I've got a amarillo/simcoe/nelson sauvin brew now that I made some shish kabobs to pair up with and it worked really well.
String Pork tenderlon, Chicken breast, Pineapple and Bell peppers onto wooden skewers and marinate them in the beer for about 10 hours, flipping once. I topped them with some Mango Chipotle hot sauce. Bake them in the oven in tin foil at 400* for about 20-25 minutes or until cooked through (depending on the thickness of your cut. Mine were pretty thick so they took about half an hour).
Turned out great! The pineapple really helped to accentuate the fruity notes and make them a more desired flavor. Very tropical tasting
