Your Favorite Food/Beer Pairings
I'm enjoying a Samuel Smith's Old Brewery Pale Ale right now with some nice aged gouda. It's awesome. The caramel richness of the beer pairs perfectly with the caramel/toffee flavors of the cheese. And the slight sharpness and bit of saltiness in the cheese then cuts through to clean the palate to get it ready for more of the beer. What's your favorite pairing?

For some reason, hoppy and chocolate work really well for me.

sushi and stout.

IPA and anything grilled, preferably a steak.

Double-IPA and german champignon cheese. Blew me away. I wouldn't have guessed it either.

Pretty standard response, but I recently had some "insanely hot" buffalo wings and a Bell's Two Hearted Ale.

Oh, it was heaven.

Man oh man where do I start?

My favorite pairing is a schooner of something basic, like 8 ball oatmeal stout or Samuel Smiths take on the recipe with a medium rare steak, garlic mashers and some grilled asparagus. Ipa also goes well with this simple dish. A nice fatty burger and a pilsner is also very nice. The pilsner is crisp and refreshing and doesn't fill up your gullet.

I like amber and pale ales paired with curry dishes and most other Asian foods, though a lager or pilsner works nicely too. I'll get back to this thread, I need a beer.

Hoppy IPA and funky blue cheese on toasted baguette. (or girl on girl...)

Uh, this provided me with a mild lol. :D

At first I thought you were talking about the steak.
