I enjoy good beer and good food as much as anyone, but I do not consider myself a foodie and I usually just skim the food recipes/ pairings in BYO and Zymurgy. But tonight I cooked an awesome dish that went so well with the beer I happened to have on hand I want to know what others are enjoying.

I made venison backstrap pinwheels with bleu cheese and spinache filling, chicken fried venison steaks, fresh steamed broccoli, and salad with spicy salsa dressing. I served this sumptious feast along with Santa Fe Brewing's Chicken Killer Barleywine. The rich and creamy venison dish went extremely well with this balanced barleywine-hoppy malty goodness and the freshest lean meat you can get without carving off strips in the field!!!

What are your favorite brew and food combinations? And PLEASE share recipes and pics

I'm still learning beer&food combinations.

I had brie cheese and Lindemans Cuvée René, which was a pretty damn good combo.

There's a book out there called He said beer, She said wine, co-written by Sam Calagione, that talks about both wine and beer pairings. Pretty useful tool for a beginner such as myself.

Try The Brewmaster's Table, by Garrett Oliver.

Good stuff in there.

A good super-sharp white cheddar sliced thick on triscuits and a nice IPA (e.g. Bell's Two Hearted) is a match made in heaven.

Dog **** on a shingle with a nice IPA would likely be great as well!

Buffalo Wings!!

At my house I've kind of modified the wing process. I have a fire pit on the patio that I bought a perforated steel grill to cover. I get a good set of coals going and put the grill on. I use whole wings that have a few dry seasonings on. Garlic Salt, pepper, etc. Then grill away. Then I set up 2 or 3 bowls with a few sauces. Traditional buffalo hot sauce, usually a garlic sauce and sometimes something more in the barbecue range.
