I picked up a bottle of Consecration from Russian River over the weekend, and I was wondering what I should prepare to eat with it. I was wondering if anyone had good food pairings with it. To make things more difficult, my New Year's Resolution was to go pescetarian, so no meat besides seafood is allowed. Any and all advice or banter is desired.

My $0.02 would be a nice tuna steak.

Black pepper and garlic crusted, seared and left nice and pink in the middle.

Garlic mashers, asparagus (now in season).

Damn... I am hungry.

A little late here I think, but I would actually go with a white fish due to the concecration being tart. Use a little bit of the beer to aid in steaming and give it a quick foil pouch steaming along with some onion, garlic and ginger (salt and pepper). Then have it alongside some roasted oven fries and as mentioned above, asparagus (totally in season and excellent right now)

Great, thanks. Safe to assume that you visit RR frequently, since you're in Santa Rosa?

The best beer pairing I have yet to enjoy, is a pair of beers.
