or gouda cheese on a basic cracker without competing flavors (low-salt Triscuits are my preference). A smoked cheese is also acceptable. I think the fruity sour flavors of the beer play well off the salty sharp bite of the cheese and the crackers balance it out.
Really the only conscious pairing I do is pork rinds (good ones) and an Orval; that's just magic.
But carbonation helps most beers pair with most foods (breakfast cereal is not a "food"). So that makes it easier.
Try Valmy beer washed Door Artisan Cheese and Central Waters Satin Solitude
Four Lokos go well with eating bath salts if you're into that kinda thing
I would sear some nice sized scallops in a spicy Cajun dust with freshly made cole slaw. Oh, and use an old cast iron pan, hopefully your grandmothers..
The logic of this paring had escaped me until today when I had lunch at my local brewery. They offered a special dish that included two pancakes, two eggs (any style) and their 'sausage of the week' a blueberry brat that was created by a meat shop in a nearby town. My local brewery, Territorial Brewing, is a German-inspired brewery with most of their beers and food menu having German roots. By coincidence right now, they have a bock on tap that was brewed with coffee, and this beer was reccommended as a pairing with the meal. The pairing was great with the coffee taste going very nicely with the typical breakfast food items. All that was missing was some rye toast.
So consider any coffee-flavored beer as a pairing with your breakfast (probably not dry cereal though) regardless of what time of day you have your meal.
Triple Crème with a funky gueuze or ice cider.
Gotta get some Orval. BAer's have never let me down. When I see a beer that's been on BA, I cannot remember ever getting a bad beer. Cheers to my friends here.
