    These have been my consistent goto smokes. I usually prefer either coffee or a good rum or bourbon with my cigars. I'm not a big fan of having a beer with one. But I would like to try to find a beer that pairs good.

    I've been branching out with my beer drinking and I've discovered a whole new world of beers out on the market that weren't around 10 - 15 years ago. So I thought maybe there might be some styles that were more suited for cigars.

    So far; I've gravitated to oatmeal stouts. I like them better then imperial stouts. I've tried Troegs Java Head Stout and Samuel Smiths Oatmeal. They're both pretty good.

    I usually smoke 1-2 cigars a week. I pair with either scotch, or usually a stout. Left Hand Milk Stout, Terra Pin Moo Hoo or WnB Stout, Southern Tier Mokah, Cigar City Maduro, any of the variety of Yeti's, The list could go on and on.

    i agree with stouts and porters work well also. any beer with a light body just doesn't work well in my opinion. i have to say though that i find many other drinks to pair better with cigars. spirits (especially bourbon), wine, coffee and I even really enjoy a coke when i can't drink.
    my one rule with beer is to not open anything too good though as the cigar tends to dull my palate.
