Default Beer and Scotch Pairing

It might sound silly pairing alcohol with more alcohol, but my late grandfather drank "a beer and a shot" pretty much every day for over 60 years, and it's become a bit of a tradition and favourite drink of mine.

I thought this would be a good place to get a few ideas about brewing a beer with a scotch in mind.

Has anyone done this? Any general thoughts? Personally I've found that high quality lagers and lighter ales with firm carbonation work well, they seem to cleanse the palate and the alcohol of the scotch seems to bring out subtle grainy flavours in the beer. Scotch and Guiness however, is less than ideal!

Some of the scotches in my collection include various highland parks, lagavulin, laphroaig, macallan, benriach, glendronach, compass box etc.. I don't have a specific pairing in mind, nor am I looking for a recipe, just thoughts that you might have or considerations.

Cheers

Add a good cigar and you pretty much round out a good night!
