Assorted fine cheeses and beer are about the perfect pairing for me. I love my Indian Food with an IPA as well.

Speaking of cheeses, I tried grilled halloumi cheese at my brother in laws on the weekend. Oh My God! That is among the greatest things I have ever tried. It went really well with the Corona's my sister had around.

Another vote for cheese. It's great cuz there's a cheese for every beer and vis versa. Pretzels and peanuts are great too. On of my faves other than aged sharp cheddar with an IPA is hot pork skins with Tabasco sauce and an IPA.

OK here is my lil secret snack. Goes great with an IPA.

Spicy bean nuts

2 tsp Olive oil
1 can of garbanzo beans aka chic peas
*cayenne pepper (Varies on how hot you like these. I would start with a few shakes and head up to a few tsp to start.)
1 tsp of jalapeno juice
1 tsp garlic pepper

1. Pre heat oven to 350F
2. Open and rinse beans under cool water (I use a colander for this.)
3. Mix jalapeno juice (Like the liquid in a jar of jalapeno slices) with olive oil and toss beans in it until they are equally covered.
4. Mix cayenne with garlic pepper and sprinkle over beans as evenly as possible.
5. In an oven safe pan or cookie sheet, bake for about 40 minutes. It may take longer, you want them to be crunchy.
6. Allow to cool slightly and serve warm.

Notes:
- These should be slightly spicy, not melt your face hot. This range varies for everyone.
- I have never stored these so I have no idea how long they will keep, they just do not last long enough to store, lol.

I'll put my vote in for cheese. There really is a cheese for every beer. My preferred pairings are:
  • Sharp and/or slightly funky cheeses with IPA
  • Smoked cheeses with brown ale, porter, etc.
  • Mild cheeses with Belgian styles and wheats
I've even put light cheese and honey together on a cracker and had it with mead. Delicious.

1) Definitely cheese.
2) Hot wings and Pale Ales or Wits. (depends on my mood)

But then again I like drinking beer and eating sweets like cookies or cake - my wife thinks I'm gross, but I love it.

I also agree with cheese, but beer actually goes well with cookies or cake sometimes.

For instance, one of my favorite pairings is chocolate (or something chocolatey) with a nice porter or stout. Heck, I've even dunked my Oreos in a Young's Double Chocolate Stout. Whoever thinks sweets can't pair with beer hasn't tried Cookies and Milk (Stout)!

A Sweetwater IPA with my made-from-scratch red chicken curry is heavenly.
