What cigars go good with what beers?
 
I was drinking my first batch I ever brewed yesterday and it was an esb. My bro asked me if I wanted to smoke a cigar and I agreed.

Most cigar smokers don't like drinking beer with the cigar but I do. I actually really enjoyed the way my english pale ale complimented my medium boddied cigar. Anyone know any other good cigar/beer comparisons?

I love beer and cigars!

Check out some of the cigar forums on the web. I personally am a member to Puff, a lot of good guys there and some good threads. Do a quick search and you should find some great ideas. I find a lot of finding what pairs well is trial and error, but you may be pointed in a good direction. check it out.

Barleywine or RIS for a fuller cigar, vanilla porter or oatmeal stout for a light/mild smoke.

I love a montecristo and a good malty bock. Gotta be almost flat though, I don't like the carbonation when I smoke. I haven't found many hoppy beers I like with cigars.

I like a darker beer with losts of nutty/chocolate/caramel falvors with my medium to full bodied maduro smokes.

An american barleywine with a medium-bodied cigar was pretty tasty. The other week my Ordinary Bitter paired very well with a Rocky Patel 1999 Connecticut.

I was thinking a Les Jimes by la aurora with a nice brown ale... yum. Or even a nice light cigar with a heffe...

IPA with a macanudo cigar.

I haven't tried this combo, but I imagine it would be good. Rocky Patel 1961 with a Belgian Witbier. Lightness and phenolics of the beer would probably help balance the robust spicy nature of the cigar. Mmmmm.
